A tripping accident normally occurs when a person trips on a surface which is raised above a surrounding surface or walkway. An example of a trip claim would be where a paving stone on a footpath is raised up thereby creating a tripping point. Additionally, a tripping accidents can also occur when objects or debris are left on a path or walkway.
A slip accident normally occurs due to the presence of a liquid substance on a walkway. The most common example of a substance giving rise to a slipping accident would be a spillage of water. Such slipping accidents normally occur in the work place, in public buildings, or in supermarkets.
