Woman sues nail salon, claims pedicure caused leg amputation

A woman has sued a Portland, Oregon, nail salon, contending that a pedicure resulted in the amputation of her right leg.

Madhu Kumar alleges in her complaint that a Nails Trap pedicurist tried to shave calluses off her feet in 2012, resulting in the negligent laceration of “the media distal tip of (Kumar’s) right hallux,” otherwise known as the big toe, the Oregonian reports.

Profuse bleeding and gangrene to her toe resulted, eventually resulting in the amputation of her toe and leg, Kumar alleges.
