Lightning Strikes

Lightning strikes are considered a relatively rare phenomenon, but the reality is that they happen, and when they do, the results can be devastating. Although it may seem like lightning strikes are purely random accidents, there are steps a property owner can take to minimize the risks, and failing to do so may expose them to liability.

If you or a loved one has been struck by lightning while on someone else’s property, contact Cincinnati lightning strike attorney Stepleton Dugan, LLC at 513-321-7733 to learn more about your legal options.

Preventing Lightning Tragedies

If lightning should strike and people are nearby, devastation is nearly guaranteed. But despite lightning being considered a “freak accident”, a property or business owner has a responsibility to protect their guests from such a possibility, especially in places where lightning may be particularly damaging, such as a swimming pool.

There are numerous reasons that a property owner may be considered liable for injuries resulting from a lightning strike, depending on the circumstances:

  • A swimming pool manager neglecting to vacate a swimming pool when lightning is in the area
  • A private lake owner or boat dock operator allowing boats to enter a lake during a thunderstorm or other weather condition in which lightning is possible
  • A golf course allowing golfers to remain on the course during a storm
