At a Chicago university, a freshman was living on campus and frequented its dining hall. A third-party food service company managed the university’s dining hall. After entering the dining hall, an employee for the foodservice company struck the freshman with a large rolling metal oven. As a result of the impact, the freshman suffered a lacerated Achilles tendon, which required surgery and physical therapy. After participating in a successful mediation, the foodservice company agreed to settle the matter for $350,000.00.
