雨の日は滑ったり、転んだりする。

If する is the verb, then what is the role of the 転んだり in the grammatical sense? I understand that it is a verb which is transformed into 転んだり in a compound sentence but is it still considered a verb?

たり is a conjunctive particle, rather than a part of a conjugated verb. Verbs can follow after conjunctive particles.
