Thank you, Green Country for coming out and donating school supplies and backpacks for the “2 Cares for the Community” and Carr and Carr’s 3rd annual backpack drive benefitting The Pencil Box. We raised 233 backpacks and many monetary donations!
Carr and Carr had the opportunity to tour The Pencil Box this last week and see the supplies offered to our Tulsa community teachers. We met with Executive Director, Nancy Bolzle and many of the volunteers who the majority are retired teachers.

We have partnered with City Care in Oklahoma City.
Supportive Communities Program with City Care and Night Shelter is for people who have or are currently transitioning out of homelessness and into housing. Over the last 24 years, City Care has built 115 units of permanent supportive housing for our neighbors transitioning out of homelessness. These peer-supported communities are empowering our residents to use their lived experiences to encourage others. Residents have access to case support advocates who help them remain stably housed by focusing on increasing life skills, income, managing health needs, and rebuilding healthy support systems.
We have partnered with Tulsa Day Center in Tulsa.Tulsa Day Center’s first priority is seeing to a client’s basic needs: shelter, food, clothing, bathing. They offer rapid rehousing services, emergency shelter, medical assistance and legal aid to help ensure all of those needs can be met. We envision a future where every Tulsan has a home.
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.
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.
