Slips, trips, and falls happen on a daily basis and are common types of accidents, so it’s understandable that many people don’t associate serious injuries with them since the injuries are often minor. Unfortunately, slip and fall accidents can also be severe, and they can result in lifelong and permanent injuries. In some cases, a slip and fall accident can be fatal. Some of these life-altering injuries include:
- Back injuries
- Head injuries
- Facial injuries
- Neck injuries
- Bone fractures
- Spinal injuries
- Brain trauma and traumatic brain injuries
Slip and fall accidents can occur anywhere and often happen when you least expect them to, but some common places that slip and fall accidents occur include:
- Private residences
- Shopping malls
- Grocery stores
- Bars, restaurants, and clubs
- The workplace
- Construction areas
- Stairs with poor lighting or loose handrails
- Moving and stationary walkways, such as elevators, sidewalks or curbs
- Parking lots, driveways, and parking garages
- Pool areas
If you were the plaintiff in a slip and fall case and received a monetary award in the form of monthly payments, it is likely you were awarded a structured settlement annuity. Because a slip and fall accident can result in substantial medical costs (plus a loss of income if the plaintiff can’t return to work as a result of his or her injuries), slip and fall cases and other types of personal injury claims often result in large monetary awards.
Although the long-term payments you are receiving were meant to be enough to take care of any medical bills or loss of income, the periodic structure does not always work out. This is how Peachtree Financial Solutions can help.
