Wal-Mart Sued Over Cart

Comments Off

A woman has filed a premises liability lawsuit against Wal-Mart due to the placement of a push/pull cart in the store. She alleges that she fell due to a push/pull cart that she could not see.

According to the suit, Wal-Mart failed to keep its aisles clear of items that could cause a fall, and the cart in question was placed in an unsafe area “adjacent to or underneath a table of plants,” which could be difficult for passing customers to see.

As a result of Wal-Mart’s failure to warn of the danger or remove the cart from the hazardous area, the complaint alleges, Sullivan “fell onto a push/pull cart, through no fault of her own.”

The plantiff is asking for damages related to injuries sustained to her arm and shoulder. Wal-Mart has not issued a comment in the case.
