California Jury Awards $2.45M in Walmart Slip and Fall Case

On Wednesday, March 27, 2024, a California state court jury awarded roughly $2.45 million to a woman, Kathy Morrow, who sued Walmart after tripping on a pothole in its parking lot. A Walmart spokesperson told media outlets the company is disappointed in the jury’s verdict.

Morrow claimed she couldn’t see the pothole due to shade from a nearby parked car and argued that Walmart’s own store policies required them to take more proactive steps to look out for and repair tripping hazards. Walmart tried to argue that Morrow was distracted by her phone, causing her fall.
