A San Diego man has been awarded $7.5 million by a San Diego Superior Court jury after suffering an injury at a Starbucks.
In 2008, the man was in a Starbucks walking from the cashier to the pickup counter when he slipped and fell on the floor as a store manager was mopping. He hit his head and sustained injuries that have since prevented him from returning to work as a chiropractor.
The jury decided that Starbucks Coffee Co. was negligent in maintaining its property and responsible for the fall. About $6.5 million will go towards the man’s lost income, medical expenses, and loss of enjoyment of life. $1 million was awarded to his wife for loss of consortium.
