but, if a person has their mobility significantly affected after such a fall, is compensation so out of order?

I also have two small children who fall over all the time. I'm not bothered about them, they bounce.

I think compensation is very justified in this case Martyn; a dodgy paving slab is very quantifiable hazard and cheap to put right - given enough time chances are someone will trip on it in any weather, time of day etc; not always so for an included fork on a beech thats stood for ever and a day.
