83-Year-Old Woman Sues APPLE Store After Smashing Her Face Into Glass Door
NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) – 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.
Does Paswall deserve the settlement? Was Apple negligent? Let us know in our comments section below…
