Woman sues Apple for $1m for walking into glass door

Octogenarian Sues Apple For Collision Related Injury

A Queens woman is suing Apple for $1,000,000 after smashing her face on a glass door at a Long Island Apple Store.

Evelyn Paswall, 83, claims that the glass doors at the front of Apple Stores pose a risk to the elderly.

Paswall’s attorney Derek T. Smith told the Post that,“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.”

Paswall claims that she didn’t realize that she was walking into a wall of glass as she approached the store, and says that she broke her nose as a result of the collision.

Her suit claims that “The defendant was negligent . . . in allowing a clear, see-through glass wall and/or door to exist without proper warning.”

As of Saturday warning strips had been posted on the glass at Apples Manhasset store.
Next she would probably break her finger using an iPad by trying to poke through it.. Anyhow is an 83 years old nose worth $1m?

I hope Apple loses just because of this.

It's not.

Is it because old people have no souls?

Re: Woman sues Apple for $1m for walking into glass door

I don't think she deserves $1mil, but the fronts of the Apple Stores can be pretty confusing with all the glass. We had glass doors and ceiling-to-floor glass windows at my old work, and we ended up having to put stickers on the windows because people were constantly walking into them.

Eyesight has nothing to do with it. Clean/clear and spotless glass used like this has fooled many people with perfect vision.

I think that's me in the first video.

Was this taken at an Office Max / Office Depot / whatever the hell it's called?

I tried to eat my Apple because I thought it was fruit. They need to put warning stickers on all Apple products so that people don't confuse it with delicious fruit. I'm suing! $$$$$$

Which is the only reason she is suing. And the reason she ask for "just" a million.

I wonder why they didn't use stickers with the Apple logo? Branding, branding, branding?

Because then they'd be sued by people trying to take a bite from those delicious looking white apples.
