Tic Tac Day Spa and Salon is seeking summary judgment in litigation brought by Brenda Rogers, who sued the salon alleging her finger became infected following a manicure. 

As previously reported, the suit was filed March 8, 2012, in Jefferson County District Court.

The defendant filed the motion for summary judgment on July 11, arguing that there is no evidence to support the plaintiff’s claims, court papers say.

The lawsuit alleges that on Feb. 16, 2011, Rogers received a manicure at the Dowlen Road salon.

“Following the manicure, plaintiff’s left finger began to experience pain, redness and swelling which grew worse over time, spreading across her hand and up her arm,” the suit states.

“By February 18, 2011, the infection had become so (bad that it) necessitated an emergency room visit and subsequent hospitalization.”

The suit further alleges the defendant negligently failed to sanitize the items used in the manicure.

Rogers is suing for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment and lost wages, plus all court costs.

Beaumont attorney Adam Terrell of the Weller, Green, Toups & Terrell law firm represents her.

The defendants are represented by Germer PLLC attorney Collin Shellenberger of Beaumont.

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

Case No. E192-152
