Walmart is one of the largest retail companies in the United States and has influence on a global scale due to its size and wealth. For this reason, Walmart often acts as though the rules don’t apply to its actions and policies. Victims of accidents involving any of the 61,500 vehicles that Walmart owns are often intimidated by the behemoth’s legal resources and attempts to skirt responsibility even when it is clear that an accident is Walmart’s fault or the fault of one of its employees. Even though Walmart has an incredible amount of resources at its disposal, you may still be able to prevail with the help of a truck accident attorney who has access to the right resources and has successfully taken on large corporations.
How Walmart Mitigates its Financial Damage Following an Accident
Unlike most private parties or smaller companies, Walmart takes a brazen approach to any litigation that it faces by challenging whoever has a claim to bring the matter to court. Legal teams working for the global giant are paid millions of dollars each year to locate holes in cases that will allow the company to evade responsibility. In other cases, Walmart may use these resources to bully victims into accepting settlements that are not in their best interests and provide compensation that is far less than they are entitled to.
Whenever someone is involved in an accident and hires an attorney, that attorney will perform an investigation which is referred to as the discovery process. When Walmart is the defendant, its legal team is usually the first to the scene performing its own discovery process in order to determine whether there is any evidence that is especially damaging and its chances of having a potential lawsuit thrown out in court. This makes it more difficult to sue Walmart because they give the impression that they are constantly one step ahead throughout the legal process and will refuse to settle unless it is blatantly obvious that a court will rule in favor of the plaintiff.
Why You Can Still Sue Walmart Successfully
The Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have helped hundreds of clients collect substantial claims against large corporations in trucking accident cases because of our access to the same resources that Walmart implements to intimidate and bully the victims in trucking accidents involving its vehicles. In order to win your case, we need to establish that the accident was indeed the fault of either the truck driver, a defect in the vehicle or an equipment failure that was Walmart’s fault. The first step in proving fault is to deploy an accident reconstruction team to the scene of the accident which will collect all of the evidence required to make a case.
Truck accidents often result in severe injuries and determining the medical care that is absolutely necessary for recovery is often a point of contention. Walmart will argue that certain treatment options are not needed or that there are less expensive alternatives. In order to ensure that you receive the right forms of treatment and that you can receive the compensation needed to pay for treatment, we rely on the opinions and testimony of medical experts comprised of doctors, surgeons and specialists who can determine which treatments are needed and provide insight into the immediate and long term costs of that care.
Another invaluable resource at our disposal is a team of economists who can assess the financial impact of coping with your injuries. If your injuries have affected your ability to work, changed your quality of live or resulted in the need for assisted care over a long period of time, these factors are taken into consideration when establishing the value of your case. Their testimony may be used to refute any claims made by the opposition that the compensation being sought is not fair and they may also be able to project costs that would otherwise been overlooked when determining the value of your case.
