Bank worker secures compensation after raid

A bank worker has successfully pursued a claim for compensation with the help of our specialist personal injury solicitors after he was left traumatised following a raid on his branch.

Our client was in the bank with two colleagues shortly before opening time, when armed masked men smashed through a roof and dropped down into the branch. The men then held him and his colleague's hostage before leaving the premises with stolen cash.


As a result of the incident, our client developed post-traumatic stress disorder which kept him off work for six weeks.

Following the raid, our client contacted our specialist personal injury solicitors who investigated a claim for compensation.

Bank was vulnerable

Our solicitors found that an almost identical raid - in which the offenders broke into the branch through one of the two flat roofs of the premises - had taken place just nine months before. However, following the earlier raid, the bank had only reinforced one of the flat roofs, leaving the other vulnerable to another attack.

The bank admitted liability for failing to take sufficient measures to ensure the safety and security of our client, and compensation was secured..
