Known for its vast countryside and the beauty of the Ouachita River, Caldwell Parish is home to roughly 10,000 residents. Caldwell Parish was originally part of Catahoula Parish and Ouachita Parish, but in 1838, the area was formally established as an independent parish. The parish is named after a prestigious local family at the time of establishment: the Caldwells. The parish seat is located in the city of Columbia. The Louisiana Art and Folk Festival, which often attracts over 10,000 guests, is held annually in the second week of October in Caldwell Parish. Dr. Harry Winter’s Nature Preserve, home to over 100 different species of birds, is also located within the parish boundaries.
Motor vehicle accidents have simply become too much of a common occurrence in today’s society, leading to thousands of tragic injuries and deaths to motorists and pedestrians every year. Louisiana saw nearly 69,000 people injured and 668 killed in vehicular crashes alone in 2013. Causes of these vehicular collisions can range from a distracted driver using his cell phone to a driver recklessly getting behind the wheel while under the influence. If you or a loved one has been involved in a motor vehicle collision, you should immediately consult a talented personal injury attorney who can help protect your rights.
