(Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)(NEW YORK) — An 83-year-old woman from Queens, New York wants a million dollars from Apple, after she said she recently smashed her face into the transparent door of an Apple Store on Long Island, New York, breaking her nose. According to the New York Post, Evelyn Paswell says Apple’s aesthetic is potentially hazardous to the elderly.

The attorney who filed her lawsuit, Derek T. Smith, told the Post, “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.” 

Paswell claimed to the Post that she sees well enough to drive.
