Slip-and-Fall Accidents at Banks May Lead to Injuries

A man in another state recently claimed that he slipped and fell at a Wells Fargo Bank property due to the bank’s carelessness. As a result, he decided to file a premises’ liability claim against the financial institution. Likewise, any individuals in West Virginia who suffer injuries in slip-and-fall accidents stemming from other parties’ carelessness have the right to seek justice through the justice system.

In the recent out-of-state case, the man claimed that he went into the banking institution and struck up a conversation with a manager/associate. During this time, he reportedly slipped and fell backward, purportedly due to a water puddle on the floor. According to the man’s claim, his head bounced on the concrete floor.

The man asserted that the slip-and-fall accident caused him to fall unconscious for about 10 minutes. He claimed in his lawsuit that the bank could have blocked off or covered the water puddle on the floor that caused him to fall. In his lawsuit, he is seeking an unspecified amount of monetary damages.

Sometimes, businesses fail to properly keep up their properties, and as a result, their customers end up suffering injuries in slip-and-fall accidents. Fortunately, those who are injured in these types of accidents due to companies’ negligence have the right to seek compensation in civil court in West Virginia. A successfully fought claim may result in a judiciary award of financial damages that might help the plaintiff to cover his or her medical costs, the loss of wages and other accident-related losses.
