Aside from trip hazards there is the larger danger of complete slab collapse if the voids underneath your floor are large enough.

Ground Consolidation Services can level and stabilize sunken or rocking slabs, significantly reducing your risk. Even if you aren’t noticing any immediate problems, it may be worth getting your slabs tested for dangerous voids lurking beneath.
