What should I do after a slip and fall? 2 Answers as of March 21, 2011I slipped and fell on 2/1/11 in a California retail store. I had bruised knees and a sprained right wrist (went to doctor). I was right under a camera and know they have the video. I reported it and sent them all the information. I told them there was a shopping list on the floor and it was slippery and that is what I thought caused it but wasn’t sure. I received letter in mail stating the claim was denied. Can you help?

See a local personal injury attorney for a consultation. You need to determine if the store has a potential liability. That will depend in large part on two things. How long was the dangerous condition prsent - store is entitled to notice of the dangerous condition and time to correct it. The other is how obvious was the condition to the reasonable person, not just to you.
