EDWARDSVILLE – A customer at a nail salon is suing over injuries she allegedly received during a pedicure.
Judy Broshaw filed the suit April 14 in Madison County Circuit Court against My Nails Salon and Fion Chan, the salon manager.
On Aug. 19, 2014, an employee of My Nails Salon placed a blue liquid on the plaintiff's feet during a pedicure. The liquid allegedly caused immediate irritation to the plaintiff's skin, according to the complaint.
Broshaw alleges the defendants negligently failed to properly sanitize all pedicure-related items, applied the liquid directly to the client's feet when it should have been diluted, failed to perform the pedicure in accordance with written policies and procedures and failed to perform it in accordance with industry standards.
Also, the plaintiff alleges Chan failed to properly train and supervise the employee who performed the pedicure.
As a result, Broshaw claims she experienced burns to both feet, permanent disfigurement, pain and suffering and medical expenses.
The plaintiff seeks judgment in excess of $50,000 plus court costs. She is represented by Gregory S. Motil of Williamson, Webster, Falb & Glisson in Alton.
