Walmart Lawsuit Settlements
Walmart v. Merril Hoge is yet another Walmart vs. The plaintiff’s case that have been in the courts for a number of years and it has not been easy on the plaintiffs. The case was originally filed in Arkansas state court and then moved up to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. At one time during the case a judge ordered the store to pay damages to a customer who suffered from breast cancer that resulted from using an inflatable hot tub, but that decision was overturned by the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals. This is perhaps one of the more embarrassing aspects of the case because although Walmart had no legal responsibility to pay damages to the customer or even that much liability, the store was facing a huge fine from the government over the matter of safety training.
In one of these situations there are usually cases of law firms, accounting firms, etc., that file the lawsuits and then later they turn around and hire an outside firm to file the lawsuit on their behalf.
One of the problems with this is that it allows them to increase their liability and therefore their case is stronger. It is very difficult to successfully sue large corporations like Walmart because their size and financial power to buy them protection. It used to be that large lawsuits could only be brought by victims who were in the minority, but that is not the case anymore and Walmart may have to pay a significant amount of money if it is proven they violated any of their safety guidelines. There have also been multiple cases where there were injuries that have resulted in a case being thrown out due to the fact that they were trying to represent themselves and not the victims.
