Summer is in full swing and attention on pool safety should be focused, especially for individuals who have a pool in their backyard. More than half of children who drown between the ages of one and four do so in their own home swimming pool.
In a recent interview on Good Day Tulsa, injury lawyer Michael Carr discussed both the potential dangers of home swimming pools and the liability issues that surround injuries and deaths that may occur.
Like most drivers, you’ve probably had to share the road with semi-trucks and other large commercial vehicles. And you’ve probably also been intimidated by the sheer size of these vehicles, especially when they change lanes or swerve unexpectedly.
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!
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
The manufacturer or seller of the product fails to provide adequate
warnings about the product’s risks or instructions for the product’s
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.
