while shopping in pathmark, I slipped on the wet floor and slid into the broken glass from the bottle of apple juice I was carrying in my hand. I filed a report with the manager at Pathmark and went home. Do I have a case against Pathmark even thought I did not seek treatment at the hospital.

If you were not injured seriously enough to seek medical attention, it would not make sense to bring a claim.
It is difficult to prove fault in a supermarket cases and if the damages are not sufficient it simply does not make economic sense.
In most cases, a rear end collision is automatically the fault of the following driver. However, if it was a minor collision and you did not suffer what the law considers to be a "serious injury" New York personal injury law limits your right to recovery would be limited to your "no fault" benefits, i.e. medical bills and lost wages up to fifty thousand dollars.
