HOUSTON – A Texas man alleges he was injured while working at a Starbucks location after falling in the restroom.

Daniel Beesley filed a complaint on Feb. 7 in the Harris County District Court against Starbucks Corp., doing business as Starbucks Coffee Co., alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 2, 2017, he was injured while employed by defendant when he slipped and fell in the restroom of a Starbucks Coffee shop. He alleges he sustained serious injuries to his lower back that resulted in severe pain, mental anguish and distress, loss of earnings and pharmaceutical and medical expenses. 

The plaintiff holds Starbucks Corp., doing business as Starbucks Coffee Co., responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to maintain the restroom floors in a safe condition and failed to properly train its employees.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of more than $200,000 but less than $1 million and such other and further relief to which he may be justly entitled. He is represented by Sofia E. Bruera of Bruera Law Firm PLLC in Houston.
