Kissimmee Slip & Fall Attorney
A serious fall can leave you with major injuries and medical bills
When you go to the grocery or any other commercial establishment, you have a right to expect that the premises are safe. Property owners, in fact, have a legal duty to make a reasonable effort to keep their space free of wet floors and other hazards. When they fail to do so and you slip and fall as a result, the property owner should compensate you for your injuries.
A slip and fall accident is nothing like a comedian’s pratfall; a real slip and fall can leave you with permanent injuries. Since 2003, Salazar & Kelly Law Group, P.A. has helped slip and fall victims in Central Florida win the recovery they deserve. Contact our experienced Kissimmee slip & fall attorneys today.

If you have suffered a slip and fall injury, the property owner may be responsible for the medical costs and other damages you incurred.
Fall injuries are no laughing matter
A slip and fall accident is a serious mishap that that can leave you critically injured. Typical consequences of slip and falls include:
- Broken hips — A broken hip can permanently limit your mobility, and you may require assistance with daily tasks. Broken hips are especially devastating for the elderly.
- Damaged pelvis — A bruised or shattered pelvis is extremely painful and can be difficult to rehabilitate. Treatment is expensive, and you are likely to be unable to work for a long time.
- Broken ankle — It is common to break an ankle during a fall. The damage is slow to heal, and you may need to use crutches or a wheelchair for many months.
- Damaged wrist — People instinctively extend their hands to try to break a fall. This reflexive motion often results in a sprained or broken wrist or fingers.
Under Florida law, any lawsuit based on negligence has a four-year statute of limitations. So if you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, do not delay consulting an experienced personal injury attorney.
