Located in the northeast region of Louisiana, Concordia Parish is home to over 20,000 people and shares its eastern border with Wilkinson County, Mississippi. The parish was created in 1807 from parts of present-day Avoyelles Parish and its parish seat is located in Vidalia, which is also the parish’s largest city. Concordia Parish is named after the Latin word for “harmony.” Bayou Cocodrie National Wildlife Refuge is located in Concordia Parish and serves to protect numerous species, including the wood duck and the Louisiana black bear. Parishioners and tourists alike enjoy the Jim Bowie Festival every September at the lovely Tacony Plantation. Concordia Parish is neighbors with Tensas Parish to the north and Pointe Coupee Parish to the south, and is surrounded by three rivers: The Ouachita River to the west, the Red River to the south, and the Mississippi river to the east.
Nearly 69,000 people were injured and an additional 668 more were killed in motor vehicle collisions last year in Louisiana. Too many people are hurt and too many families are devastated as a direct result of vehicular collisions in Louisiana each year, and the causes of these accidents range from simple inattentiveness to the reckless act of driving under the influence. Motor vehicle accident claims can often become complicated when the circumstances of the wreck are complex, and only a skilled personal injury attorney has the expertise to analyze the facts and determine liability.
