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. The attorneys of Altman & Altman have represented adults and children in the Greater Boston Area and all throughout Massachusetts who have been robbed, sexually attacked, beaten, and more as a result of negligent security at ATMs, and we can represent you too if you seek financial compensation for your injuries.Negligent Bank Security
Like ATM kiosks, banks are attractive to criminals and can be very dangerous places. Bank robberies are not as uncommon as you may think, 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 for failing to employ more functional and robust security measures.
Depending on the circumstances, negligent security could potentially involve:
- Failure to provide security guards
- Failure to provide working security cameras
- Failure to provide adequate lighting within ATM kiosk or outside of it
- Improper placement of shrubbery at an ATM that could provide an easy hiding place for a robber or obstruct others’ view of the ATM
- Failing to put in place measures like locking doors
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 trained in premises liability, which is a key area of our practice and has been for over 50 years. We understand the crucial importance that property owners, like banks, take their legal obligation to provide safe premises for customers as seriously as possible, and we hold them accountable when they do not.

It will also be important to discuss what your goals for filing a claim are, such as how much you are trying to collect, who you believe is at fault, etc. Our personal injury attorneys are well-versed in the applicable laws regarding negligent security, so we can craft a legal strategy with your goals in mind to create the best opportunity for satisfaction and success for our clients.
