Approximately 6,100 pairs of women’s dress shoes are being recalled because the heels may lean, resulting in a fall hazard. So far, one customer sustained a minor leg injury after a fall while wearing the shoe. The leather dress shoes have a three-inch heel, open toes, and a leather bow, with “Naturalizer” printed inside. They were manufactured in China and sold in Naturalizer stores across the country for $25-50 from July 2011 to November 2011. According to news reports, customers are asked to stop wearing the shoes and return them immediately to any store in order to receive a full refund.
As an Annapolis car accident lawyer, I hope nobody is hurt by wearing these shoes. Those who think they may own the recall should check to see if the shoe is undergoing a recall and return them immediately if they are. The shoes may be dangerous and cause injuries for those wearing them. A company is completely liable for a product they produce, and should be held responsible. If you or a loved one feel they were harmed by an unsafe product, get in touch with a personal injury attorney who can evaluate your claim, help guide you through the legal process, and defend your legal rights.
