With its northern boundary bordering Arkansas, Webster Parish is located in the northwest region of the state and is named for the former U.S. Secretary of State Daniel Webster. Founded in 1871, the parish has a population of nearly 41,000 residents and contains part of the Kisatchie National Forest, the only National Forest located in Louisiana. Webster Parish was formed from parts of Claiborne, Bossier, and Bienville parishes and the parish seat is located in the city of Minden, which is also the parish’s largest city. Thousands of people every year head to Springhill to take part in the Lumberjack Festival, where participants compete in timber-related sports competitions and others sit back and enjoy the festivities. Webster Parish is neighbors with Bossier Parish to its west, Claiborne Parish to its east, and Bienville Parish to the south.
Motor vehicle accidents have become commonplace in today’s day and age. Almost 68,000 people suffered injuries and over 660 more were killed in motor vehicle collisions last year in Louisiana. The causes of these accidents range from a driver simply not paying attention to a driver recklessly driving under the influence. Car accident claims can become complicated when the circumstances of the wreck are complex, leading to difficulty determining who is responsible for resulting damages, and only a skilled personal injury attorney has the expertise to analyze the facts and determine liability.
