Home to one of the most unique cultures in the United States, New Orleans is the cultural centerpiece of Louisiana, attracting millions of tourists each year who enjoy the many festivities that this city has to offer. New Orleans was founded in 1718 by Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne, Sieur de Bienville, who named the city after Philippe d'Orléans. Known as the “Crescent City,” New Orleans is home to nearly 370,000 residents, which is the most-populated city in the state, and is most famously known for the annual festivities of Mardi Gras. The city is home to the New Orleans Saints who, with one of the most loyal professional football fanbases in the country supporting them, won the NFL championship in 2009, bringing triumph and celebration to a city that was left devastated by Hurricane Katrina only a few years before. The city is also home to many prestigious educational institutions, including Tulane University, Loyola University New Orleans, University of New Orleans, and Xavier University of Louisiana. New Orleans is only an hour drive away from the city of Baton Rouge, the capital of Louisiana.
A city that attracts a tremendous amount of tourism such as New Orleans has thousands of motorists driving into the city each week, which leads to more motor vehicle accidents and the injuries that follow. Last year alone, Orleans Parish saw over 10,000 people suffer injuries, highest in the state, and an additional twenty-eight lives were lost as a direct result of vehicular collisions. An unfortunate product of a city with the nightlife and festivities of New Orleans is drunk drivers. 372 people were injured, most in the state, and another twelve people were killed due to the reckless actions of drunk drivers. If you or a loved one suffered injuries in a vehicular accident involving an intoxicated driver, only an experienced personal injury attorney can guide you through the claims process and hold that motorist responsible for his recklessness.
