  • Should I settle or go for a jury trial? A little over two years ago, I tripped and fell entering a Walmart store.

    Robert’s Answer

    This is a question that only your attorney can answer. You need to know whether the lawyer is one who is experienced in these types of cases, whether your case is well prepared and whether you have confidence in the lawyer and the case preparation. What the lawyer told you is correct that if you try it, you may lose it; but that begs the question: at what number does trying it and risking a loss make sense! Those cases are more difficult than people think; a store is not liable simply because a handicapped person falls due to a rug fold and is injured. What and who caused the rug to be in that condition is a question for trial and therein is a heart of the case. And what amount is full, fair compensation of fractured ribs? That too is jury question! And to what degree were you also at fault or careless in causing your own injuries? Another question for trial! Walmart is looking at those issues and saying that your damages will be reduced perhaps by 40% so the 11k represents more but reduced for comparative. Go have a long talk with your lawyer, show the lawyer the AVVO qs and As and get an opinion form the professional you hired.

    There is no "by law" responsibility on the owner in my view. If he has a motor vehicle of his own he is likely covered for this accident getting out of and thereby using a motor vehicle.
