Have you child-proofed your home? If you are living with young children, you probably have taken plenty of precautions — making sure medications and cleaning products are out of reach, covering electrical outlets, and avoiding choking hazards are all important. But, you might not suspect that your child could be seriously injured or killed because of falling furniture. Continue reading


Volkswagen Emissions Recall Update

Noble McIntyre on April 26, 2016

Last fall, the news broke that there would be a huge Volkswagen recall that had to do with the manufacturer’s having falsified emissions tests. Some Volkswagens had been manufactured to include software that could misrepresent the amount of pollutants that cars were putting into the air. For consumers, this caused a lot of problems, including Volkswagens that would fail inspections or that would lose resale value because of the faulty emissions software.

Dangers of Driving on Flooded Roads

Noble McIntyre on April 13, 2016

April showers bring… well, you know the saying. But, sometimes, an “April shower” (or any downpour) is more than a shower. Heavy rains, especially in the spring, can cause severe flooding. Driving on flooded roads can be very dangerous. In any harsh weather situation, the best option is to stay off the roads, but that’s not always possible. If you do need to drive when there are flooded roads, keep these cautions in mind:

Tire Safety: You’re Only as Safe as Your Vehicle

Noble McIntyre on April 5, 2016

Like any responsible vehicle owner, you probably keep track of certain maintenance needs—oil changes, belts and other things crucial to keeping your car working optimally and safely. But, how often do you think about your tires? Until you get a flat, you might think that everything’s just fine, but that’s not necessarily the case. Your tires’ quality and maintenance is one of the keys to safety on the road. It’s not just safety, either. Good tires not only protect against some breakdowns and crashes, but they also give you increased fuel economy and longer tire life.

What is an underride accident?

Noble McIntyre on March 29, 2016

An underride accident is when a passenger vehicle crashes into the rear or a tractor-trailer, and the result is often fatal. Although tractor-trailers are required to be equipped with underride guards, these often fail, even in low-speed crashes. When a passenger vehicle crashes into the rear of a tractor-trailer, the upper part of the passenger compartment can be crushed because the body of the truck has such an impact on the vehicle safety cage.

Voice-activated Texting No Safer than Texting While Driving

Noble McIntyre on March 15, 2016

Would you drive drunk? Probably not. For most reasonable people, the idea of driving drunk is something that they simply don’t see themselves doing. They know the risks and the consequences, and they’re going to take every precaution to avoid doing so. But, lots of those same people would think nothing of sending a quick text while driving. They might even think that they’re being extra cautious if they choose to use voice-to-text over typing a text, but that’s been shown to be incorrect. In fact, distracted drivers are even more dangerous than drunk drivers.

Filing a personal injury claim in Oklahoma

Noble McIntyre on March 8, 2016

How long do I have to file an Oklahoma personal injury claim?

A “statute of limitations” is the legal term for the amount of time you have to file a claim. Generally, you have two years from the date of the incident to file a personal injury claim in Oklahoma. If you wait longer than two years from the date of the incident or injury, the court might not be willing to hear your case. The exception to this rule is that if your case involves the Oklahoma government, you would have only one year to file a claim for liability.
