When life hands you melons…you sometimes just have to sue Walmart and make a fortune!
That’s what Henry Walker did!
Walker, who was 59 at the time, claimed that on June 25, 2015, his foot became trapped in a pallet beneath a stack of watermelons while reaching for one. This incident is said to have caused Walker a broken hip.
Walker brought his issue to court and a Jury rewarded him a whopping $7.5 million big ones!
Walmart has maintained that the display was not dangerous, and that any negligence was Walker’s fault.
“We are disappointed in the verdict,” a Walmart spokesman said. “We appreciate the jury’s service, however we believe that the damages awarded were excessive in light of the facts in this case. We plan to appeal.”
Walmart continues to uses the same displays for watermelon despite the incident because Walmart gives zero f**ks and $7.5 million is coffee money to them!
