A COUPLE and their insurer have been ordered to pay $55,000 in the Brisbane District Court after an elderly aunt slipped on a gumnut while visiting.
Florence Agnes Welch was 76 when she fell over while walking down the stairs at Tim and Jane Graham's Brisbane home in 2006.
She sued the couple and NRMA Insurance over claims they breached their duty of care by not ensuring a path was kept clear.
WOW. NICE AUNTY TO SUE NEPHEW & NIECE. RIDICULOUS. MIGHT STOP HAVING PEOPLE OVER IN CASE THEY STEP ON A LEAF AND TWIST THEIR ANKLE.
