Acadia Parish Accident Attorney

Acadia Parish was founded in 1886, from parts of St. Landry Parish. Later, Crowley was made the parish seat, narrowly beating out Rayne and Prairie Hayes in an election, respectively by 138 and 179 votes. The parish borrows its name from the name of a former French-Canadian colony, also called Acadia. The French settlers of Acadia, the Acadians, were among the very first people to colonize the Louisiana territories after displacement by British occupation of Canada.

In 2017, Acadia Parish saw over 730 people injured by accidents involving motor vehicles, putting it at 39th out of 64 Louisiana parishes. Additionally, 9 people died across 7 fatal crashes. Due to a high volume of commercial traffic, Acadia Parish sees a significant amount of congestion and collisions. You can view detailed information about crash statistics in Acadia here.
