Negligent ATM Security
Many of us have grown to rely on the convenience of ATMs. They allow us to withdraw cash almost anywhere and at any time without the hassle of waiting in long bank lines. Unfortunately, ATMs tend to invite crime, and negligent security can make ATMs even more attractive to criminals. Negligent security can lead to a variety of different injuries. The attorneys of Altman & Altman have represented adults and children who have been robbed, sexually attacked, beaten, and more as a result of negligent security. Usually negligent ATM security cases involve robbery.
Negligent Bank Security
Like ATM kiosks, banks are attractive to criminals and can be very dangerous places. Bank robberies are not uncommon, and they tend to involve assaults, beatings, and sometimes even killings. When a person is injured in a bank because the bank failed to provide adequate security, the bank may be liable.
What are examples of things that might constitute negligent security at an ATM or bank?
Depending on the circumstances, negligent security can involve:
- Failure to provide security guards
- Failure to provide security cameras
- Failure to provide adequate lighting
- Improper placement of shrubbery at an ATM that could provide an easy hiding place for a robber or obstruct others’ view of the ATM
What to do if you have become a victim:
Getting medical treatment for your injuries will be your number one concern. Next, if you suspect that your injury was the result of negligent security, you should speak with a lawyer. It is important to do this quickly so that the lawyer can start strategizing and so that evidence will be preserved.
