Not only are many cars stopped at an intersection and not only do some intersections get quite busy, but intersections often bring out impatience in drivers. It's difficult for some motorists to wait even a few seconds for a stop sign or traffic signal if they are in a hurry. Unfortunately, these factors can and do lead to catastrophic car collisions in Hollywood and other Florida cities.

There are many types of intersection accidents that can occur:
- Head on collisions if a motorist makes a wrong turn
- Sideswipe accidents from motorists trying to pass
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- T-bone accidents
- Rear end accidents if a motorist is not notice a stop sign or red light in time
These types of accidents can lead to fractures, amputations, concussions, soft tissue damage, spinal cord injuries, and even fatalities in Hollywood and other communities. Unfortunately, determining liability after the worst happens can be very challenging, which is one reason why is important to speak with a personal injury attorney in Hollywood or your community very quickly after this type of accident. There is a statute of limitations which requires you to file a legal claim fairly quickly after an accident and in some cases you may miss evidence and documentation if you wait too long to file your claim.
There may be multiple liable parties in an intersection accident. There may be multiple motorists at fault, for example. If road design or road signs are an issue, municipalities or other governments may be held partly to blame. In some cases, intersections are known as high-risk intersections and are known to cause multiple accidents, yet cities fail to act in order to reduce the risk and in order to provide safer areas for pedestrians and for motorists.
