A Santa Clara woman filed a personal injury lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court for personal injury against Dynasty Nails, a salon located on Boquet Canyon Road. The woman, Sonia Algara claimed that the substandard pedicure causes her toe infection, which was later amputated to stop the spreading of infection. She said that on March 15, 2015, she went to the Salon and paid $20 for a pedicure as stated in the Los Angeles CBS news report.
Reckless negligence of a Parlor Operator Resulting to the Amputation of the Toe.
The parlor attendant recklessly caused a laceration on the skin of the complainant with a pair of scissors. The laceration was in between her fourth and fifth toe of her left foot. The cut causes her a great pain and got infected. Later, the infection worsens despite of a proper medical treatment by a licensed doctor.
The woman’s lawyer also said that his client is diabetic and had informed the salon attendant as such. Her doctor told her that her infected toe should be amputated as early as possible since the infection is spreading so fast. It is the only remaining medical option to save her entire leg.
Since her toe was cut, her balance was affected somewhat that she could not walk upstairs as normally she does. Further, she stated that she could not wear a certain kind of shoes anymore. According to his complaint, she seeks an unspecified amount of damages against the saloon for medical reimbursement and damages for her pain, sufferings including her emotional distress.
