I had just puched out and went to my locker to get my things, when an assistant manager and another associated were messing around shoving each other around when one shoved the other in to the lockers (18 in a section) when they all came over and hit me in the backof my neck,shoulder and back. They filed an accident report stating they were at fault because none of the lockers were secured to the floor.( the lockers were free standing in the hall). I have had an xray which led to an mri. I have 3 discs that are herniated and with 2 have a nerve root compromise, which gives me weird feelings down my neck and sometimes messes my head up. It has been 2 yrs. I am no longer working for them and havent since Jan.By there own rules I am still employed and on walmart property with them until I leave the parking lot. I was seen afterwards for medical problems, but didnt loose anytime from work because as they say it was a bad time of the year. I am now seeking physical therepy 2 to 3 times a week that will be starting. The specialist said that I will continue to have headaches that may get to be migraines and that I will probably loose strength in my left arm, when this begins they would like to start injections depending on the severity or just do the surgery. I have problems everyday from this. I never collected workmans comp from this. The symptoms have been graduall and I didnt really think anything would become of the blow. They took full responsibility for this injury and as far as I know to date the case is still open. No injuries before. Alot of witness and yes a claim was filed and it is still open.
