Assaults on Walmart’s Premises
Walmart, a chain of discount stores started by Sam Walton in 1962, is the nation’s largest retailer. The company uses competitive prices and marketing to squeeze out retailers across the country. Consumers shop at Walmart because of their prices, selection, and locations. Unfortunately, with the high traffic of customers at Walmart, there are thousands of people each year injured in Walmart stores and/or by-products sold at Walmart.
Were you assaulted in a parking lot or on the premises at a Walmart? You may have legal rights to compensation under premises liability law.
There are situations where a property owner may be held legally responsible for an attack or assault that occurs on his or her property. Business property owners and managers have a duty to safeguard the well-being of anyone visiting or doing business. Negligent security measures are typically the grounds for a premises liability claim involving an attack, where a lawful visitor to property incurred physical injuries because he or she was assaulted on the property. These cases are not necessarily clear-cut, however, as it will be necessary to prove how the property owner was negligent. You will need to prove that the owner of the property failed to act with reasonable care under the circumstances, and as a result, you were attacked on their property. When businesses, such as Walmart, fail to protect people from any type of assault, the experienced Walmart assault lawyers at the Law Office of Howard Alan Kitay, are prepared to help victims hold them accountable. We represent Walmart victims of assault, sexual assault and other acts of physical violence.
The potential complexity of a Walmart assault case makes it all the more important to involve an experienced Walmart premises liability attorney as soon as possible. You need a legal professional who understands the ins and outs of the law regarding property owner negligence in order to prove that your assault or attack should be grounds for a civil lawsuit. You will need proper legal counsel if you are to have the best opportunity of recovering full financial compensation for your injuries.
Our experienced Walmart assault lawyers understand that victims struggle with long-term challenges in dealing with an assault, particularly victims of sexual assault who may never have told anyone out of fear or guilt. Our firm helps its clients aggressively pursue justice and compensation for the physical, emotional, and financial consequences as a result of an assault or sexual assault on Walmart premises, including:
- Premises liability
- Rape or sexual abuse
- Armed assault
- Aggravated assaults
- Negligent security
- Inadequate lighting
Often assaults and attacks result in injuries such as soft tissue damage, broken bones, traumatic brain injury, damage to internal organs, and knife or gunshot wounds. The injuries can require expensive prolonged hospitalization and long-term rehabilitation. An injured victim may be unable to work and thus experience stress and financial hardship from a loss of income. A victim may sue for damages such as loss of wages, medical costs, pain and suffering, and loss of consortium. Before you settle an insurance claim for assault or attack injuries, you should consult with an attorney regarding your eligibility for additional avenues to recover damages in the form of monetary compensation.
