Franklin Parish is located in the Northeast region of Louisiana and has a population of over 20,000 residents. The parish, named after Benjamin Franklin, was founded in 1843 and its parish seat is located in Winnsboro. Franklin Parish was formed from parts of present-day Catahoula, Ouachita, and Madison Parishes. The parish houses part of the Tensas River National Wildlife Refuge, which is home to one of the last concentrations of the Louisiana black bear, a threatened species. The famed Franklin Parish Catfish Festival is held annually every April in the area, where thousands come to enjoy a day filled with arts, music, and delicious food. Franklin Parish is neighbors with Richmond Parish to the north and Catahoula Parish to the south.
Car crashes can simply be unavoidable occurrences, occurring at any moment and at any location, and can too often lead to devastating and possibly even fatal injuries. Nearly 69,000 people suffered injuries in the state of Louisiana in 2013 as a result of motor vehicle collisions, and an additional 668 lives were claimed. Motor vehicle collisions are oftentimes avoidable however, and they can sometimes be caused through a driver’s fault or negligence, such as distracted driving or driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. A skilled personal injury attorney can assess the circumstances of any motor vehicle accident and confidently determine liability in order to figure out who will be responsible for paying the damages caused by the crash.
