A slip and fall lawsuit against Starbucks has resulted in a $7.5 million payout for the victim. The accident happened in 2008 at a Starbucks located in San Diego.
The customer lost his balance while walking to the pick-up counter after paying for his drink. The area where he was walking had just been mopped by the store’s manager. The man fell on the slick floor and sustained injuries to his head. As a result of these injuries he was not able to immediately return to work as a chiropractor.
The jury in the case determined that Starbucks owed the slip and fall victim $7.5 million. This amount also factors in the $1 million awarded to the victim’s wife for losing certain aspects of their relationship due to her husband’s injuries.
