Front-end collisions in Hollywood and across South Florida have a high probability of injuries and even fatalities. All car accidents can lead to an injury, but front-end collisions are especially known for causing lower body injuries, such as the foot injuries, leg and hip injuries and trauma to the spinal column. This is because the force of such a crash is aimed toward the lower body. In some cases, motorists may even find their legs crushed by the impact of the collision.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case.
