An 83 year old woman slipped into the glass door at the Manhasset New York Apple store and broke her nose. She is now suing the Cupertino company for one million dollars.
Evelyn Paswall is a former Vice President for a Manhattan fur company. She is claiming that Apple is negligent for not elderly proofing their glass doors. Evidently the Apple store in Manhasset had done such a great job of cleaning the glass that Paswall didn’t see the door and walked right into it.
“Apple wants to be cool and modern and have the type of architecture that would appeal to the tech crowd,” said her attorney, Derek T. Smith told the NY Post. “But on the other hand, they have to appreciate the danger that this high-tech modern architecture poses to some people.”
