CBS New York reports that 83-year old Evelyn Paswall is suing Apple after walking into the glass walls at the Apple Store Manhassett on Long Island. She smashed her face into the glass door and ended up breaking her nose.
The Apple Store has the ultra-clear floor-to-ceiling glass walls at the front and rear of the store.
CBS New York reports:
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.”
The 83-year old woman who had gone to the Apple Store to return her iPhone is suing Apple for $75,000 towards medical expenses plus punitive damages for negligence totaling $1 million.
Interestingly, as MacRumors points out, Apple had installed white stickers as you can see below after visitor collision last year. But according to the plantiff’s lawyer, any markings are insufficient.
