Shopping Cart From Dollar General Hit My Parked Car*

Causes Of Shopping Cart Accidents

There are various causes for shopping cart accidents, but if a shopping cart from a discount variety store chain hit your parked car and was caused by the negligence of the store employees, you can hold the store responsible for your damages and pursue a personal injury claim to recoup your property damages. You will need to gather evidence and supporting documentation to show your damages and how they occurred. Always file an accident report when such accidents occur.

To gather supporting evidence, take photos of the accident scene and of the damages that your car suffered when a shopping cart from Dollar General, or any other discount variety store chain hit your car. Ask any witnesses to provide written statements regarding what happened. Also, get the names of witnesses and their contact details because you may need more information later. Check to see if any surveillance cameras could have caught the entire incident on tape.

Kinds Of Damages Sustained In A Shopping Cart Accident

Different kinds of property damages could result from your car being hit by a shopping cart. Some damages from such accidents include dings, dents, scratches, or chipped paint. In some cases, parking lights, turn signals, headlights, or taillights could be broken, which will add to the cost of the vehicle repairs. Be sure you take your vehicle to a qualified auto repair facility so you can get a written estimate that shows the damages your vehicle sustained in the accident.

Work With A Personal Injury Attorney
