$800,000 Settlement For Woman Who Suffered Thermal Burns At A Nail Salon
The Baer Law Firm obtained an $800,000 settlement for a woman who suffered thermal burns following a pedicure at a nail salon she often visited. The burns were caused by a combination of the chemicals used during the pedicure and the heat from the water and hot towels applied following the procedure. What happened to our client exemplifies the dangers of using scrub-based applications improperly as well as the heightened risk of these chemical treatments to diabetic patients. After multiple skin grafts and many sessions of hyperbaric chamber oxygen therapy, the wounds have fortunately healed but not without significant scarring to our client’s lower leg.
