People suffer injuries in slip, trip and fall accidents every day. In the UK, they do so in their hundreds if not thousands. If that sounds unbelievable, then take a look at the HSE annual statistics relating to accidents at work. In 2019/2020, there were 758,000 accidents at work where the victim sustained a non-fatal injury. Of those, a whopping 29% resulted from ‘slips, trips or falls on the same level.’ In other words, every day, over 600 slip and trip accidents in which someone gets injured happen in the workplace alone.
Slip and trip accidents do not only happen in the workplace. Trip, slip and fall accidents in a public place are everyday, commonplace occurrences.
