Florida woman severely burned by Starbucks coffee awarded $100K

Florida woman severely burned by Starbucks coffee awarded $100K

She accepted a Venti size cup of Pike's Place coffee, and as she attempted to hand it to her passenger, the cup's lid popped off.

A jury ordered Starbucks to pay up - to the tune of $100,000 - after a woman was burned when the lid on her coffee cup came off in her auto and the hot coffee burned her.

Mogavero won the suit in Duval County after a jury found the coffee chain negligent for the lid popping off their coffee cup and resulting in the hot beverage spilling in her lap, according to court records.

A U.S. woman has been awarded more than $100,000 (£77,000) after being severely scalded by a cup of Starbucks coffee. The judge denied the company's request and let the case go to trial, and a jury disagreed with Starbucks, finding that the company bore 80 percent of the responsibility for the spill.

It's not the first time there has been a lawsuit over hot coffee that injured someone.

Morgan & Morgan, the law firm representing the mother of three, blamed Starbucks for the spill, arguing that they should do a better job of letting customers know that their coffee lids can sometimes pop off or cause leaks. "We're considering an appeal". Despite this amount, they said it "would not be relevant" to warn customers of this risk, Mogavero's lawyers said.

A plastic surgeon said that Mogavero would have to live with the scars, Earle said.

During the trial, a Starbucks representative testified, saying the coffee giant gets at least 80 complaints a month regarding issues related to their lids. "Starbucks kind of never took any responsibility".
