Starbucks to pay for slip and fall accident

A San Diego Superior Court jury awarded a man $7.5 million for a slip and fall accident that occurred at Starbucks.

The man was walking from the cashier to the pickup counter at a Starbucks in 2008 when he slipped on the floor the manager was mopping. He injured his head and has not been able to return to work as a chiropractor since the fall.

Court documents show that the jury agreed with the prosecutors that Starbucks Coffee Co. was negligent in the maintenance of its property. The $7.5 million will compensate the man for lost income, medical expenses, and the loss of enjoyment of life. $1 million will go to his wife for loss of consortium.
