No, you should not give a statement. You have no duty to give a formal statement. What you should do is, as soon as the incident occurs, bring it to the property owner’s attention. You can do an incident report and just give them brief details on what happened. If there was a substance on the floor, make sure photos are taken, and make sure it’s documented by employees. Make sure you know who those employees are. If there’s some other defect in the condition, make sure that that is documented, but do not give a full blown statement. You want to retain your attorney first and let us work with the insurance company to either give an unrecorded statement or potentially not agree to a statement, especially if you had initially given them some information on what occurred.
