Today is April 13th I currently went to the nail salon on April 2nd to get my nails done for my birthday I started to notice that my toe was hurting and I was trying to figure out why when I had on soft shoes referring side then I realized the lady was she was digging too hard but I didn't think nothing of it because I was getting my toes done then I looked at my toe two days later and I noticed that there was pus in it I went to the doctor and my doctor told me at an ingrown toenail I went to a podiatrist and I was told that I had an infection in my toe so I have to take antibiotics for a whole week for four times a day to get the infection out and that Friday April 19th I will have a procedure to take out the toe nail ...I haven't been able to fulfill all my work duties at work because I work in a school and I had to wear flip flops instead of a sneaker
I've changed the category from general practice to personal injury.
You should consult with a personal injury on Avvo. As part of that process they will ascertain whether the nail salon was negligent, whether the nail salon's negligence was the proximate cause of your injuries and whether the injury sustained is a permanent injury for which the law permits compensation.
Yes! Take photos of the injury as soon as possible. And, collect your medical records from your doctors, including your procedure report from the podiatrist.
Contact a personal injury lawyer ASAP. Your lawyer will file the appropriate claims with the insurance carrier for the nail salon.
Also, save any receipts proving that you were at the nail salon on the date of incident and save all out of pocket receipts so that you can maybe be reimbursed later by the insurance company.
Do not delay! The sooner the better.
We get a lot of salon questions on this site. Use the Avvo "Find a lawyer" feature to contact a lawyer near you who handles these kinds of cases.
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals. Attorneys who claim their profiles and provide Avvo with more information tend to have a higher rating than those who do not.What determines Avvo Rating?Experience & background
