Walmart Accident Lawyer | Fighting for Clients Across Alabama

As of 2023, there are nearly 150 Walmart stores in the state of Alabama, all of which gross millions in revenue each year. Unfortunately, one of the ways in which they retain their profit margins is by doing everything in their power to minimize or outright deny injury claims filed against them. If you’ve been hurt in a Walmart, the most important thing you can do is retain the services of a seasoned Birmingham slip and fall lawyer who has extensive experience handling these claims. Fortunately, you are in the right place.

What Injuries Are Most Commonly Sustained in Walmart?

Unsuspecting consumers regularly sustain various injuries in Walmart, often due to dangerous property conditions. Some of the most common injuries we see are as follows:

  • Slip and fall injuries
  • Back and neck strains
  • Fractured bones
  • Head and brain trauma
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Sprained or strained muscles
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Shoulder and arm injuries
  • Knee and ankle sprains
  • Wrist and hand injuries

Who is Claims Management, Inc.?

Claims Management, Inc. is the company Walmart uses to minimize or deny the claims of those who’ve been injured on their grounds. Notably, this is the very same entity with which those injured in Walmart have to file their claims.

In plain language, if you’re injured in a Walmart and are looking to be compensated for your injuries, the deck is stacked against you. This is why you need a skilled Alabama Walmart accident lawyer who is familiar with the tactics often employed by CMI and knows how to effectively combat them at every turn.

What Tactics Does CMI Use to Mitigate Walmart Lawsuits?

Claims Management Inc., uses a wide range of tactics to minimize, or even entirely deny claims made against Walmart. Just some of the tactics we’ve seen over the years include:

  • Pressuring individuals to provide recorded statements, even going so far as to falsely claim the law requires them to do so. Once the individual provides a statement, CMI will attempt to use anything the individual says against them.
  • Acting overly polite and friendly to disarm individuals so that they speak more casually and let their guard down, in the hopes that they’ll say something that could reduce their claim’s credibility.
  • Using confusing language or asking trick questions to get the claimant to “admit” something that isn’t true or to unknowingly downplay their injuries.
  • Initially stating that they will compensate the injured party, only to backtrack and deny compensation at the last second.
  • Purposefully delaying the process to run out the statute of limitations, or even to leave victims flustered in the hopes they’ll just give up.
  • Scrutinizing medical records or bills, or questioning their reasoning for receiving certain treatments in an effort to avoid a larger payout.
  • Sharing claimants’ sensitive, personal information with other entities and using that information against them.

All of these are common tactics Walmart uses against people looking to file personal injury claims against them, but with the right Walmart accident lawyer in your corner, you stand a far greater chance of getting the results you deserve and need.

How Can an Attorney Help?

No one should attempt to file an injury claim against a Walmart on their own. A skilled lawyer will prove to be an invaluable resource when it comes to dealing with this company in a variety of ways, including the following:

  • Satisfying the burden of proof: To win a personal injury claim of any kind, you will need to satisfy the burden of proof. Put simply, this means you and your attorney will have to gather and present evidence to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence–in this case, Walmart management or staff.
  • Calculating what your claim is truly worth: Only a knowledgeable personal injury attorney can effectively assess the circumstances and extent of your injury and accurately calculate an estimate of what your case is truly worth.
  • Negotiating with CMI on your behalf: Once our firm determines what your case is worth and what settlement you would be happy with, we will begin negotiations with CMI. We are experienced in doing so, are aware of the tactics they use, and have extensive knowledge of how to best combat those tactics. When you hire our firm to represent you, CMI will know that you mean business, and they will take your case seriously.
  • Preparing your case for trial, if necessary: Most personal injury cases do not proceed to trial, however, in the rare event that you are being offered insufficient compensation at the negotiation stage, we can prepare your case for trial and fight for maximum compensation on your behalf.
