As of June 2022, there were 341 Walmarts in Florida. These stores aim to provide customers with anything they could need for their home or business. Unfortunately, sometimes they only provide risky environments that could result in a slip and fall accident.
Walmart is a major corporation that is supported by powerful law firms. The company could work to deny you the compensation you deserve if you slip and fall at a store. However, you could get help securing fair treatment by working with the Law Offices of Chalik & Chalik.
Our team of injury lawyers for slip and fall accidents at Walmart in Florida can work on your claim right away. Let us go over your legal options and start focusing on securing you full compensation for your medical expenses and other losses.
Slip and Fall Risks at Walmarts in Florida That Could Have Harmed You
Most Walmarts are incredibly large stores with multiple risk-factors that can result in slip and fall accidents. Customers in the store could slip and fall due to spills of:
- Water from rain or winter storms
- Liquids leaking out of carts
- Fruit falling off of shelves
- Condensation from refrigeration units
Additionally, the crowded aisles could cause a customer to slip on loose items in their path, like signs or fallen boxes.

Responsibility for Slip and Fall Accidents in Florida
Walmart has a responsibility to clean up and remove the hazards that we mentioned above. This responsibility is called their “duty of care.” In Florida, duty of care means that property owners must:
- Clean up potential hazards quickly
- Put up warnings for hazards they cannot immediately resolve
This means that a spill should not be allowed to remain for a lengthy period of time. If you were injured because Walmart failed to uphold its duty of care to you, you could be entitled to damages for all of your losses.

Completing Settlement Negotiations
We may settle your case with Walmart without having to go to court. A settlement may be in your best interests for several reasons, and it may be the most direct way of securing compensation for your losses. Negotiations may be tense, though, as we will not settle for anything less than you’re entitled to.
Defending Your Rights
When victims handle their own cases, there may be many opportunities for defendants like Walmart to violate their rights. Walmart may employ expensive legal counsel that may:
- Try to persuade or intimidate you into accepting a poor settlement offer
- Suggest that you are liable for your own fall
- Try to delay your case so that you will accept a quick settlement
- Play hardball during settlement negotiations
- Employ other bad-faith legal practices
Our team has experience with such tactics, and we protect clients like you from their effects. We don’t ever expect cases to be easy, but we have a great responsibility to each of our clients. Our goal will be clear, and that is to win the compensation you deserve.

You Have a Limited Time to File a Lawsuit for Slip and Fall Injuries
Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a) allows you to file a premises liability claim if you are injured in a slip and fall accident. You only have two years to file this claim, so it is important you move quickly. Four years may seem like a lot of time. However, you should act promptly to protect your case for compensation.
Waiting for a period of years before filing your premises liability claim can make it more difficult to gather the evidence to show that Walmart violated their duty of care towards you, so call us now.
