A southern California man who sued Starbucks Coffee Co. for injuries he sustained in a slip and fall accident has been awarded $7.5 million by a San Diego Superior Court jury last week.
In 2008, the man was in the coffee shop when he fell on the wet floor. Ongoing complications from his head injury has prevented him from returning to work since the fall. Starbucks Coffee Co. was found negligent in the maintenance of its property.
The verdict will compensate the man for his lost income, medical expenses, and loss of enjoyment of life while his wife will also receive money for loss of consortium.
