Did You Slip and Fall at Walmart? Our Attorneys Can Help

Walmart is an American grocery store chain. It was founded in 1962 in Rogers, Arkansas. Headquartered in Bentonville, Arkansas, Walmart has stores in 50 states and Puerto Rico. It operates out of 11,000 stores and employs approximately 1.2 million employees in the United States. A large number of employees is evidence of the high volume of customers Walmart serves every day. With such large stores and frequent customer traffic, Walmart employees have a duty to regularly inspect the store to protect and warn customers of foreseeable harm. If Walmart breaches this duty and a shopper slips and falls in the store, it may be responsible for any and all injuries sustained.
