Walmart says it plans to appeal, claiming any negligence was Walker's fault.
In June 2015, after picking out a watermelon from a display, Walker's foot became caught in a wooden pallet beneath the watermelons.
A jury chose to award him $2.5M after his lawyer successfully argued that the retailer didn't care enough to secure a pallet where the fruit was placed and subsequently entrapped the man's foot.
A jury has awarded $7.5m (£5.7m) to a customer who was injured while picking up a watermelon at a Walmart in the U.S. state of Alabama. He turned, unaware that the pallet was there, and fell and shattered his hip, court documents state.
A spokesman for Walmart said the damages are excessive, and they intend to appeal.
His lawyers argued: "Walmart had a responsibility to its customers to provide a safe environment and should have known the pallet could cause an injury".

Charles Gower, one of Walker's attorneys, tells The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer that Walmart should have covered the pallet so it couldn't entangle a shopper's foot. Walmart maintains that the pallet was not unsafe, and, according to court filings, has not changed its display.
