Walmart is being sued after one of its employees allegedly knocked over a woman last year while moving shopping carts.

Beverly Robinson has launched the suit against the retail giant.

She claims a Walmart worker hit her as she was placing goods into a cart in Donaldsonville, Louisiana.


The lawsuit states that she experienced several bruises, internal ailments, sprains, headaches, and mental anguish as a result of the July 2021 event.

Robinson’s attorney, Ralph Brickman, said: “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.”

Robinson is suing Walmart for more than $75,000, as well as recompense for medical and legal expenses related to the event.

The case came only a few weeks after the FTC launched another action against Walmart.

The FTC claims Walmart permitted criminals to defraud customers out of hundreds of millions of dollars by exploiting its money transfer services.

It alleges Walmart was “well aware” that scammers were exploiting its transfer services, yet still it sent or received $197 million in payments that were subject to fraud accusations, as well as $1.3 billion in other potentially fraudulent transactions.

The FTC argued: “Walmart has continued processing fraud-induced money transfers at its stores — funding telemarketing and other scams — without adopting policies and practices that effectively detect and prevent these transfers.”

In a statement, Walmart claimed the complaint was “factually flawed and legally baseless.”

“Walmart will defend the company’s robust anti-fraud efforts that have helped protect countless consumers, all while Walmart has driven down prices and saved consumers an estimated $6 billion in money transfer fees.”
