Court rules in favor of traffic accident victim

13-11-2009

A Czech court has thrown out claims for damages brought by a company against an 18-year-old accident victim who was run over and left for dead by one of their employees who was driving a company car. The company said the accident victim should pay 34000 Czech crowns or 2000 US dollars for damages caused to the vehicle. The court ruled Friday that on ethical grounds the 15-year-old traffic accident victim does not have to pay for the damage.
