Walmart Drops Lawsuit Against Brain Damaged Employee
Last month, I posted about a Walmart employee who was involved in a serious accident with a truck that caused her various permanent brain injuries. Walmart had filed a lawsuit to collect their medical expenses after the successful trial of the woman’s case.
Earlier this month, Walmart decided to drop its lawsuit for subrogation rights of this claim. Walmart was criticized by many organizations and lawmakers who were in disbelief that the corporate giant would take such a position. Wal-Mart’s top executive for human resources, Pat Curran, wrote that Shank’s extraordinary situation had made the company re-examine its stance. Good idea.
