An 83-year-old Queens woman is suing Apple for negligence, claiming that the glass doors at the company's retail stores are a danger to the elderly.
Evelyn Paswall collided with one of the doors at the Manhasset, Long Island, NY Apple Store, breaking her nose. She's now seeking $1,000,000 from Apple.
Paswall's attorney, Derek T. Smith, told the New York 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."
Apple hasn't commented on the lawsuit, but the glass doors at the Manhasset Apple Store are now equipped with "warning strips" to make them easier to see.
