Who knows? You chose to not tell us details. Did you trip over your own feet, or in a hidden pool of oil? Did you have to be rushed to the emergency room with a broken ankle, or was your ankle a little red and tender for a day or two? Did the store act negligently with a hidden danger and cause serious injury, or did you just slip and now want a big check? Details matter.

Scott is right. The first issue I look at is: Is there liability? If yes, then, I examine damages. Unless there is liability (the store is legally at fault), you have no case. However, they may still be willing to pay your medical bills. Call Scott or myself. Scott's # is above & my # is (404) 303-8875. Good luck & I hope u feel better.

It depends on what caused you to fall. If your fall resulted from negligence on the part of the store's owner/employees, such as leaving a foreign substance on the floor for a significant length of time, then you may have a case. Most slip and fall cases require a significant injury to justify the expense involved. A minor injury that heals quickly is usually not worth a lawsuit. Schedule a free consultation with a local personal injury attorney and give them all the facts in order to get a meaningful answer to your inquiry.

Maybe. You have to show not just that you were hurt, but what negilgent act the store did to cause the fall. A consultation with a lawyer will be free and will answer that. My number is 404-768-3509.
