BATON ROUGE - A Baton Rouge woman is suing a Baton Rouge apartment complex after she was allegedly injured on its premises.

Adelle Robinson filed suit against Creekstone/Terrace Land Company Development, LLC, doing business as Bristol Place, AMG Bristol, LLC, A.C. Lewis Management, LLC, Arthus C. Lewis, III and its insurers in the 19th Judicial Court on Nov 28.

Robinson claims she was walking on Bristol Place Apartment's premises on Nov. 24, 2011, located at 5960 Siegen Lane, when she fell due to a dangerous condition on the lawn. She asserts the fall caused injuries to her neck and back.

The defendants are accused of failing to take measures to remedy the dangerous condition, failing to provide proper maintenance and keep the premises in a safe condition, failing to make timely inspection of the area, failing to properly train and/or supervise their employees as to methods of maintenance, repair and inspection to insure safe passage for their tenants and guests and allowing a dangerous condition to exist for an unreasonable length of time. They are also accused of breach of contract and negligence.

An unspecified amount in damages is sought for pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, medical expenses, disability and economic loss.

The plaintiff is represented by Richard P. Voorhies III and James Flinn of The Voorhies Law Firm in New Orleans.

The case has been assigned to Division D Judge Janice Clark.

Case no. 617224.
