The suit claims on Feb. 26, 2011, Neff was ascending the outside stairs at 119 Pine St., and claims a brick from the step broke free causing her to lose her balance and twist her body and her left foot collapsing under her. This caused her to fall and suffer injuries to her hip and left foot. She claims she was a business invitee as the Ahnes are engaged in the business of providing rental property at theaddress.
She charges them with failing to make the premises safe and seeks damages in excess of $50,000.
