A federal jury in Valdosta awarded more than $ 250,000 to a woman who said she slipped into a puddle of water at a Tifton Walmart and injured her hand to keep from falling.

The jury's judgment of a quarter of a million was increased by $ 9,000 after the jury found Walmart made a "frivolous claim" in defending the case.
