Dallas & Houston Lightning Damage Claim Lawyers
Although it can be fascinating to watch outside your window, lightning can cause severe damage not only to people caught outside in a thunderstorm, but also to your residential property. A bolt of lightning can produce up to 40,000 amperes of current with a temperature of over 90,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightning not only kills over 100 people across the United States every year, but it also causes billions of dollars in property damage when bolts strike homes.
If your home gets struck by lightning, you are going to need property insurance benefits to help lessen the financial burden of paying for repairs. Unfortunately, many insurance companies act in bad faith and either underpay or fail to pay on legitimate claims. If you have had your claim delayed, denied, or diminished by your insurance company, contact the Dallas lightning damage claim lawyers of Grisham & Kendall, PLLC, at(713) 999-5085 today to schedule a free consultation with an experienced attorney.

Consequences of Lightning Strikes & Thunderstorms
Striking the earth over 31 million times a year, lightning is extremely dangerous to people and property. Lightning not only produces a temperature that is nine times as hot as the surface of the sun, but it can also strike quickly and unexpectedly. Some common consequences of lighting on an individual’s property include:
- Can easily cause a home to catch on fire, causing extensive damage
- May strike trees, causing them to fall onto a structure
- Destroy electronics, appliances, and other home equipment
- Broken windows due to high winds or hail
- Damage to building structure or foundation due to extremely high winds
- Roof damage / leaks
- Floor damage due to flooding
- Damage to additional structures on the property
You should not have to deal with the added aggravation of an insurer’s efforts to avoid paying a rightful claim when you are already wrestling with damage to your home.
Thunderstorms can be mild, causing little to no damage, or they can be unpredictable flurries of strong wind, hail, rain, and sleet that can cause significant damage to any and all property in its path. Homeowners who deal with property damage from thunderstorms greatly depend on their insurance companies to help them secure the funds they need to rebuild or recover from the destruction left behind by a storm. Unfortunately, some insurance companies do not hold up their end of an insurance policy and underpay or refuse to pay on legitimate insurance claims.
