Billy Duncan is this year’s recipient of the Outstanding Young Lawyer Award.

Billy has been active in the Young Lawyers Division for several years, and this year, he assisted TCBA President Philip Hixon in creating a stand-alone Young Lawyers Board. Not only did he help with the development of its by-laws, but he also served as Chairman of the Board. Billy recruited and encouraged young lawyers to get more active in sections and committees. Billy also helped coordinate the YLD activities like the bowling and softball leagues and the wine-tasting competition that raised $1,000 for the Tulsa County Bar Foundation. In addition to these additional duties, Billy also participated in and completed the first YLD Leadership Academy.

Billy is a 2015 graduate of the University of Tulsa Law School. While there, he served as the vice president and delegate of the Student Bar Association, Director of the Board of Advocates, President of the Military Law Society, and Social Chair at Phi Delta Phi.  He has interned at BDO, Tulsa County Das Office, Barrister Padraic Dwyer in Dublin, Ireland, and Wagoner County DAs Office.

Billy Duncan served as the first President of the TCBA’s Young Lawyer Division, which replaced the Young Lawyers Committee at the beginning of this year. Billy met with President Philip Hixon and Tami Williams several times during the summer of 2022 prior to the beginning of President Hixon’s term to discuss the new Young Lawyers Division. Billy was tasked with developing new bylaws for the YLD board of directors, which he did without complaint. The bylaws were completed in time for approval at the first board meeting of the new fiscal year. With his position, he became an ex officio member of the Executive Committee and attended additional meetings, again, without complaint. Billy ably led the YLD in its first year, introducing new events and projects and setting precedent for future YLD leadership. He was also a participant in the inaugural class of the YLD Leadership Academy. Billy was an important part of a successful year for the YLD and the TCBA.

Bill Duncan Award

Billy’s work experience included the Oklahoma Tax Commission, Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma, Richardson Richardson Boudreaux, LaCourse Law, Stratton Law, and BDO USA, LLP.

Billy is passionate about encouraging other young lawyers to participate in the Tulsa County Bar Association. Whether participating in TCBA activities or spending time with his wife Amanda and two daughters, Presley (5) and Zoey (3), he believes investing in the next generation is essential to the bar’s future and our community.

Michael Carr Discusses Dog Bite Incidents

Host: Well, if you are a dog owner, you may wonder what your responsibility would be if your dog bit someone. Michael Carr joins us today to tell us what we should do in that situation. Good morning, Michael. And I feel bad because we literally just showed a dog on here that’s up for adoption at the Tulsa SPCA, and then we talk about dog bites. This dog did not bite anybody, so we’ll clarify that right off the bat. But if you do have a dog that gets out of a fence or somebody comes over, you know, a repairman of some sort and the dog bites them, what kind of responsibility do you have as a homeowner?

Michael Carr: Right, well, it’s good to know what the law is in Oklahoma with respect to dog bites because Oklahoma actually does have one of the stricter laws when it comes to what a dog owner could be responsible for. So in Oklahoma, if you have a dog and the dog bites someone, then you are strictly liable for the damages the dog causes, no matter what. Except there are a couple of exceptions. One would be if someone provokes the dog and causes the dog to bite them. In that instance, the dog owner would not be responsible. But otherwise, the dog owner would be on the hook for whatever the damages are.

Host: Okay, so I watch enough Judge Judy every now and then to see there’s a lot of dog bite cases that they have on there. They’re always kind of weird when somebody else is at fault. You mentioned if you were provoking the dog, but if somebody, let’s say some kids go through your yard, if your yard’s fenced in, your dog’s back there, and some kids are trying to cut through to another yard and they climb over the fence, are you liable in a case like that?

Michael Carr: Well, so you would only be liable if the person who is injured is at the location they’re entitled to be at. So, for example, you took the example of maybe a trespasser. If someone sneaks onto your property and they don’t have a right to be there, and your dog is simply protecting you and your property, then no, you would not be responsible for the injuries the dog bites. You’re only responsible if the dog bites someone where the other person’s lawfully there. So, for example, if you’re at a dog park or something, if you’re on a walk and your dog suddenly bites someone walking next to you, on that occasion, yes, the dog owner would be responsible unless, of course, the pedestrian somehow startles the dog and provokes the dog to bite them.

Host: Now, what are you entitled to if you are bitten by a dog? If you’re the person who’s on a walk and a dog gets off leash and bites you, or if you’re in your own neighborhood and someone’s dog is not on a leash and it bites you, what are you entitled to?

Michael Carr: So, under Oklahoma law, you’ve been entitled to various things. If you’ve been bitten by a dog and you have to go get medical care, well, you’re gonna have medical expenses. And if that happens, then yes, you would be entitled to your medical expenses and any future medical expenses you might need. If you miss time from work because of this, you’d be entitled to your lost wages. It also affords just the pain of suffering from getting bit by a dog. It’s not something to be taken lightly, and the court would allow you to ask for compensation for the pain and suffering that you’ve gone through because of the dog bite.

Host: Okay, so when is it time to call a lawyer in a case like that? Is that as soon as it happens or wait and see how bad it is?

Michael Carr: Well, the law in Oklahoma is not always crystal clear. So if you’ve been injured by a dog and you’re not really sure what you might be entitled to, then yes, give us a call here at Carr & Carr. We’re able to provide you with a free consultation and let you know what you might be entitled to.

Host: All great information. Thank you so much. We appreciate all the information. We’re going to tell folks how to get in touch with you. Thank you, Michael. All right, Carr & Carr, 4416 South Harvard Avenue. Give them a call if you have questions at 918-747-1000 or you can go to their website at carrcarr.com. They’re also on Facebook.

Distracted Driving is an Ongoing Issue Across Oklahoma

Watch our interview with Michael Carr as he discusses distracted driving with Good Day Tulsa.    

What are the most common things people get distracted within the car?

The most common is a cell phone and many cars today have come equipped with hands-free device technology to help combat this distraction. However recent studies have shown that even if you are using hands-free in the car, if you are speaking with someone it lessens your ability to pay attention to the road.

Who is most at risk to be driving while distracted?

Teenage drivers are the most at-risk drivers to be distracted drivers. For teenagers ages 15-20, motor vehicle collisions are the leading cause of death. Teenagers don’t typically drive by themselves; they have other teenagers in the car and they don’t typically stay quiet.

What happens if you are hit by someone that is clearly driving while distracted?

If you are involved in a collision and the other person was distracted or on the phone, you can receive compensation for medical bills, time off work, and your pain and suffering. Call Carr and Carr Attorneys today to speak with an attorney today.

Philips CPAP Lawsuit – Recall, Settlements & Legal Help


Carr and Carr Attorneys at Law are offering free consultations to individuals who used Philips CPAP machines and have since been medically treated for lung injuries or cancer.

We have been helping Oklahomans and clients nationwide in lawsuits against defective and/or dangerous products manufacturers since 1973. Call us today at 866-510-0580 to arrange a complimentary consultation or contact us online. Our dangerous drug attorneys have offices in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, but we work with victims of dangerous products nationwide.


On June 14, 2021, Philips announced a voluntary recall for various Philips Bi-Level Positive Airway Pressure (Bi-Level PAP), Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), and mechanical ventilator devices.

The recall provides potential health risks the company identified in their devices’ polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) sound abatement foam component. This component can disintegrate or outgas, causing users to inhale and/or ingest toxic and possibly carcinogenic substances. The recalled devices include those in the first-generation DreamStation product family.

Philips first publicized the adverse, foam-related effects of its CPAP and Bi-Level PAP devices in its first-quarter 2021 company report. Based on reports and testing, Philips determined the PE-PUR foam could degrade into particles. These particles can then enter the device’s air pathway and be ingested or inhaled by the user. Furthermore, the foam may off-gas certain chemicals.

Philips further explained that unapproved cleaning methods, including ozone, can exacerbate foam degradation, as can specific environmental conditions that involve high humidity and temperature. Philips states these environmental conditions involve the climate and temperatures of the locations where the devices are being used and stored, not the temperature and humidity caused by a patient’s use of the devices.

The CPAP User Manual for the first-generation DreamStation product family—which comprises most of the affected medical devices—failed to warn of these potential health risks.

Side Effects and Injuries from Philips CPAP Machines

Philips reports the following potential health risks caused by the foam degradation in the recalled CPAP and Bi-Level PAP devices.

Particulate Exposure Health Risks

  • Cancer
  • Possible toxic effects
  • Respiratory issues
  • Effects to liver, kidneys, and other organs
  • Inflammation
  • Irritation of eye, skin, and respiratory tract
  • Headaches

According to Philips, patients have also reported black debris/particles in the airpath circuit of the machines. The company has received patient complaints about sinus infection, chest pressure, upper airway irritation, and headaches.
