Being injured in a slip and fall accident can be extremely damaging medically and financially. According to the 9 News, a truck driver was awarded 10 million dollars after slipping and falling on grease outside a Northern Colorado Walmart during a delivery. The driver suffered severe spine injuries and underwent three surgeries after the incident. The 41 year old woman was unable to return to work after her injuries and lost her truck as a result. Walmart Stores Inc. claimed no grease had spilled out of their Greeley store. The court denied this claim and awarded the truck driver the maximum according to the state cap on non-economic damages.
