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.

Defective Pressure Cooker Lawsuits

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 Carr & Carr for help!

Firearm Safety With Michael Carr
