    Sure, you can sue. I just don't see you winning. You knew the floor was wet, you reported it and then you failed to avoid it and fell.

    Seems like your own fault to me.

    Were you taken by ambulance to the ER? What were your injuries?

    Agree.

    That said, the store may have insurance that includes a coverage that will pay up to some relatively small amount (e.g., $5-10k) for medical bills for injuries occurring on the premises, regardless of fault. After you slipped and fell, did you report what happened to the store manager? If not, why not? If so, what happened as a result?

    Seems like "lookingforanswers" is simply "looking for easy money".
