Q: My wife was shopping at Walmart and was injured slightly win a 2 L of Coke fell off the shelf, hitting her on the head.
She filed a report with Walmart and was contacted my question is, is there any possibility of a case that has been several months and my wife still suffers from migraine headaches, and never actually went to the doctor because of the injury
There is a slim possibility of a case and, since your wife did not incur any medical expenses, her damages if successful will be quite small.
Walmart is a fairly sophisticated and complex organization. You will want an experienced personal injury attorney in order to make sure you sue the correct Walmart entity.
