$850,000 Settlement : Nail Salon Held Accountable for Not Cleaning Equipment

After getting a pedicure at a nail salon in a shopping mall in the Hudson Valley, our client developed a bacterial infection requiring the surgical removal of a portion of her foot. While we knew it was from the nail salon, we had to prove it.  We hired an instructor from a beauty school who regularly lectures on what nail salons must do to comply with the NYS Appearance Enhancement Law.  She told us how the nail salon violated several sections of the law.   We also hired a bio-chemist who analyzed the type of bacteria and confirmed it was consistent with the type of bacteria that is found in dirty nail salon equipment.  While the nail salon lawyer attempted to point to other causes, our client was satisfied with the $850,000 settlement offer from the insurance company.
