An area resident has filed a lawsuit alleging she was injured while traversing “unreasonably dangerous” stairs two years ago.

Regina Badgett filed suit against RCR Properties and Randy and Betty Rochelle on Jan. 9 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, on Jan. 16, 2011, Badgett was at the defendants’ Beaumont premises when she was harmed by the unreasonably dangerous condition of the exterior stairs to the apartment complex, causing her to fall.

The suit alleges the defendants were negligent in not preventing the injury by failing to inspect and maintain the premises.

The plaintiff is suing for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment and lost wages.

Beaumont attorney Chris Portner of Portner Bond represents her.

Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. E193-809
