A woman fractured her thumb, grazed her hands and bruised her knees when she fell over a Tasmanian tiger sculpture in the Brisbane Street Mall.
Shirley Strochnetter, of Perth, was shopping in the mall on Monday while waiting for her car to be serviced when she tripped.
She said a man on a bike was coming toward her quickly, so she tried to sidestep to get out of his way, but she tripped over one of the Tasmanian tigers mounted to the ground.
"I didn't even see it there because I just stepped over to the side to get out of the way," Mrs Strochnetter said.
"I got really upset about it."
Mrs Strochnetter said she was shaken after the fall, but lots of people stopped to help her.
"People came running, I was shaking, I had blood," she said.
A woman cleaned Mrs Strochnetter's hands and put Band-Aids on her cuts.
Coffee Republic owner Robin Smith got Mrs Strochnetter a cup of tea and sat with her after the fall.
Mrs Strochnetter said she reported her fall to the City of Launceston council and told them the tigers need to be raised.
"I think they're a bit dangerous. Apparently, I'm not the only person to fall," Mrs Strochnetter said.
City of Launceston general manager Michael Stretton said this was the first such incident to be logged to the council in six months, with six other reports received since the sculptures were installed.
"In the majority of these instances, inattention was found to be the cause," he said.
Mr Smith said this was the fifth or sixth person he knew who'd tripped over the sculptures and hit the ground.
"Ideally we would like the tigers to be raised at the very least on landscaping boulders," he said.
Mr Smith has raised concerns about the tigers to the council since July 2017.
"We haven't really got any acknowledgement firstly that there is an issue, and secondly there is anything that can be done about it," he said.
Mr Stretton said it was important to understand that the council regularly logged many more incidents - for example, people tripping over footpaths across the city - than in the mall.
"Two risk assessments have been completed on the Brisbane St Mall redevelopment, and the project is DDA compliant," he said.
The sculptures were installed as part of the Brisbane Street Mall redevelopment, which included the 10 bronze sculptures 100 seats, 300 square metres of roof canopy, LED lighting, upgraded stormwater infrastructure, and 55,000 new pavement tiles.
The Tasmanian tiger sculptures in Civic Square are mounted on a garden bed.
