Here is the thing i have been to this store and i just taught about it the entire front of this store is glass. How did she manage to find that place where the door was to then walk into it. Just saying it would have sounded more believable if she walked into the glass wall itself.

Yes I believe her story, because it happened to me once, my vision is very good and I am middle of 40s, i walked thru and hit my head to the Apple glass door, ithe door was so clear, the difference was I did not sue Apple.

$75,000 in medical expenses!?!?! WTF! How fast was this old women walking? I bet Apple is like "I'm sorry for keeping our store clean, go away"

Frankly this is a daft lawsuit and should be thrown out by any reasonable judge. I whacked my head off a window I didn't see in a hotel and didn't sue them. My own stupidity. It's just as its apple and people see £/¢/¥ signs as its a big company and think its okay to sue. As for the flame war going on in this thread please stop it, as a physician i can say dyspraxia is going to make you walk into a glass door as much as it's equally liable to make you walk into a regular door. And litigation for litigations sake is wrong in any country. If the elderly lady was hurt then yes it's reasonable to cover medical costs but to sue for thousands of dollars is just crazy.
Just my opinion

Obviously enough people walked into the glass door for Apple to put up the white stickers on their doors, so plenty of people do not see that glass door let alone a 85 years old woman.
As to assuming the woman walking fast to break her nose obviously have no elderly woman in their life, because most of us know majority of older woman suffer from Osteoporosis which means bones break easily.
All these people blame greed on the old woman, yet nobody complained about the lawyer. Have you guys ever heard of the term ambulance chasers? That is more likely what happened here, lawyer heard about this woman and went to her to get the lawsuit going. Most likely lawyer promised her a large sum for the injury, she said ok just like anyone that byotched about her in this thread would do. People complain about American greed when you see frivolous lawsuit, but when it is your time to get the money it then becomes your right to receive the money...

I suggest taking an actual look at the McDonalds Coffee case. It is not what people automatically think about it. And the woman in that case was only asking for medical to be paid nothing more but the jury gave her more. I don't have the link anymore but find it and look at the actual case and what they found wrong on McDonalds for that.

Dude, glass reflects stuff when there's sunlight. If you can't see that, then you have a vision impairment. I hope they take her drivers license away because I don't want this woman to hit me on the road and then claim she couldn't see my car because it's painted white. Dumb broad.

To the other guy having a go at me, I don't think the insurer of a school would have accepted liability within 2 days of receiving the claim, they admitted instantly that they were in the wrong and the whole thing was settled within a few months... I know it was fairly dumb to run into a door but when you expect it to open when you push it and it doesn't, well, bad things happen... I'd have laughed at myself had my nose not been spread across my face! I think just because of I did this it's not right of you to say I'm what's wrong with the world!
