Alleging a trip to the nail salon ended with an infection, Port Arthur resident Martina Bush filed suit against Vinh's Beauty & Nails.

The suit was filed Jan. 24 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the plaintiff's petition, Bush visited the Port Arthur nail salon sometime in January 2009 for a manicure.

"As a result of the treatment, Bush developed a severe infection in her right index finger," the suit states. "Vinh's failed to properly sanitize their nail tools between customers."

The suit alleges Vinh's had a duty to the public to sanitize its tools after use.

Bush is suing the company for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages.

Beaumont attorney Jonathan Juhan represents her.

Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, has been assigned to the case.

Case No. E189-245
