Leib Spektor, a man of 58 years of age, was on his way to work in February 2006 and travelled through Canada Water station, where a ticket inspector challenged the route he had taken.
The dispute between Mr Spektor and the employee subsequently escalated to the claimant being physically pushed back over the barrier, which caused him injuries to his neck and back, as well as a form of post-traumatic stress disorder, Deputy Judge Satinder Hunjan ruled at London's High Court.
It was decided that the employee of the Underground - which is managed by Transport for London - had used "inappropriate force" on Mr Spektor, resulting in him being awarded £11,925 in personal injury damages.
