Located only a short drive from the state capital of Baton Rouge and across Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans, Livingston Parish has a population of over 131,000 residents and was formed in 1832 from the southern part of St. Helena Parish. Some say that the parish is named after Edward Livingston, the famed jurist who helped draft the Louisiana Civil Code in 1825, while others argue that the parish is named for Robert Livingston, the popular local lawyer who helped successfully negotiate for the Louisiana Purchase. Livingston Parish is home to many festivals and events, including the annual French Heritage Festival at the Creole House Museum in French Settlement. Livingston Parish is neighbors with East Baton Rouge Parish to the West, Tangipahoa Parish to the East, and St. Helena Parish to the North.
Motor vehicle collisions were responsible for nearly 69,000 injuries and over 660 deaths in Louisiana in 2013 alone. Drunk-driving is a deadly epidemic that continues to sweep our country and is responsible for far too many tragedies every year. In 2013, 3,200 people were injured in alcohol-related crashes in Louisiana and another 251 were killed in these senseless tragedies. If you or a loved one suffered injuries due to a collision with a drunk driver, an experienced personal injury attorney can guide you through the difficult claims process and fight in court to hold that drunk driver responsible for his reckless actions.
