Injured By Shopping Cart At Store – MN Attorneys


Our personal injury attorneys have worked on a surprising number of cases where our client was injured by a shopping cart at a store. It is also surprising how serious the injury can be from a shopping cart accident.

The most frequent shopping cart injury occurs when a store employee is rounding up carts and pushing a line of them into the store. Sometimes the store employee will have a long line of carts that they are pushing, and they get distracted or don’t look where they are going, so they push the carts into someone.  We have had clients hit from behind or in the back by a shopping cart, and we have also had a client whose foot was run over by a shopping cart.

Most cases where someone is hit by a shopping cart don’t result in a significant injury. If you are just bruised, it will probably not be worth getting a lawyer.  However, some of our cases have resulted in permanent injuries and even surgery for people hit by a shopping cart. On reason for this is that some stores use the biggest possible shopping cart so the customer can put more in it.

Many stores have “medical payment coverage” that will pay a limited amount of medical bills just because you were injured at the store. As long as you report the incident while you were there, you should not have a problem getting that insurance coverage. However, beyond that limited amount, you need to be able to prove it was the store’s fault that you were injured.
