Q
Why would Wal-Mart go to trial instead of settling with me for my slip and fall claim?

A

Wal-Mart stores, like other big box stores, often try slip and fall cases instead of settling them in order to discourage people from filing fraudulent claims. This is why they vigorously defend these types of cases in court so that others do not attempt to make a financial recovery on a frivolous claim. Unfortunately for people like you, who really did fall and suffer injuries, it may be difficult to collect compensation for your injuries from Wal-Mart. For this reason, it is critical that you speak with a skilled Atlanta slip and fall accident attorney immediately to discuss your potential case.

Wal-Mart knows that slip and fall cases in Georgia can be difficult to prove. They will fight you by stating that you should have been looking where you were going. You, in turn, will have to show that they knew or should have reasonably known about the hazardous condition and failed to take proper actions to create a safe environment. Showing that their negligence caused your fall injuries will be grounds to win your lawsuit.

Don’t let the fact that Wal-Mart is fighting you sway you from filing a slip and fall lawsuit. Although suing Wal-Mart will take time and money, you also could obtain a larger recovery than if you settled. Remember that it is not personal; going to trial is their legal strategy. In order to obtain justice and a just recovery for your fall injuries, you need to obtain excellent legal counsel and vigorously fight back.
