Walmart Stampede - Wrongful Death Lawsuit

My partner, Jason D. Friedman, Esq. went on Good Morning America to discuss the wrongful death lawsuit against mega store Walmart. On Black Friday, a security guard hired by Walmart was trampled to death while trying to shelter a pregnant woman from the stampeding shoppers. There is no doubt that Walmart will be held responsible for this tragedy.  As Jason says in the video above, there were so many simple steps that could have been taken to prevent this.  I expect a big settlement will be announced within the next 6 to 8 months.  If Walmart allows this case to go to trial it would be a public relations nightmare.  We can only hope that this highly publicized tragedy will force stores to take appropriate precautions in the future.
