Lightning Injuries

One of nature’s most damaging phenomena is lightning. Lightning strikes have the ability to severely injure or even kill humans. Though many individuals consider lightning strikes to be totally random acts of nature, the fact is that certain situations may make individuals more prone to being struck.

In some cases, individuals suffer lightning injuries when they are on property owned by another party because the property subjected them to a greater lightning strike risk. If you or someone you love suffered lightning injuries after visiting another person’s property, contact the Waukesha premises liability lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C.®, at (800) 242-2874.

Conditions That Increase the Risk of a Strike

Lightning is a bolt of electricity, meaning that it shares its properties with the same electricity we use to power our homes. As such, lightning is attracted to certain conditions, such as:

  • Metal buildings and structures
  • Large bodies of water
  • Individuals who are not under shelter

Meeting any of these conditions during a storm may put an individual at increased risk for a lightning strike. In some cases, visitors or guests are unknowingly exposed to these conditions on someone else’s property, and they could suffer serious injuries or even death as a result.
