Shopping Cart From Kroger Hit My Parked Car*

If you were shopping and a shopping cart from Kroger, or any other grocery store, hit your parked car, you may want to consider pursuing a personal injury claim against the retailer to recover compensation for your property damages sustained in the accident.

Causes Of Shopping Cart Accidents

There are many causes for shopping cart accidents, but usually these accidents are caused by negligence. If you can show that the accident was caused by the negligence of the employees of the grocery store, you can hold the retailer responsible for your damages. You can pursue a personal injury claim against Kroger, or any other grocery store seeking compensation for your property damages. You should always get a copy of the accident report and then get photos of the accident scene and of the damages to your vehicle. Be sure to maintain documentation that shows your losses and how the accident occurred.

Store employees should make sure shopping carts are put away so they cannot cause damages. If they fail to properly put away shopping carts, or if they leave carts unattended and left where they can do damage, they are liable. The entire accident could have been caught on surveillance cameras. You should check to see if any witnesses saw the accident. If so, you will need to ask for witness statements, and ask for their names and contact details if you need to get more information later.

Kinds Of Damages Sustained In a Shopping Cart Accident

If a shopping cart from Kroger, or any other grocery store, hit your parked car, you could suffer different damages. Your car might have paint damage, such as chips or scratches. There could be dents, dings, broken lights, or broken glass. You will need to take your vehicle to a repair shop so a qualified technician can complete a written estimate that details the damages your vehicle sustained and the cost of repairing those damages. Photos of the damages can help support your claim as well.

Work With a Personal Injury Attorney

If a shopping cart from a grocery store has hit your parked car, you should contact a personal injury lawyer who is licensed in your state. With the help of an accident injury attorney you are much more likely to recover compensation for your damages. With the help of a lawyer, you will establish stronger evidence and prove the losses that you suffered and why these damages resulted. When you retain a personal injury lawyer, you will not have to pay anything upfront. Instead, your lawyer will take your case on a contingency basis, which means your lawyer will not get paid until you win your case!
