Trip And Fall Inside A Bank Vault

Banks utilize bank vaults to hold cash reserves in their banks. Banks decide how much money they want to keep in reserves as far as currency that they choose to keep on hand. But the banks also have to use a formula to determine how much cash they need to hold in reserves, to ensure that this amount never exceeds the customer demand for cash from their banking institution. Bank vaults also house safety deposit boxes, which are open for rent to the banking customers to hold their precious items. A bank safety deposit box can hold:

  • Personal papers
  • Wills, trusts deeds
  • Legal papers
  • Rare coins and collectibles
  • Jewelry
  • Important contracts and business papers

People who rent a safety deposit box at a bank have the names of the people who are allowed to have access to the box on the lease. That way no unauthorized people will have access to the safety deposit box. If you are injured in a bank vault when you go to get access to your personal property at the bank, it may be a surprise to you regarding all of the hazards nearby to where you need to go at the bank. The bank is responsible to be there and keep the vault area clear of debris, paper, tools or equipment, that can cause you to trip and fall. If the bank is negligent and allows you to trip, fall and become injured inside the bank vault, then the bank may be responsible for your losses, damages, personal injuries and expenses related to your claim./

Why Do People Fall Inside of a Bank Vault?

Depending on the location of the bank vault and its size, some bank vaults are quite large and there can be temporary flooring to allow people access inside the bank vault. A large bank vault can have uneven flooring because to allow access to the inside of the vault, there may be a walkway put down to prevent people tripping over the lip of the door to the bank vault. In other cases, if no temporary flooring is put down, that lip on the door of the vault can be a tripping and falling hazard to anyone going inside of the bank vault. There also may be darkly lit stairwells going down into the area of where the bank vault is housed. Because it is an unfamiliar area, many people can trip going up or down the stairways to go to the bank vault as well.

Why Are Bank Vaults a Hazard When You Go into Them?

A standard bank vault can be a hazard when you walk into it at any time of the day. The bank vaults are usually housed in darkened basement areas of a bank, and the lighting down there is most often less than ideal. The bank vault doors are extremely heavy and swing out when they are open. If you walk too close to it, there can be outward sticking knobs and handles, that can cause you to trip and fall if you walk into it without closely looking where you are going. The flooring where the bank vault door opens out onto may be scraped regularly by the heavy door, and there can be divets where the ground is dug up and uneven. The doorways can be narrow, and if a steel plate is put down on the floor to shore up the flooring, it can make for another hazard for tripping you as you walk, when you walk down into these areas.
