Did you keep a log of the pain you are suffering or have suffered each day. If so, then you can take that to the attorney, along with your medical bills and see if there is a viable claim. You can also try to negotiate directly with the store's insurance company for a settlement but keep in mind if there isn't a whole lot of injury there isn't a whole lot of settlement.
