Walmart ordered to pay $10M to SC woman after she stepped on rusty nail in store.  We say…Good Lord!

From The State newspaper

A Florence County jury awarded a woman $10 million after she stepped on a rusty nail at a Walmart which led to her losing most of her right leg.

In 2015, April Jones stepped on the nail in the main aisle of a Beltline Drive store in Florence and suffered a severe foot injury, according to a news release from Jones’ lawyers. It led to an infection, which eventually led to three amputation surgeries. She sued the big box chain in 2017.

The first amputation was the second toe. Later, three more toes were amputated, leaving only her big toe. The last amputation was right above her knee.

Jones has been in a wheelchair for three years, forcing her to rely on her grown children for assistance, according to her lawyers.
