The store needs to know that the fall happened, so you must report it. You must record the incident report, but be cautious about signing. Take notice to look up for security cameras for video evidence. Notify your attorney immediately, and mention the cameras that caught the fall. Get names and numbers of witnesses, to allow your attorney to do their due diligence. This may be the key to recover.
