With only 22,000 people located in the city of Yukon, there is a strong community of people who highly value living in a place they feel safe and protected with those they love. Located just next to the western side of Oklahoma City, Yukon is also known for being located near the legendary Route 66, as well as near the Kilpatrick Turnpike. As an older town that was founded in 1891, over the past 120 years it has grown from a total of 25 families to now over 20,000 residents. It is a cultural and family city; and they often celebrate life and love as a community by way of festivals, dances, and numerous other gatherings. Seeking to cultivate the atmosphere of the small historical town, the people of the community do what they can to participate in these memorable events that are frequently hosted.
Wrongful Accidents and Injuries
Unfortunately, even in a small family town there are still bound to be tragic accidents that occur; leaving ourselves or those we love injured or dead. According to statistics from the Oklahoma Department of Public Health and Safety, the city of Yukon experienced 295 total traffic accidents just in 2011, alone. While last year's accidents did not result in any fatalities, it is reported that there were 6 life altering injuries, along with a large handful of other injuries as a result. Believe it or not, car accidents happen far too often; even in a small town like Yukon. Sadly, many of these accidents are a direct result of the negligent and careless acts of other individuals who are on the road. Often times a driver is distracted with their cell phone texting, or they are behind the wheel intoxicated, among many other possibilities.
Perhaps you were working with the cities construction crew when you were severely injured, and despite the doctor's attempts, they were unable to help you get feeling back in your legs. Construction and workplace accidents are commonly known to cause injuries, if not wrongful deaths; because of other employees failure to complete their job properly or the employers lack of procedure following in their company. The list of accidents and injury possibilities is endless; and whether you live in a large city with a million people, or your home is here in this family town of Yukon; people are still victims of wrongful injuries on a daily basis.
With the state of Oklahoma becoming one of the fastest growing oil fields in the United States, the likelihood of injuries and accidents significantly increasing. Every year the number of injuries and fatalities are increasing for those who work on these oil sites, and in many cases they are not receiving anywhere close to the compensation they deserve for their suffering. Just between the years of 2002-2007, there were an estimated 600 oil field and rig workers who lost their life according other Bureau of Labor Statistics. As more and more methods such as hydraulic fracturing are being used, even more workers are suffering as a result.
