(INDEPENDENTMAIL) — A jury has awarded an Anderson woman more than $4.6 million after she was stuck by a needle picked up in a Target parking lot.
Before Carla Denise Garrison’s lawsuit against Target Corp. went to trial, her lawyer offered to settle with the retailer for $12,000, but the offer was rejected. When the trial concluded Thursday, a jury determined that Garrison was entitled to well more than that. If the amount stands, it will be one of the largest awarded in the history of Anderson County litigation, according to Clerk of Court Richard Shirley.
Garrison, who goes by Denise, said Friday that she was “too overwhelmed” to talk about the case.
