Steps To Take After A Wal Mart Store Accident
- Report the accident to the store manager or to the customer service desk. The staff should ask the victim to fill out an accident report form. If no form is furnished, the victim should make sure that the incident is recorded in the store’s accident book. This will be used as proof that the accident really occurred.
- If there are witnesses to the accident, ask for their names and contact information.
- If possible, take a picture of the cause of the accident. A floor spillage, unattended pallet on the aisle or a fallen sign from the ceiling can be best documented by taking pictures of it. Having these pictures will increase the probability of winning your claim.
