Are you claiming compensation in West Bromwich from a bank?
As most banks and building societies have large amounts of cash on the premises, they can be subject to attempted thefts and raids. In order to try and keep these institutions as safe as possible, most banking companies have advanced security systems in place. If, for example, a member of the bank staff is threatened, they may be able to press a silent alarm to alert the police or they may be able to activate in-branch security systems.
Although these security systems can be effective at preventing a possible robbery, they can sometimes prove to be dangerous. Security screens, for example, will often automatically descend on to bank counters or doors may automatically be locked. If customers are in the branch when this happens they could be hit by a screen or door and they could suffer a serious injury.
If you’ve been hurt in this way, it may be possible for you to claim compensation in West Bromwich from the bank. If the security measures were activated intentionally and you were hurt, it’s possible that the bank or building society will be liable for your injuries and you may be able to obtain compensation in West Bromwich from them.
However, if the security measures weren’t working properly or they weren’t officially activated, it may mean that there is something wrong with them. If they have malfunctioned and you’ve been hurt, you may need to pursue the security company themselves for compensation in West Bromwich.
