This case involves a shopper at a bix box retail chain who suffered a fatal accident while in the store’s parking lot. At the time of the incident in question, the man was leaving the store with his purchases and was proceeding through the parking lot to his car. Suddenly, the man was struck from the side by a car that was attempting to park in a vacant parking space behind the decedent. He was carried on the hood of the car for several feet until he was eventually pinned between the car and a steel bollard behind the space. The man suffered massive trauma in the accident and was immediately taken to the hospital, where he died of his wounds a few hours later. It was alleged that the design of the parking lot was unsafe, and directly contributed to the fatal accident.
