While shopping at your local Walmart, you slipped in an aisle and suffered an injury. Can you sue the store to recover compensation for your injury?
Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. has a widespread retail presence across the U.S. In the Raleigh area alone, there are numerous Walmart stores and Supercenters. Our law firm is even located near several Walmarts:
Slips and falls in stores are common. A broken jar, a leaking container, or even a newly mopped floor can create conditions hazardous to passersby. Injuries from slip and fall accidents can be painful — and serious. Sprains, broken bones, and even head injuries can result from losing your footing in a trip or slip. And shoppers of all ages are at risk.
When you are invited onto the property of a store like Walmart, you have an expectation of a safe shopping experience. If you are injured during your time in the store due to poor conditions, failure to attend to messes or hazards, or another type of negligence, you may have a claim under premises liability law to sue the store owner or operator for your personal injury.
When deciding whether to file a lawsuit for your slip and fall injury, always consult first with an attorney, making sure to consider the following details about North Carolina law:
