Social Media – Facebook and Instagram

At Carr and Carr our team of over 40 professionals are here to help you. We have been serving injured Oklahomans since 1973. With offices in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, we have a staff available to help you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our team of 12 attorneys and our dedicated staff are here to help you when you need it the most.

We represent young adults or parents of adolescents who became addicted to Facebook and/or Instagram and suffered serious mental health injuries, including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and suicidal ideation.

A few of the listed negative experiences tied to social media are; fear of missing out, inadequacy about your life, isolation, cyberbullying, emotional exhaustion, low quality of sleep, and self-absorption. Many of these experiences create a cycle of users returning repeatedly.

Social media platforms are aware of the dangers they are introducing to young adults, the vulnerable and at-risk users to generate profits. Addictive tactics are being used based on rewarding behaviors and tracking focus and engagements to create dopamine like other addictions.

According to Data Reportal: 17 of the largest social media platforms had at least 300 million active users in July 2022. Facebook has 2.936 billion monthly active users and Instagram has a potential advertising reach of 1.44 billion. A 2018 study by Hopelab and Well Being found that 93% of youth aged 14-22 use social media daily. Earthweb states that teens spend an average of three hours a day on social media, while some reported spending up to 9 hours on social media.

If you or someone you love have suffered serious mental health injuries and believe it is tied to the use of social media platforms, we may be able to help. Our experienced Oklahoma and Arkansas attorneys have fought for our clients in courts across the country. We have successfully represented people who have suffered a wide range of devastating injuries.

Tylenol Lawsuit Information

The makers of over-the-counter drugs have an obligation to ensure the products they manufacture are safe when used as directed.

Yet every year thousands of people are harmed by dangerous drugs, and at Carr & Carr, we believe the manufacturers should be held responsible.

Tylenol and Acetaminophen:

Studies have shown that taking Tylenol or other private label APAP during pregnancy increases the risk of having a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder and/or ADHD.

In 2018, researchers did a meta-analysis of seven studies involving 132,738 pairs of mothers and children. The analysis revealed a 20% higher risk of autism for children who had prolonged exposure to acetaminophen in the womb.

In 2019, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health found that children whose cord blood samples contained the highest levels of acetaminophen — the generic name for the drug Tylenol — were roughly three times more likely to be diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder later in childhood, compared to children with the lowest levels of acetaminophen in their cord blood.

  • UCLAHEALTH.ORG

“The causes of ADHD and hyperkinetic disorder are not well understood, but both environmental and genetic factors clearly contribute,” says Beate R. Ritz, MD, PhD, chair of epidemiology at the UCLA Jonathan and Karin Fielding School of Public Health. “We know there has been a rapid increase in childhood neurodevelopmental disorders, including ADHD, over the past decades; it is likely there are environmental components.” The UCLA researchers used the Danish National Birth Cohort, a nationwide study of pregnancies and children, to examine pregnancy complications and diseases in offspring as a function of factors operating in early life. The cohort focuses especially on the side effects of medications and infections.

Carr & Carr Attorneys have been protecting the rights of injured people since 1973. Our law firm has obtained multi-million dollar settlements for cases involving defective or dangerous products.

We’ve helped victims from across the country get the financial security they need to cope with medical costs and move forward with their lives.

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.

Why Working With an Attorney Is Always Best After an Injury

If you get injured in Oklahoma, there may be severe financial consequences. Medical bills and lost wages can affect your finances immediately, and long-term care and reduced earning potential can create a monetary burden for years to come. This situation is even more frustrating for individuals who weren’t at fault for their injuries: drunk driving victims, neglected nursing home residents, or users of a defective product.

Generally, injury victims are told to file an insurance claim to receive compensation. But this process can be complicated and stressful, and insurance providers don’t always offer fair settlements. Sometimes, the only way to receive fair financial compensation is through a personal injury lawsuit.

The team of injury attorneys at Carr & Carr has helped many Oklahoma residents seek compensation via insurance claims or lawsuits. We’ll listen to your story and help you get the money you deserve to cover medical bills and other financial expenses. To schedule a free consultation, contact us online or call our OKC office at 405-691-1600.

Inadequate Insurance Settlements

Car or truck accidents are common causes of injuries in Oklahoma. If you’re injured in a car accident, one of the first things you should do is contact your insurance provider, even if you weren’t at fault (or were only partially at fault) for the accident. Under Oklahoma’s modified comparative fault laws, multiple parties can be liable in an accident, which can affect compensation via insurance claims and injury lawsuits.

Regardless of the exact circumstances of the accident, however, filing an insurance claim can often end the same way. The liable party’s insurance provider offers you an extremely low settlement for your injuries. In many cases, these lowball insurance offers aren’t enough to cover your initial medical bills, much less the cost of lost wages, ongoing treatments, and other financial consequences.

Insurance providers are businesses, and they will usually try to get away with paying as little as possible on a claim. Tring to negotiate an insurance settlement on your own can be a stressful experience.

High-Pressure Tactics

Unfortunately, insurance providers often use unsavory tactics to minimize the amount they pay on claims. The adjuster may try to rush through the process, making the victim feel like they must accept the first settlement offer immediately or risk losing the chance of any compensation. Another common tactic is using aggressive, “hard sell” language to try to pressure or guilt victims into accepting a low settlement offer.

It’s essential to remember that an insurance provider is a for-profit company. The adjuster assigned to your case may be a decent person, but their loyalty is to their employer, not to you. When you’re talking to anyone from an insurance company, remember that they’re working in the company’s best interest, not yours.

The Advantages of Hiring an Injury Attorney in Oklahoma

You may think that hiring an attorney automatically means you’ll have to file a personal injury lawsuit. But that’s not the case. A personal injury attorney can provide support and expertise to help you understand your options and let you know whether an insurance settlement offer is fair.

By calling an attorney after your injury, you can gain an ally for the entire claims process. Insurance providers are often more willing to offer high settlements to claimants who have legal representation. And if you do decide to file a personal injury lawsuit, having a lawyer with you from the beginning makes it easier to gather evidence and build a strong case.

Contact Carr & Carr for a Free Consultation

If you or a loved one is injured in a car accident, on someone else’s property, or by a defective product, you may be able to file an insurance claim. However, insurance providers often use high-pressure tactics and lowball settlement offers to limit the amount of money they have to pay to claimants. When you’re recovering from an injury, trying to get a fair insurance settlement just adds stress to an already difficult time.

At Carr & Carr, we know the ins and outs of insurance tactics. We’re dedicated to helping injured Oklahoma residents get the money they need to cover their medical bills and lost wages. If you’ve been injured, call us to schedule a free consultation. We’ll help you understand what options you have and help you seek fair compensation, whether that means filing an insurance claim or an injury lawsuit.

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune – North Carolina Water Contamination Claims for Compensation

A recent federal law provides compensation for injuries caused by contaminants in the drinking water at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.

Individuals who may seek compensation include those who resided, worked, or were otherwise exposed (including in utero exposure) to contaminated water supplied by the United States at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina for not less than 30 days during the period beginning on August 1, 1953, and ending on December 31, 1987. Legal representatives of those individuals who have died or who are not competent may also seek compensation.

The toxic contaminants in that water may have caused conditions which include adult leukemia, aplastic anemia and other myelodysplastic syndromes, bladder cancer, kidney cancer, liver cancer, multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Parkinson’s disease, esophageal cancer, breast cancer, renal toxicity, scleroderma (systemic sclerosis), lung cancer, hepatic steatosis (fatty liver disease), miscarriage, cardiac (heart related) birth defect (in utero only), birth defect/birth injury (in utero only), female infertility, childhood leukemia, childhood non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, or neurobehavioral effects. This list will change as scientific studies progress.

Individuals and representatives must make claims for compensation to the federal government and file lawsuits in federal court in North Carolina.

Carr & Carr has been a trusted Oklahoma based law firm for almost 50 years. We have helped thousands of clients obtain compensation for injuries. We can help you obtain compensation for your injuries or for those of a loved one caused by contaminants in the drinking water at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.

Carr & Carr: A History of Excellence

A lifelong resident of Oklahoma, Patrick E. Carr has spent over 49 years providing legal services in Oklahoma and Arkansas. He started Carr & Carr Attorneys at Law in 1973 together with his father, Eugene Carr, and the two practiced law together for nearly 20 years until Eugene’s death in 1992.

Pat is active in the local community and the Oklahoma legal profession. He has held several positions within the Oklahoma Trial Lawyers Association, serving as a member of the Board of Directors, Vice-President in 2001, and President in 2002. He has also served as a member of the Rules of Professional Conduct Committee of the Oklahoma Bar Association and a Judge on the Oklahoma Temporary Court of Appeals. Along with his distinguished law career, Pat has served in the Oklahoma Army National Guard and in the U.S. Army Reserves.  

In 2010, Pat’s son, Michael, joined the firm as a partner. Michael earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Oklahoma and his Juris Doctor at Oklahoma City University School of Law. 

Michael’s practice is centered at Carr & Carr’s Midtown Tulsa office, but he has helped clients throughout the country in complex cases involving serious injury, wrongful death, and product liability. In his career, Michael has successfully represented clients against large companies, including Ford and Wal-Mart. 

Notable Cases and Settlements

At Carr & Carr, we have successfully represented thousands of clients over the past several decades. Here are some of the verdicts and settlements we’ve achieved:

Window Blind Cord Injury

A young child became entangled in a dangerous window blind cord and suffered a traumatic brain injury. Carr & Carr secured a $15.5 million settlement to be placed in a trust account for the victim’s ongoing medical care.

Car and Truck Accidents

Many of our clients are injured in motor vehicle accidents caused by another driver’s dangerous or negligent behavior:

  • $7.6 million settlement: A semi-truck rear-ended a car, killing one occupant and severely injuring his wife.
  • $6.6 million settlement: A car accident caused by a driver under the influence of illicit drugs killed a husband and father of two.
  • $3.5 million settlement: A semi-truck driver made a dangerous turn in foggy weather, killing the victim, a husband and father of two young children.

Carr & Carr recovered a $1 million settlement from a bar that overserved a customer who ended up causing a fatal car accident while driving under the influence of alcohol.

Defective Products

At Carr & Carr, we also represent victims against manufacturers of dangerous or defective products:

  • $850,000 settlement: A defective firework prematurely exploded and caused serious injuries to a firefighter.
  • $750,000 settlement: We recovered compensation from the designer and distributor of a poorly designed food processor that severed two of the victim’s fingers.
  • $500.000 settlement: A defective switch in a Ford truck caused a fire that destroyed the victim’s house.

These are just a few examples of the cases we’ve successfully represented. Find out more about what our clients have to say about working with the Carr & Carr team.

Trust Carr & Carr for Expert Legal Advice in Oklahoma

Physical injuries often cause a significant financial burden that typical insurance settlements don’t cover.
