Home to over 8,000 residents and located just outside of Lafayette, the city of Scott was formally incorporated in 1907 and is named after J.B. Scott, the former superintendent of the railway line that bisected the city. The second largest municipality in Lafayette Parish, Scott is proudly known as “The City Where the West Begins.” Scott’s Welcome Heritage Interpretive Center gives visitors a detailed look at the city’s rich Cajun culture and history. In recent years, the Louisiana legislature has taken note of the rich Cajun heritage of Scott and designated the Acadiana city as the “Boudin Capital of the World,” due to the vast number of Boudin purveyors in the city which translates to the most Boudin purveyors per capita in the State of Louisiana.
The leading cause of injury in Louisiana is motor vehicle accidents, which are responsible for thousands of injuries and hundreds of deaths each year in the state. In Evangeline Parish in 2012, 485 injuries and ten deaths were directly attributable to vehicular crashes. Car accidents happen every hour of every day across Louisiana and they can occur for a multitude of reasons. For example, an inattentive driver text messaging while driving could ram into the back of a vehicle due to the driver’s delayed reaction time. Apportioning liability in these collisions can oftentimes be difficult due to the complex circumstances that surround the accident. 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.
