The City of Monroe lies along the Ouachita River and is the parish seat of Ouachita. It has approximately 49,000 people and a land area of 28.7 square miles. Monroe is the birthplace and former headquarters of Delta Airlines. It is also known for being the home of Joseph Augustus Biedenharn, Coca Cola’s first bottler. In 1890, Biedenharn opened the Ouachita Coca Cola Bottling plant which ushered in the entry and growth of other businesses in the city. Today, the retail and health care industries are major drivers of the city’s economy.
Monroe is also popular for its tourist attractions such as the Biedenharn Museum and Gardens which used to be the residence of the Coca Cola bottler. You can also find the Louisiana Purchase Gardens and Zoo which has over 500 animals and offers leisurely activities such as boat rides and other seasonal events. The City of Monroe also has a wide array of local restaurants, unique shops, and parks.
When someone’s negligence causes injury
Just like any urban area with dense populations, motorists, passengers and pedestrians in Monroe City face car accident risks every day. In fact, 2011 data shows that 11 vehicles were involved in fatal car crashes.
Accidents arising from motor vehicle crashes or other types of mishap can cause serious injuries and death, and injuries sustained through an accident can dramatically disrupt lives. If you are injured in an accident, you should seek immediate medical attention. It is important to understand that if you hit your head during an accident, your head or brain injuries may lead to long-term disability.
Tort law in the state of Louisiana provides legal remedies for those injured in accidents. However, you’ll need professional advice and assistance in assessing your case, gathering evidence, negotiating a favorable settlement and preparing an airtight case that can win an action for damages in court.
