THE FLOOR IS ALWAYS WENT BECAUSE THE FREEZERS THERE ALWAYS LEAKING WATER. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO FOR THEM TO PAY FOR MY MEDICAL BILLS?
You need to get an attorney who is experienced in slip and fall cases to assist you. You need to take pictures of the leaking freezer before they fix it. Make sure you go to reputable doctors to treat your injuries. The store is not required to send you to a doctor so you need to do it on your own.
Retain a local attorney to help you file a claim against the grocery store. Otherwise contact the store manager and obtain their insurance information so you can make your own claim. If they deny your claim you will need to file a lawsuit if you want them to pay for your medical bills. In case this happens, it is almost always better if you had an attorney from the beginning that handled your claim...
Gather your medical bills and mail copies to the grocery store's manager with a letter to turn them over to the store's liability insurer. Since the fall happened yesterday you may not know how badly you were hurt so you may want to wait until your doctor releases you from care. Once that happens you should first met with an experienced attorney in your area to see if you need a lawyer to handle your case. If you can't settle the claim without a lawsuit, you must file a lawsuit against the responsible parties before the second anniversary of your fall to portect your rights.
You should retain an experienced slip and fall attorney right away. You need to send them a letter to give them notice of the incident as well as a written request to preserve all the evidence surrounding the incident, including surveillance footage capturing the fall, if any.
Meanwhile, if you are hurt, you should get yourself checked.

Some unethical business owners try their darndest to avoid responsibility for their actions. Fortunately, California has plenty of lawyers to force them to do what they should do on their own. However, the way to force them is often to sue them in court, something that requires a lawyer to get the best results.

I am licensed in California only and my answers on Avvo assume California law. Answers provided by me are for general information only. They are not legal advice. Answers must not be relied upon. Legal advice must be based on the interplay between specific exact facts and the law. This forum does not allow for the discussion of that interplay. My answer to any specific question would likely be different if that interplay were explored during an attorney-client relationship. I provide legal advice during the course of an attorney-client relationship only. The exchange of information through this forum does not establish such a relationship. That relationship is established only by personal and direct consultation with me followed by the execution of a written attorney-client agreement signed by each of us. The communications on this website are not privileged or confidential and I assume no duty to anyone by my participation on Avvo or because I have answered or commented on a question. All legal proceedings involve deadlines and time limiting statutes. So that legal rights are not lost for failure to timely take appropriate action and because I do not provide legal advice in answer to any question, if you are an interested party you should promptly and personally consult with an attorney for legal advice. Also, see Avvo's terms and conditions of use, specifically item 9, incorporated by this reference
You should obtain needed medical care and treatment immediately and follow the doctor's advice. Do not give any statement to the adverse party or insurance company nor grant them access to any medical records. Photograph the injuries and the damage done to any property. Contact a personal injury attorney in your area as soon as possible so that you can protect your rights. You may also find it helpful to review the Legal Guides I have published on Avvo.com dealing with many of the issues you are now facing. The Guides can be accessed through my profile page on Avvo.com.
