Court rejects compo for woman who hurt hip after ‘excessive socialising’

A woman who slipped and fell after a night of champagne, wine and cocktails on a work trip has failed again in her bid for compensation from Telstra.

Danielle Dring was attending a series of IT workshops for Telstra, where she was a senior project manager.

She met up with a friend and they shared a bottle of champagne in her Novotel on Collins hotel room in Melbourne, a bottle of wine over dinner and then went out to a cocktail bar.

Ms Dring returned to the hotel about 2.30am on the Wednesday in April 2016 and slipped on wet tiles, injuring her hip.

She tried for compensation from Telstra, arguing she had been injured at work, but the company refused.
