This article is titled "Paddington station: Commuter gets £27k for 'possible pigeon poo slip'". Later in the article is say the compensation was payed out after "possibly slipping". Finally, it references a "possible lacerated finger" as a cause for compensation payout.
What does possible/possibly mean in this context? Is it that cause was possibly the fault of the party making the payout or that it was possible that the slip happened, or some other meaning?
