Yasmin Osorio filed suit against The Medve Group Inc., The Terraces Apartments and their insurer in the 24th Judicial District Court on March. 14.

The defendant is accused of allowing an unsafe condition to exist, failing to properly maintain and warn of the danger, failing to timely inspect the walkway, creating or maintaining a defective condition and allowing a dangerous condition to exist after proper notice.

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

Osorio is represented by attorney Pierre F. Gaudin of Gretna.

The case has been assigned to Division N Judge Stephen D. Enright Jr.

Case no. 724-878.
