Columbus, OH (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
A Skechers lawsuit has been filed on behalf of a Pennsylvania woman by the Product Liability Lawyers at Wright & Schulte LLC. This case (Case No. 3:13-cv-00160-TBR) alleges that the unstable and defective design of these Skechers Shape-Ups toning shoes caused the plaintiff to fall from a six-foot high porch and sustain multiple fractures in her right arm. Although the plaintiff has undergone a number of surgeries to try to treat these Skechers injuries, she is still allegedly experiencing severe pain from them on a daily basis.
The Skechers Shape-Ups Lawsuit was filed on January 28, 2013 and is part of MDL 2308. It will be litigated in the U.S. District Court of the Western District of Kentucky, Louisville Division.

Skechers Lawsuit Due To Serious Injuries
According to court documents, the plaintiff bought Skechers Shape-Ups in August 2011 and soon began wearing these toning shoes daily for extended periods of time. Within a few months of this purchase, the plaintiff was wearing Shape-Ups while standing on her back porch when a door bumped into her; unable to find her balance on the unstable rocker-bottoms of these toning shoes, the plaintiff fell off the six-foot high porch. The fall caused the plaintiff to sustain more than three fractures in her right arm.
In addition to undergoing emergency surgery immediately following her fall, the plaintiff has since undergone a number of other surgeries to try to repair her serious and painful Skechers injuries. To date, the plaintiff is allegedly still experiencing intense arm pain on a daily basis and is unable to perform her daily activities as she could prior to sustaining her serious Skechers arm injury.
The $40 Million Skechers FTC Settlement Due To Skechers Claims
According to the complaint, the unstable and defective rocker-bottom design of Skechers Shape-Ups caused the plaintiff's injuries. The plaintiff is alleging that the Skechers corporation not only intentionally misrepresented the supposed health benefits of these toning shoes [http://www.nbcnews.com/business/skechers-pay-40-million-over-deceptive-ads-775405 but that the company also failed to perform essential safety testing on Shape-Ups even after consumers filed reports of Skechers injuries with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). In fact, the CPSC database has more reports of injuries associated with Skechers toning shoes than it has with any other product in its database (as of May 2011).
