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.

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.

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.
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.

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.
