Alice Mae Suits was awarded $258,000 after falling and injuring herself with a shopping cart in the Kohl’s parking lot. While the seventy-four-year-old was moving across the store’s parking lot, the cart’s wheel became lodged into a crack hurdling Suits forward onto the pavement.
Her face suffered lacerations from the fall and her shins were badly injured from hitting a bar on the bottom of the cart. Total medical expenses amounted to $48,000 in which Suits expected to recover after the incident. Attorneys proved Kohl’s negligence when designing their shopping carts claiming their wheels were small and break down easier than others. These smaller wheels pose conflicts when trying to control the cart over small cracks and bumps on the department store’s pavement. Suits’ lawsuit was tried and deemed favorable in court.
