Gretna is on the west bank of the Mississippi River, just 10 minutes from downtown New Orleans. It is part of the New Orleans-Metairie-Kenner Metropolitan area and has a population of 17,736. Its first settlers were Germans, and in the early days, the city was known then as “Mechanicsham.”
Gretna is the birthplace of the famous spice company Zatarain, well known for its Creole and Cajun spice products. Today, several companies in the construction, manufacturing, accommodations, and retail trade industries support Gretna’s bustling economy. Its tourist attractions include the German American Cultural Center, Bellevue Park, Mel Ott Park, and the West Side Shopping Center.
Just as in other towns, accidents happen in Gretna: on the road, at work, in the supermarket, restaurant, and shopping malls, even in someone’s home. As well, Gretna has its share of auto accidents that have caused injuries to drivers, passengers, and pedestrians.
Workers, too, are exposed to safety risks, and the risk of danger can be higher for those employed in the construction and building industry. Consumers using everyday items can experience injury as a result of defective products – including medical-related ones such as metal-on-metal hip implants, and pharmaceuticals.
