Wal Mart - Real Bad Experience
Injury - Complaint
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA -- On December 19, 2012. I was making purchases at my local Wal Mart in Las Vegas. I spent over 1000.00 That evening. I was hit by a pallet jack in operated by an employee. I actually did get hurt badly, after trying not to go to the hospital I finally did. Turns out I have a disk problem from twisting away suddenly when the pallet jack latched on to the back of my ankle as I stood at the jewelry counter. My attempt was to have Wal Mart pay my co pays for treatment. I needed treatment because lifting my bed bound husband became very difficult and very painful. The Doctor stated I now need an orthopedic surgeon. Wow I can't believe that Wal Mart said that nothing happened and I made it all up. I was badgered in the store by the manager to fill my incident report even though I declined at first. All the employees attested to what they saw. I am sure that the jewelry counter does have video. I just can't believe the nerve on Wal Mart not to live up to protecting customers in their store when something happens. I reported them to OSHA for a violation of using equipment when customers are in the store, I reported them to BBB, and to the consumer complaint agency. I am awaiting their response. OSHA said they would investigate the matter. I am so injured that my husband had to be placed temporary in a nursing home and be without his wife because I cannot lift him because of what happened to by spine.
I feel that Wal Mart should at least do the right thing instead of just thinking about how much money they can get from consumers. They sure put a huge dent in the now quality of life. Shame on them. I miss my husband.
