Tripping on uneven paving or road surfaces and stairs are some of the most common accidents. Although many trip injuries are minor, some can be serious and have long-term effects.
These accidents can happen anywhere at any time, including in a public place, out shopping, while in a pub, restaurant or other leisure facility or in school, college or hospital. It may be tripping on broken paving stone in the street, or on faulty uneven stairs in a restaurant.
