A: Compensation would be based on any medical treatment required to recover from the fall.

Other issues could include why you fell, and if that fall was a result of any avoidable defect or negligence on the part of the restaurant.

It is also important, in evaluating such a claim, to know whether or not the store is even aware of the fall, and if they were aware when or directly after it happened. The last question isn't a dealbreaker, but will determine how hard their insurance company is likely to fight the claim from day one.
