A New Jersey woman suing Dunkin’ Donuts over hot coffee has settled for more than half a million dollars.

Maria Marsala, of N. Plainfield, spilled hot coffee on her face and neck back in January 2012 when she tripped over a spike exposed from a dislodged curb stop. She also suffered cuts to her right hand and right knee.

The case was scheduled to go to trial later this month, however, Marsala agreed to settle the lawsuit ahead of time, according to NJ.com. She’ll receive $522,000 from the coffee chain for her trouble.
