    Abstract

    At least one person per day attending the A&E department at King's College Hospital has sustained injuries from uneven pavements. The injuries have a significant morbidity as well as mortality of 1%. A&E records can be a source of useful information to aid local authorities in identifying areas associated with these injuries in order to reduce their frequency and subsequent claims for compensation.
