While Scarborough is readjusting and only just starting to walk again, the nail salon's insurance company has been told they do not have to pay compensation for the damages.

In spite of the fact that the summary judgement ruled the nail salon was responsible for Scarborough's injuries, it said the insurance company does not have to pay up because the salon did not have professional liability insurance—i.e. insurance that covers the actions of its employers. This includes the actions of a nail technician using scissors.

In light of this, Scarborough's legal advisors recommended she not pursue the salon for compensation.

According to the nonprofit Amputee Coalition, there are close to 2 million people in the U.S. living with an amputated limb and around 185,000 amputations take place each year. The main cause of amputation is vascular disease like diabetes and peripheral arterial disease (54 percent), trauma (45 percent) and cancer (under 2 percent).

A lack of blood supply to the extremities like Scarborough describes can lead to amputation because a lack of oxygen and nutrients can cause the tissue to die, leading to infection and gangrene.

Gangrene can be particularly dangerous because it can spread to other parts of the body—and if left untreated, can be life-threatening. Gangrene is what caused Marie Trainer from Stark County, Ohio, to have her arms and legs amputated after she contracted a bacterial infection from her dog's lick.
