Shopping Cart From BJ’s Wholesale Club Hit My Parked Car*

Causes Of Shopping Cart Accidents

A shopping car accident could be caused by many things. They could be the result of a customer leaving a shopping cart out in the open and not returning it or a customer not paying attention and letting a buggy ram a car. Often, the shopping carts aren’t brought in the store by employees in a timely manner, or there isn’t enough corrals or storage spaces to keep them from hitting vehicles. Supermarket employees should regularly check the parking lot and make sure that the carts are put away so accidents can be avoided. If they fail to do this, then the accidents are caused by the store’s negligence and the supermarket can be held liable.

If you find your car was hit by a shopping cart from BJ’s Wholesale Club, or any other supermarket cart you should file an accident report. Be sure to get photos of the damages, and of the accident scene. If there were witnesses, ask them for written statements. Be sure to get the contact details for any witnesses. Maintain thorough documentation to support your claim against a supermarket after the shopping cart accident.
