Nursing Home
At the GT Law Firm, we understand that it is a very difficult time for families when their loved one is hurt or neglected in a nursing home or assisted-living facility and subsequently suffers a decline in health or even an early death.
Signs of physical abuse include unexplained bruising, skin tears, and other mysterious injuries. Neglect occurs when the nursing home staff fails to provide basic care to prevent dehydration, malnutrition, and bedsores. Neglect also occurs when the staff fails to provide enough supervision to keep the resident safe from harm. In many cases, lack of proper supervision results in preventable falls, which often cause hip fractures, head injuries, broken bones, and death. It can also result in residents wandering or eloping from the facility unsupervised, resulting in injuries and death.

If your loved one has been abused or neglected in a nursing home or was injured in an assisted-living facility, contact us at GT Law for a free, no-obligation consultation. We are committed to helping you find answers so you can have the peace of mind of knowing what actually happened to your loved one.
Trucking Accident
Trucking companies and their drivers must follow specific safety rules to prevent wrecks and protect all of us driving on the roads and highways.
These rules include limiting how long drivers can be on the road so they can remain alert and not distracted by fatigue. The rules also require drivers to inspect the brakes on the truck and trailer each day before driving to make sure the truck and trailer are safe for use.

Most truck drivers follow these safety rules. However, some choose not to or are put in a position to violate the rules by the company that employs them.

If you have been injured in a semi-truck collision or a loved one has lost their life, you must act quickly. If you don't, the trucking company may destroy the evidence needed to prove the driver violated the safety rules.

Contact us today for free advice on your case. We are ready to help you get the answers you deserve.
Wrongful Death
Those who have lost a loved one in an accident know how precious life really is. A death in the family has a tremendous impact on the victim's spouse, children, and parents. The grief can be too much to bear, the worry about the future overwhelming.
The thought of hiring an attorney to investigate the death can be one of the furthest things from the family's mind. However, quick action is often needed to preserve evidence, have the correct regulatory agency investigate, or ensure the medical examiner is involved. Failing to act quickly can cause a family to lose the ability to be compensated for the death of their loved one.

A quick call to our office will allow us to begin working on preserving your rights, while you and your family grieve and start the healing process. We can also advise you as to who in your family is entitled to be compensated and how much. Call us today so that you and your family's future can be protected.
Auto Accident
Car accidents can cause significant injuries, lost time from work, and financial hardship. GT Law has over 25 years of experience in helping car wreck victims and their families.
We have successfully represented clients who have filed claims with all of the major insurance companies, such as State Farm, Allstate, Farmers Insurance, Progressive, Liberty Mutual, GEICO, Travelers Insurance, AIG, Nationwide, Hartford, Shelter Insurance, Oklahoma Farm Bureau, CNA, and others.

If you or a family member have been injured in a car wreck, you should contact GT Law right away, before you give a statement to an insurance adjuster or sign paperwork on an insurance claim. Allow us to help you through the claims process and protect your rights to be fairly compensated for your losses.
Personal Injury
A personal injury case is a general way of describing those types of cases where a person is injured due to someone else's fault. It can be from a car wreck, a defective product, poor care in a healthcare facility, or any similar type of circumstance.
Regardless of how the injury occurred, the person injured is entitled to compensation for such things as medical bills, lost wages, future bills and lost wages, physical and mental pain and suffering, disfigurement, and loss of enjoyment of life. The spouse of an injured person is also entitled to money for the affects the injury has had on the marriage.

Regardless of how you or a family member has been injured, the GT Firm has the experience and knowledge to help. Contact us today.
Product Liability
Most everyone assumes a product sold to the public is safe. However; some manufacturers sell poorly designed or manufactured products that create a needless danger to the user.To make matters worse, the manufacturer will often fail to warn the consumer ab
Many times, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) will issue a recall of the product. Cars and trucks that may be defective are often recalled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

At the GT Law Firm, we have handled all types of defective product cases. We have been able to prove defects in manufacturing, as well as exposing poor product design to the point of creating our own safer re-design of the product to prove that the injury to our clients could have been easily avoided.

Call us today so we can start investigating your case.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Guy became a lawyer because he wanted to help the powerless against the powerful. To do this effectively, he chose to work at a law firm that represented insurance companies as his first law-related job in order to learn how large insurance companies handle insurance claims. He took that knowledge and began representing injured victims and their families in 1990, first working for a small firm, then opening his own office in 1992.

In 1997, he merged his law practice with a larger personal injury law firm and continued to develop vast experience in all types of practice areas listed on the GT Firm website, while managing and mentoring other lawyers on how to handle cases.

Guy continues using his vast experience and knowledge through The GT Law Firm. With offices in Tulsa and OKC, he helps injured victims and their families statewide.
