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.
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!
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.
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.
