Should I take legal action regarding a fall that I took in a store parking lot?

Question Details: I was grocery shopping yesterday morning.When I was done unloading my groceries, I put the cart in the cart return and walked over to the trash can to throw away the flyer.As I was walking back I fell due to a ditch in the empty parking space. The ditch is for a drain of some sort that is square and 2 to 3 inches deep with a metal drain cover. When I fell it hurt. I then got into car and left; with the pain in my knee and ankle there was no way that I was walking inside to report it. When I got home I put ice on it. Now I still have scrapes and little swelling in my elbow as well. There is nothing broken but it still hurts like hell. I'm concerned because there are a lot of elderly people who shop at that store and that ditch is very dangerous. I think something should be done.
