The plaintiff was a physician who essentially had to restructure his practice after the injury. He had been a customer at a Walmart store in Stafford County. There were allegedly no "warning" signs to be seen as the Walmart employee was off looking for them after mopping the floor.
The plaintiff claimed that his injuries were painful, permanent adn interefered with virtually all activities of his life.
The jury also awarded pre-judgment interest, which brought the total verdict to almost $14,000,000.
Walmart has announced that it will appeal the verdict. Post trial motions attacking the verdict have been denied.
This case was handled by attorney John Harris.
