Skechers Lawsuit Filed By Wright & Schulte on Behalf of an Alabama Woman Alleges Serious Ankle Injury Was Caused by The Design of Skechers Shape-Ups

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) March 23, 2013

Wright & Schulte, LLC, and experienced product liability law firm, filed a Skechers Injury lawsuit on behalf of a woman from Mobile, Alabama. This case (Case No. 3:13-cv-00143-TBR) alleges that the plaintiff sustained a serious tear to a major tendon in her right ankle after the unstable design of Shape-Ups caused her to fall down. To treat her painful Skechers ankle injury, the plaintiff had to undergo a complicated surgery, wear a boot and then attend months of physical therapy.

As part of MDL 2308, this Skechers torn tendon lawsuit will be heard in the U.S. District Court of the Western District of Kentucky, Louisville Division. The defendants in this case have been identified as Skechers, U.S.A., Inc., Skechers, U.S.A., Inc., II and Skechers Fitness Group.

Severe Ankle Injury Allegedly Caused By Unstable Shape-Ups

Court documents explain that the plaintiff purchased her Skechers Shape-Ups in early 2011 and wore these toning shoes for extended periods of time on a daily basis. In May 2011, the plaintiff was walking on a flat surface when the rocker bottom on her right toning shoe suddenly rolled forwards and caused her to fall in crippling pain. Upon seeking medical care, the plaintiff was informed that she had severely torn a major tendon in her right ankle (her posterior tibia tendon) and that her only treatment option was surgery.

The complicated surgery involved reconstructing the torn tendon, stretching the Achilles tendon and transferring tendon tissues to repair the extensive ankle damage. Following surgery, the plaintiff had to wear a boot on her right foot for months. Subsequently, she underwent extensive physical therapy to try to treat her serious Skechers ankle injuries.

Skechers Lawsuits Continue to Rise Even after $40 Million Settlement with FTC

In May 2012, Skechers was ordered to pay the Federal Trade Commission $40 million when the court ruled that Skechers had acted negligently in marketing Shape-Ups. Specifically, the court found that Skechers had overstated the health benefits of Shape-Ups, failed to alert consumers about the possible risks associated with the unstable rocker-bottom design of the shoe and failed to perform adequate safety testing on these shoes. [ Skechers misrepresentation of Shape-Ups toning shoes continues today, according to court documents, as Skechers’ website fails to provide any warnings to consumers about the increased risk of falling and sustaining serious injuries when wearing Shape-Ups.
