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

Yes. You can sue them for the forgery. You will have to prove who exactly did the forgery which may prove to be difficult.
Your damages are $37.82. So I would not expect an attorney to take the case on a contingency fee. You will have to do the cost-benefit analysis yourself.
