Vehicular accidents are the leading cause of injury in Louisiana and are responsible for thousands of injuries every month along with hundreds of deaths each year. Last year alone, over 72,000 people were injured and an additional 720 were killed as a result of motor vehicle collisions. Over 700 of those injured were a direct result of an auto accident occurring in Avoyelles Parish. These accidents can simply be unavoidable and they too often lead to devastating injuries that are overwhelming to victims and their families. Auto accidents can be attributed to a variety of causes, from the simple inattentiveness of a motorist to the reckless act of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
