A Philadelphia couple is suing a Newtown couple after a woman fell in a grassy area while attempting to get into her son's car.
Mary and Eugene Lewis filed a lawsuit Feb. 6 in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas against Roy and Margaretta Neitheimer, citing negligence.
The lawsuit states Mary Lewis was leaving property at 6518 N. Mascher St., Philadelphia, on March 10, 2012, when she stepped off the sidewalk onto the berm to get into the vehicle. She fell in an area of sunken ground and sustained severe and permanent injuries, the complaint said. The Neitheimers own the property, according to the complaint.
The plaintiffs are seeking in excess of $50,000 in damages. They are being represented by Michael Mednick.
