Man wins slip and fall lawsuit against Starbucks
A San Diego Superior Court jury awarded a man $7.5 million last week in his slip and fall lawsuit against Starbucks Coffee Co.
According to court documents, the man was visiting the coffee shop in 2008 when he fell on the wet floor. Complications from a head injury he sustained in the fall have prevented him from returning to work as a chiropractor. The jury found Starbucks Coffee Co. negligent in maintaining its property.
The man’s wife has been awarded $1 million of the verdict money for loss of consortium and the remaining will compensate the man for his medical expenses, lost income, and loss of enjoyment of life.
