Injured British tourist will get 560,000 CZK in compensation

Christmas tree in the Old Town Square in 2006 British tourist Malcolm Tuffin that got injured in Prague in 2003 will receive, according to the court, at least 560,000 CZK (about £13,580) in compensation. Malcolm Tuffin was badly injured by a fallen Christmas tree on Prague’s Old Town Square.

The court also decided that the city together with the organizing company Folk Art Production are both responsible for the fallen tree. According to the experts, the tree fell due to its bed quality and a gust of wind. The organizers now take extra care to make sure that it will not happen again.

The falling tree broke Tuffin’s spine and thigh-bone. After many operations he had to stay on the wheelchair for 4 months. Now he walks with a walking stick. It’s probable that Malcolm Tuffin will get more money for the expenditure for medical treatment and the loss of earnings.
