Good morning. Yes, there very well could be and you want to consult with a personal injury attorney who can look into the facts and determine the value of your possible claim. I say this because your friend may have homeowners insurance and it could possible cover you for your injuries. It would need to be determined how this happened, how the ice got on the floor , if your friend new about this and other relevant details, to find out if you could sue them and recover under their insurance. It may be something which would allow compensation for the medical bills or even more, based upon the extent of the injury and the pain and suffering you are dealing with and will have to deal with in the future.
