Located in the heart of central Louisiana, Alexandria was incorporated in 1818 and is home to over 48,000 residents. Alexandria is named after Alexander Fulton, a Pennsylvania politician who founded the city after receiving the land grant from Spain. The city serves as the seat of Rapides Parish, also the parish’s largest city, and is neighbors with the peaceful city of Pineville. Alexandria has many attractions that both children and adults can enjoy, such as the beautiful Alexandria Zoo, Cotile Lake Recreation Area, Indian Creek Lake and Recreation Area, or the serene Kisatchie National Forest, the only National Forest in the State of Louisiana. Tourists and locals alike descend on Alexandria for its annual “Cenlabration” festival, one of the largest festivals in Central Louisiana which celebrates local, Central Louisiana culture and heritage.
A city like Alexandria that is located in the center of a booming state experiences thousands of motorists traveling to, through, and from the city every single day on its many roads, highways, and interstates. This naturally leads to a greater possibility of being involved in a vehicular accident, which is the leading cause of injury in the state of Louisiana. Last year in Rapides Parish, nearly 2,500 people suffered injuries and an additional twenty-two people were killed in motor vehicle accidents. The causes of these crashes can range anywhere from a simple inattentive driver to an aggressive driver speeding or tailgating other vehicles. Oftentimes the circumstances surrounding the accident are not so simple, leading to problems determining liability and who exactly is responsible for the damages. If you ever find yourself in a motor vehicle collision, you should immediately contact an experienced personal injury attorney who can help protect your rights.
