He wanted to make a simple one pedicure ma lost his leg because of Severe infection. Clara Shelman had turned to a beauty salon in Tampa, Florida, US, for a pedicure, but this simple treatment became an ordeal. After the session, the woman began to feel so uncomfortable that her leg was amputated.
It all started with an infection of the big toe which unfortunately could only be eradicated with amputation of the limb that occurred below the knee. The woman filed a complaint and over the years continued investigations and expert reports that eventually proved her right. In fact, the beauty salon was found to be in a state of failure, as some instruments had not been properly washed and sterilized. The use of a non-sterile pedicure instrument caused an infection that proved to be particularly aggressive for Clara.
The worsening of the woman’s condition due to a previous illness made the treatment of the inflammatory condition more difficult. At the end of the trial, the salon will pay the woman $1.7 million.
