This week, a $10 million slip and fall verdict against Walmart was upheld by the Colorado State Supreme Court. The verdict is considered to be one of the largest verdicts in a slip and fall lawsuit in the history of the U.S.
The case involved a 41-year old woman who slipped on a pile of grease in the parking lot at a Walmart store in December 2007. The woman worked as truck driver and slipped while making a delivery at the store.
After the accident, the victim was no longer able to work as a truck driver because of her injuries; she had 3 spinals surgeries and incurred $500,000 worth of medical bills.
The verdict was awarded last year, but Walmart appealed the ruling. The Supreme Court dismissed the appeal and upheld the $10 million award.
