Skechers Injury Lawsuit Filed on Behalf of a Mississippi Woman Who Suffered a Serious Knee Injury Allegedly Due to Shape-Ups’ Defective Design, by Wright & Schulte LLC

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) March 22, 2013

Wright & Schulte LLC, an experienced product liability law firm, has filed a Skechers torn ACL lawsuit on behalf of a woman from Columbia, Mississippi. This case (Case No. 3:13-cv-00158-TBR) alleges that the fundamentally unstable and dangerous design of Shape-Ups caused the plaintiff to fall down, break one of her fingers and tear the ACL in one of her knees. To date, the plaintiff is still suffering from intense knee pain despite the fact she has undergone surgery to try to treat her torn ACL. The Skechers injury lawsuit was filed on January 28, 2013, in the federal Skechers Toning Shoes Products Liability Litigation (MDL 2308), now underway in U.S. District Court, Western District of Kentucky. Richard W. Schulte, a partner with the firm of Wright & Schulte LLC, is serving on the Plaintiffs Steering Committee in the federal Skechers MDL Litigation.

Skechers Injury Lawsuit

The complaint states that the plaintiff bought Skechers Shape-Ups in January 2011 and wore them regularly while performing her daily activities. Within a month of wearing Shape-Ups, the plaintiff was walking when the rocker-bottom on her shoes allegedly caused her to roll forward, lose her balance and fall down. The next day, the plaintiff sought medical care, as she had been experiencing intense pain in one of her fingers and in one of her knees. After undergoing various diagnostic tests, doctors determined that the plaintiff had broken her index finger and had torn the ACL in one of her knees. Surgery was required to treat the serious Skechers knee injury, which is still a source of pain for the plaintiff.

Skechers Shape-Ups deceptive claims?

Court documents go on to lay out evidence that “the health risks of Skechers outweigh the absence of any benefit provided to [individuals who wear Shape-Ups].” In fact, the complaint alleges that the unstable and defective rocker-bottom design of Skechers Shape-Ups caused the plaintiff's injuries. The complaint also alleges that the Skechers acted negligently by purposely misrepresented the health benefits of these toning shoes [ and that Skechers was negligent in its failure to conduct safety testing on Shape-Ups even after consumers reported alleged Skechers injuries to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). In fact, the CPSC has received more reports of alleged Skechers toning shoe injuries than injury reports for any other product in its database (as of May 2011).

In May 2012, Skechers was ordered to pay the Federal Trade Commission $40 million to settle FTC charges after the courts agreed with such findings of Skechers deceptive claims by ruling that Skechers had overstated the health benefits of Shape-Ups.
