Columbus, OH (PRWEB) January 26, 2013
The experienced product liability attorneys at Wright & Schulte, LLC have filed a Skechers Lawsuit on behalf of an Arizona man alleging that the rocker bottom design of the Skechers Shape-ups caused him to fall and sustain a midclavicular three-part fracture with mild angulation. Further, the Skechers Shape-Ups Lawsuit also states that the plaintiff had to undergo surgery for the fracture, which required a plate and screws to repair.
This case (Case No. 3:12-cv-00671-TBR), filed on October 16, 2012, named Skechers, U.S.A., Inc., Skechers, U.S.A., Inc., II and Skechers Fitness Group as defendants. The Skechers corporations are based in Manhattan Beach, California. As with previous Skechers lawsuits, this case has been filed in the U.S. District Court of the Western District of Kentucky, Louisville Division (MDL 2308).

According to court documents, the plaintiff purchased a pair of Skechers Shape-ups from a local department store. After wearing the shoes for 25 to 45 minutes a day for two weeks, the plaintiff began wearing the shoes on a daily basis. In December of 2011, the plaintiff was walking on a flat surface when his left Skechers Shape-up toning shoe suddenly rolled forward and caused him to fall. The plaintiff was taken by ambulance to the local hospital where an x-ray revealed his fractured clavicle. The plaintiff had to undergo surgery to repair the fracture.
Additionally, court documents allege the rocker bottom design of Skechers Shape-ups contributed to the injuries sustained by the plaintiff. The plaintiff also alleges that the Skechers Corporation failed to warn the public about the possibility of injuries associated with the toning shoes. Further, the Skechers lawsuit alleges that the toning, strengthening, and heath representations made by the Skechers Corporation were false as proven by an independent study conducted by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) at the University of Wisconsin. The study analyzed whether toning shoes have health benefits greater than standard sneakers and 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)
