HOLLYWOOD MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS
Hollywood, the 12th largest city in Florida, is located in the southeastern part of Broward County along the Atlantic coastline. With a population of over 140,000, this growing community is bordered by Fort Lauderdale and Dania Beach to the north, Davie, Cooper City, and Pembroke Pines to the west, and Miramar, West Park, Pembroke Park, and Hallandale Beach to the south. With over 40 percent of the city’s population consisting of single individuals, Hollywood has a higher number of Motorcycle accidents than many smaller, more family-oriented communities in the region.
FLORIDA ROADS AND MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS
With many commuters and tourists traveling the roadways in Hollywood, motorcycle accidents are an unfortunate likelihood. Motorcyclists are frequently victims of accidents caused by inattentive and/or negligent drivers, including drunk drivers as well as those texting and driving, merging aggressively, failing to signal lane changes and speeding. While all traffic accidents have the potential to cause injury, victims of Motorcycle accidents are more likely to sustain devastating injuries, permanent disability, or death because of the lack of protections such as a solid frame, seatbelts, and airbags. Florida accident statistics show that those involved in Motorcycle accidents account for a higher percentage of brain injuries, broken bones, paralysis and fatality than those inside vehicles at the time of an accident.
Statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that more than 100,000 motorcycle riders are injured or killed in motorcycle accidents across the country annually. In Florida alone, motorcycle accidents result in an average of over 7,000 injuries each year, and hundreds of tragic fatalities. The consequences of these injuries – or deaths – to accident victims and their families can be devastating.
