can i sue my bank for negligence?
Find answers to your legal question.





can i sue my bank for negligence?

So my sister and her boyfriend who looks nothing like me stole my I.D from my room and went on to steal 800 dollars from me in 3 days. They went up to the teller everytime too. I told the bank people and the cops who did it and all the information in the world. Its been 2 weeks now and they have not told me anything of news and won't answer my calls.

You can but 1.) you would lose and 2.) it would cost you a lot more then you are suing for. The problem is that you know who stole the money from you so the legal system will not allow you to double dip. What I mean by this is that you are only entitled to the amount you lost which is $800. The problem is, you know who stole it from you so you will have to recover the funds from that person by pressing charges against those people.

Yeah you can, I'd move all my money to another bank that is more trustworthy though. MCplAdams

First thing you do is, GET RID OF YOUR SISTER AND HER BOYFRIEND! SHE IS JUST AS GUILTY AS HE IS!! I would file charges on BOTH of them for identity theft!! I would demand to see what signatures the Bank has on the transactions. YOURS should be on file with them! Where are they now? Did the Police arrest them? and if not, WHY NOT!? I am sure the Bank is covered for situations like this, but I would go in person to the Bank and draw out what money you have left in there! I do agree with you, the bank WAS negligent in this case. Saying SORRY to you, doesn't cut it with me! I would tell the Bank you are consulting an attorney about this, and see what kind of a reaction you get from them! Also, if you have credit cards, I would contact them and have your account numbers changed. Did you ever get your ID back??

Yes you can. Especially if they did not check your ID and signature properly. It's not always worth it though. The bank may may oppose your action. Then it will costs you thousands of dollars in legal fees which you may not get back just to get 800. Better to sue your sister and her boyfriend after the criminal trial. A successful criminal trial will help you win your case in the civil trial. If you get a civil judgment against your sister and boyfriend then you have the rest of your life to extract the 800 from them.
