new employee day 1 falls off back of company truck the driver of the truck who happens to be a family menber of the new employee states he saw employee fall face first very large truck so this is not likely. This happened after 3 hours on duty. Employee hires attorney on day 2 post fall. Medical record shows hx of falling out which we were not aware of. Where is this headed/

It sounds like you are all right if he had a history of passing out and didn't reveal it to you. You may want to check your applications and make sure they have a spot on there for information about dangerous conditions or conditions which could cause problems. You have to make sure they are not discriminatory in nature, but if it is a form you should be okay.

He is obviously sue happy but his hidden condition lowers his case's worth.
