I was sitting at the drive thru window at Starbucks awaiting my order and according to the two employees statement to the police. They stated they were horsing around inside and whatever they were throwing at each other flew out the drive thru window and hit me dead in my face. I was sitting there bleeding and had a cut on the edge of the inside of my nose and above my lip. Now I have nightmares to this day and never went back. This negligence left me with a scar above my lip. Thanks Starbucks!
You should obtain needed medical care and treatment immediately and follow the doctor's advice. Do not give any statement to the adverse party or insurance company nor grant them access to any medical records. Photograph the injuries and the damage done to any property. Contact a personal injury attorney in your area as soon as possible so that you can protect your rights. You may also find it helpful to review the Legal Guides I have published on Avvo.com dealing with many of the issues you are now facing. The Guides can be accessed through my profile page on Avvo.com.

You do have a case against the individual employees and against starbucks directly under vicarious liability principles of respondeat superior. You should consult a personal injury attorney, ideally one with experience with the various forms of recovery for premises liability as well as general negligence, right away.
