NY woman takes Starbucks to court over spilled coffee at airport

New York resident Jessica Pyne filed a lawsuit against coffeehouse chain Starbucks Corp. in the Harris County 215th District Court on October 12, 2016. In the lawsuit, the plaintiff is alleging that she suffered burns to the lower half of her body when a barista spilled a hot cup of coffee on her in the Starbucks at the George Bush International Airport.

According to Pyne’s lawsuit, she was at a stopover at the Bush Airport on October 13, 2014, when she got off her plane and went to the airport Starbucks to buy a coffee. She then claimed the barista managed to spill a cup of hot coffee on her lower extremities, burning her legs, ankles, and feet. Pyne also claims the Starbucks management did not extend any form of assistance or remuneration to her after the incident.

City of New York awards $2.5M to slip and fall victim

A Bronx Supreme Court jury in New York awarded $2,500,000 to James Register, who slipped and fell over a 2-inch rise in the sidewalk in front of 1890 Lexington Avenue in Manhattan. Register incurred multiple fractures to his nose and suffered from a concussion as a result of his fall.

The defendants, KNW Apartment LLC and Urban American Management, LLC, were already issued a citation three years ago by the City of New York, which ordered them to make proper repairs to the defect. Fixing the defect would have cost the companies a mere $18,000. A different victim tripped over the same sidewalk rise in 2015 and was also hurt, though that victim sustained less extreme injuries.

Gas drilling company not liable for contaminated well water

United States District Judge Charles Siragusa in Rochester, New York denied a claim put forth in December by nine southern New York homeowners that their drinking water had been contaminated by gas drilling, the Bellingham Herald reported.

The claim was filed against Colorado-based Anschutz Exploration Corp., who had established gas drilling half a mile from the homeowners’ residences.

The homeowners claimed in the lawsuit that mud and methane were found in their water after Anschutz’s first gas well was completed. However, Anschutz field experts came up with laboratory analyses that showed the methane found in the residents’ water wells did not come from the geological formation tapped by their gas wells.

Court documents also showed that Department of Environmental Conservation inspector Joseph Yarosz stated in his final deposition that Anschutz complied with all permit conditions after having inspected the two gas wells over 50 times as they were being constructed in the town of Big Flats in 2010.

We at Hach & Rose, LLP, work diligently to help our clients obtain the financial compensation they need after becoming victims of personal injury accidents because of the negligent or irresponsible actions of other parties.
