Named after the French term for “flat town,” the city of Ville Platte presently serves as the parish seat of Evangeline Parish, which is located in central Louisiana. While the around Ville Platte was settled in the latter half of the eighteenth century by the French while Louisiana was under Spanish rule, the city itself was founded in 1824 and is home to over 7,000 residents. Chicot State Park, a true fisherman’s paradise, is located near Ville Platte. Ville Platte is the site of the annual Louisiana Cotton Festival, which is a celebration promoting Louisiana cotton. The city is neighbors with Eunice to its southwest and Opelousas to its southeast.
Car crashes can simply be unavoidable occurrences and can too often lead to catastrophic and even fatal injuries. Nearly 73,000 people suffered injuries in the state of Louisiana in 2012 as a result of motor vehicle collisions, and an additional 722 lives were lost. In Evangeline Parish, nearly 500 people suffered injuries and an additional ten people were killed in motor vehicle accidents during that time. The causes of these crashes can range anywhere from a simple inattentive driver not paying attention to the traffic in front of him to a reckless motorist driving while intoxicated with alcohol or drugs. Oftentimes the circumstances surrounding the accident are not so simple, leading to issues determining who exactly is responsible for the resulting damages. If you ever find yourself in a motor vehicle collision, you should immediately contact an experienced personal injury attorney who can help protect your rights.
