Few Understand the Aftermath of a Lightning Strike
Victims of lightning strikes are rare, but those who have experienced this phenomenon know that it’s not an experience that goes away quickly or easily. It’s estimated that approximately 2,000 people globally are killed by lightning each year, and in the United States the average is 51 people killed each year. For about 350-400 people who survive lightning strikes every year in America, the long term injuries and effects cause far more havoc than the initial trauma of the lightning strike.
Ranging from physical injuries such as burns, organ damage, and hearing loss to physiological damage such as anxiety, depression, and PTSD, the effects of a lightning strike to a human being are a very serious issue, and unfortunately there are very few resources or programs designed specifically for these victims. Until now – Lightning Victims of America was established to fill this gap and help people across America heal from these unique and lasting wounds.
