St. Helena Parish
Originally one of the eight “Florida Parishes” that were once part of West Florida, St. Helena Parish is located in the southeast region of Louisiana, sharing its northern border with Mississippi, and is home to over 11,000 residents. Parts of the original St. Helena Parish were used to form neighboring Livingston Parish and Tangipahoa Parish. The Brushy Creek Impact Crater, the only known impact crater in the state of Louisiana, is located in this parish. One of the most rural areas in all of Louisiana, the parish seat of St. Helena is located in Greensville and the parish is one of the only ones in the state who can boast of having no red lights in the entire area.
Car accidents can occur at any location and at any time, and the causes of these accidents range from inattentive drivers to alcohol-impaired drivers. Nearly 69,000 people were injured in car crashes in Louisiana in 2013, which equates to roughly 189 people injured every day. Another 668 people were killed in vehicular collisions, but car accidents do not have to be fatal in order for them to devastate victims and their families. If you or a loved one was injured in a motor vehicle accident, you should immediately consult a skilled personal injury attorney who can help protect your rights.
