Maybe. A store is liable for a patron's fall if they created the condition or if they were aware of the condition, such as water on the floor, and had a reasonable opportunity to clean it up, or post appropriate warnings. Often stores have surveilance cameras on each aisle that can either make or break a case such as this. If you have not already done so, get medical attention and tell your doctor how you were injured. Then consult a personal injury attorney in your area.
If the store was negligent in some way, then yes. Retain a local lawyer in your city to investigate. I'm sorry, but my firm only handles very serious injuries.

It will depend on whether there was a reason for the store to post caution signs and how long the store was on notice of the dangerous condition. What did you slip on? Did the store know it was there and disregard the risk? Consult a good Montgomery County Slip and Fall lawyer in person. You can read more about Montgomery County Slip and Fall cases at the link below.
You can always sue. To win, you will have to prove that the store had notice of the condition and was negligent in not addressing it in a timely fashion.
