Millions of Americans stop by Starbucks to grab a coffee and/or something to eat at least once a week. As a customer, you are legally considered an “invitee” under premises liability law. As an invitee, you are owed a specific duty of care with regard to your well-being and safety while on the premises. If the business is negligent in providing this duty of care and you are injured as a result, you may have a valid claim for damages.

Due to the complex nature of premises liability law–as well as the stigma associated with these type of cases–it is in your best interest to first discuss your case with a personal injury lawyer. A lawyer can help determine the strength of your case, as well as explain the legal options available to you. Luckily, that lawyers at 1-800-ATTORNEY offer free consultations on all slip and fall cases. Additionally, if we take on your case, we’ll do so on a contingency fee agreement. If we don’t help win you money, you never pay us a single cent.

Previous Slip and Fall Lawsuits Against Starbucks

Five years ago on September 27th, Starbucks settled a lawsuit with Mrs. Mildred Rodgers for $4.8 million after she fell at a Starbucks location and fractured her leg as she entered the premises via the back door. The cause of her fall was a protruding portion of the flooring. She later suffered a stroke in the course of her treatment to fix her fractured her leg.

Slip and Fall Accidents at Starbucks

Starbucks refused to admit to the fact that their negligence directly led to the accident, but at trial, a health inspector noted that she had cited Starbucks for that very same section of the flooring just one hour before Rodgers’ accident occurred. A contractor also stated that he told Starbucks the floor needed to be replaced seven months prior, but Starbucks chose to ignore the warning.

In another incident, a San Diego chiropractor was awarded $7.5 million by a jury after he slipped and fell on wet flooring as he left the counter of a local Starbucks. After the incident, he was put on many medications which changed his disposition, and underwent surgery to correct his injuries as well as brain injury therapy for more than a year in an effort to recover. Starbucks released a statement shortly after the verdict was announced, stating that they were disappointed with the verdict amount.

What the Law Says Regarding Premises Liability Cases

According to the law, you as a business patron are afforded the highest level of care because as an invitee, the business is benefiting from having you on their premises. The property managers are required to repair and correct known dangers, as well as inspect for, discover, and correct unknown hazards in areas where customers have access. If the area cannot be corrected, they must adequately warn the customer of known dangers. Failure to do so amounts to negligence and puts the well-being of innocent people at risk.
