A jury in South Carolina awarded a woman 10 million dollars after she stepped on a nail that cause her horrific problems.
April Jones, filed the lawsuit in 2017. She sued Walmart after she stepped on a nail there in 2015.
According to the suit she "passed through an area where there were several pallets nearby when she suddenly felt a sharp pain in her foot. Ms. Jones inspected her foot and observed that a rusty nail has pierced through her shoe and was lodged into her foot. Ms. Jones visited the hospital and subsequently had to have a hole cut in her foot to treat the wound, which led to multiple surgical amputations, eventually resulting in her losing her right leg up to just above her knee.
That's right. She had to have her leg amputated!
Jones has been in a wheelchair for 6 years. She will be using the money to buy a prosthetic leg.
According to her law firm, “The weakness of Walmart’s case, among other things, was their failure to produce a video that they claim showed their conforming behavior to a company policy calling for employees to perform regular safety sweeps. No such evidence was presented for the duration of the five-day-long trial.”
