Waft have they offered you so far!
Sorry for the typos, I was replying to you on my iPhone.
Have you been to a doctor yet?
I have not replied in a substantive way. I am trying to gather the facts. Usually when someone gets hurt they tell me more about what they have done.
Essentially the law is that the store will be liable for damages you've sustained if you can prove damages. The reason I asked about the doctor is that you cannot prove damages without a medical report. So if you want to be able to sue successfully you will need a medical report that sets out the damages.
If the damages are not great then it may be that your best approach is simply to send the store a letter, setting out the facts and demanding compensation as they were clearly negligent and you were hurt. Or better still have a lawyer send the letter as then they will be more worried about being sued and their insurance company will make you an offer to prevent a lawsuit.
