What is the name of your state? This is in the state of California. I was using one of Costco's motorized carts and I put my purse over the middle post of it. I went to stand up to look at something and I stepped off with my left foot. I went to step off with my right foot but got it caught in my purse and I tripped. I fell on their concrete floor and broke my left ankle and smashed my right shoulder. I know it was my fault and Costco has tape of the accident showing that. I am wondering if I have a case to have them pay for my injury.

There does not appear to be any negligence on the part of Costco.

Why do you think Costco might pay for your injury?

So far all Doraine has asked us is if Costco could pay for an injury that she admits was her fault. It is not a bad question because there are in fact cases where negligence can be shared.

With the facts as presented, of course, Costco cannot be held liable for the injury and is not obligated to pay.

Doraine has not challenged our assessment.
