A: A fall in a store is an area of law known as premises liability. The store or person in control of the premises is responsible for the fall if their negligence in some way caused the fall. The mere fact that the fall occurred there is not sufficient. The law requires that the store be responsible if, through one of its employees, the store caused the hazard which resulted in the fall or, if the hazard was caused by someone else, that the hazard was there long enough that the store should have found it and corrected it before the fall occurred.
