A South Carolina woman received $ 10 million from a jury for sustaining injuries after stepping on a rusty nail at Walmart.

April Jones sued the supermarket chain after she was injured shopping in a main aisle at one of the stores located in Florence, South Carolina, in June 2015.

Jones had to undergo multiple surgeries and eventually had your leg amputated as a result of an infection caused by the infected nail.

Jones initially had to have the second toe of his right foot amputated before having three more toes removed.

Then, as the infection progressed, doctors had to amputate his leg above the knee.

Jones has been in a wheelchair for the past six years and he has to depend on his adult children, as reported in the New York Post.

The jury deliberated for about 100 minutes before awarding Jones the $ 10 million.

The woman will use the money to buy a prosthesis, make her home more wheelchair-friendly and cover her medical expenses, her lawyers said.

“The jury sent a message to Walmart that if you enter Florence County and injure one of their own, they will make sure that person is taken care of,” said Roy Willey, one of Jones’ attorneys.
