Bowling Green, KY asked in Personal Injury for Kentucky

Q: Walmart injury

Kid hit head on a misplaced display rack that was sticking out in toy section. We didn't go to doctor. Walmart was very rude and not helpful when it came to filing claim and trying to talk to management. Walmart offered 500 dollars. The negligence of the display is worth more than that to me. Should I hire a attorney?

A: Based on what you've described here I would for sure contact a lawyer that is familiar with personal injury/premises liability matters. Finding a lawyer that is familiar w/Walmart claims would be a plus!

A: This would be a premises liability case against walmart for having an unsafe condition on their property. If there was not any medical treatment it will be hard to prove any kind of substantial injury. Unless there was some kind of large cut or significant scarring, without any treatment it will likely be viewed as a nominal claim. Most attorneys will not take an injury claim where there is no corresponding medical treatment short of there being some kind of large and obviously related injury they did not require medical attention.
