Presently serving as the seat of Vermilion Parish, Abbeville is a small town located outside of Lafayette and Baton Rouge that is home to over 12,000 residents. The town was settled in 1843 and was originally named “La Chapelle” after the French hometown of the original founder, Père Antoine Désiré Mégret, before its name change to “Abbeville” a few years later. Residents and tourists alike can enjoy the many festivities that Abbeville has to offer each year, such as the Giant Omelette Celebration held each November, where local and visiting cooks join forces to prepare an omelette using over 5,000 eggs.
Motor vehicle collisions can simply be unavoidable occurrences in today’s day and age, often leading to catastrophic damages that devastate victims and their families.
