A chiropractor from California was awarded $7.5 million by a San Diego Superior Court jury last week in his slip and fall lawsuit against Starbucks Coffee Co.
The man was in a Starbucks in 2008 when he slipped and fell on the wet tile floor a store manager had just mopped. He suffered a head injury and complications have prevented him from returning to work. The jury found Starbucks Coffee Co. negligent in maintaining its property.
$1 million of the verdict money will go towards the man's wife for loss of consortium and the rest will compensatoin the man for medical expenses, lost income, and loss of enjoyment of life.
