Carr & Carr’s Eduardo Mora (far right) with Supreme Court Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor (third from right) and other guests.
Carr & Carr Claims Manager Eduardo Mora attended an exclusive reception for Sonia Sotomayor, associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Mora, who is very active in the Hispanic community, was invited to Gilcrease Museum to hear Justice Sotomayor speak. Other dignitaries at the Sept. 10 event included state and local judges, attorneys, and leaders in the Hispanic community.
Justice Sotomayor was in Tulsa to speak to students and faculty at the University of Tulsa. While in town, she also visited Booker T. Washington High School.
She joined the high court in 2009. Sotomayor is the first Supreme Court justice of Hispanic descent, the third woman to be appointed to the court and, at 60 years old, one of the youngest current members.
There’s good news for Oklahoma drivers. The number of Oklahomans who died or were injured in a traffic collision in 2013 is down significantly compared to 2012. In 2013, 678 individuals died in crashes in Oklahoma. That is a 3.3% decreased compared to 2012. Even more dramatic, the number of Oklahomans injured in collisions dropped 29.3% compared to 2012.
Not surprisingly, 52.6% of those who died in Oklahoma car wrecks were not using a seatbelt. However, it’s important to keep in mind that sometimes a seatbelt can fail and come apart during the wreck, therefore making it seem that the person was not wearing a seatbelt when in fact the person was.
The month that had the highest amount of fatalities was August, followed by September. Somewhat surprisingly is the fact that January, a month known for snow and icy roads, had the least amount of fatalities.
Finally, the age group that had the highest amount of fatalities in car crashes were males between the ages of 21-25.
If you or a loved one have been injured in a wreck, contact our Oklahoma car wreck lawyers. We do not charge anything to see if we can help and only recover something if we are successful in obtaining a settlement or judgment for you.
A startling report from the CPSC issued on August 22, 2014, states that the Ace Bayou Bean Bag chairs have been recalled because a suffocation hazard exists allowing youg children to unzip the bean bag, get inside and become trapped. After becoming trapped, a child can suffocate. The central problem with these bean bags is that a standard exists requiring bean bags to be non-refillable, meaning that they must have permanently closed and disabled zippers.
The CPSC reports that two children have died from suffocation with these bean bags, including a 13 year old boy that resided in McKinney Texas and a 3-year old girl that resided in Lexington Kentucky.

We don’t charge anything to see if you have a case and only recover something if we recover something for you through a settlement or judgment.
Congratulations to Pat Carr on completing the San Francisco marathon with a phenomenal time of 4 hours, 52 minutes, 17 seconds. He was 17th out of 60 runners in his age group, men 65 to 69 years old. This is Pat’s third San Francisco marathon. The event was July 26.
A marathon is 26 miles, 385 yards. That’s like running from downtown Tulsa, south on Highway 75 to the Creek Turnpike, west until almost where the turnpike turns back north on Highway 169. Very impressive, Pat!
Pat Carr finished the San Francisco marathon in less than five hours.
Carr & Carr has over 40 years of experience helping people injured or killed in tragic accidents, including electrical power lines.
We have successfully helped injured persons and their families receive financial compensation for their loss. Injuries involving electrocution are often fatal. Unlike lightning strikes, people who accidentally contact with a live overhead electrical power line most often do not survive. And many times this accident was not completely the fault of the person hurt. Our attorneys know how to help in these kinds of cases.
If you know someone who has been affected by power lines of any kind, please have them contact our office right away. We would be glad to listen to their story and in most cases help them decide whether legal action is appropriate. We offer a free consultation with no obligation.

Carr & Carr is proud to have helped a family obtain justice and make our community safer for children.
Friday evening, a Tulsa County District Court jury awarded $2 million dollars to the family of a toddler who was abused at a Tulsa church daycare in a case that will hopefully improve children’s safety in daycares.
After hearing three days of evidence, the jury found that Kirk of the Hills Church acted in reckless disregard of the safety of children by withholding information from John Knox Presbyterian Church that daycare worker Meredith Howard was the subject of an investigation into the abuse of a little boy. Withholding that information allowed John Knox to unsuspectedly hire Howard as a daycare worker. While working at John Knox, Howard abused a little girl. The jury awarded compensation of $2,000,000 to the little girl and her family.
After the jury returned the verdict, Dr. Wayne Hardy, senior pastor of the Kirk, said the church would review its policy concerning references it provides about its daycare workers.
With tornado and storm season here, residents of Oklahoma realize the potential for tragedy in their communities. Recent tornadoes in Quapaw, killed one person and caused severe property damage.

Problems With Storm Damage Claims
If your insurance company is not helping you get back on your feet, you might be having problems such as:
My claim is being low-balled. Is your insurance company not recognizing the value of your property that was destroyed or damaged? Is it putting a dollar value of well below what it should be? We can typically negotiate better because we have worked with this type of situation.
My insurance company is dragging its feet. Yes, it takes a while for paperwork to be processed, but when you have a feeling something isn’t right, it’s time to get help.
My claim is being denied for a reason that seems unlikely. Sometimes claims actually can be denied, but you have a right to know why. If the reason for the denial seems unlikely, you need to talk us so we who can investigate and provide direction to you.
My insurance company says the damage to my house wasn’t caused by the tornado. Sometime the excuses to not pay you what you are owed might seem ridiculous. If this is the case, contact Carr & Carr to see what options you have.
Having us work for you to get the best offer will be easier on your family while you are trying to put your life back together. During this stressful period, our law firm, which has helped tornado damage victims, will be able to work on your behalf to get the best possible outcome for your family.
It won’t cost you anything to see if we can help. There is no fee for our legal services unless we are able to help you. No money comes out of your pocket upfront. We can deal with your insurance company and take away your frustration. And if your insurance company refuses to do the right thing, we will pursue legal action to get you the money you deserve.

It is important that you are aware of the recent FDA warnings regarding the dangerous side effects of these drugs. Unfortunately, many drug manufacturers promote the notion that these drugs are necessary for your overall well-being as you age. But this is often not true. There are many common results of aging which can improved with more natural means. And, unfortunately, there is a lot of consumer confusion regarding male testosterone levels and sexual performance expectations hyped up by marketers. The drug companies know this, and are taking advantage of false consumer expectations.
