I Slipped on a Cart Full of Products Waiting to Be Loaded on Shelves at Walmart. Do I Have a Case?

Scott Monge

That really depends. The owner of the store has a duty to exercise reasonable care to protect a patron from harm. But under “open and obvious doctrine,” the property owner is protected from liability if the danger is an open and obvious one. In the case of a cart sitting in the middle of a shopping aisle, it is unlikely that your legal claim is a valid one because you should have seen it and avoided it. However, if the cart was full of bottles of lemonade that were leaking and caused you to slip, you may have a valid personal injury claim. It is best to consult with an attorney like the Atlanta-based Accident & Disability Attorneys of Monge & Associates to determine whether your case falls into the open-and-obvious category.
