There is nothing you can do. If itís other claw is still intact and working fine, it will use that one. Just FYI, if the scorpion is still a baby, the claw might have a chance to regenerate with subsequent molts.
Just make sure it is not bleeding. If it is, take a small piece of toilet paper and put it on there to absorb the blood. Do you know what happened to cause the injury to the claw?

It is possible they got into a fight, thus causing the injury to the claw. Make sure you have at least two hides for each scorpion and plenty of food to go around. Generally they will get along but disagreements do break out from time to time, especially over food and hides.

If theyíre sharing one hide and are cozy with each other, thatís a good sign. Other than just keeping them warm and humid, all sounds well.
