On what basis? What caused his fall?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
he just jump over small hedge and slip on the ground.,his foot twist when he hit ground.Unfortunate accident ,that's all
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Sorry for the delay.

In that case he does not have a claim I’m afraid. This was not caused by anybody’s negligence. It was just an accident. Nobody is liable for accident.

Tortious liability rests upon some form of wrongful act. There is none here.

I’m very sorry but that is the reality of his position.

Can I clarify anything for you?
