Located near the Texas border in the northwest region of Louisiana, the city of Shreveport is home to over 200,000 residents and is the third most-populated city in the entire state. Founded in 1836, the city is named after the corporation that was assigned to develop the area: the Shreve Town Company. Shreveport presently serves as the seat of Caddo Parish and the Red River separates the area from neighboring Bossier City. Shreveport has been a prime location for the film industry due to the tax benefits offered by the state, with dozens of Hollywood movies filmed over the past few years in the area. Shreveport residents and tourists alike can enjoy the many festivities that the city has to offer each year, from the Highland Jazz & Blues Festival to the Red River Revel.
A highly-populated city like Shreveport located close to the Texas border experiences high volumes of motorists driving to, through, and from the city every day, which inevitably leads to a greater chance of being involved in an auto accident. 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 Caddo Parish, vehicular crashes were responsible for 3,046 injuries, the fifth-highest number in the state, and thirty-five deaths, the fourth-highest number in the state. The causes of these crashes can range from distracted drivers to reckless motorists impaired by drugs or alcohol. However, sometimes the circumstances surrounding a vehicular accident can be complicated – leading to great difficulty determining who is responsible for damages. Only an experienced personal injury attorney can confidently assess your situation, protect your rights, and fight for the just compensation that you deserve.
