Four Skechers Lawsuits Filed by Wright & Schulte LLC on Behalf of Consumers Who Suffered Serious Knee Injuries Allegedly Due to Dangerous Design of Skechers Shape-Ups

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) June 08, 2013

Wright & Schulte’s product liability attorneys have filed four Skechers lawsuits on behalf of consumers throughout the U.S. who have suffered serious, painful knee injuries allegedly caused by the allegedly dangerous design of Shape-Ups toning shoes. These Skechers Injury Lawsuits, which are all part of MDL 2308 and were filed on April 29, 2013, are being litigated in the U.S. District Court of the Western District of Kentucky, Louisville Division.

Wright & Schulte, LLC specializes in defending the rights of those who have suffered severe injuries after using products with defective or dangerous designs. Our experienced Skechers attorneys have a proven track record of successfully going up against large corporations. We welcome individuals who think that they have been injured due to these toning shoes to speak to our lawyers about potentially filing a Skechers lawsuit by visiting or by calling 1-800-399-0795.

The Skechers Lawsuits contend the injuries where caused by Skechers Toning Shoes’ allegedly defective design. The complaints for all of these Skechers lawsuits allege that the plaintiffs were wearing their toning shoes when the unstable rocker bottom of the shoe caused them to lose their balance, fall and seriously injure at least one of their knees.

Specifically, the four plaintiffs in these Skechers lawsuits include a Texas woman who tore the meniscus in her right knee (case no. 3:13-cv-00445-TBR); a Virginia woman (case no. 3:13-cv-00449-TBR) and a Tennessee woman (case no. 3:13-cv-00451-TBR) who tore the meniscus in their left knees; and an Illinois man who suffered a knee fracture (case no. 3:13-cv-00448-TBR). While all of these plaintiffs had to undergo at least one knee surgery, they all additionally have had to attend physical therapy and are currently living with knee impairments allegedly due to their Skechers injuries.

Skechers Pays $40 Million for Misleading Shape-Ups Ads
The recently filed Skechers knee injury lawsuits allege that, despite the fact that Shape-Ups ads claimed that these toning shoes had a number of health benefits, such as helping wearers get in shape without going to the gym, these claims are unfounded and have not been proven by scientific research.

In fact, an independent study conducted by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) and first published in June 2010 found that, “there is simply no evidence to support the claims that these shoes will help wearers exercise more intensely, burn more calories or improve muscle strength and tone.” [ June 2010]

Skechers misrepresentation of Shape-Ups health benefits has been the basis of thousands of lawsuits filed against the company and has cost Skechers millions in settlement awards to consumers. In fact, in May 2013, a federal judge approved a Skechers $40 million settlement in a class-action Skechers lawsuit based on hundreds of thousands of consumer claims that Skechers intentionally misrepresented the health benefits of Shape-Ups in its ads. As part of this ruling, the court also found that Skechers is no longer allowed to run ads for its toning shoes.
