There are various ways that a company’s negligence can contribute to your personal injuries. Whether you slipped and fell because there was water on the ground, or one of their doormats tripped you on the way out, you may be able entitled to compensation. If you sustained personal injuries in a Walmart, you should be ready for a tough negotiation.

Walmart is one of the largest retailers in the United States, with more than $500 billion in revenue in the last fiscal year. Because of this, it can be difficult to sue Walmart because they have the resources to defend most claims. However, with a proper claim and the right strategy you may still be able to recover from this corporation.

No two cases are alike and the facts and circumstances surrounding the accident will likely play a large role in the success of your claim. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may be able to negotiate with Walmart and recover the damages you deserve.

Deny & Defend 

Once a claim is filed against Walmart, they are likely to deny it outright or offer a small amount of money as a settlement. Do not feel as though you have to take their first offer, as it may not fully compensate you for your injuries. Rejecting the first offer with additional proof of your injuries is a good way to show Walmart that you are serious about this claim.

Walmart will likely try to diminish your claim at every chance they get. They will do this by placing the blame on you for the injuries you sustained. This is where proper documentation comes into play.

Documentation Is Key 

In any personal injury case, it is important to keep any and all documents that relate to your claim. This is especially true if you are negotiating an injury claim with Walmart, because this large retailer will want proof that they contributed to your injuries.

Here are some examples of documents that could help your negotiation:

  • Medical Bills
  • Pictures or videos from the day of the accident
  • Witness statements

You Don’t Have to Take on Walmart Alone

If you are thinking about filing an injury claim against Walmart, it may be a good idea to hire a personal injury attorney. Walmart is a very tough negotiator and they will fight aggressively against any and all claims that are filed against them. A personal injury attorney can help you determine if you have a case, and build evidence to help bolster your claim.

If you decide to negotiate an injury claim with Walmart on your own, stand your ground and do your research. Persistence and patience will be in your best interest as you take on this large corporation.
