A: It's possible you could. A Washington attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for five weeks. As a general matter, without regard to any particular jurisdiction or state, you would need to show that your injuries were essentially the result of some defect in the floor or negligence on the part of the store. The best way to learn more about your rights would be to contact a Washington attorney who handles injury cases.
