Wal-Mart Denies Liability in Slip and Fall Case

Meyerkord, Meyerkord & Kurth, LLC: A Legacy of Legal Innovation

Wal-Mart denies that it is responsible for the injuries sustained by one of its customers as alleged in a Madison County lawsuit. Back in April of this year, a male filed a lawsuit against the retail giant claiming that he slipped and fell on a wet foreign substance. As a result of the fall, the male plaintiff claims he suffered a back injury that later required surgery. According to the complaint, the male plaintiff alleges he sustained back, neck, lower back, hip and right elbow injuries and suffered great physical pain and mental anguish. Additionally, the male plaintiff claims that he incurred medical costs, lost wages, endured disability, lost his normal life and suffered disfigurement. The lawsuit, filed in Madison County Circuit Court prays for a judgment of less than $300,000. Wal-Mart, however, alleges that the male plaintiff is responsible for his own injuries for failing to keep a proper lookout and care for his own safety. Attorneys for the retail giant filed a motion to compel product of interrogatories served on the plaintiff stating that the two parties have been unable to resolve discovery differences. As a result, the presiding judge has set a case management conference for August 20 to December 17.
