Skechers Injury Lawsuit Filed on Behalf of an Alabama Man Who Suffered Severe Leg Fracture Allegedly Due to Skechers Shape-Ups Toning Shoes, by Wright & Schulte LLC

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) February 17, 2013

The products liability law firm of Wright & Schulte LLC has filed a Skechers injury lawsuit on behalf of a Mobile, Alabama man who suffered a serious fracture of his right ankle and leg allegedly due to Skechers Shape-Ups toning shoes. The Skechers shape-ups injury lawsuit, which was filed on January 28, 2013, in the Skechers Toning Shoe Product Liability Litigation (MDL 2308) currently underway in U.S. District Court, Western District of Kentucky, names Skechers USA Inc., Skechers USA Inc., II, and Skechers Fitness Group as defendants. (Case 3:13-cv-00136-TBR)

This Skechers fracture lawsuit joins numerous others filed by Wright & Schulte LLC against Skechers in the Multidistrict Litigation under U.S. District Court Judge Thomas B. Russell. Richard W. Schulte, a partner with Wright & Schulte LLC is a member of the Skechers Plaintiff’s Steering Committee for the MDL. The law firm encourages any consumer who believes they have been injured by use of Skechers Shape-Ups toning shoes to speak with one of the experienced products liability attorneys at Wright & Schulte LLC by calling 1-800-399-0795 or by visiting

According to the Skechers injury complaint, the plaintiff purchased Skechers toning shoes online from his home in Mobile, Alabama on May 20, 2011. After two weeks, the plaintiff began wearing the Skechers Shape-Ups toning shoes during his daily activities. On June 9, 2012, the plaintiff was walking in his driveway when the Skechers Shape-Ups suddenly turned inward, causing the plaintiff’s right ankle to collapse. The plaintiff was taken by ambulance to a local hospital where he was diagnosed with a severe fracture to his right ankle and leg. The plaintiff immediately underwent surgery to repair the fracture.

Because of the severity of the fractures, the plaintiff was hospitalized for days, and was confined to a wheelchair for three months. He will also be forced to undergo additional surgeries in the future. The Skechers injury lawsuit claims that the plaintiff’s life has been drastically altered because of Skechers Shape-Ups toning shoes and that he is unable to perform daily tasks and lives in constant pain.

The Skechers injury lawsuit alleges that the manufacturers of Skechers Shape-Ups toning shoes knew the footwear produced a substantial risk of causing chronic injuries and inducing falls because the unstable rocker-bottom sole of the shoe alters gait mechanics and creates instability. The Skechers fracture complaint references a study conducted by the American Council on Exercise (ACE), which found that toning shoes showed no ‘statistically significant increases in either exercise response or muscle activation’. The study concluded 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,” the lawsuit states.
