Walmart is the largest retailer in the United States and also the biggest private employer. The company’s business model is based on selling a wide variety of general merchandise at “always low prices.” They refer to their employees as “associates.”
Walmart employees are subject to many dangers as part of their work duties. Many common injuries involve falling boxes and falling objects on shelves and up above employees. Employees are also subject to potential injury from slip and fall accidents and from lifting heavy objects such as cartons, boxes and crates. Injuries may also occur from counters, cabinets and pallets and use of box cutters by employees.
There are also concerns with poor ergonomics that Walmart employees face and repetitive motion injuries from continued use of arms, hands and back. Injuries may also occur from lifting heavy furniture and operation of machinery.
When you are hurt or injured while performing your duties as a Walmart employee, there is a specialized area of legislation that governs from whom and how much you can recover. Depending on the state where the injury took place, employers are required to provide workers’ compensation insurance coverage for each employee. However, obtaining these insurance benefits after suffering serious injuries while working can be difficult.
The workers’ compensation system is designed to create ready access to benefits for injured workers. Many injured employees believe that if they simply submit their claim they will receive fair benefits. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Claims are unfairly denied and injured workers are offered less than the full benefits they deserve for their injuries.
