    So, why didn't you seek medical attention without being invited?

    It just sounds like an accident - nothing negligent on the store's part. I don't see a case for suing the store if that is what you had in mind. Did you see a doctor - do you have any medical bills? I still don't see where the store is responsible though for your tripping.

    As an addition to my post above, it doesn't sound like you were injured externally/badly based on your post - just sore/in pain. You could have always went to a doctor (if you didn't) to be checked out.

    Are you an older woman suffering from a mental defect? Otherwise, why should anyone need to tell you there is a need for medical attention.
