Skechers Lawsuits

In the last few years there has been an increase in skechers lawsuits in the United States. There are many reasons behind this increase. First, many people are now walking on hard surfaces that weren’t available to them before. Second, some of the older and less expensive versions of sketches are no longer being produced. Third, new models are more ergonomically friendly and comfortable.

Skelers have caused serious injuries, falls and broken bones doctors across the country warn against while new class action lawsuits filed by national health care and safety lawyers are also filing skechers lawsuits.

The innovative design of Shape-ups shoes come with added padding and a unique rounded sole that make walking and running with these shoes more uncomfortable. The sheer shape of the sole creates stability and requires that the wearer make more frequent adjustments in his or her walking and sitting habits.

The majority of the western district cases filed in 2021 alleged that the manufacturers of Shape-ups toning shoes and other similar brands were negligent and caused serious injuries to thousands of people between January 2021 and March 2021.

Some of the plaintiffs were prescribed drugs that made their condition worse and some even lost their lives. A representative from the western district’s office pursued one of the most prolific complainers and received a two-year sentence for securities fraud.

The manufacturer of the original Shape-ups, Skechers Inc., vigorously fought back, denying any liability and insisting that their shoes provided an important benefit.

After a two-week trial in March 2021, a jury found for the plaintiffs and awarded them a major settlement. According to the complaint, a company representative met a woman in a restaurant in January 2021 and put her at ease by telling her that the shoes provided an “intrusive” stability device that helped alleviate her pain. However, the woman began to have a backache the next day, as well as severe pain around her neck, shoulder, and lower back. This claim was dismissed by the jury because the stability device was not a product that caused any injury or discomfort.

Skechers sued the woman for negligence and asked for compensation for the pain and suffering she experienced as a result of the injury.

On April 8, the court granted summary judgment in favor of the defendant. The judge found that the claims were not valid because the claims were barred by the statute and the products were not defective per se. Although the plaintiff’s attorney could not admit that the products caused her injuries, the court ruled that the lawsuit was eligible for Class C damages. The court awarded her a total amount of approximately $2.75 million. Because this is a very large judgment, attorneys normally charge a contingency fee when handling Class C lawsuits.

As a company, it is vital that they maintain a positive public image.

Skechers Shoes was one of the hottest selling brands in their industry so plaintiffs’ attorneys typically find themselves out of luck when pursuing such cases. However, consumers need to be aware that there are legal avenues that will allow them to seek justice in situations where they have been injured through the negligence of a company. If you have been injured through the negligence of a Skechers shoe manufacturer, it is imperative that you contact an experienced attorney with experience in litigating these types of lawsuits to discuss your case.
