- Laurie helped a former Marine who was badly injured when a tow truck crossed the center lane and hit his SUV head on. A Creek County jury returned a verdict of $5 million in favor of Carr & Carr’s client who sustained serious, permanent injuries.
- Teaming up with attorneys in our Oklahoma City office, Laurie is helping six families whose children have suffered injury because of ingesting torch fuel. The families are from Florida, Iowa, Oklahoma, and Delaware.
- In Arkansas, Laurie recently was able to secure a significant settlement for the parents of a young girl who was killed in a car wreck that occurred in a construction zone.
- Laurie recently helped a woman whose insurance company had denied her request to have knee surgery. Acting contrary to Oklahoma law, the insurance company alleged that the client had completed the insurance application improperly. This bad faith case resulted in a significant settlement for Carr & Carr’s client.
- Working alongside Pat Carr on this Oklahoma City case, Laurie was able to assist a severely disabled woman and her family because the woman was twice denied life-saving care by emergency department physicians. In this medical malpractice case, because doctors did not recognize her heart attack symptoms, the woman suffered a massive heart attack which caused permanent, debilitating brain damage.
