Walmart (WMT) is being sued by one of its customers after she claimed she was “violently” hit by an employee who was pushing shopping carts.
Beverly Robinson claims in her lawsuit against the retail giant that one of its employees “violently” knocked her to the ground on July 9, 2021. The worker was pushing a row of carts at the Walmart Supercenter in Donaldsonville, Louisiana, according to court documents obtained by Business Insider.
Robinson said she suffered extensive injuries, including multiple bruises, internal injuries, sprains, headaches, and emotional distress, from the accident. She is seeking damages in excess of $75,000, Fox News reported.
Her lawyer, Ralph Brickman, told Business Insider, “Beverly Robinson put the items in the grocery cart and placed her hands on the handle of the cart, when suddenly and violently she was pushed to the floor, by the force of several grocery carts being pushed into her from the opposite side, by a Walmart employee.”
The complaint goes on to say that the accident was caused by the negligence of Walmart due to an employee who “failed to keep a proper lookout for customers and failed to see what should have been seen.”
Robinson is also looking to have her medical bills repaid as well as her legal fees. She filed for support for her legal fees as she said she has been unable to work as a result of the incident, according to Business Insider.
As of Monday premarket hours, shares of Walmart were trading at $125.05, down 35 cents, or 0.28%.
