The Denver Post has reported that a Cheyenne truck driver, Holly Averyt, was awarded $15 million from a Weld County jury for injuries suffered “while delivering frozen food to a Greeley Wal-Mart store.” Averyt’s attorney, Greg Gold, said that “Averyt has undergone four surgeries and is unable to work as a truck driver” due to her injuries. The jury found “that Wal-Mart had failed to use reasonable care to protect Averyt against a danger on its property” and awarded her millions of dollars for non-economic, economic and physical impairment losses. A spokesperson for Wal-Mart, Greg Rossiter, said that they might appeal the verdict.
A slip and fall victim should notify the authorities and seek medical attention immediately. Injuries to the back and spine often go unnoticed after a slip and fall accident and can lead to years of chronic back pain and disabilities. If the accident was caused by another person’s negligence, have a loved one take a picture of the accident scene, including any dangerous conditions that may have contributed to your accident. This information may be essential for filing a premises liability claim.
