Man receives $7.5 million in slip and fall verdict
A man that sued Starbucks is walking away from the trial with $7.5 million. He filed a slip and fall lawsuit against the national chain after a slip and fall injury at a San Diego Starbucks left him unable to provide for his family.
The man lost his footing in a Vista Starbucks as he was walking to pick up his order. The floor was slick and he ended up hitting his head. The complications from the head injuries he received caused him to cease work as a chiropractor.
The jury determined that Starbucks was negligent in maintaining their properties and that negligence was the sole reason why the slip and fall lawsuit was filed. The jury reached a verdict of $7.5 million, with $1 million of that amount being awarded to the man’s wife for loss of relationship aspects.
