Over the past two decades, no city in Louisiana has seen faster rate of growth than Youngsville, which is located in Lafayette Parish and home to over 8,000 residents. Youngsville was originally named “Royville” after George Roy, a 19th-century settler who helped develop the community. After numerous complaints about confusing the developing village with the city of Rayville, the townspeople elected to rename the area to Youngsville, which means “young village.” Shortly thereafter, in 1908, Youngsville was formally incorporated. The fast growth in population led the once-small village to be declared a town in 1983, and finally declared a city in 2006. Youngsville takes pride in this distinction, nicknaming the city “Louisiana’s Community of Opportunities.” Youngsville is also recognized as the birthplace of Dudley J. LeBlanc, Louisiana politician and entrepreneur of the Hadacol medicine empire of the 1950s.
Motor vehicle collisions can simply be inevitable occurrences that too often lead to catastrophic or even fatal injuries that can be devastating to victims and their families. Auto accidents are the leading cause of injury in Louisiana, leading to over 72,000 injuries and 720 deaths last year alone. Lafayette Parish saw over 4,600 people injured as a direct result of vehicular accidents during that time period, which is the fourth-highest total in the state. Those injured in auto accidents may be entitled to recover compensation for damages suffered as a result of the accident, including, but not limited to, lost work wages, hospital bills, and physical/emotional trauma. The causes of these accidents can include a distracted driver using his cell phone to an intoxicated motorist who shouldn’t be driving on the road in the first place. The circumstances surrounding automobile accidents are not always cut-and-dry, which often leads to issues determining who is responsible for paying for the resulting damages. If you or a loved one is ever involved in a motor vehicle collision, you must immediately contact a skilled personal injury attorney in order to protect every right you have.
