The parents / guardians of the two children who were so irresponsible as to let their children run around in a store. (I can only hope that the adults learned from this experience and the kids were not hurt too badly.)

This information does not constitute legal advice and does not establish an attorney-client relationship.

If neither child sustained injuries sufficient enough to go to the doctor, the issue of liability (who is at fault) is moot. There is no legal case worth pursuing. If the children were injured, liability would most likely be shared since both parents let their kids run in the aisles.

The parent is liable in every aspect.
