Sue for Loss of Enjoyment of Life

Sue for Loss of Enjoyment of Life

Imagine you’re driving home after a long day at work, looking forward to a quiet evening with your family. Suddenly, another vehicle runs a red light and crashes into your car. In an instant, your life changes. 

Beyond the immediate physical injuries—broken bones, bruises, and perhaps more severe trauma—you find yourself unable to enjoy the activities that once brought joy to your life. Maybe you were an avid hiker, a passionate gardener, or someone who loved playing sports with friends. Now, those activities are out of reach, not just temporarily, but possibly for a long time.

This scenario is a stark reality for many who have been involved in serious accidents in Oklahoma. The term “loss of enjoyment of life” refers to the limitations placed on your ability to engage in enjoyable activities due to injuries sustained in an accident. It’s a significant component of your well-being and quality of life, and when it’s taken from you, the effects can be devastating—not just physically, but emotionally and psychologically as well.

At Carr & Carr, we understand the profound impact that loss of enjoyment of life can have on accident victims and their families. While no one can turn back time and prevent the accident from happening, our team is committed to helping you demand compensation for your losses. With a focus on personalized and compassionate legal support, we’re here to fight for the justice you deserve. 

Understanding Loss of Enjoyment of Life

When you’re injured due to another’s negligence in Oklahoma, the law recognizes not just the physical injuries and financial costs incurred but also the less tangible (yet profoundly impactful) damages to your quality of life. Among these is what’s known as the “loss of enjoyment of life.” 

This concept refers to the diminished ability to engage in activities or pleasures that made life enjoyable before the injury. Whether it’s hobbies, sports, or spending quality time with loved ones, the loss of ability to partake in these activities is a significant consequence of serious injuries.

In Oklahoma, loss of enjoyment of life is a legitimate category of compensable damages. This recognition addresses the full spectrum of harm suffered by victims—not just the visible injuries or the direct financial impacts but also the profound effect on a person’s happiness and satisfaction in life.

Is Loss of Enjoyment of Life the Same as Pain and Suffering?

It’s important to distinguish loss of enjoyment of life from other types of damages, such as pain and suffering or economic losses. While pain and suffering refer to the physical and emotional distress caused by an injury, loss of enjoyment of life zeroes in on the victim’s diminished ability to enjoy leisure activities or life’s pleasures. Economic losses, on the other hand, cover tangible financial impacts like medical bills and lost wages. Loss of enjoyment of life stands out because it captures the value of the experiences and joys lost due to the injury, which is not as easily quantified but is equally important to the victim’s well-being.

The Role of Evidence in Proving Loss of Enjoyment of Life

Loss of enjoyment of life can have a profound impact on your life. However, you’ll need specific evidence to demonstrate this loss. While the physical injuries may be apparent and economic losses are backed up by invoices, receipts, and employment records, proving loss of enjoyment of life is more challenging. Below is an overview of the steps you’ll need to take to prove your claim.

Document Your Life Before the Accident

Proving the loss of enjoyment of life starts with clearly showing what your life was like before the accident. You need to collect photos, videos, and stories from people that highlight how you were actively involved in hobbies, sports, or any activities that made you happy and fulfilled. These pieces of proof show the big difference between your life before and after the accident. For example, showing pictures of you running in marathons or doing creative activities like painting helps create a clear picture of the changes in your life.

Provide Personal Testimony

When you talk about how your everyday life, your hobbies, and your relationships with family and friends have changed, it tells a powerful story that can’t be shown just with numbers and medical terms. Your personal experience adds a human touch to the evidence, making it easier for others to understand and relate to the impact of your injury.

Obtain Medical Records and Expert Testimony

Detailed medical records show not only the severity of your physical injuries but also explain how these injuries have limited your daily life and activities. Statements from medical experts can also provide information on the long-term effects of your injuries. They connect the dots between what your medical records say and how your injuries have changed your life for the worse. 

Obtain a Psychological Evaluation

Getting a professional psychological evaluation can help prove cases of emotional distress, anxiety, depression, or other mental health problems caused by the accident. This type of evidence makes your claim stronger by showing the full effect of your injuries on your overall health and happiness.

In short, you need to fully show how an accident has changed your life. By carefully gathering evidence that shows the difference between your life before and after the injury, and with the help of an experienced lawyer, you can clearly show the court how much you have lost.

How to Sue for Loss of Enjoyment of Life in Oklahoma

If you’ve suffered loss of enjoyment of life after a preventable accident, you can take legal action to claim damages. Start by collecting all relevant medical records, photographs, and personal diaries that document your injuries and how they’ve affected your daily life and ability to enjoy hobbies and activities you once loved. Then find an Oklahoma personal injury lawyer who can evaluate your case and help you understand the compensation you might be entitled to.

Your attorney will draft and file a complaint against the party responsible for your injuries. This document will outline your legal claims, the facts of your case, and the damages you’re seeking. After the lawsuit is filed, both sides will exchange evidence during the discovery phase. This may include depositions, requests for documents, and interrogatories. Your attorney will use this phase to gather evidence supporting your claim of loss of enjoyment of life.

Many personal injury cases are settled before they go to trial. Your attorney will negotiate with the defendant’s insurance company or legal representation to reach a settlement that compensates you fairly for your losses. If a settlement cannot be reached, your case will go to trial. At trial, your attorney will present your case, including evidence of your loss of enjoyment of life, to a judge or jury, who will then decide on your compensation.

Importance of Hiring an Experienced Personal Injury Attorney

Although you aren’t legally required to use a lawyer, filing a lawsuit for loss of enjoyment of life is not a straightforward task. An experienced attorney, with their knowledge of Oklahoma’s legal system and personal injury law, will help ensure that your case is handled correctly and with the dedication it deserves. For example:

  • An Oklahoma personal injury attorney knows how to negotiate with insurance companies and opposing counsel, increasing your chances of receiving the maximum compensation possible for your injuries and loss of enjoyment of life.
  • From filing the lawsuit to managing the discovery process and representing you in court if necessary, an experienced attorney will handle all aspects of your case, allowing you to focus on your recovery.

At Carr & Carr, our personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you don’t pay unless you win your case. This arrangement allows you to pursue justice without worrying about immediate legal fees.

Choosing Carr & Carr for your claim means putting your trust in a law firm that truly stands by your side. To us, you are more than just a case number- from the moment you walk through our doors, you’re treated with care and respect by everyone from our receptionists to our paralegals and attorneys. We listen to your story, offer comfort, and provide support every step of the way. We also have the resources and determination to go up against big opponents, increasing your chances of getting the money you need to reclaim your life after an injury.

Compensation for a Loss of Enjoyment of Life Claim

In Oklahoma, there is no cap on non-economic losses in personal injury cases. This means there’s no fixed limit to the amount you can recover for the loss of enjoyment of life, allowing you to receive compensation that truly reflects your suffering.

Factors Influencing Compensation

The amount of compensation you can claim for loss of enjoyment of life and other damages is influenced by several important factors:

  • Severity of Physical Injuries: The more severe your injuries, the greater the potential compensation, as serious injuries tend to have a more profound impact on your ability to engage in enjoyable activities.
  • Impact on Daily Life: Compensation is also based on how your injuries affect your daily activities. If your injuries prevent you from doing things that were a big part of your life, this will be considered in determining your compensation.  
  • Age and Life Expectancy: Your age and expected lifespan play a role because they help estimate how long you’ll be living with the loss of enjoyment and other losses. Younger individuals might receive more compensation due to the longer period they have to live with their injuries.
  • Mental and Emotional Effects: The psychological impact of your injuries is also a critical factor. Emotional distress and mental anguish resulting from your inability to enjoy life as before can significantly affect your compensation.

Deadline for Suing for Loss of Enjoyment of Life

Under Oklahoma law, you generally have two years from the date of your injury to file a personal injury lawsuit. This two-year window, known as the statute of limitations, is your timeframe to seek compensation for your injuries, including claims for loss of enjoyment of life.

However, it’s important to note that there are exceptions to this rule. In certain situations, such as claims against government entities, you might have a shorter timeframe to act, sometimes only weeks or months. If you miss this deadline, you may lose the right to sue for compensation permanently. An experienced personal injury lawyer can guide the applicable deadlines in your case and help ensure that your lawsuit is filed on time.

Alert: Chuckle & Roar Water Beads Recall – What Parents Need to Know

The attorneys at Carr and Carr have experience with many dangerous products cases. If you suspect a defective product was responsible for the harm suffered by you or a loved one, our product liability attorneys are here to help. Call us at 866-510-0580 or contact us online for a free case consultation.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) along with Buffalo Games has issued a recall of its Chuckle & Roar Ultimate Water Beads Activity Kit. This recall comes after a 10-month-old baby died from swallowing the water beads, which were sold exclusively at Target.

water beads

These toys are marketed for children over the age of 4, but that doesn’t mean younger children can’t get ahold of them as well. The death of the 10-month-old from Wisconsin was reported to the company in July of 2023. The company also received a report of a 9-month-old in Maine swallowing the water beads in November 2022. That baby had to undergo surgery to remove the beads because they caused an intestinal blockage.

Not only are these water beads a choking hazard, but the CPSC says the beads can grow in size once they are ingested. That poses a risk of intestinal obstruction.

The CPSC is warning parents to immediately take the water bead away from their children and stop using them altogether. Here’s what you need to know about this recall.

What if my child has been hurt by these beads?

If you or a loved one is injured or becomes ill due to a product you believe may be faulty, the following steps can help preserve your ability to seek compensation through a product liability case:

  • Seek emergency medical treatment as necessary
  • Keep the product and any related material, such as the packaging, product instructions, and your receipt
  • Make note of the circumstances in which the injury occurred
  • Take photos of the injury and the site where the injury occurred
  • Consult with a knowledgeable product liability lawyer

The Oklahoma defective product attorneys at Carr & Carr have extensive experience in product liability cases, and we have helped injury victims from across the country who were harmed by dangerous consumer goods.

We offer free consultations to help you understand your rights after being injured by a defective product, and we don’t charge unless we recover compensation on your behalf.

Billy Duncan is this year’s recipient of the Outstanding Young Lawyer Award.

Billy has been active in the Young Lawyers Division for several years, and this year, he assisted TCBA President Philip Hixon in creating a stand-alone Young Lawyers Board. Not only did he help with the development of its by-laws, but he also served as Chairman of the Board. Billy recruited and encouraged young lawyers to get more active in sections and committees. Billy also helped coordinate the YLD activities like the bowling and softball leagues and the wine-tasting competition that raised $1,000 for the Tulsa County Bar Foundation. In addition to these additional duties, Billy also participated in and completed the first YLD Leadership Academy.

Billy is a 2015 graduate of the University of Tulsa Law School. While there, he served as the vice president and delegate of the Student Bar Association, Director of the Board of Advocates, President of the Military Law Society, and Social Chair at Phi Delta Phi.  He has interned at BDO, Tulsa County Das Office, Barrister Padraic Dwyer in Dublin, Ireland, and Wagoner County DAs Office.

Billy Duncan served as the first President of the TCBA’s Young Lawyer Division, which replaced the Young Lawyers Committee at the beginning of this year. Billy met with President Philip Hixon and Tami Williams several times during the summer of 2022 prior to the beginning of President Hixon’s term to discuss the new Young Lawyers Division. Billy was tasked with developing new bylaws for the YLD board of directors, which he did without complaint. The bylaws were completed in time for approval at the first board meeting of the new fiscal year. With his position, he became an ex officio member of the Executive Committee and attended additional meetings, again, without complaint. Billy ably led the YLD in its first year, introducing new events and projects and setting precedent for future YLD leadership. He was also a participant in the inaugural class of the YLD Leadership Academy. Billy was an important part of a successful year for the YLD and the TCBA.

Bill Duncan Award

Billy’s work experience included the Oklahoma Tax Commission, Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma, Richardson Richardson Boudreaux, LaCourse Law, Stratton Law, and BDO USA, LLP.

Billy is passionate about encouraging other young lawyers to participate in the Tulsa County Bar Association. Whether participating in TCBA activities or spending time with his wife Amanda and two daughters, Presley (5) and Zoey (3), he believes investing in the next generation is essential to the bar’s future and our community.

Michael Carr Discusses Dog Bite Incidents

Host: Well, if you are a dog owner, you may wonder what your responsibility would be if your dog bit someone. Michael Carr joins us today to tell us what we should do in that situation. Good morning, Michael. And I feel bad because we literally just showed a dog on here that’s up for adoption at the Tulsa SPCA, and then we talk about dog bites. This dog did not bite anybody, so we’ll clarify that right off the bat. But if you do have a dog that gets out of a fence or somebody comes over, you know, a repairman of some sort and the dog bites them, what kind of responsibility do you have as a homeowner?

Michael Carr: Right, well, it’s good to know what the law is in Oklahoma with respect to dog bites because Oklahoma actually does have one of the stricter laws when it comes to what a dog owner could be responsible for. So in Oklahoma, if you have a dog and the dog bites someone, then you are strictly liable for the damages the dog causes, no matter what. Except there are a couple of exceptions. One would be if someone provokes the dog and causes the dog to bite them. In that instance, the dog owner would not be responsible. But otherwise, the dog owner would be on the hook for whatever the damages are.

Host: Okay, so I watch enough Judge Judy every now and then to see there’s a lot of dog bite cases that they have on there. They’re always kind of weird when somebody else is at fault. You mentioned if you were provoking the dog, but if somebody, let’s say some kids go through your yard, if your yard’s fenced in, your dog’s back there, and some kids are trying to cut through to another yard and they climb over the fence, are you liable in a case like that?

Michael Carr: Well, so you would only be liable if the person who is injured is at the location they’re entitled to be at. So, for example, you took the example of maybe a trespasser. If someone sneaks onto your property and they don’t have a right to be there, and your dog is simply protecting you and your property, then no, you would not be responsible for the injuries the dog bites. You’re only responsible if the dog bites someone where the other person’s lawfully there. So, for example, if you’re at a dog park or something, if you’re on a walk and your dog suddenly bites someone walking next to you, on that occasion, yes, the dog owner would be responsible unless, of course, the pedestrian somehow startles the dog and provokes the dog to bite them.

Host: Now, what are you entitled to if you are bitten by a dog? If you’re the person who’s on a walk and a dog gets off leash and bites you, or if you’re in your own neighborhood and someone’s dog is not on a leash and it bites you, what are you entitled to?

Michael Carr: So, under Oklahoma law, you’ve been entitled to various things. If you’ve been bitten by a dog and you have to go get medical care, well, you’re gonna have medical expenses. And if that happens, then yes, you would be entitled to your medical expenses and any future medical expenses you might need. If you miss time from work because of this, you’d be entitled to your lost wages. It also affords just the pain of suffering from getting bit by a dog. It’s not something to be taken lightly, and the court would allow you to ask for compensation for the pain and suffering that you’ve gone through because of the dog bite.

Host: Okay, so when is it time to call a lawyer in a case like that? Is that as soon as it happens or wait and see how bad it is?

Michael Carr: Well, the law in Oklahoma is not always crystal clear. So if you’ve been injured by a dog and you’re not really sure what you might be entitled to, then yes, give us a call here at Carr & Carr. We’re able to provide you with a free consultation and let you know what you might be entitled to.

Host: All great information. Thank you so much. We appreciate all the information. We’re going to tell folks how to get in touch with you. Thank you, Michael. All right, Carr & Carr, 4416 South Harvard Avenue. Give them a call if you have questions at 918-747-1000 or you can go to their website at carrcarr.com. They’re also on Facebook.

Scott Carr Discusses Traumatic Brain Injuries

Watch as Scott Carr, Attorney at Law, discusses traumatic brain injuries with Good Day Tulsa.

The 3 main symptoms that we observe are:

  1. Physical symptoms: you can have many physical symptoms from a TBI such as headaches, vision issues, blurry vision, double vision, ringing in your ears, fatigue, and loss of balance or coordination.
  2. Cognitive symptoms: a person suffering from a TBI might be more forgetful or have difficulty concentrating and sometimes they have brain fog or lack of sharpness. They don’t have the same mental capacity as they did before.
  3. Emotional symptoms: most suffering from a TBI don’t feel like the same person as they were before. They may be more irritable or may have a personality change. They may feel anxious or depressed.

Can you get a traumatic brain injury without something physically hitting your head?

A violent jostling or jarring of the head is enough to cause a TBI. The brain has a soft almost gelatinous-like consistency and the inside of the skull has a number of sharp and bony edges. If you have a whiplash type of event, the brain can move within the skull. Those sharp, bony ridges can damage the brain and lead to hemorrhages or bleeding.

Can you have a TBI without it showing up on a CT Scan or MRI in the ER?

The goal of a CT Scan in the ER is to determine if you are someone who needs emergency brain surgery, not to determine if you have another type of TBI that will affect you long-term.

If you have been injured, our Oklahoma traumatic brain injury lawyers can help. Contact the Oklahoma personal injury office near you in Oklahoma City or Tulsa for a free consultation.

Distracted Driving is an Ongoing Issue Across Oklahoma

Watch our interview with Michael Carr as he discusses distracted driving with Good Day Tulsa.    

What are the most common things people get distracted within the car?

The most common is a cell phone and many cars today have come equipped with hands-free device technology to help combat this distraction. However recent studies have shown that even if you are using hands-free in the car, if you are speaking with someone it lessens your ability to pay attention to the road.

Who is most at risk to be driving while distracted?

Teenage drivers are the most at-risk drivers to be distracted drivers. For teenagers ages 15-20, motor vehicle collisions are the leading cause of death. Teenagers don’t typically drive by themselves; they have other teenagers in the car and they don’t typically stay quiet.

What happens if you are hit by someone that is clearly driving while distracted?

If you are involved in a collision and the other person was distracted or on the phone, you can receive compensation for medical bills, time off work, and your pain and suffering. Call Carr and Carr Attorneys today to speak with an attorney today.

Knee Replacement Recall

Did you or a loved one have had an Exactech knee replacement between 2004 and 2022? If you received a specific type of total knee replacement that was manufactured by the orthopedic device company, Exactech, a component and insert have been recalled from the knee replacement device that you received.

Carr and Carr Attorneys at Law have been helping clients in Oklahoma and across the nation with recalls like this for over 50 years. Our experienced team has the time and resources to represent you against Exactech. Call us today at 866-510-0580 for a free, no-obligation consultation, or contact us online to get started now.

On August 31, 2021, Exactech recalled over 147,000 knee replacements already completed and inserted into patients’ bodies.

Why is it Defective?

As shown in the diagram, the tibial plastic insert fits between the femoral component and the tibial component and acts as a new cushion or cartilage for your replaced knee joint. During a recent review of its knee implant manufacturing process, Exactech learned that one aspect of the packaging for the tibial insert has been out of specification and may have allowed oxygen from the air to diffuse into the tibial insert prior to it being implanted in your knee. This can lead to oxidation, which can cause the tibial insert to wear out earlier than expected or to become damaged after being implanted.

Premature wear of the tibial insert can lead to additional surgery. If your tibial insert has worn out earlier than expected or has been damaged, you may need additional treatment.

If you have been experiencing any new or worsening knee swelling, pain while walking, inability to bear weight, grinding or other noise, instability, or any new symptoms of clicking in your knee, these are signs of deterioration.

Carr and Carr Attorneys at Law are here to help. Our team can help you understand your legal options. Call us today at 866-510-0580 for a free, no-obligation consultation, or contact us online.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Target Corporation, of Minneapolis, Minnesota, are announcing the recall of about 204,000 Pillowfort Weighted Blankets, where a young child can become entrapped by unzipping and entering the blanket, posing a risk of death by asphyxiation.

Philips CPAP Lawsuit – Recall, Settlements & Legal Help


Carr and Carr Attorneys at Law are offering free consultations to individuals who used Philips CPAP machines and have since been medically treated for lung injuries or cancer.

We have been helping Oklahomans and clients nationwide in lawsuits against defective and/or dangerous products manufacturers since 1973. Call us today at 866-510-0580 to arrange a complimentary consultation or contact us online. Our dangerous drug attorneys have offices in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, but we work with victims of dangerous products nationwide.


On June 14, 2021, Philips announced a voluntary recall for various Philips Bi-Level Positive Airway Pressure (Bi-Level PAP), Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), and mechanical ventilator devices.

The recall provides potential health risks the company identified in their devices’ polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) sound abatement foam component. This component can disintegrate or outgas, causing users to inhale and/or ingest toxic and possibly carcinogenic substances. The recalled devices include those in the first-generation DreamStation product family.

Philips first publicized the adverse, foam-related effects of its CPAP and Bi-Level PAP devices in its first-quarter 2021 company report. Based on reports and testing, Philips determined the PE-PUR foam could degrade into particles. These particles can then enter the device’s air pathway and be ingested or inhaled by the user. Furthermore, the foam may off-gas certain chemicals.

Philips further explained that unapproved cleaning methods, including ozone, can exacerbate foam degradation, as can specific environmental conditions that involve high humidity and temperature. Philips states these environmental conditions involve the climate and temperatures of the locations where the devices are being used and stored, not the temperature and humidity caused by a patient’s use of the devices.

The CPAP User Manual for the first-generation DreamStation product family—which comprises most of the affected medical devices—failed to warn of these potential health risks.

Side Effects and Injuries from Philips CPAP Machines

Philips reports the following potential health risks caused by the foam degradation in the recalled CPAP and Bi-Level PAP devices.

Particulate Exposure Health Risks

  • Cancer
  • Possible toxic effects
  • Respiratory issues
  • Effects to liver, kidneys, and other organs
  • Inflammation
  • Irritation of eye, skin, and respiratory tract
  • Headaches

According to Philips, patients have also reported black debris/particles in the airpath circuit of the machines. The company has received patient complaints about sinus infection, chest pressure, upper airway irritation, and headaches.

Social Media – Facebook and Instagram

AdobeStock social media lo

At Carr and Carr our team of over 40 professionals are here to help you. We have been serving injured Oklahomans since 1973. With offices in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, we have a staff available to help you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our team of 12 attorneys and our dedicated staff are here to help you when you need it the most.

We represent young adults or parents of adolescents who became addicted to Facebook and/or Instagram and suffered serious mental health injuries, including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and suicidal ideation.

A few of the listed negative experiences tied to social media are; fear of missing out, inadequacy about your life, isolation, cyberbullying, emotional exhaustion, low quality of sleep, and self-absorption. Many of these experiences create a cycle of users returning repeatedly.

Social media platforms are aware of the dangers they are introducing to young adults, the vulnerable and at-risk users to generate profits. Addictive tactics are being used based on rewarding behaviors and tracking focus and engagements to create dopamine like other addictions.

According to Data Reportal: 17 of the largest social media platforms had at least 300 million active users in July 2022. Facebook has 2.936 billion monthly active users and Instagram has a potential advertising reach of 1.44 billion. A 2018 study by Hopelab and Well Being found that 93% of youth aged 14-22 use social media daily. Earthweb states that teens spend an average of three hours a day on social media, while some reported spending up to 9 hours on social media.

If you or someone you love have suffered serious mental health injuries and believe it is tied to the use of social media platforms, we may be able to help. Our experienced Oklahoma and Arkansas attorneys have fought for our clients in courts across the country. We have successfully represented people who have suffered a wide range of devastating injuries.
