St. Landry Parish
Named for the famed former Bishop of Paris, St. Landry Parish was founded in 1807 and has a population of over 83,000 citizens. Located in the heart of Louisiana, the parish is known for its rich Cajun culture. The parish seat is located in the city of Opelousas, which houses over a quarter of the parish’s population. Opelousas is also known as being the home of “Zydeco” music, famous in Louisiana as a blend of the Cajun, blues, and R&B genres. St. Landry Parish contains parts of the Atchafalaya National Wildlife Refuge and the Jean Lafitte National Historic Park and Preserve.
Almost 69,000 people were injured in motor vehicle accidents in Louisiana and an additional 668 were killed last year alone. With millions of motorists living and passing through Louisiana each year, these accidents are everyday occurrences that too often lead to debilitating injuries that devastate victims and their families. You will need an educated personal injury lawyer if you ever find yourself in a car accident so that you may protect your rights and obtain just compensation.
