So your compressor shorted out, ignighted the oil vapor in the crankcase and blew out the terminal block. Not an item covered by any homeowners insurance I know of.
If that was the failure, you and the contractor that signed the paper may be guilty of insurance fraud.
If it really was due to a lightning strike, cudos to your insurance company for stepping up and taking care of it for you.
