A Montgomery woman represented by our firm settled a most significant case against Wal-Mart in a Montgomery County Circuit Court last month. The case involved a slip and fall incident that happened at one of the Wal-Mart’s Montgomery stores. Our client, a customer, fell after slipping in an oily substance on the floor in the Garden Center section of the store. She was seriously injured and has had two major surgeries, the last involving a total knee replacement. We have learned in litigation that Wal-Mart has a history of slip and fall incidents in its stores.
We learned in this case that Wal-Mart’s safety policies leave a great deal to be desired. Many of the stores are under-staffed and have employees who have been inadequately trained. As usual, Wal-Mart played hard-ball on all discovery efforts in this case. After a number of tough discovery battles, and some great discovery orders entered by Judge Greg Griffin, we received a great deal of valuable information that helped settle the case. There is a protective order in place, however, so we can’t say any more about this. Julie Beasley handled this case and did a very good job for her client.
