In addition to slip and fall accidents, a number of other accidents can also happen at banks like Wells Fargo. Other accidents that could occur on the premises include the following:
- Trip and fall accidents (such as a fall over a mat at the entrance, etc.)
- Assault and battery (bank attacks are typically associated with robbery attempts, which are facilitated by a lack of surveillance or on-site security, for instance)
- Falling object incidents (when décor, lights, etc. on ceilings or walls detach and fall, striking guests)
If you or a member of your family suffered a slip and fall accident or any other type of personal injury accident at a Wells Fargo bank, you should explore your legal options – you could be eligible to file a personal injury claim.
Can I Sue?
Do you have the right to sue for the harm suffered on the premises of a Wells Fargo Bank? You could sue. Specifically, you could sue based on the concept of premise liability. Based on premise liability, all property owners owe their guests a duty of care. That is, property owners have a duty to ensure their entire premises are safe for their guests. They must routinely inspect their premises to be able to identify and address any hazards present. If they fail to do so, they are breaching their duty of care as well as putting their guests at risk of suffering significant harm.
If a dangerous condition that the property owner was aware of or should’ve been aware of directly leads to an accident, the property owner could be liable for all the harm resulting from the accident. In other words, you could be eligible to file an injury claim for the harm that you or a member of your family suffered. If you are interested in learning more about your right to sue, do not hesitate to contact the experts at our law firm at your earliest convenience.

Filing the Claim Quickly
All injury claims are subject to a deadline – a statute of limitations. The statute of limitations that applies to your claim determines the total length of time that all claimants have to file their claims. If claimants do not file their claims on time, they could lose their right to sue for the harm resulting from the accident. How long do you have to file your Wells Fargo slip and fall claim? In the state of California, all claimants are subject to a two-year statute of limitations; this means that claimants will have only two years to file their claim. Although the statute of limitations is strict, certain exceptions could apply, which could ultimately toll or pause the deadline that applies. For more information of the total length of time that you have to file your injury claim, do not hestiate to contact us as soon as possible. Our lawyers will help you file your claim on time.
