What Should I Do If I Slip and Fall at a Georgia Grocery Store?

If you slip and fall in a grocery store, there are three things you should do:

1: Report the slip and fall to management. This is important because the general manager of the store is tasked with finding the slip and fall on the video and reporting it to corporate and the insurance company. If you report it, they will have a timestamp of when you fell so they can go back to the video and capture the fall. If you do not report it, they may not be able to find the video footage, or they may claim that they have no record of you falling.
2: Take pictures of the obstruction. Whatever caused you to fall, whether it was water, a bag of peas, or orange juice, it is important to be able to describe what caused you to fall. Take pictures of the obstruction so that you have evidence of what caused your fall.
3: Gather witnesses. If you have slipped and fallen, it is likely that someone will help you up or ask if you are OK. Get the names and phone numbers of any witnesses, if you are able. The store manager may say that they will get the names and numbers of witnesses for you, but it is best to do this yourself.
