In May 2008, Craig Walters was shopping at Korger, a large grocery store chain. While ordering from the deli, Mr. Walters slipped on some fruit that was on the floor. As a result, Mr. Walters sustained a serious spinal cord injury, which required surgery and multiple rods to be placed into his spine. Not only were these surgeries expensive, but Mr. Walters was unable to work for a long period of time after the fall.
Mr. Walters subsequently filed a lawsuit in Gwinett County, Georgia, claiming damages for lost wages and for medical expenses. Although initial video evidence did not show that the fall had occurred, lawyers for Mr. Walters eventually discovered that the store had intentionally gotten rid of crucial video tape after the fall. In part due to this apparent effort to deceive the Court, a Gwinett County jury awarded Mr. Walters $2.3 million in damages. Walters was represented by Attorney Lloyd N. Bell of the Bell Law Firm.
