Man Injured in Latham Mill Claims
He Is Incapacitated for Life and
J. H. Chambers, of this city, is
defendant in a $5d,000 personal injury
suit filed in the district court last
week. William H. Handy claims that
amount of damages for injuries re
ceived while at work at the Chambers
sawmill on October 4, 1911. Plaintiff
claims to have been caught in the live
rolls in said saw-mill and so severely and
permanently crippled as to be a physi
cal wreck and probably incapacitated
to do the work of a man and is suffer
ing severely as a result of said injury.
He asks the court for judgment for
$5*1,000 against the defendant.
When interviewed by a Sentinel rep
resentative, Mr. Chambers stated that
he did not believe the complainant had
any chance to win the suit. He said
that the accident was not a fault of
the company and that at the time of
the injury he volunteered to pay Mr,
Handy and his father wages for time
necessarily lost on account of the acci
dent and to take care of the doctor’s
bill, and that he subsequently offered
checks for the same, that of the elder
Handy being cashed.
