Skechers Shape-ups Brain Injuries
More so than any orthopedic injury, brain damage can result in widespread, permanent physical and mental impairments, potentially compromising just about any function of the human body and even changing personality and social skills. Brain injuries can happen without any evidence of physical trauma or outward injury, which can make they difficult to diagnosis and evaluate. The most common types of traumatic brain injury are:
- Diffuse axonal injury.
Falls are the Leading Cause of Brain Injury
According to the Centers for Disease Control and prevention (CDC), falls are the leading cause of traumatic brain injury in the United States, followed by motor vehicle accidents. Older adults and those with difficulty maintaining balance are especially susceptible to fall-related injury. Skechers Shape-ups toning shoes are designed and manufactured to change gait and force wearers to maintain balance. By their nature, people wearing toning shoes are more susceptible to falling, which could result in a traumatic brain injury. Individuals who have suffered a brain injury as a result of falling while wearing Skechers may be entitled to financial compensation in a lawsuit, and recover damages for medical care and treatment, lost earnings and loss of future earnings, pain and suffering, and other related expenses.
