$175k Mediated Settlement for Fall in Walmart - Adamson Ahdoot LLP

$175k Mediated Settlement for Fall in Walmart

Our client was a patron at Walmart located in Riverside, California. Our client proceeded through the checkout lane with their shopping cart, where they slipped on a clear, large, desert plate-sized puddle of water and multiple ice cubes on the floor and slipped forward into a painful split position on the ground, landing on her buttocks.

After the fall, Walmart employees did not rush immediately to render medical aid to our client. Instead, our client lay waiting in pain while Walmart employees located a corporate representative to come to take an incident report.

Our client sustained tough and recurring injuries as a result of this incident. As discussed below, Walmart failed to exercise ordinary care to keep the premises in a reasonably safe condition, actually and proximately causing our client’s resulting injuries. Walmart failed to properly sweep a high-traffic area near the cash registers, where customers are sure to pass through on their exit.

Our client saw a doctor at Sheridan Chiropractic, Inc. for chiropractic evaluation and treatment of injuries sustained due to a slip and fall incident. They complained of frequent, sharp, shooting, and burning pain in their left shoulder, lower back, and left leg/foot associated with soreness and numbness. They also reported a moderate headache. Our client rated their headache severity as 6/10, neck pain severity as 8/10, and upper back and lower back pain severity as 7/10.
