A Long Island woman who had neck surgery after slipping on a piece of cardboard at a Starbucks inside a Connecticut casino has settled her injury case for $240,000.

In addition to a neck injury, 59-year-old Theresa Tedesco suffered a herniated disc, rotator cuff tendonitis, right arm pain, shoulder pain and had difficulty sleeping following the December 2012 incident inside the Mohegan Sun, according to her attorney, Ryan Miller.

“She described it as slipping on a banana peel,” said Miller, a partner with Rosenberg, Miller, Hite & Morilla in Stratford. “What looked like a rug at the entrance was actually a piece of cardboard upside down.”
