Starbucks to pay $7.5 million for slip and fall accident

Posted under Lake Geneva premise liability attorneys

A San Diego Superior County jury awarded a man $7.5 million at Starbucks Coffee Co.’s expense after he injured his head after falling in a Starbucks.

The man was at a Starbucks when he slipped and fell on the floor where a store manager was mopping. His injuries have prevented him from returning to work as a chiropractor since the fall occurred in 2008.

Starbucks Coffee Co. was found negligent by the jury and $6.5 million of the verdict will go towards the man’s medical expenses, lost income, and loss of enjoyment of life. $1 million was awarded to his wife for loss of consortium.
