If I fell on the supermarket floor, can I sue them?

The answer is not always as black and white as it seems. If you fall due to a store’s negligence like slippery floors or uneven ground then yes, that could be considered grounds for a lawsuit. However, if your slip and fall was merely an accident then no, there are no legal grounds for suing the store. So what does this mean for someone who falls in a store? It means they will need to report their injury to the manager immediately so that they are able to receive medical attention right away if needed. They should also document what happened with pictures of any injuries before leaving the scene of the incident because these photos may help prove liability in court later down the line if a settlement before trial is not reached.
