There were approximately 149,728 people living in Hollywood as of the year 2015, so Hollywood is a relatively large City. In fact, it is currently the twelfth biggest City in the State of Florida.
The City of Hollywood was founded in 1921 and incorporated as a City in 1925. It grew quickly in population in the 1950’s and 1960’s.
The City of Hollywood is governed by a City Commission and run by a City Manager. Hollywood has a Mayor, a Vice Mayor, five City Commissioners, and a City Clerk.
Lawsuits against the City are referred to as cases of “sovereign immunity” and must be approved by the City Commission. Sovereign immunity cases have restrictions such as notice requirements and limitations such as caps on damages. That is, lawsuits against a city, county or the State can typically only result in up to $200,000 in compensation – unless “claims bill” legislation is passed in the State Legislature in Tallahassee.
Hollywood’s nickname is “Diamond of the Gold Coast.” The City was named after Hollywood, California and was originally intended to be a motion picture center. The original name of the City was “Hollywood by the Sea.” The City has eight sister cities.
There are eight zip codes in the City of Hollywood. There are approximately 30.73 square miles in the City. Included in that is 3.45 square miles of water.

24.9 percent of homes in Hollywood include children. 21.3 % of the City’s population is made up of children. There are 32 public and charter schools in the City of Hollywood and 13 private schools. These include four high schools, five public charter schools, six public middle schools, fourteen public elementary schools, and twenty four private schools.
Hollywood is therefore a very family/kid friendly City. Mr. Quackenbush represents children in their personal injury cases. When a minor is injured in an accident, it is typically the child’s parents who must step in and act as the technical “Plaintiffs” and bring the suit. Once the lawsuit has been settled, the settlement must frequently be approved by a judge, and these settlements are oftentimes in the form of a “structured settlement” – in which payments are made in regular installments once the child reaches the age of majority.
17.3 percent of Hollywood’s population is made up of people over the age of 65. As elderly people can become more vulnerable as they age, Mr. Quackenbush represents the elderly in their nursing home neglect and elderly abuse cases.
The median income for a household in Hollywood was $40,714 as of the year 2000, and the median income for a family was $55,849. The City’s per capita income was $22,097. When somebody is injured in an accident, frequently they are not able to work after the accident. If this is the case in your situation, Mr. Quackenbush may pursue a “lost wage” claim and attempt to get you reimbursed for your losses. If it’s anticipated that you won’t be able to work in the future, Mr. Quackenbush may make a “loss of future earning capacity” claim.
As future lost wages are speculative, they can be difficult to determine. As such, Mr. Quackenbush may hire a vocational rehabilitation expert to evaluate you and your job and determine what type of work, if any, you will be able to do in the future. He may also hire an expert called an “economist” to try to quantify the amount of loss wages you will experience in the future.Client Compensation Gained by this Hollywood Personal Injury Law Firm
