Walmart Slip and Fall Injuries Lawyer in Indiana
Did You Get Injured at Walmart? You May Have a Claim.
Walmart gets sued every day. Of all the lawsuits filed against the big corporation on a daily basis, a significant portion is slip and fall claims. However, only a small fraction of those claims are successful. Why?
To put it lightly, suing Walmart is unlike any other lawsuit. This company will do whatever it takes to see you lose your case. Expect the truth to get twisted and your words distorted, as Walmart could go to extremes to defeat you or discourage you. Walmart is so big that it created its own investigation company — not merely a department, but an entire company — called Claims Management, Inc. (CMI), which is designed to defeat your slip and fall case or lower your recovery.
The odds may seem stacked against you, but hiring an experienced and proven lawyer will maximize your chances of recovering compensation. While we can’t guarantee a favorable outcome in your case, we can guarantee that our team will go above and beyond to help get you back on your feet.

Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents in Walmart
A massive retail corporation, Walmart attracts countless customers every day. As such, it’s not surprising that employees must clean and maintain the store regularly to make it safe and welcoming for customers. Unfortunately, accidents and wrongdoings happen all the time; maybe an employee forgot to post a wet floor sign or failed to report a hazard to their boss. Other common reasons for slip and fall accidents in Walmart include:
- Chipped or loose tiles
- Worn-out carpeting
- Wet floors from ice, the Garden Center, spilled products, etc.
- Fallen or misplaced items on the floor
- Lack of safety signage (I.e., wet floor signs)
What to Know Before Filing a Slip & Fall Claim Against Walmart
Claims Management Inc. (CMI) can and will give you a hard time. This professional investigatory company does not mess around with slip and fall claims against Walmart, as it essentially operates as an insurance company for Walmart. As such, CMI acts in the best interests of Walmart only, NOT Walmart customers.
For instance, CMI may trick you into thinking that you “must” give a statement before hiring an attorney because “it is the law” to do so. It may assert that giving a statement right away may help settle your case or is the only way to get compensated for your medical bills. However, the law does NOT require claimants to give a statement before contacting a lawyer and, in reality, doing so before retaining a lawyer will NOT help settle your case or get your medical bills paid off quickly.
Not only that, but CMI may tell you that giving a statement is a prerequisite to a settlement in the hopes of finding contradictions between your statement and medical bills or other related slip and fall expenses. With this in mind, you should NEVER give a statement to CMI before hiring an attorney, even if you’re told that it will help your case.
I Slipped and Fell at Walmart. Now What?
After a slip and fall, you may feel embarrassed, disorientated, and, ultimately, hurt. But to help maximize your odds of recovering fair compensation for your injuries, you should follow the steps below no matter how overwhelmed you feel. You are up against a big corporation with a wealth of legal resources and money at its disposal, so every detail counts.
First, you should gather contact information from witnesses who were at the scene of your accident. Witnesses are crucial to your claim, so ensure to write down their name, contact number, and any statements they can provide about your accident, such as what caused it, where you fell, etc.
Second, document the scene. Take pictures and videos of the accident scene as well as of your injuries to provide evidence for your slip and fall claim.
Then, you should seek medical attention right away, even if you don’t feel your injuries or see any injuries developing. Far too many victims think they’re “completely fine” after slipping and falling only to discover internal injuries later. At that point, it could be too late to file a claim. This is why you should go to the doctor or hospital right away. Not to mention, your bills and treatments will provide further evidence of your accident.
Last but certainly not least, hire a trusted attorney who has a track record for recovering millions of dollars for clients. At McKibben Shaw Law, our Walmart slip and fall injuries attorney in Indiana can provide the fearless, powerhouse defense that you need.
