I was walking in action alley headed to the register with groceries in my hand and started sliding and couldn't stop.I tried to stop from falling however fell and landed on my right knee.I thought there was oil or something that caused me to fall, however,it was a grape.I noticed there were numerous grapes on the floor as I lay there in pain.A lot of customers witnessed my fall and it took about 5min for mgmt to come.I went to an urgent care clinic afterwards and was diagnosed with a knee contusion,informed to wear an immobilized for a week, which,I missed work and am still off from. I was referred to Ortho and will be seeing him in a few days.After that fall, I know have sharp pains in my thigh bone and knee, and my hip hurts.I contacted a lawyer, they said no, ref me another one.They referred me to another one. I have not met my health insurance deductible and want Wally World to pay for my past medical, future medical bills, pain and suffering regarding this injury. I'm not a sue happy person however am afraid that I will be stuck with the medical bills which my family of 7 can't afford. I've never sued anyone. The adjustor called and wanted to record my version of what happened, however, it was bad timing for me so I told him that I would call him back. I was in so much pain and was not thinking about getting witness statements and mgmt didn't ask for any. I filled out a report and the mgrs informed me to put their names down as witneses. Just scared that they won't pay. I did manage to locate one of the witnesses and got her info, apparently she slipped and nearly fell in the same area, on another grape. She informed the mgr as well.
