Potential lawsuit? This mistake cannot go unpunished.
Luckily nothing happened. No lawsuit needed. Bring it to their attention and give them am opportunity to make it right or don't go back and spread the word.
Pretty scary though! Glad nothing catastrophic happened. This is why I prefer to do my own work on all my things, or someone I know and trust.

What shop are you taking it to? He wants to tack weld the nut to the sproket? To my knowledge the stock sproket nut has loctite on it, it's not welded. Maybe someone else can chime in on this.**update**
Took the bike back. The guy is gonna install a new nut and washer (again). He recommended just a tack weld on the nut to hold it on. Now when it was all taken apart the stock sprocket was welded on with a few tacks. So idk wtf to do.
^^^This! All you do is put a dent in the metal to prevent the nut from spinning. Welding...facepalm that guy shouldn't be anywhere near bikes and tools. Here is an example picture of what RC51 was referring to:There shouldn't be any loctite on there either. It is either a tabbed washer with tabs that get bent over to the flat sides of the nut, or a nut that gets peened at the end (the countershaft will have reliefs where the peen goes). A quick look at the manual shows that it is a tabbed washer.
Your mechanic sounds like a ****ing dumbass. I wouldn't be surprised if your nut and washer are sitting somewhere on his workbench.
