When it comes to tripping accidents they really can occur anywhere.
Over the years our compensation in Pontllanfraith solicitors have handled a wide variety of cases, from trips in public places to those that have occurred at work.
For example, the most common form of tripping accident often involves raised pavement, or uneven path surfaces. Such surfaces can be difficult to spot when you are walking along and going about your daily basis. As a result it is easy to catch your toe in a raised piece of paving slab, and this in turn is likely to make you trip, causing you to fall and potentially having a serious personal injury.
Trips can also occur inside public buildings, such as shops and supermarkets. Again flooring may be to blame, perhaps a loose floorboard, carpet tile or even raised floor tile could all be the cause of a tripping accident. However, you could also be tripped over by a hazard which should not have been there, and was not suitably signed so as to provide warning.
