Home to over 14,000 residents, Bienville Parish is located in the northwest region of Louisiana and its parish seat located in the city of Arcadia, which is also the largest city in the parish. The parish was founded in 1848 and named after Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville, former governor of Louisiana and founder of New Orleans. The most popular landmark located in this parish is Mt. Driskill, a hill that is the highest natural geographic point in Louisiana with an elevation of 535 feet above sea level, followed by nearby Jordan Mountain, with an elevation of 493 feet above sea level. Lake Bisteneau, a popular recreational area in this region of the state, spans across part of Bienville Parish while also settling in neighboring Webster and Bossier Parishes. Bienville Parish is perhaps best known as the final destination of the infamous crime duo, Bonnie and Clyde, who were notorious for their cross-country crime spree.
Motor vehicle accidents are a common occurrence in today’s time and it is important to protect every right you have if you ever find yourself in one. In Louisiana in 2013 alone, over 68,000 people were injured as a direct result of motor vehicle accidents and an additional 668 more people were killed. Damages suffered in vehicular crashes can encompass more than physical and emotional injuries and can include lost work wages among other compensable damages.
