Michael Carr Discusses Dangerous Toys on Good Day Tulsa

On Christmas morning, every child wants to unwrap the toy they asked Santa to bring them. But the elves buying those toys need to be aware of potential dangers, which might make some toys unsafe.

In a recent interview on Good Day Tulsa, injury lawyer Michael Carr discussed some common hazards parents should be aware of as they finish up their holiday shopping.

“There’s a nonprofit organization called World Against Toys Causing Harm, and every year they put out a list of what they consider to be the most dangerous toys,” explained Carr.

Watch Your Step for Slip & Fall Accidents

It can happen to anyone just about anywhere: a stumble, slip, trip or fall. And if it happens to you on someone else’s property, what should be your next step?

In a recent interview on Good Day Tulsa, injury lawyer Michael Carr explained the concept of liability in a slip and fall case as well as what an individual should do if they find themselves in a slip and fall situation.

“The first thing you should do is try to take some pictures if you can…and in addition to that, tell the store owner about it so there’s some kind of an incident report,” explained Carr.

According to Carr, most property and business owners are not liable for naturally occurring substances like snow or ice that may accumulate in parking lots. However, if the owner attempts to clear away the substance, but does a poor job of doing so, the property or business owner could be held liable if someone slips or falls. Liability can be extremely complex in slip and fall cases, so it’s always best to consult with a local attorney.

“If it’s determined that a business owner is responsible…then the injured person could seek compensation for their medical bills, trips to the hospital…if they missed work they could also seek compensation for that too…” Carr concluded.

If you’ve got questions about a slip and fall accident, don’t hesitate to reach out to the injury lawyers at Carr & Carr for a complimentary consultation at 866-510-0580.

Defective Pressure Cooker Attorneys in Oklahoma

These days, many kitchens have a pressure cooker, Instant Pot, or multi-cooker. They’ve become popular because they cook foods faster, but saving time might come with a problem…

On Good Day Tulsa, defective product lawyer Michael Carr recently discussed the dangers associated with these common kitchen gadgets.

“We’ve been seeing reports and there have been recalls…because these lids on these pressure cookers fly off and they cause really bad burns,” said Carr.

In November 2020, Sunbeam Products recalled nearly 1 million Crock-Pot Express Pressure Cookers after 99 burn injuries and 119 reports of the lid detaching.

Pedestrian Accidents in Tulsa

As the weather begins to warm in Oklahoma, it’s common for joggers, walkers, and runners to hit the streets. Individuals who use our roadways to exercise often use headphones or ear buds to listen to music, which can limit their ability to hear what’s going on around them.

In a recent Good Morning Tulsa interview, injury lawyer Michael Carr discusses how fault works in a pedestrian accident and offers advice for anyone who has been injured.

That’s what we do here at Carr & Carr,” said Carr. “We represent pedestrians who have been hit by drivers who don’t exercise reasonable care by either driving too fast, driving while on their phones, or driving while distracted.”

Pedestrian accidents are extremely dangerous. Without the safety of a car frame, individuals struck by a vehicle are most vulnerable to injury. If you’ve been involved in a pedestrian accident, don’t hesitate to call Tulsa car accident attorneys at Carr & Carr for help!

Distracted Driving in Oklahoma

Distracted driving is ANY activity that diverts attention from driving…things like:

  • Composing, sending, or reading a text
  • Talking on the phone
  • Using an app on your phone
  • Eating food or drinking beverages
  • Fiddling with the stereo, heat or air conditioning, or navigation system
  • Talking to passengers in your car
  • Handling children or pets in the car

In a recent interview on Good Morning Tulsa, personal injury lawyer Michael Carr discussed what to do if you’re ever involved in an accident with a distracted driver.

“That’s what we do here, we represent people who have been injured by distracted drivers, and we work to make claims for them against the other driver’s insurance carrier,” explained Carr.

Firearm Safety With Michael Carr

Attorney Michael Carr joins Good Day Tulsa to talk about firearm safety and how gun owners can avoid negligent lawsuits.

From 2005 to 2010, nearly 3,800 people in the United States died from unintentional shootings. More than a third of the victims were younger than 25.

On average, people in all age groups are more likely to die from unintentional firearm injuries when they live in states with more guns.

Firearm negligence is a serious matter. If you’ve been involved in an accidental shooting or been injured by another person’s discharge of a firearm, the firearm negligence attorneys at Carr & Carr can help.

The Dangerous Toys of 2020

Attorney Michael Carr joined a recent episode of Good Day Tulsa and talked about some of the 2020s most dangerous toys.

When you buy your child a toy, it’s reasonable to expect that the toy is safe for them to use.

In fact, the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA) made the voluntary toy safety standard in effect at that time mandatory nationwide instead. 

Even with laws in place to protect children from dangerous toys, defective toys can still get into their hands and cause injuries.

If your child is injured by a dangerous toy, please place the toy in a safe space away from your child and contact us to schedule a free consultation.

Our personal injury lawyers in Tulsa, and Oklahoma City are dedicated to protecting the rights of injury victims across Oklahoma.

Children and Hope Chest Injuries

Injury Attorney Michael Carr joined Good Day Tulsa to talk about how children can become trapped in a hope chest. Some hope chests, he says, have a locking mechanism that traps the child when the lid closes.

Factors in Product Liability

Understanding a little about the three basic types of product defects can help you determine whether you may have a valid product liability claim:

  • Design defects: Flaws in a product’s design make it unreasonably dangerous
  • Manufacturing defects: Faults in the manufacturing process contaminate the product or otherwise make it unreasonably dangerous
  • Warning defects: The manufacturer or seller of the product fails to provide adequate warnings about the product’s risks or instructions for the product’s proper use

It’s important to note a successful product liability case must establish the product was defective and the product defect caused the resulting injury or illness.

If you or a loved one suffered harm due to a potentially defective consumer good, please call us at 866-510-0580 for your free case consultation or contact us online to tell us your story now.

Carr and Carr Attorneys successfully represented a family who had tragically lost their child due to suffocation in a Lane Hope Chest. This was a tragic and unnecessary loss for their family. We prosecuted their case against the present owner of Lane Furniture for designing and selling the product even though they knew it was unreasonably dangerous.

Our case involved a Hope Chest which we alleged was unreasonably dangerous. The Hope Chest was designed so that a child could be trapped inside it if the lid closed. Further, there were no air openings to allow air to get inside the Hope Chest to allow a trapped child to survive. The self-locking lid was recognized as dangerous by the Consumer Product Safety Commission when the

Hope Chest was recalled in 1996.

We want to hold the makers of hope chests accountable, so they will make safer hope chests.

If you or a loved one have suffered a loss involving a hope chest, we would like to talk to you to discuss how we can help you receive justice for what you and your family have been through.
