More fatal car accidents happen at night than at any other time of the day, even though there are far fewer cars on the road during the night. Nighttime car collisions bring extra risks and can make it harder for you to make a claim. If you’ve been in this kind of crash, don’t hesitate: contact Flaxman Law Group for a free consultation with a Hollywood car accident claims lawyer. Let’s discuss your potential case and what it may be worth.
Florida has about 12,592 bridges, and while these help us get to and from Hollywood, Miami, and other communities, accidents on these structures have unique risks. There are fewer places to go on a bridge, for example and it can be harder to get out of the way to avoid a crash.
If you’ve been in a collision on one of Florida’s many bridges, chances are you’ve suffered serious injury, or your car has sustained significant damage. In these situations, we invite you to contact us at Flaxman Law Group. Our family-founded law firm would be pleased to offer you a free consultation with a Hollywood car accident attorney, so you can learn more about your rights.
Recent polls have put Sunshine State drivers as among the top five worst in the nation. It’s not exactly the “top five” Florida would like to be in. A high rate of car accidents not only causes suffering and loss of life, but it also increases insurance rates and driving anxiety for everyone.
Here are some reasons why accidents happen in South Florida—and how you can reduce your risk:
Despite a name that could be ominous to non-Florida residents, Alligator Alley is a popular 80-mile stretch of road for both tourists and residents traveling to Miami Beach and driving between Fort Lauderdale and Naples. Built in 1968, Alligator Alley is a toll road that runs through the everglades and is part of I-75.
Because the everglades stretch on both sides of Alligator Alley, the scenery is stunning. However, there are also few services along this part of the I-75 and as the name suggests, there is a significant amount of wildlife, which contributes to car accidents along this corridor. While the roadside is fenced off, car crashes still do happen. Here’s how to reduce your risk:
While many car crashes in Florida are caused by human error, the design of roadways also plays a significant role in preventing car accidents. In many cases, those who are injured in road crashes don’t even realize that the design of the area they were traveling in may have contributed to their collision.

Pedestrian accidents in Florida continue to be a pressing issue, resulting in devastating injuries and loss of life. At Flaxman Law Group, our pedestrian accident attorneys work with individuals whose lives have been forever changed by negligent drivers.
Pedestrian accidents occur when a person on foot is involved in a collision with a motor vehicle, bicycle, motorcycle, or other vehicle. Unfortunately, pedestrians are particularly vulnerable, since they lack the protection afforded by a vehicle’s safety features. They are more likely to suffer fatalities and serious injuries.
Roundabouts are designed to reduce traffic congestion and make our roads safer. Florida has adopted them widely, so there are about 300 roundabouts on Florida roads and 20 on highways across the state. Unlike intersections, roundabouts don’t use road signs and full stops. Instead, drivers yield right of way, improving the flow of traffic.
While studies have shown that roundabouts reduce the risk of accidents, motorists are sometimes intimidated by them and aren’t sure how to drive safely through a roundabout. We’ve created this guide to help you.
Work zones include road work sites, construction job sites, and other temporary project areas where construction workers, contractors, and other professionals are building infrastructure or structures or are fixing them.
Work zones are a considerable risk for workers. In 2020 alone, 117 workers sustained fatal injuries on highway work sites. They also pose a risk of car accidents for those just passing through these areas.
Wrong way accidents are a type of head-on crash in Hillsboro Beach that can often be fatal. It’s hard to prepare yourself for a car suddenly coming at you at full speed and there may not be time to get out of the way.
Fortunately, there are things we can all do to prevent wrong-way collisions.
