I’m a lawyer and sued Walmart and won – this is what you have to do if you get hurt in business

A LAWYER has revealed why he’s ‘happy’ to handle Walmart cases when a customer is injured at one of his stores.

John DeGasperis, a New York-based personal injury attorney, said he has taken dozens of cases against Walmart and won multiple times.

In his latest TikTok video, DeGasperis says he “enjoys handling cases against Walmart” because his customers “get paid.”

“I’ve actually sued Walmart a few times in my career,” the New York City personal injury attorney says in his video.

“I like working cases against Walmart, why? Because they handle their cases and I know my clients always get paid.”

DeGasperis said he’s managed cases ranging from slips and falls, trips and falls, falling objects, errand shopping carts to “Walmart employees running over customers with pallet jacks or submarines.”

However, he says there’s a reason he hates taking on claims for damages against Walmart — and it’s because of the supermarket’s one request to the plaintiff.

“I don’t like working cases with Walmart because Walmart won’t reach an agreement unless the injured person signs a non-disclosure agreement,” DeGasperis said.

“Basically, I don’t believe in confidentiality agreements. I think they allow companies to evade responsibility.”


Meanwhile, criminal defense attorney Carrie Jernigan has advised shoppers to stay away from self-checkouts, revealing they could be charged with accidental theft.

In her latest TikTok video, Jernigan revealed three groups of people are facing charges of shoplifting at major chain stores that offer self-checkout alternatives to their customers.

She says the first group of people to be charged with shoplifting are those who go into stores to steal.

The second group of shoppers accused of the same crime, they call those who “accidentally steal” commit.

“These are the people I really think just forgot to scan an item,” Jernigan said.

“Usually there’s something on the bottom shelf of the car or let’s say a DVD that slipped under your purse and when they go out, asset protection stops them.”

Jernigan says that when the checkout started, security would let all those innocent shoppers scan the item and pay, or just let them go and take back the item they didn’t pay for.

The lawyer says that because of the first group’s creative theft tactics, big stores have lost all “sympathy and are only taking a tell the judge” approach.

The third group of people they call the “truly innocent”.

Jernigan revealed that those customers aren’t charged the day they bought the item, but months later.

“Most of these are not billed on the day of the day. It’s something to say that asset protection does quality control or inventory weeks, days, months later and falls short,” she explains.

“So you’re going to start watching videos for hours and see the last person who checked out with the Mario Lego set because they’re too small, or an Xbox game, and for some reason they locate and think you have done it.”
