This former pizza worker has a little slice of the good life coming to him.

A onetime Domino’s Pizza employee is $180,000 richer after winning a settlement earlier this month in his two-year-old workers’ compensation claim over getting crushed by 400 pounds of cheese while working at one of the chain’s restaurants in Connecticut, the New Haven Register reports.

The article goes on to state the following:

Mohamed Hassan, 55, of Meriden, was unloading boxes of cheese from a truck at a Domino’s in East Granby in June 2016 when he lost control of his hand truck, which slipped due to the weight of the cheese, according to the newspaper, citing the Connecticut Law Tribune.

Attorney Brooke Goff said the hand truck landed atop Hassan as he fell backwards, injuring his ankle, knee and back. He then had to wear a leg brace for six months and will likely need to have knee replacement surgery, she said.

Domino’s Pizza and its insurer, Sedgwick Insurance, agreed on April 14 to pay $180,000 to settle Hassan’s claim after initially offering $100,000. Hassan had sought $325,000.
