In Oct. 2003, I fell on the Wal-Mart premise near my home, in McKinney, TX. That accident led to 2 back surgeries, hip and knee surgery and left me permanently partially disabled.
I sued them and for their defense, they portrayed their manager as the Citizen of the Year. The man lied on the stand and contradicted his deposition. Their attorney, in his closing arguments, used the emotion card by saying "She is very sympathetic and I know she had a hard time since she moved from Canada, but we are not a bank." He also said "She invented it all and made herself believe it really happened." They even claimed that I was just wasting time at Wal-Mart and that I was trespassing!! Everybody should know that according to their definition, Wal-Mart is the place to shop but if you are on the premise, you are trespassing!!
Their 2 witnesses went on about the Wal-Mart "culture". I have metal plates in my back and I can't feel my left leg anymore. I believe that the Wal-Mart culture is all about lying to cover up for their negligence and not take responsibility for anything.
If anything happens to you at a Wal-Mart, get yourself a good attorney (a better one than mine!) and don't forget to bring your video camera, in case you would trip and fall so you can document what happened even BEFORE you fell!
