How to handle a medical injury suffered at a store?

Question Details: I slipped and fell on water on the floor at a food store. There was not a wet floor sign out and the associates didnt seem to care that I fell. They did not have me fill out an incident report at the time. I needed to go to the emergency room. While there, it was determined that nothing was broken but I most likely tore the ligament in my knee. I have been referred to an orthopedic surgeon. How should I handle this incident with the store. My health insurance is not going to pay a bill that is their fault?
