An 83-year-old American woman has sued Apple for 1 million dollars after she failed to see the glass door at the tech giant’s office and smashed her face.
Evelyn Paswall, a former Manhattan fur-company vice president, went to Apple’s Manhasset store to return an iPhone on December 13.
While approaching the store, Paswall didn’t realize she was heading straight for a wall of glass.
She smashed her face against it, breaking her nose, Paswall claims in her suit filed in the US Eastern District federal court.
Now the Forest Hills, Queens, resident, Paswall claimed in her lawsuit that the company was negligent not elderly-proofing the store’s see-through façade, The New York Post reports.
She argues that Apple should have put marks on the glass that older people could spot before they come face-to-face with disaster.
“The defendant was negligent . . . in allowing a clear, see-through glass wall and/or door to exist without proper warning,” Paswall suit said.
