Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyers David Hollingsworth and Associates. I was out visiting a client in Rockland today and as I was driving around Rockland. I couldn’t help but notice how many people were out on their bicycles . That’s great for so so many reasons. We are all excited for spring to arrive and with spring comes more pedestrians, cyclist, motorcycles, ATV etc. I wanted to take a moment and remind everyone of a few things you can do to help keep yourself safe and our Ottawa roads safe.
-The Ottawa Police have a great website that offers the following tips:
-Make sure your helmet is on and fits properly.
-Your bicycle helmet should be snug and not move around.
-Your bicycle helmet should sit two finger-widths above your brows.
-The straps of your helmet should form a V below and around both ears.
-You should not be able to get more than 2 fingers between the chin strap and your chin.
-Ottawa and Ontario cyclists must wear a helmet by law if they are under 18 years of age.
-Do not wear a hat under a helmet. This is not safe.
-Helmets only reduce personal injuries, they do not prevent accidents from happening.
-Do not use a helmet that has already been in an accident.
-All bicycle helmets need to be CSA, CPSC, Snell B-95, or a N-94 certification sticker.
-Remember that motorists and cyclists share the roadways.
-Cyclists must also follow the rules of the road. The Ontario Highway Traffic Act, the Ottawa Traffic and Ottawa Parking Bylaw state that cyclists:
-Stop at all stop signs and stop at red lights, and properly signal any changes in lanes.
-Ottawa cyclists must remain on the right side of the road
-Do not ride your bicycle on sidewalks.
-Have a bell, gong, or horn on your bicycle.
-If you are riding at night, make sure your bicycle is well lit.
Please be safe out there. Ottawa has had far too many bicycle accidents and we all need to obey the rules of the road. Have a great and happy spring on your bicycle Ottawa !

Head Injury Lawyers Ottawa Ontario- David Hollingsworth and Associates. Well Ottawa, we still find ourselves in a winter wonderland and more snow is coming. This is certainly not the time to let up on winter safety. I wanted to remind every one of the dangers of not wearing a helmet. Please also ensure your children are well protected when they are skating and tobogganing. In 2012, the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario treated 1,270 children with a head injury, 41 of these head injuries were due to a tobogganing accident. These accidents are going to happen but with the proper protection, these injuries can be eliminated. It may seem extreme to some but trust me: as an Ottawa personal injury lawyer I meet daily with clients who have a brain injury and their lives have been altered forever. If there is a step you can take to protect your head or your child’s head; why wouldn’t you ? I urge EVERYONE to wear a helmet when participating in any activity that could lead to a head injury. Have fun and be safe !

David Hollingsworth and Associates-I’m so pleased with this initiative. The Ottawa Public Health and CHEO have joined forces to promote the use of helmets during winter activities. Ottawa’s neurosurgeon Dr. Michael Vassilyadi attended the family day event at Ottawa’s city hall family day skating party to talk to parents to lead by example and wear their helmets ! He talked about how parents need to lead by example and how they are ambassadors and that kids look up to their parents and copy what they do. I couldn’t agree more. We need to practice what we preach. Dr. Vassilyadi also spoke about how more families are taking the necessary precautions and wearing helmets for winter activities, such as skating and tobogganing. Dr. Vassilyadi also stated that there has been a decline in preventable head injuries in the Ottawa area, stating that there hadn’t been one surgical head injury until mid-January this season. While one is too many at least we are moving in the right direction. I hope these messages reach others and before we know it wearing a helmet for winter activities will be an automatic response for everyone. Lead by example and put your helmet on ! If not for you, do it for your children.
