Walmart Parking Lot Slip and Fall Case Goes to Trial

On Tuesday, March 19, 2024, a California state court in San Diego began trial over an alleged slip and fall caused by a pothole in a Walmart parking lot. The plaintiff claims the February 2020 incident required her to undergo spinal fusion surgery and left her with over $300,000 in medical bills.

A Walmart attorney told the court that the parking lot was shared with another tenant, who was responsible for maintaining the area where the plaintiff fell. The attorney also stated that the plaintiff’s deposition and security footage highlights that the plaintiff was using her phone at the time of the incident, and the elevation change is similar to what pedestrians expect in most parking lots.
