Vermilion Parish Accident Injury Attorney

Vermilion Parish (Paroisse de Vermillon) is a parish located in the U.S. state of Louisiana. As of the 2013 census, the population was 59,253. The parish seat is Abbeville. The parish was founded in 1844.

Vermilion Parish is part of the Lafayette, LA Metropolitan Statistical Area.

In the past several decades, much of the southern portion of the parish has been swept away by water erosion, especially after Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita in 2005. Steps must now be taken to ensure that much more of the parish does not erode later on.

French, Spanish, enslaved Africans, and French-Canadians from Acadia expelled after the Seven Years’ War won by Great Britain, had all entered the area by the end of the 18th century. As the population became mostly Cajun, the primary language was French for years. In the mid- to late 19th century, they were joined by European Americans; immigrants from Italy, recruited to work on the plantations, as well as Jewish immigrants from Germany and eastern Europe, who tended to settle in towns and become merchants.
