My wife and I went to our local Walmart store one morning last week. After dropping her off, I circled the parking lot to go and wait for her.
It was raining and very windy that day. I noticed some loose carts on the lot and was making sure I did not hit any of them when another cart was blown right in front of my truck. I struck it on the driver side front bumper. There was no damage to the cart but it had dented my bumper.
I went in and reported it the the manager who took my statement and then went out and took some pictures. She then wanted to take some pictures of the cart. My wife and I drove over to where the cart was and as the manager of the store approached, the cart started to roll away. I had to stop it twice so she could take her picture.
She commented that the cart rolling was not good and she herself took 2 loose carts back to the store. I got a notice in the mail that Walmart was not responsible for this accident.
If the people who collect the carts had been doing their job more thoroughly, this quite possibly would not have happened. I feel this is a case of negligence and that Walmart should take responsibility for this incident.
