Walmart is the largest retail chain in the United States, bringing in several billion dollars in profits every year. People shop there to take advantage of low prices, but for too many Walmart customers, those savings come at a great price. Every year numerous Walmart shoppers suffer injuries that should have been prevented, injuries that result from Walmart’s negligence.
Unfortunately, Walmart retail stores are one of the most common places for slip and fall accidents, falling merchandise accidents, parking lot accidents, assaults, and other premises liability accidents. Walmart accidents can also be caused by unstable displays, broken pavement, icy outdoor walkways, and other ordinary hazards. When customers are seriously injured by any of these hazards, they may need a Walmart accident liability lawyer to help them recover fair compensation.
Like all businesses, Walmart supermarkets have a legal responsibility to clear away any potential hazards, such as spills. The law gives them a reasonable amount of time to clean up or post a sign if they can’t clear the hazard right away. But if the store fails to correct a clearly unsafe condition, it can be held legally liable for any injuries its negligence might cause.
It can be especially challenging to sue over Walmart accidents because this large corporation has the money and the liability insurance to cover even serious injuries, but they also have teams of attorneys whose job it is to fight legal claims. Even in cases where the store’s liability seems clear, this can stack the deck against injured people.
