PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Palm Beach County woman claims she was critically injured as a result of a pedicure. Now, she’s suing for more than $30,000.

Gail Duane claims that TD Nail Spa is to blame for an allegedly serious medical condition that developed after she received a pedicure and foot bath. According to the lawsuit:

“On May 20, 2021, the Plaintiff, Gail Duane, was a customer of the Defendant, TD Nail Spa, Inc., and received a pedicure and foot bath. On that date, the technician performed a salt scrub exfoliation followed by wrapping both legs of the Plaintiff in moist hot towels followed by the application of collagen products.”

“Subsequent to the May 20, 2021 visit, Duane developed red blotches that evolved into pustules on both legs. Thereafter, they advanced and became blisters. In June she began treatment for the infection that had arisen. The infection progressed and Duane required hospitalizations, antibiotic therapy, surgical debridement and resulting cellulitis.”

The suit claims that TD Nail Spa failed to conduct an appropriate medical history, failed to use care during Duane’s treatment, and violated State of Florida regulations regarding sterilization, cleansing, and disinfection.

Attorney Christopher Larmoyeux of Larmoyeux and Bone represents Duane in the suit just filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court.
