Crocs Shoes Sued by Westminster Family

Posted on January 27, 2012

A four-year-old girl lost one of her toes while riding an escalator in the Westminster Mall while wearing Crocs, a style of soft clogs, and the family is suing the manufacturer of the shoes.

Allon and Josephine Motzney are seeking damages for the accident worth $2 million in a lawsuit filed on January 26.

Several lawsuits have been filed against Crocs for their alleged dangers to children on escalators. The attorney hired by the Motzneys’ has handled 13 of the lawsuits.

In a different case that is being handled by his firm, a Santa Monica child was injured on an escalator in Boston, M.A. Another accident also occurred at the Brea Mall.

According to the lawsuit filed by the Motzney family, the child received the Crocs as a gift in December 2010. The shoes were apparently caught in the side of the escalator in a JCPenney department store.

The little girl allegedly lost one toe and all of the skin on the bottom of her foot.

The lawsuit claims that Crocs had prior knowledge of the dangers of the shoes on escalators, as they have received 186 claims from other clients. Apparently, the shoes get caught in the side skirts of the escalators.

Crocs does put a warning label on the children’s clogs, but the attorney for the Motzneys claims that the warning is insufficient.
