A Highland woman is suing the property manager of her apartment complex after she was allegedly hurt by another resident.
Michelle Waeckerle filed a lawsuit Feb. 4 in Madison County Circuit Court against Terra Properties.
Waeckerle says she has lived at the Suppinger Lane apartment complex since December 2009. Waeckerle alleges she was attacked by another resident, Wendy Masterson, in May 2012.
According to the complaint, Waeckerle and other residents had complained to Terra Properties several times about Masterson's verbal and physical abuse.
Those complaints were allegedly never addressed by the property management company.
Waeckerle accuses Terra Properties of negligence for allegedly allowing a dangerous situation to continue by failing to evict Masterson.
She asks for more than $50,000 in damages for medical bills, lost wages and court fees.
Attorney Jarrod P. Beasley of Belleville represents Waeckerle.
