Known as “The Frog Capital of the World” and “The Louisiana City of Murals,” the city of Rayne is located in Acadia Parish and houses over 8,000 residents. Rayne was founded by Dr. Richard H. Cunningham and was formally incorporated in 1883. The city was first called Pouppeville before the name was changed to honor B.W.L. Rayne, an engineer who helped develop the first railroad in the area. The Rayne Frog Festival takes place annually every November, where locals and tourists alike can feast on delicious frog legs and participate in frog racing contests. The local abundance of frogs is widely celebrated in Rayne, from the Rayne Frog Festival to many the city’s many frog murals decorating storefronts, streets, and other public ways throughout the town. Many notable individuals call Rayne home, ranging from Cajun musicians such as Harry Choates, Joe Falcon, Jo-El Sonnier, and Tony Thibodeaux, to athletes such as NFL wide receiver Josh Reed and professional golfer Mike Heinen, to writers of African American folk narrative such as Oscar Babineaux.
Motor vehicle accidents are the primary cause of injury in the state of Louisiana, leading to over 72,000 injuries and an additional 700 deaths last year alone. In Acadia Parish, vehicular collisions were responsible for 908 injuries and nine deaths. The causation of these accidents can occur for a variety of reasons; for example, a driver may be distracted while talking on the phone and rear-end a vehicle. However, sometimes the circumstances surrounding a vehicular accident can be complex – leading to difficulty apportioning fault and determining who is responsible for damages. 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.
