One of my friends just got hit by a power surge and it damaged a lot of electrical equipment. Could my friend collect compensation to replace the damaged items?
The entire street was also hit in case that is relevant.
The power network is owned by UK power networks.
The cause of the surge is unknown, however it did not happen during a storm making us think that it was not lightning. A few theories are rodents in the transformer or trees causing the lines to touch, both of which would suggest poor maintanance.
