If the business knew or shoudl hav eknown about the hole, then you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills and pain and suffering. You di dwell to report the incidnet immediately, and to get the name and contact information of the witness. Hopefully, the assistant manager made an internal report, to alert the comopany and their insurer, that you might be making a claim. You may not have the authority to "force" the comapnyy to fill the hole. But, they woudl be fools not to, when there has been aclaim for injury. Let me know what county the incident occurred in and I may be able refer an attorney in your area. in the mean time, follow your doctor's instructions to get yourself healthy again.

Good luck
