A Texas woman is suing Starbucks after suffering burns from a coffee ordered a Houston-area location of the coffee giant.
According to the lawsuit, which was filed in Harris County District Court, Simms was handing the hot drink back to the barista when the lid came off the cup and the drink spilled in her lap.
“As a result of the spill, [Simms] sustained first and second-degree burns causing severe personal injuries and damages,” the lawsuit says.
The lawsuit claims Starbucks created a “dangerous condition” with the drink’s temperature and “failing lid,” then failed to warn Simms. She is seeking $75,000 for personal injuries and damages.
Starbucks spokesperson said in a statement that its drinks “are served at a temperature within industry standards, and our partners take great care to ensure the beverages are safely handed off to the customer,” according to Alanis.
Simms may have a chance of winning against Starbucks. In 2017, a Florida woman won $100,000 in a lawsuit against Starbucks after her coffee cup lid popped off while receiving the drink and spilled in her lap, giving her first- and second-degree burns.
It’s also not the first time the Houston area has been in a legal battle with Starbucks. Another woman sued the company over the temperature of its hot coffee in 2016. And in 2005, the coffee company sued a Galveston bar owner who was selling “Star Bock” beer. He was ultimately allowed to sell the beer, but only in Galveston.
