NV Accident Liability Ranges Farther Than Expected
In 2008, 18-year old Hiroyuki Joho, ran across train tracks in an effort to catch another train. Distracted by torrential rains and a large umbrella, Mr. Joho was struck and killed by an oncoming train. At impact, parts of Mr. Joho’s body were thrown, striking Ms. Gayane Zokhrabo approximately 100 yards away. Ms. Zokhrabo suffered a broken wrist, arm and injured shoulder. In Nevada, innocent bystanders can be injured in cases of negligence. Contact Benson and Bingham today for consolation, free of charge.
Injured not only physically but also financially, Ms. Zokhrabo sued the estate of Mr. Joho, looking to recoup medical costs, lost pay and other expenses. While initially struck down, the case was reinstated on appeal – simply put, a person running across train tracks has an expectation that should he or she be hit, their body or belongings may strike and injure another person.
