Question

John accidently ran over Graham's toes with his motorcycle. As a result, Graham had to spend the night in the

hospital. While he was in the hospital, a thief saw that Graham's house was empty, broke in, and stole his antique 8 track tape player.

Graham sues John for negligence for running over his foot and wins. Will Graham be able to recover for the loss of his 8 track tape player in addition to his other damages like medical costs, pain and suffering, and loss of wages?

1.Probably. John should have known that he was going to cause other damage to Graham besides just his foot.

2.Probably. Once John decided to operate his motorcycle, he assumed the risk and became responsible for everything that happened, no matter what.

3.Probably not. It was not foreseeable that John's negligent operation of a motorcycle could cause the disappearance of an 8 track tape player miles away.

4.Probably not. Graham won't be able to recover because the value of the 8 track tape player is negligible.
