There are few unknowns which will make or brake this case. First and formost is the duration of the water on the floor. For example if someone had spilt the water a minute or two before then there was neither sufficient notice nor time to remedy the situation. However, if the water was on the floor for a long time and Walmart didn't have proper procedure or protocol for inspection, then you will likely prevail on liability.

Second, you have to find out (through discovery) what type of safety procedures were in place during the time of your accident. If they didn't have proper inspection policy then the burden will shift to Walmart to prove their store was safe for their consumers.

Good luck and speedy recovery.
