YOU NEED TO HIRE AN ATTORNEY IF YOU ARE INJURED IN HOLLYWOOD DUE TO NEGLIGENCE
Located south of Fort Lauderdale and north of Aventura, Hollywood is approximately 30 square miles in size and is home to 143,000 people. With seven golf courses, sixty parks and seven miles of beaches, there is plenty to do in Broward County’s third largest municipality. Luxury hotels like the Westin Diplomat, Trump and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino make this a popular spot for vacationers as well as locals. Unfortunately, as the population grows and the number of cars on the road increase, so do the accidents in Hollywood, FL.

COMMON FACTORS AND CAUSES OF CAR ACCIDENTS IN HOLLYWOOD
- Outdated and defective roadways: This can include roads that are defectively designed, highways that have not been maintained, debris, improper grading, and potholes.
- All of the road construction: a person does not have to travel far to run into roads that are being worked on. As inconvenient and distracting as road construction might seem, it is something that needs to be done in order to have safe and updated roadways. Unfortunately, construction sites have also caused accidents for drivers as well as construction workers. Construction sites can throw drivers out of their element with several factors including detours, unclear lane or pavement markings, uneven road conditions, decreased visibility, lack of warning signs, construction debris and inaccurately placed warning signs.
- The unfamiliarity of roadways: People who are unfamiliar with the city of Hollywood can easily find themselves confused and distracted by the construction detours and outdated roadways. Areas like Young Circle and Circle Drive only add to confusion for someone who does not know where they are going.
- Drinking and driving: There is no denying that there is a lot to do in Hollywood, FL. People can spend the day on the beach, enjoy the famous boardwalk and maybe stay at the Diplomat. Another popular destination is the Hollywood Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. With all of its restaurants, lounges, bars, and clubs, it is no surprise that this city continues to rise on the list of things to do in Broward County. Unfortunately, people can become intoxicated and get behind the wheel of their vehicle. Whether we like it or not, we often share the roads with drunk drivers when traveling to and from these hotspots. Drinking and driving is a danger to tourists and residents.
Being involved in a car accident is bad enough. Not taking action and losing the rights to seek compensation for the accident you are a victim of is even worse. Contact the Hollywood accident attorneys of Madalon Law for your free consultation and more information.
