K Mart Corporation3231 Chicago Rd. Steger, Illinois United States of America
On date of accident 4-30-2010 11am, wind blowing from the south to the north (I have print out of weather for that date in Steger, IL). Car parked 2 or 3 stalls north of a BROKEN cart corral in the KMart parking lot. There is no bar at the bottom of this corral to keep the carts in, and the corral was out of it's usual position, south wall of corral was out 3 feet longer than the north wall of corral, making any cart blown out, head north. Wind blew cart into my car, causing almost $600 in damage! The KMart staff member even watched the wind blow 4 carts that were TOGETHER out of the corral!
Their insurance company (Sedgwick CMS) claims they have signs posted on their cart corrals, and they do...however, this is what it states: "Not responsible for cart accidents caused by customers leaving their carts in lot. [continued below]....
If the cart corral was not broken, carts would not be able to fly out no matter how windy it is. First she (supervisor at Sedgwick CMS) blamed the wind. Then she blamed the CUSTOMER! After reading to her exactly what their sign states, she asks "well isn't the cart corral in the lot?" Their sign CLEARLY states that they're not responsible for customers leaving their carts in LOT...and then states to put them in the corral! Now tell me how I'm responsible for this? They need to pay my estimate that they requested two of...just to deny! $579.76!
