If you have suffered a slip and fall accident at a Walmart, do not lose hope or be intimidated. Even though Walmart has thousands of locations nationwide, when you have an experienced legal advocate in your corner, you can demand total financial compensation.
Here is more about some of the most notable Walmart slip and fall settlement awards and the types of damages you could recover in your premises liability claim.
Examples of Walmart Slip and Fall Settlements
There is no average amount of Walmart slip and fall accidents in settlements. This is partly because every slip and fall accident injury can vary in severity on a case-by-case basis.
However, here are some examples of Walmart slip and fall settlements, so you can get a better idea of how much Walmart has been obligated to pay out for injuries over the years:

Damages Awarded in Walmart Slip and Fall Settlement Claims
After suffering injuries in a Walmart slip-and-fall accident, you have the right to full recovery of your losses. The types of damages you could win are known as compensatory damages.
This means the liable party must compensate you for these losses accordingly. Here are some of the top economic damages and non-economic damages Walmart slip and fall injury victims could recoup:
It is a top priority to seek compensation for your loss of income. Your life can be turned upside down with even one day of missed income. But the at-fault party should be required to compensate you beyond your lost wages.
You also have the right to restitution for your loss of employee benefits. These might include:
- Employee health insurance provided by your employer
- Retirement savings or 401(k) contributions from your employer
- Paid time off, including vacation pay, sick time, and overtime wages
- Loss of future potential income, increases to your salary, and bonuses, including holiday pay
Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering include various ways your life has been and will continue to be affected by your Walmart slip and fall injuries. Although pain and suffering damages are not monetary in nature, your attorney will quantify them on your behalf to maximize the compensation you win.
Examples of pain and suffering damages could include:
- Physical pain
- Mental anguish
- Chronic suffering
- Reduced quality of life
- Loss of consortium
- Personal and professional reputational damages
- Emotional distress
- Feelings of shock, shame, or indignity
- Feelings of fear, anticipation, or apprehension
- Embarrassing skin scars and disfigurement
With the cost of healthcare being what it is, Walmart and other liable parties should cover the cost of your medical treatment after a slip and fall accident. This should include more than just the cost of your ambulance and hospital stay. Examples of other types of medical expenses you should recover include:
- Prescription drugs
- Over-the-counter medications
- Diagnostic testing costs
- Medical treatment for your slip and fall injuries
- Invasive surgery
- Reconstructive surgery
- Ongoing mental health counseling
- Regular occupational and physical therapy
- Future medical expenses related to your Walmart slip and fall injuries
