You should retain an attorney immediately. These are serious injuries and, as you say, $7,500 will not even begin to cover the cost of present medical bills much less the cost of surgery and post surgical physical therapy. Our office handles these types of claims.

First, slip and fall cases can be difficult cases because most of the time they are fought tooth and nail by the store itself or its insurance company. The main hurdle in proving your case in the majority of these cases is proving the store is responsible for your fall. Basically, proving who owned, controlled, or maintained the property where the slip and fall occurred, and whether that party had notice of the condition that caused you to fall. (NOTE: There are more elements to prove but that is more or less what needs to be done.) This can only be determined by an experienced personal injury attorney who can take a look at the facts and particular circumstances of your case. Most initial consultations are free so I would talk to a personal injury attorney in your area to help you make your decision about the settlement offer made by Walmart, especially if you may be a surgical candidate as a result of this incident.

Absolutely consult a lawyer before top you continue. Walmart is very aggressive on settlements. If you want to maximization recovery, you should get a lawyer.Ask a similar question
I agree with the other posters. Its been my experience that a $7500 offer from Walmart, especially to a non represented claimant) could mean that they actually have some concern about your case. I generally have experienced what seems like an utter a lack of concern about claims. My (experienced) suspicion is that that Walmart reviewed its surveillance, and probably realizes that it has "exposure" for liability and damages. That being said, and even under those kinds of circumstances, Walmart will not just "fold" or pay you the full value of your claim. It can be complicated dealing with Walmart, even on "good" claims. Good luck, and sorry for all the " "sAsk a similar question
