plaquemine PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER
Initially settled by the Chitimacha, Plaquemine was settled by Europeans by 1775 and was named after the Native American word “Plakemine”, which means persimmon. Thanks to its location at a junction between the Mississippi River and Bayou Plaquemine, the village was able to grow quickly and became incorporated as a town in 1838. Since then, the city has been the seat of Iberville Parish and the populace has remained around seven thousand for several decades. But such a peaceful city does see it’s fair share of accidents every once in a while. And when these occur, you need to be ready to take the next steps.
