Car Accidents

Broussard is a small city in Lafayette and St. Martin parishes in the U.S. state of Louisiana. The population was 8,302 from the 2011 Census.

As it is now part of the Lafayette Metropolitan Statistical Area, Broussard was founded in 1884. It was named after Valsin Broussard, a prominent local merchant, who formed the first Vigilante Committee when his own store was robbed.

Broussard has gone from a horse and buggy community, with large sugarcane plantation homes, to a current day industrial community with over 300 businesses. It was designated a city in November 2002. Yet, one still experiences its charm though the atmosphere of elegant Creole home cooking and cajun food at the local restaurants.
