The Homsey Law Center specializes in getting clients the results they need and deserve when they have been injured. Many cases are settled out of court to avoid the time and expense of trial which also carries with it emotional suffering most victims prefer not to face. The Homsey Law Center has such a strong reputation that many defendants prefer to settle rather than face a trial against us. Below is only a partial list of our cases. Some of our biggest cases are confidential and we are unable disclose any information here on our website. Some of these cases have received national coverage and so you might already know about them.

Truck Accident with Severe Injuries
Homsey, Cooper, Hill and Carson pride themselves on being attorneys that litigate lawsuits to obtain a favorable outcome for their clients. Sometimes this requires us to take on hard cases where the defendant denies responsibility for the client’s injuries. For example, we represented an electrician and his family after the client was in an automobile accident on his way to work. Mr. Doe’s accident happened around 5:00 am.The defendant trucking company’s driver was attempting to make a delivery to a business which was closed. Since traffic was light, the truck driver decided to make a u-turn. While making the u-turn, the truck driver blocked all 4 lanes of travel. Our client was driving and did not see the trailer and struck the rear axles and tires. The impact caused some orthopedic injuries, but more seriously it caused brain injuries. The defense attempted to blame the client stating that the truck and trailer were sufficiently lit and the client should have seen the truck and trailer and avoided the wreck.
After one week of trial and vigorous examination of the witness, the jury returned a verdict of 5 million!
Drinking and Driving While Working
Client’s mother and 6 year old daughter were on the highway going to pick up her son at work around 9:00pm. They were struck from behind at a high rate of speed smashing the rear end of the truck causing the gas tank to catch fire. The resulting fire killed the grandmother and daughter. After vigorous investigation and discovery, we produced evidence that the driver had been drinking. Our efforts also uncovered that the boss knew the driver had been drinking.
Homsey Law Center fought hard and brought justice to our client. The client received a seven-figure settlement.
In 2007, a 3 year old was accidentally left in a day care van for hours by one of the employees. By the time the toddler was discovered, his body temperature had risen to 117 degrees causing a heat stroke resulting in severe brain damage and neurological disorders.
As this child fought for his life and the medical bills continued to pile up, his mother turned to attorney, Gary Homsey, for help. After much research and investigation, it was discovered that the day care did not carry insurance. And the reason that they did not carry insurance was because the Department of Human Services does not require day cares to carry liability insurance for accidents.
Although the toddler will never be the same and suffers from this terrible accident, the legislation has ruled that day care providers are required to carry liability insurance. Day care facilities are required to carry a minimum of $200,000 in insurance. If a facility is unable to get liability insurance, they must notifiy the parents of the children they provide care for. If a facility does have insurance and fails to renew, that can be grounds for the suspension of its license.
Firefighter with Cancer
In July of 2006 a veteran Edmond firefighter was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer. The Edmond firefighter thought he would be eligible for Workers Compensation benefits because Oklahoma law presumes his colon cancer is a work-related injury due to the nature of the job, which includes repetitive exposure to smoke, hazardous materials and chemicals.
However, Edmond City officials denied Workers Compensation benefits to the firefighter. The city officials found the law to be unconstitutional because it provides special treatment for firefighters.
Attorney, Jeff Cooper, helped the Edmond firefighter fight the Edmond city officials all the way to the Oklahoma Supreme Court. The Oklahoma Supreme Court upheld the claim that due to the dangers of fighting fires, firefighters can suffer from illnesses such as cancer or heart or lung problems.
This ruling not only affects the Edmond firefighters but other state firefighters.
