What happens when your routine trip to a local Walmart ends with a slip and fall injury? Are you unable to return to work due to your injuries? Do you have unpaid medical bills? If you answered “yes,” a Miami Walmart slip and fall accident & injury lawyer can fight for your right to compensation for your injuries.
Walmart has a responsibility to keep its stores free of slip and fall or trip hazards that pose potential harm to consumers. Failure to live up to that responsibility is a form of negligence. That means Walmart may be liable if you were injured while shopping at one of their stores. Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers has personal injury attorneys on staff who can help you seek to hold Walmart accountable for its negligence.
How Can Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers Help After a Walmart Slip and Fall Accident in Miami?
No one walks into Walmart thinking they will be injured in a slip and fall accident. Unfortunately, slip and fall accidents are far too common. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 800,000 people are hospitalized each year because of fall injuries.
The high cost of medical treatment can be a severe burden, especially if your injuries keep you out of work. Accident victims in this unfortunate situation have every reason to expect that Walmart (or its insurer) will step up and do the right thing.
Sadly, that doesn’t always happen. In fact, the insurance company may treat you like you’re begging for a handout when you ask to be compensated for your slip and fall accident-related injuries. The fact is you have a right to demand compensation after being hurt in a slip and fall accident that was not your fault. At times like these, having an attorney who is committed to your well-being can make a difference.
At Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers, our Florida firm is committed to fighting for accident victims like you. Our Miami slip and fall injury attorneys handle clients with a personal touch. If we take your case, we will do all we can to meet the legal standard for demanding damages on your behalf. That standard is as follows:
- Walmart was negligent in the circumstances that caused your slip and fall accident.
- You have injuries as a result of this negligence.
- These injuries have caused you physical and financial harm.
What Kinds of Negligence Lead to Slip and Fall Accidents at Walmart?
Many Miami-area Walmart slip and fall accidents are caused by negligence on the part of the store (or its employees). Some common examples of that negligence may include:
- Wet floors without appropriate warning signage
- Store displays or improperly stacked items that obstruct store aisles or walkways
- Failure to observe municipal safety codes
- Uneven walking surfaces (e.g., broken tiles or torn carpet)
- Inadequately marked steps or stairs

What Are the Potential Damages After a Slip and Fall Accident in Miami?
When most people imagine serious injury accidents, their minds immediately jump to car accidents. However, slip and fall accidents can (and often do) result in significant injury to accident victims. The cost of treating these injuries and the financial losses from missing work are examples of recoverable damages.
In addition to your immediate medical treatment, the cost of any continuing care, such as physical therapy or the purchase of a wheelchair would also fall under the umbrella of recoverable damages. Other accident-related costs, such as transportation to the hospital after the accident or back and forth from physical therapy, constitute recoverable damages as well. You may even be eligible for non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering.
Basically, any expense you incur as a result of your accident-related injuries is reimbursable and can be included in a demand for recoverable damages. A slip and fall accident attorney from our firm will always fight for a fair settlement or judgment on your behalf. The way we see it, you shouldn’t have you pay anything out of pocket because of Walmart’s negligence.

How Much Is My Slip and Fall Injury Case Worth?
The value of your slip and fall injury case depends on several factors.
