Slip and fall injuries happen frequently at a Wal-Mart store somewhere around the state—an unfortunate, and all too common experience. For many victims, it may seem intimidating to go up against such a large corporation, knowing that they may very well retain tough defense teams to protect themselves from liability at all costs. You may be wondering if your case is strong enough to stand up in court. However, the fact of the matter is that Wal-Mart, as any other property owner, has the duty to provide a safe environment for customers to visit and shop, as well as maintain their premises.

How is Liability Determined?

The problem with companies such as Wal-Mart is that they will do everything in their power to reduce liability. They may try to cover up the evidence and use that to deny claims. That is why our Beaumont personal injury attorneys recommend taking the following steps after an accident:

  • Take pictures of the scene of the incident, as well as any injuries
  • Do not say anything that could allude to admitting fault
  • Write down the names of managers in charge
  • Gather witnesses, if possible
  • Do not speak with the other party’s insurance company
  • Obtain immediate medical attention for your injuries

One such case occurred in Houston in 2011. A Wal-Mart shopper was walking down the aisle of the freezer, where a puddle of water had collected. She then slipped and fell as she was walking back to her grocery cart. In her claim, she alleged that the water had collected from the condensation of the freezers, which had been recently stocked by employees.

The woman was asking for $500, 000 in compensation due to the injuries and damages that she suffered. Her pains could have been prevented had Wal-Mart taken due care to protect
