Starbucks Coffee Co. has been ordered by a San Diego Superior Court jury to pay $7.5 million to a man who slipped and fell on its premises.
The man was in a local Starbucks in 2008 when he slipped on the wet floor a store manager was mopping. He hit his head on the floor and has not been able to return to his job as a chiropractor since the fall.
Starbucks was found negligent in the maintenance of its property and will compensate the man for his lost wages, loss of enjoyment of life, and medical bills. His wife will also receive $1 million for loss of consortium.
