GRETNA – A tenant who claims she was injured when the floor of her apartment collapsed beneath her is suing.

Zaneta Williams filed suit against Scottsdale Insurance Company and Green Oaks Associates Ltd. in the 24th Judicial District Court on Sept. 10.

The defendant is accused of deterioration and weakening of the bathroom floor, negligent repair of bathroom floor, failing to have proper flooring and other defects.

An unspecified amount in damages is sought for medical treatment, pain and suffering, mental anguish, lost wages and loss of earning capacity.

Williams is represented by Dominick F. Impastato III of New Orleans-based Frischhertz, Poulliard, Frischhertz & Impastato LLC.

The case has been assigned to Division I Judge Nancy A. Miller.
