A LAWYER claims he sued Walmart and won after his client only stepped into an aisle once.
Accidents are bound to happen anywhere, but this injury lawyer noticed a flaw in how the retailer managed their store, which is how he was able to win the case.
Alan Kaplan is an injury lawyer and owner of Kap Law LLC.
He has a TikTok account where he shares legal issues pertaining to personal injury.
In one of his videos, Kaplan told the story of how he sued Walmart and won.
“My client was walking down the aisle when a condition fell on her foot causing her injuries,” he explained.
He used the term “condition” to describe a specific defect in the store.
No injury inflicted on his client was specified by the lawyer.
“I won because Walmart failed to fix or warn my client of this defective condition,” he said.
Kaplan further elaborated: “And there was no reason to put any blame on my client who had just gone down the aisle for the first time.”
Some commenters were supportive of the lawyer’s success.
One viewer wrote: “Another day another win.”
“Major bag alert,” another wrote, believing that a lot of money was won in the case.
However, others were critical of the case, mocking the severity of the accident.
One person wrote: “Ridiculous to sue a company for this. Would never happen outside the US.”
“People need to grow up and stop suing everyone,” another said.
To which Kaplan respondent: “Corporations need to grow up and stop putting profit over people.”
Another Walmart customer sued the retailer for $2.1million after the cops charged her with theft over a self-checkout error.
