After being injured at a business warehouse store, is there a time limit on reporting the incident?

My daughter was injured at a warehouse store 9 months ago (an employee from the meat department stepped on her toe, causing the toe nail to be pulled up). The employee reported the incident to his supervisor. Originally I planned on taking care of the medical charges and did not report the incident myself. Now I’m having second thoughts as the charges are much higher than I expected. Is it too late to report the incident to the store, just for medical expenses?
