Bacterial Infection Settlement — $40,000 Award

Key Details

  • Case Type: Bacterial infection
  • Location: Portland, OR
  • Injuries: Bacterial infection in legs due to unsanitary salon conditions

Case Description

Our client scheduled a pedicure at a well-known salon in Portland. Upon arrival, our client was upsold a leg wax prior to the pedicure. She later developed a bacterial infection in her legs due to the unsanitary conditions in the salon.

Legal Strategy

At Newlin Law Offices, we believe in advocating for our clients' rights, especially in cases of personal injury caused by negligence. In this instance, our diligent research revealed that pedicure recipients should be instructed not to shave or wax their legs within 24 hours of the treatment. Armed with this information, we presented our case to the salon.


The salon acknowledged our position and agreed to a settlement of $40,000 for our client. This compensation was sufficient to cover our client's medical expenses and underscores the importance of maintaining sanitary conditions in beauty and wellness establishments.

Disclaimer: Please note that past results do not guarantee future outcomes, and each case is unique. Our commitment to our clients' best interests remains unwavering.
