Holden (plaintiff) fell in a parking lot owned by Wal-Mart (defendant), causing her injury. Holden underwent a knee replacement operation and sustained $25,000 in medical bills. Holden brought a negligence action against Wal-Mart, alleging that a hole in the parking lot caused her to fall. Evidence at trial showed that Holden had a preexisting knee condition and that regardless of the fall, Holden would have needed knee replacement surgery in five to ten years. The jury found that Holden’s total damages were only $6,000. Holden appealed, claiming that the jury made a mistake in its calculation of damages.
