Skechers Lawsuit Filed On Behalf of Ohio Woman, Alleging That the Defective Design of Shape-Ups Caused the Plaintiff’s Serious Knee Injuries, by Wright & Schulte
Date:3/1/2013

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) March 01, 2013

The product liability attorneys at Wright & Schulte, LLC have filed a Skechers lawsuit on behalf of a woman from Fairborn, Ohio. Court documents for this case (Case No. 3:13-cv-00164-TBR) allege that the plaintiff regularly wore Skechers toning shoes and that the inherently defective design of these shoes caused her to tear the meniscus in her right knee. These Skechers injuries required the plaintiff to undergo surgery and long-term physical therapy. This Skechers injury Lawsuit, which was filed on January 28, 2013 and is part of MDL 2308, will be litigated in the U.S. District Court of the Western District of Kentucky, Louisville Division. As with previous Wright & Schulte Skechers Shape-Ups lawsuits, the defendants in this case have been named as Skechers, U.S.A., Inc., Skechers, U.S.A., Inc., II and Skechers Fitness Group.

Skechers Lawsuit Due To Serious Knee Injury
The complaint in this case (Case No. 3:13-cv-00164-TBR) alleges that the plaintiff bought Skechers Shape-Ups in June 2010 and soon began wearing these toning shoes while performing her daily activities. Nearly two years later, the plaintiff was walking in her Skechers toning shoes when her right foot turned inwards, causing her right ankle to painfully buckle; this, in turn, caused her fall down.

Upon seeking medical attention, the plaintiff was informed that she had torn the meniscus in her right knee. Initially, the plaintiff tried to repair her torn meniscus with minimally invasive treatments. However, the plaintiff ultimately had to undergo surgery and extensive physical therapy to try to repair her serious knee injury. To date, the plaintiff allegedly is still experiencing intense knee pain and is unable to perform her daily activities as she could prior to sustaining her serious Skechers knee injury.

The $40 Million Skechers FTC Settlement Due To Skechers Claims
According to court documents, Skechers indicated to consumers, including the plaintiff, that Shape-Ups were a revolutionary exercise technology, not just a simple sneaker. Court documents also specifically cite Skechers’ own statements in its product literature; these statements imply that, if any injury was thought to be caused by the shoes’ unstable design, it must have actually been caused by the consumer’s misuse of the shoes.

However, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) found that the “independent” study done by chiropractor Dr. Steven Gautreau did not produce the results claimed in the ads for Shape-ups. Further, it was discovered that Skechers had not only paid Dr. Gautreau to conduct the study but he was also married to a Skechers marketing executive.

Additionally, an independent study overseen by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) at the University of Wisconsin 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.” (http://www.acefitness.org/getfit/studies/toningshoes072010.pdf)
