Property claims due to lightning are not very common in Ireland but there a number of cases that happen each year. A strike of lightning can be extremely severe and can have devastating and sometimes fatal consequences. Even if your property is properly earthed a lightning strike still has the potential to cause significant damage to your property. In most cases a lightning strike may only affect the electrical components of the property such as the main consumer board, sockets, tv points, fridge, washing machine, tv’s, computers, etc but it can also in some instances cause damage to the Building itself either by igniting a fire or by leaving severe cracking to walls and plastering.
