Slip and falls can result in serious injuries. In fact, many people are surprised at just how debilitating and life-changing a slip and fall accident can be. One woman who understands this issue all too well is Teresa A. Witt, a Muncie, Indiana resident who slipped and fell in her local Walmart.
On September 3, 2014, Teresa Witt was shopping at the Muncie Walmart located at 4810 W. Clara Lane. When she encountered a puddle of liquid on the floor, Witt slipped and fell, experiencing significant injuries. The lawsuit, filed in September 2016, states that Witt is seeking unspecified damages for mental anguish, physical pain, and the loss of enjoyment of life. While the injuries Witt suffered are unknown, they may come forward as the suit progresses through the Indiana court system.
Going Up Against Large Legal Teams
Cases like Witt’s, where an accident occurred at a large chain store, can be particularly challenging. Stores like Walmart, CVS, Home Depot, and other national shopping centers have dedicated legal teams that know how to minimize cases. Oftentimes, these legal teams will offer a paltry settlement in an effort to make the case disappear. They may use intimidation tactics or suggest that the case is unwinnable to persuade the victim to stop a potential lawsuit. However, individuals injured in chain stores can still get compensated for their injuries by working with a seasoned and dedicated slip and fall lawyer who has specific experience in working on similar cases.
