    First ignore any PM's you now may get from lurkers here offering to take this on for you.

    And any recommendations from anyone relatively new or low post counts.

    Have you sustained life changing injury? Or are you just trying your luck?

    Good luck!

    Do you have legal cover on your house insurance? If so, they may look at your case.

    However, I broke and dislocated my ankle by tripping on something left in an aisle in a certain well-known supermarket a few years ago - ambulance, needed surgery, plate, pins, 3 days in hospital, and six weeks in a wheelchair, followed by a year of further treatment. I am not in favour of suing for everything, but eventually followed it up via my house insurance cover to try and get back my out of pocket expenses (physio, hire of wheelchair, loads more).

    Once T***o finally responded, they could prove by their cleaners' records that the aisle had been checked within a reasonable length of time of my accident. At that point the solicitors refused to act for me, as the probability of succeeding was less than 50%. I got absolutely nothing - not even a £5 voucher

    What do you actually need compensating for?

    A person who suffers injury due to the negligence of a third party has a legal right to recover compensation to reflect the pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused by the injury itself, quite apart from any out of pocket expenses. The OP may have difficulty if the injury is very minor because frankly it wouldn't be worth the time or effort in pursuing it, whether for them personally or for solicitors, but beyond that the injury itself is sufficient.
