Q&A: What Should I Do if I Slip and Fall in a Store?

“Hi Roller, I fell at a supermarket. What steps should I take after I fell? Is it important to hire a lawyer?”

Thanks for your question. We get asked this a lot. Here are the steps you should take after you fall at a supermarket:

  1. Seek medical attention immediately. Even if you don’t think you’re injured, it’s important to get checked out by a doctor. Some injuries, such as head injuries, may not be immediately apparent.
  2. Report the fall to the store manager. The manager should create an incident report that will document the details of the fall. This information could be important if you decide to file a personal injury lawsuit.
  3. Take photos or videos of the scene of the fall. This will help you remember the exact conditions that led to your fall.
  4. Get the contact information of any witnesses. Witnesses can provide valuable testimony about the fall.
  5. Contact Roller Law, as we do specialize in personal injury. Roller Law will help you understand your legal rights and options. We will take over and handle everything about your case, from contacting and negotiating with the store’s insurance company on your behalf to your medical appointments.


It is important to call Roller Law immediately if you have been injured in a slip and fall accident. The store’s insurance company will have its own lawyers, and they will be working to protect their interests. You need Roller Law on your side, who will fight for your rights and get you the compensation you deserve.
Here are some of the benefits of hiring a Roller Law – a personal injury law firm – after a slip and fall accident:

  • Roller Law understands your legal rights. The law can be complicated, and it can be difficult to know what your rights are after a slip and fall accident. Brian Roller and his team of personal injury lawyers can help you understand the law and how it applies to your case.
  • We will negotiate with the store’s insurance company. The store’s insurance company will be working to minimize its liability. Roller Law will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf to get you the best possible settlement.
  • Roller Law will also represent you in court if necessary. If the insurance company refuses to make a fair settlement offer, you may need to file a lawsuit. We will represent you in court and fight for your rights.

What Client Says About Us

Open quotes icon in white outline

My case was recently settled this holiday season with attorney Brian Roller. All I can is wow they are such an amazing and attentive firm. I had the pleasure of having Luz and Margaret as the assistants on the case and they were absolutely efficient. They were always available and answered all my questions in a timely manner. I received a more than great settlement and couldn’t be anymore thankful than to have had them represent me on my auto case. Would definitely use them again and million times after that if needed.
