Retail stores can be more dangerous than you might think, with spills and debris that can lead to accidental slips and falls. If you or someone you love was injured slipping and falling at Walmart, our slip and fall lawyer could help you seek financial recovery of any required medical care. You can also request compensation for your loss of income, pain and suffering, and other expenses.
When you retain our law firm, we explain the details and components of your case, including how to file a slip and fall claim against Walmart and whether to file against the store where you were injured or the corporate entity. We also prepare your evidence file and negotiate a settlement on your behalf.
What Will You Do to Prove I Was Injured When I Slipped and Fell at Walmart?
When we help you pursue compensation from Walmart, we start by proving the negligence that led to your slip and fall injuries. By collecting evidence, interviewing witnesses, and reviewing surveillance videos, we help you prove the retailer:
- Owed you a duty of care
- Failed to provide it
- Caused your injuries
- Is responsible for your damages
According to Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) statistics, common injuries reported in falls include broken bones, head injuries, and hip injuries. These injuries can lead to long-term medical care and expenses. Our slip and fall injury attorney can help you recover from the cause and the costs of your fall.
Calculate the Value of Your Slip and Fall Case
The costs of treating your injuries can vary greatly. So can the financial expenses and losses that relate to your injuries. The damages you can recover from the at-fault party include:
- Medical expenses
- Wage and income loss
- Pain and suffering
- Public humiliation
- Mental anguish
- Emotional trauma
Depending on the severity of your fall-related injuries, you could be entitled to additional damages, including physical therapy and rehabilitation costs. When we assign a value to your injuries, we make sure all valid expenses are accounted for.
There Are Deadlines to Pursue Compensation in Slip and Fall Cases
According to CC Art. 3492, when you are injured in a slip and fall accident, you generally have one year from the date of your injury to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party. When you seek compensation from Walmart, failing to file your lawsuit on time could mean:
- Your lawsuit cannot be filed at all
- Your lawsuit will be dismissed without being heard
Either of these outcomes means you will have no further legal options to compel compensation. We can ensure you meet the filing deadline when you get our legal team on your side sooner rather than later. Doing so protects your right to go to court if necessary.
