Ottawa Motorcycle Accident Lawyers David Hollingsworth and Associates. With the nice weather here, more and more motorcycles will be out on the roads and highway. We hope that all drivers are extra cautious and watching out for motorcycles that may be in your blind spot . Obviously motorcycles are much smaller than cars or trucks and are often more difficult to see.
Ottawa Police along with Safer Roads Ottawa and the Ontario Ministry of Transportation are working at reducing Ottawa motorcycle accidents by introducing their ”Keep an Eye Out for Motorcycles” campaign. The main messages of the campaign is for motorists to share the roads and watch out for one another. Ottawa has also announced that May will be ”Motorcycle Awareness and Safety Month” .
As a Ottawa personal injury lawyer I meet regularly with people who have been in a motorcycle accident and have become severely injured. The reality is that motorcycle drivers have much less protection and often the injuries are devastating. Both motorists and motorcyclist need to share the road and be aware of one another.
Here are a few tips for drivers when it comes to motorcycles:
- Motorcycles require full lane and are no different than other vehicles.
- Share the road
- Follow at least 2 seconds or 2 chevrons behind the vehicle in front of you.
- Most motorcycle accidents happen between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m., so be extra vigilant during these times.
- Over 1/3 of motorcycle accident happen at intersections. Be extra vigilant.
- Slow down at intersections.
- Avoid tailgating as this can be more dangerous to motorcyclists with less protection.
- Give motorcyclists enough room to change lanes. Although they are smaller, they still need room.
- Check mirrors often so you know where other vehicles are.
We can all put a little more effort into keeping our Ottawa roads a little safer. Motorcyclists and drivers have their role to play. Let’s play together and keep our Ottawa roads safe.

What a terrible and tragic start to Easter weekend. Sadly, 2 young university students died on their way home from Trent University to visit their families for Easter. 4 other people also suffered serious personal injuries last night after a terrible accident in Beckwith Township, close to Lanark. The accident took place on Richmond Road, just south of Carleton Place and involved 2 vehicles. Tragically 21-year-old Madeleine Havelock and 22-year-old Thomas Guerette were found trapped in their car and pronounced dead at accident scene. They were travelling with a 21-year-old woman who suffered a severe pelvic fracture and a serious head injury. She remains in critical condition. I hope she is able to fully recover from this devastating accident. I’m so sorry for the Havelock and Guerette families who have lost their children, who had bright futurs ahead. This is a terrible, terrible tragedy.
3 others people were also injured. A 23-year-old man driving suffered a shoulder injury, while his passengers suffered serious personal injuries. One had severe abdominal injuries and a 16-year-old suffered serious injuries to his back and shoulders. They were rushed to the Carleton Place Hospital.

Ottawa accident highway 401 and highway 416 sends 2 to hospital with hip injury, pelvis injury, shoulder injury and severe leg fracture.
Posted by Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer, Ottawa Accident Lawyer, David Hollingsworth in Accident Benefits Insurance Claims, Ottawa Car Accidents on March 17th, 2013
Ottawa Injury Lawyers David Hollingsworth . An accident on Highway 401, east of Brockville Friday resulted in a 20 car pileup accident and left two people with serious personal injuries. The accident occurred close to Maitland and the 416 split. Although the snow storm only lasted 5 minutes, it caused a lot of damage and injury. Cars and tractor trailers were swerving all over the highway and one tractor trailer caught flames. Given the number of vehicles involved in the accident, it’s no wonder there were not more injuries. Ottawa paramedics reported that a 68 year old woman suffered a hip injury, pelvis injury and shoulder injuries. They also reported that a 33 year old man suffered a fractured leg.
Thankfully many drivers were able to pullover to safety as the intense snow storm began. There is no doubt that this helped in keeping the number of injured down to 2. The Ottawa Police and the Ontario Provincial Police are investigating the accident. I am so thankful no one died and I hope that the 2 people who did suffer personal injury are able to recover fully from this terrible accident.
