Oklahoma lawmakers on March 26, sent Gov. Mary Fallin proposed changes to how state courts can apply the death penalty in first-degree murder cases. Under the proposal from Republican Rep. Scott Biggs, a former county prosecutor, the death penalty would only be an option in first-degree murder cases if it is sought by the state, potentially limiting the number of executions in Oklahoma. If you have been charged with first-degree murder or another serious criminal offense in Oklahoma, contact our knowledgeable criminal defense lawyers at Atkins & Markoff to discuss your legal options. With our attorneys on your side, you can protect your legal rights and build a strong defense in your criminal case.

A $2.2 billion Risperdal settlement between the federal government and pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson may be delayed by Department of Justice (DOJ) demands that the drug firm acknowledge the risk of Risperdal breast growth side effects. The significant settlement was decided upon following a federal probe into the illegal marketing of J&J's Risperdal antipsychotic drug, which has been tied to abnormal breast growth in young men who took the medication as boys.

GlaxoSmithKline's already heavily restricted diabetes drug, Avandia, could face a national recall following an upcoming FDA advisory panel meeting scheduled to re-examine the side effects of the once-blockbuster medication. Avandia was subjected to severe restrictions by the FDA in 2010, due to an increased risk of heart attacks among users, and, although many critics called for an Avandia recall at that time, the agency allowed the medication to remain on the market with strict limitations on its availability. If you took the diabetes drug Avandia and you have since suffered a heart attack or another major side effect, contact our reputable attorneys at Atkins & Markoff to explore your possible compensation options.
A California man who claims that he developed bladder cancer side effects from Actos has been awarded $6.5 million by a jury, which found that Actos maker Takeda Pharmaceuticals failed to adequately warn consumers about the possible side effects of the widely used diabetes drug.

Cooper's Actos bladder cancer case was the first of more than 3,000 similar lawsuits filed throughout the country to reach a jury, and the jury decided in favor of Cooper.

OK Governor Mary Fallin has signed a new law that will make it easier to obtain a protective order in the state, in an effort to more adequately protect victims of Oklahoma domestic abuse.

Victims of serious accidents in Oklahoma depend upon Allstate Insurance Company for reimbursement for their injuries, medical bills, and other expenses related to their injuries. Unfortunately, some insurance companies intentionally reject personal injury claims in order to save the company money. In fact, some insurance claims adjusters are trained to deny claims or offer a settlement far below what the victim is entitled to, in order to pay out the lowest possible amount in damages. In some cases, the claims adjuster may even stall or drag out a claim in hopes that the victim will simply give up. These deceptive practices rob victims of their right to compensation for their injury-related expenses.
Policyholders of Universal Insurance Company who have been involved in a serious accident typically depend on the company to provide vital reimbursement for their injuries.

In some cases, the claims adjuster will stall or drag out a claim over time in hopes that the victim will simply give up. These deceptive practices are performed in an attempt to take advantage of a vulnerable victim and to save the insurance company money. The only way to fight a wrongfully denied insurance claim is to hire an Oklahoma attorney to represent your case.
Policyholders of American Fidelity rely on the insurance company for reimbursement following an accident during which they have sustained serious injuries.

In some cases, the claims adjuster may stall or drag out the claim over a long period of time in hopes that the victim will simply give up.
