Lightning Expert Witness & Consultation Services: Setting the Global Standard

Our scientists and engineers offer a wide spectrum of lightning expertise and knowledge. We provide expert witness services for lightning-related loss & lightning injury litigation.

The raw power of lightning can cause catastrophic damage and also lead to complex legal disputes, thus, the need for supremely qualified expert witnesses is paramount. At Scientific Lightning Solutions (SLS), we stand unrivaled as the world’s most highly qualified team of lightning experts.

People or property caught in the path of lightning typically experience property damage, fires, injuries, and even death. The stochastic behavior of lightning and the limited number of experts with an in-depth understanding of its behavior present problems for insurance companies, property owners, and family members attempting to sort out causation and effects.

Our team is composed of seasoned lightning scientists and electrical engineers who bring an exhaustive understanding of the intricate physics governing lightning behavior. Up-to-date with the latest research and technological advancements in the field, we provide incisive insights into the causation and ramifications of lightning events. Whether you’re dealing with insurance complexities or property damage evaluations, our testimony cuts through the ambiguity, providing unassailable technical authority.

We offer a comprehensive range of consultation services that extend well beyond the courtroom. From identifying the origins of a lightning strike and evaluating subsequent damage to outlining comprehensive protection and mitigation strategies for future events, our counsel stands as the gold standard in lightning-related expertise. Areas of our unparalleled expertise include:

  • Atmospheric and Lightning Physics
  • State-of-the-Art Lightning Protection and Grounding Design
  • Rigorous Lightning Risk Assessments
