Injury Claims against Skechers Toning Shoes Settled or In Process, Says Attorney Robert Jenner
Date:7/22/2013

Baltimore, Maryland (PRWEB) July 22, 2013

Injury claims against Skechers related to its original toning shoe products are moving forward and some settlements have been reached and checks disbursed, announced attorney Robert Jenner, partner with Janet, Jenner & Suggs, LLC.

The JJ&S firm is handling about 400 injury claims against the shoe company, ranging from torn ligaments, to hip fractures, to spinal injury and paralysis, Jenner said. Jenner is co-lead counsel for all plaintiffs who filed federal court lawsuits against Skechers, USA, Inc., for injuries allegedly caused by the company’s “rocker bottom” Skechers Shape-Up toning shoes. The case is in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Kentucky in Louisville (MDL No. 2308).

“The first round of settlement checks is going out, a second group is in the settlement process, and a third group is awaiting mediation” he said.

Claimants were about equal between men and women, and range in age from pre-teen to seniors, he said. “What they all had in common was pain, the misery of not being able to walk easily or at all, and the fact that these injures often take months or years to heal and may cause permanent disability,” he said.

Not FTC Rebate

Injury clam settlement checks should not be confused with rebate checks the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced July 11, 2013, it is mailing to about 509,000 purchasers of Skechers Shape-ups and other so-called toning shoes as part of a global settlement announced May 12, 2012, to resolve allegations of deceptive advertising, he said.

“The injury settlement checks will be considerably larger than the FTC rebate checks, since they represent compensation for medical expenses, missed wages
