Your car was just unlucky. The odds of lightening striking in the same place twice are not high.
We read such horror stories and it's easy to get the idea that every one of these will fail. In reality when there is a weak spot such as this, it means that 15% or 20% of production are failing.
Odds are the system will be fine from now on. If it does leak, it will probably be something else. ANYTHING else that could leak would be a small problem compared to the evaporator.
Enjoy your a/c, be happy and sleep well.
Have a great day,
