People take public transportation in order to save money, in order to save the environment, and in order to avoid a car accident and the traffic congestion that is common in Hollywood and other cities. While public transportation is safer, however, negligence on the part of public transportation companies and drivers can still lead to bus accidents in Hollywood as well as other types of public transit accidents across South Florida.

Any time you take public transportation, you expect that your fare provides a safe driver as well as policies that ensure your safety. Unfortunately, in some cases public transportation companies take risks or cut costs in order to become more profitable. In some cases, drivers drive distracted or take other risks that lead to accidents.Injuries in Public Transit Accidents
Accidents on public transportation can be even more devastating for number of reasons:
- There are multiple passengers, leading to a collision between passengers during an accident
- The size and force of public transportation vehicles is considerable and larger than a passenger car
- There are usually no airbags, seatbelts, and other safety measures that are in a passenger car
- There are usually loose items on board, such as briefcases and backpacks, which can become airborne in an accident and cause additional injuries
