The Walmart Slip and Fall Claims Process
Walmart is one of the largest corporations in the world, with thousands of stores across the United States, Europe, Asia, and South America. They have their own claims adjusting company called Claims Management Inc., which employs highly trained and skilled adjusters.
After an accident at Walmart, you will likely receive a phone call from Claims Management attempting to obtain information from you. They will likely try and get you to provide a recorded statement. They can use anything you say to try and deny and/or reduce the value of your claim.
Prior to providing a recorded statement, you should contact an experienced Fort Lauderdale slip and fall lawyer to understand your rights. Our attorneys will handle all communications with the insurance adjuster on your behalf and will guide you through the claims process.
Proving Negligence in Walmart Slip and Fall Cases
In order to win a slip and fall case against Walmart, evidence must be presented to prove that the staff failed to keep the store in a reasonably safe condition. It must also be shown that the staff knew or should have known that a dangerous condition existed in the parking lot or store, and they failed to fix the dangerous condition or provide appropriate notice to customers.
At Englander Peebles, one of the first steps we take when we are retained for a Walmart slip and fall case is to demand that the store preserve any video of the incident. The surveillance systems at most businesses will automatically delete the video after a set number of days. Obtaining a copy of the video of the incident can be invaluable in proving that dangerous condition existed and was not appropriately addressed by Walmart staff.
