Save all of the evidence and consult a personal injury lawyer to see if you have a viable claim. Take photos of your injuries.


I am very sorry to hear about your injuryies. Yes, you should contact a personal injury attorney in or around Lake Charles. Take the pictures and doctors reports with you when you seen the attorney so that he/she can review them. Most personal injury attorneys are willing to provide a free consultation so you should take advantage of that. Best of luck.

Oftentimes the question does not include significant and important facts and timelines that, if known, could significantly change the reply and make it unsuitable. I am not your attorney until retained by a written retainer agreement signed by both of us. See also terms and conditions item 9, incorporated as if it was reprinted here.

See a lawyer asap. You have a case.


Nail salons typically have insurance. Retain a local personal injury lawyer to investigate a claim against them. I'm glad to hear that your finger is healing, and perhaps some ice will resolve the puffiness.
