Should I ask the gas station owner to buy me new pants?

I slipped and fell in the gas station last week. There was no wet floor sign, but it was because my shoes were wet from outside anyway. The owner got me a bag of ice and a chair(I twisted my ankle), and wouldn't take my money for the bottle of pop I came in to buy. When I fell the floor rubbed a weak spot in the knee of my pants that, by the end if the night, had become a hole. Several people are telling me that I should ask the owner to reimburse me for the cost of the pants, but I just don't know...

ETA -I'll show these answers to my friends who were saying to ask him to replace them. My first reaction was like everyone on here. But I asked because sometimes I let people take advantage, and I don't always realize when that's happening.

No, you tripped you ruined a pair of pants.  Buy yourself a new pair of pants.
