Pointe Coupee Parish
Located just to the north of our State’s capital city of Baton Rouge, Pointe Coupee Parish was founded in 1807 and is named after the French term meaning “the place of the cut-off.” Rich with Creole French architecture, with 18th and 19th-century antebellum homes lining the communities, Pointe Coupee Parish is home to over 22,000 citizens and the parish seat is located in Point Coupee. The parish is ripe with agriculture and is the top pecan producers in the entire state. The parish also contains part of the Atchafalaya National Wildlife Refuge, a 44,000 acre refuge which serves as the home to many threatened and endangered species in the state.
In 2013 alone, nearly 69,000 people were injured in motor vehicle accidents in Louisiana and an additional 668 were killed. With millions of motorists living and passing through Louisiana each year, these accidents are an everyday occurrence and oftentimes are simply unavoidable. Motor vehicle accidents can often involve a set of complex circumstances, which makes it difficult to apportion liability. Only a skilled personal injury attorney can assess the situation, analyze the facts of the accident, and determine who should be responsible for the damages resulting from the crash.
