Skechers Lawsuit Filed on Behalf of an Indiana Woman, Alleging Defective Design of Shape-Ups Caused Leg Fracture, by Wright & Schulte
Date:3/8/2013

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) March 08, 2013

Wright & Schulte LLC, an experienced product liability law firm, has filed a Skechers lawsuit Case No. 3:13-cv-00156-TBR) on behalf of a woman from Colombia who alleges that the plaintiff fell and broke her right calf bone due to the inherently unstable design of Skechers Shape-Ups. The plaintiff had to wear a cast for weeks and then undergo months of physical therapy, allegedly due to the Skechers leg injury. 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, is serving on the Plaintiffs Steering Committee in the federal Skechers MDL Litigation.

Leg Fracture Allegedly Caused By Unstable Skechers Toning Shoes

According to court documents, the plaintiff bought the Skechers Shape-Ups in October 2011 and wore them daily. Within two months of wearing her Shape-Ups, the plaintiff was on a flat surface when her right toning shoe turned inwards causing the plaintiff to fall. After enduring about a week of persisting and intense pain in her right calf region, the plaintiff sought medical treatment, at which time she was informed that she had fractured her right fibula (or calf bone). As treatment, the plaintiff wore a cast on her lower right leg for weeks and then attended extensive physical therapy.

Alleged Skechers Negligence

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 cites an independent study overseen by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) at the University of Wisconsin. This study 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 ) Additionally, the complaint points out that the CPSC has received more reports of 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 negligence by ruling that Skechers had overstated the health benefits of Shape-Ups.
