Congratulations, Pat Carr, On Completing The San Francisco Marathon With A Great Time!

August 1st, 2014

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!

Electrical Power Line Injuries

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.

$2 Million Verdict Awarded In Tulsa Daycare Safety Case

May 10th, 2014
Carr & Carr is proud to have helped a family obtain justice.

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.

Attorney Pat Carr said, “I am proud of the work done by Carr & Carr‘s trial team, Laurie Koller assisted by Guy Thiessen. Their hard work and skills in the courtroom will help keep children in this community safer by keeping child abusers away from childcare facilities.”

Tornado Damage Insurance Claims

April 28th, 2014

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.

If your home or business has been damaged by a tornado, hail storms or other severe weather conditions, your homeowners’ or business property insurance should pay for repairs or rebuilding.

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.

Low-T Drugs have recently been linked to serious heart problems

New medical research show that men using testosterone therapy could increase their risks of heart attack, stroke and even death.  This includes various prescription testosterone treatments which includes shots or injections, topical gels, and skin patches.

Common Injuries Caused by Testosterone Drugs may include:

  • Stroke
  • Heart Attack (Myocardial Infarction)
  • Pulmonary Embolism (Blood clots in the lungs)
  • DVT or Deep Vein Thrombosis (Blood clots in veins)
  • Death

List of Drugs Currently being Litigated

  • Axiron (Eli Lily)
  • Bio-T-Gel (Teva Pharmaceuticals)
  • Striant (Columbia Laboratories)
  • AndroGel (AbbVie)
  • Fortesta (Endo Pharmaceuticals)
  • Androderm (Actavis)

If you have taken or are currently taking one of these prescription drugs, you may be entitled to financial compensation.  And we may be able to help you.  Please call us immediately at 1-877-392-4878.

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.

Recall: Nap Nanny And Nap Nanny Chill Infant Recliners

February 11th, 2014
If your baby has been injured because of using a Nap Nanny infant recliner, contact Carr & Carr Attorneys for legal help.

If your baby has been injured because of using a Nap Nanny infant recliner, contact Carr & Carr Attorneys for legal help.

All models of the Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill infant recliners have been voluntarily recalled, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, due to potential harm to infants.

The CPSC is aware of four infants who died in Nap Nanny Generation Two recliners and a fifth infant who died due to using the Chill model.    

From 2009 to the present, the CPSC has received at least 92 incident reports involving Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill products.  Five of these reports involved babies who died while the other incidents involved infants hanging or falling over the side of the recliner seat.  Some infants were restrained in the product’s harness.

If you have a Nap Nanny or Nap Nanny Chill, stop using it immediately.  If your child was injured or killed because of using a Nap Nanny product, save the recliner but do not use it anymore.  Store it in a safe place away from children.

The company that manufactures these dangerous products,  Baby Matters LLC, is no longer in business and is not accepting returns.  About 165,000 Nap Nanny and Chill recliners were sold for about $130 each between 2009 and 2012 at toy and children’s retail stores.

In December 2012, the CPSC filed an administrative complaint against Baby Matters LLC.  The legal matter  sought a recall of the infant recliners.  The CPSC and Baby Matters LLC reached a settlement agreement which includes this recall of all models of Nap Nanny products, while ending the legal proceedings against the firm.  

If your child was injured or killed as a result of using a Nap Nanny product, contact Carr & Carr Attorneys to see if we can help you.  It is free to talk with us and you are under no obligation.  Call 1-877-392-4878 to learn how we can help your family heal.  With offices in Tulsa, Oklahoma City and Northwest Arkansas, we help families across the United States who have been harmed by unsafe products.

Nap Nanny Recall

February 11th, 2014

The Nap Nanny was recalled by the manufacturer due to 92 incident reports filed with the Consumer Products Safety Commission. The Nap Nanny recall has created quite a stir online. 5 infants have reportedly died in connection with this product. Many concerned parents are searching for an explanation. It is believed that the Nap Nanny does not provide adequate side support to keep the infant from sliding off the edge of the foam mattress. Most likely, however, the infant is still harnessed by the seat belt restraint. So it is possible this the child cannot breath freely, perhaps causing strangulation.

Nap Nanny Recall
As a parent with small children, I am very concerned about products like this. It is no small matter for a product not to have adequate and reasonable safety precautions. Children, particularly infants, are completely helpless and often cannot use their hands and arms to hold up their own body weight. If sleeping infants were to slump over, with the full weight of their head and shoulders over the side, it is quite possible they would not be able to pull themselves upright. Their lungs may be squeezed too hard. Their abdominal and back muscles are not strong enough yet to keep their torso up, especially when asleep. Anyone who has ever held an infant knows they must be cradled with your arms around them.

It is clear from the incident reports that this product is unsafe, and falls below the reasonable standard expected of a manufacturer of infant products. We at Carr & Carr are committed to helping spread the word about defective products and educating the public about known safety threats. We are here to help safeguard your wellbeing. If you know of a possible injury related to this product, or any other product, please give us a call. 1-877-392-4878
