Woman Sues Apple For $1 Million After Colliding With Glass Door

Sites include . Published on April 12th, 2012. Written by Anthony West.

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’.

Should Apple abandon all-front glass setup for its stores? Share your thoughts below.

  1. Ooh hell no. Even though I’m not an apple fan. I love how they do their work. I would defiantly work for the company I dislike just because of the environments they provide. WHat they should do, is put a sign right at the entrance saying you come in at your own risk :P Problem solved!
