If your grocery cart rolls into another car in the parking lot of a grocery store are you responsible for the scratches on the vehicle?
Each state, city, or town has its own ordinances. In most cases, the person who chooses to use the cart is responsible for the safety of people and property in maintaining control of the cart. In too many cases, the person who causes damage by irresponsible control of a cart does not remain on the scene to accept responsibility for property damage. Always try to get the personal information from the responsible party, or if they have left the premises, check with the store management for any surveillance video that may be helpful.
A claim's adjuster to a very big, national discount store said it is definitely NOT as simple as posting a sign that limits the stores' liability. That is essentially worthless. Stores send employees out to scan the parking lot for carts. Each suit is decided on a case by case basis, and there are multiple factors. How long was the cart outside? How recently was the parking area checked? For instance, say you went inside, and 5 minutes later, someone pushes a cart into your car. You discover it and file a claim. You will probably lose, because the store will say they cannot guarantee 100% protection from shopping carts. And as long as they are actively checking and performing their due diligence, they will win. However, say the cart has been out there an hour, and then it damages your car. That may be considered negligence on the store's part and they may be considered liable. I say "may" because I am not an attorney, but I have been through the ringer with this sort of thing, and it all comes down to the judge. There may be other factors as well.
If a 5 year old child falls on her bike and scratches my car are her parents liable for the damage or do you have to eat the cost?
You are at fault! Unless you know who did it to your car. You will need to pay a insurance excess, unless you know who did it (License Plate). If you look at the Terms and Conditions when you enter the Mall/Car Park/Grocery Store you will note "Cars parked in this carpark is left here at your own risk, We will not take any responsibility for your car when it is left in the carpark"…
You are legally responsible for the loan. You would want to make certain the car is sufficiently insured and has gap insurance. If you are also on the title then you are legally responsible by way of liability for the car. Parking tickets are applied to the plate number and an excess of unpaid parking tickets can result in impoundment.
Who is responsible if someone hits my parked car with out the parking brake set and then my car hits another parked car?
The ticket is attached to the car, and the owner of the car. We loaned someone a vehicle of ours years ago, and she racked up many parking tickets at a college. Guess who was responsible for the tickets, the owner is. Unless the ticket is handed to you with your name on it, the owner is responsible.

If the driver had hit a pedestrian or a car that was sitting, waiting for a stoplight, who would be at fault? The driver is responsible for whatever he hits. While the parked car will get a parking ticket, that is not a "moving violation", and cannot be considered the cause of a collision. Drivers are responsible for avoiding ALL obstacles, even illegally parked cars.
My car is being damaged by a squirrel while parked in my rental parking space. Has happened twice in 2 weeks and has cost me over 300.00 dollars each time. Isn't my landlord responsible for damages?
Is the parking space a rental parking space, or is it the parking space for your rental apartment/home? In the case of the former, you have the right to ask your landlord for a different parking space, especially if you're the one paying its rental. In the case of the latter, unless that parking space is assigned to you -- that which you may ask to change -- then you need to park somewhere else…
Fancy parking is another way of saying parking the car front facing out and it is indeed much safer. One of the problems with parking is getting the car out of the space and back into the traffic stream. When you have to back into traffic you see less of the traffic on the road. The idea is that it is easier to block traffic for a moment to park than it is to have…

No, the employer is not responsible. Even if it is a private parking lot owned by the owner, it's no different than your car being vandalized and broken into at Wal Mart.

There is no argument for you being forced to park there because…
Who is liable if a passenger steps out of your car and bumps the car next to your car The car next to your car is parked over the line in your parking bay?
The person who stole the car is at fault. If you are trying to place blame on the parking garage, I suggest you read their parking agreement. I would bet they state clearly they are not responsible for stolen vehicles. If they do not, you may have a case. But you would have to prove they did not use reasonable care in protecting your vehicle. Do you not have insurance?
