Have you suffered an injury while at a WalMart anywhere in Wisconsin such as Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay or Racine? There are currently 99 Walmart stores or facilities in Wisconsin. Per Wisconsin personal injury law you may be eligible for benefits and financial compensation for your injuries, pain, suffering, lost wages and medical bills. Also, injured Walmart employees may qualify for lost wage benefits, medical care and applicable disability benefits if they were hurt at a Wisconsin Walmart while working. These benefits are outlined by the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development. Speaking with a Wisconsin personal injury lawyer who has experiencing handling WalMart premises liability claims is a smart move.
Common ways to get hurt while shopping, or working, at a Walmart are slip and fall accidents, being hit by falling merchandise, parking lot car accidents, falling in the parking lot due to a pothole, being assaulted by another patron or employee. There are others but these seem to be the most common.
Injuries suffered can be head injuries, neck injuries such as whiplash, back injuries, crushing injuries, joint injuries, eye, nose and face injuries and broken bones.
Benefits and forms of compensation you may qualify for vary based on were you working or shopping while at Walmart when you were injured. The terminology, payout and claim filing process differs for each but some of the benefits are similar such as lost wage compensation and medical care.
The premise behind workers’ comp benefits is to enable you to pay your bills and get you back to work as soon as possible. These benefits are only allowed for the time you are out of work.
Personal injury benefits, which is what non-Walmart employees get when hurt at a Walmart, are designed to make you whole again and compensate you not only for your injuries but you pain, suffering and diminished quality of life caused by the injuries.
