It was Just Another Day at Work on Campus
Our client was a 51yr old house keeper working for a cleaning company responsible for cleaning a Boston area college. One day while on her lunch break in the college cafeteria, she slipped and fell on water near the tray return station in the cafeteria. The water was caused by the negligence of kitchen staff spraying the food trays too close to the area where patrons walked. The floor in front of the tray station was tile and should have had rugs given the likelihood that water would get on the floor and cause a slipping hazard. Both the college and their food vendor were sued and both companies contributed to the settlement.
