An employee lost his leg in an industrial accident when a construction worker dropped a truckload of plywood on top of him. The firm was successful in bringing suit against the construction company, which attempted to deny the claim on the theory that the injured worker should have kept a better lookout on the job site and that the loads of plywood falling off trucks were an open and obvious danger. The construction employee who was to blame then moved to Utah and refused to return to New Hampshire to give sworn testimony about the events. After the firm successfully secured a default order against the absent worker, the insurance company settled the lawsuit.
