Woman Sues Apple For $1 Million After Colliding With Glass Door
It doesn’t get any more American than Apple Pie or Apple, so the news that a 83 year old woman is suing Apple because she collided with a glass door in one of its store is not surprising at all.
Evelyn Paswall, a 83 year old grandmother from Long Island wants $1 million as compensation for the broken nose she suffered when she walked head on into the glass door. This happened despite Apple’s decision to place warning stickers on many of its glass doors after other incidents left people with injuries.
According to Paswall’s lawyers, “There were no markings on the glass or they were inadequate. My client is an octogenarian. She sees well, but she did not see any glass. Apple wants to be cool and modern and have the type of architecture that would appeal to the tech crowd, but on the other hand, they have to appreciate the danger that this high-tech modern architecture poses to some people.”
Apple stores are known for their plush and aesthetic look and feel, and nothing does that well like ‘glass’. But if 83 year old grandmothers are going to walk into glass doors and sue for $1 million then perhaps it’s time to rethink the whole ‘door thing’.
