Can i sue walmart for workers comp or something if i get hurt doing the self checkout?
if their employee gets hurt checking out my foods and stuff then they get paid workers comp. If im doing the same stuff then there should be a monetary safty net in case i get hurt

How are you going to hurt yourself as a cashier, at checkout? It is virtually impossible. Don't think that they just hand over the money. There has to be a witness and they will investigate.Source(s): Certified Paralegal, with 25+ years' experience & with Employment law experience.

You don't work there, it is not worker's comp.
All depends on how you got hurt. If they were not negligent, then you get nothing for hurting yourself.

Not worker’s compensation because you’re not an employee.

Hurt yourself at the self checkout and try to sue Walmart.

I'm going to look directly at the scanning laser, blind myself, and then refuse to leave the store until someone gives me at least one million dollars.
A five gallon bucket of animal crackers would also be fair compensation.

If you get hurt while using a self-checkout, then I can only pray Walmart uploads it to YouTube so I can laugh at you.
