Ottawa motorcycle accident: Funeral for Mike Jefferies and serious personal injury for Sandra Jefferies.

Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth…update: 100s are expected to gather for a memorial service at the Biker’s Church to share wonderful stories about  avid biker Mike Jefferies. His son Barry had once said he would never ride a motorcycle again but is doing what his heart tells him and that’s what his dad would have told him.  Get back on the bike, and he is, in honour of his beloved father. A motorcycle procession is planned for tomorrow ( Saturday) in tribute to Mike Jefferies before his funeral.

Sadly, 54-year-old Mike Jeffries yesterday afternoon doing what he loved to do: riding his motorcycle. Mike Jefferies died after an accident  on St. Laurent Boulevard, north of the Queensway shortly after 3 o’clock in the afternoon. Ottawa paramedics found him in cardiac arrest at the  Ottawa motorcycle accident scene. 

An off-duty paramedic, who happened to be nearby when the accident took place, managed to revive Jefferies using cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) at the scene. He later died in hospital.

Mike Jefferies’ pastor spoke highly of him as described him as generous and thoughtful. He also said they would remember Mike at a service on Thursday. Jefferies’ wife, 53-year-old Sandra Jefferies, was also on the motorcycle at the time of the Ottawa motorcycle accident. She was taken to an hospital in serious condition but was expected to be released.  Ottawa police were investigating but had not made any arrests as of Saturday at about 10 p.m. Jefferies had one son, Barry, who is in his 20s. My thoughts go out to the friends and family of Mike Jeffries and I wish his wife a full recovery…..

How to prevent motorcycle accidents..Ottawa lawyer David Hollingsworth

Ottawa Ontario Personal Injury Lawyer…www.ottawainjury.ca  It’s that time of year again when we will start seeing more and more motorcycles on our Ontario roads. Motorcycle drivers are much less protected on their vehicles and therefore need to take all safety steps possible to prevent accidents and personal injury. As well, all drivers need to be aware that we share our Ontario roads with motorcycles, bicycles and other vehicles. 

Thankfully Transport Canada has reported that the rate of deaths related to motor vehicle is slowly declining; however, the rate of motorcycle fatalities is on the rise. There are many possible reasons why this may be so.  There may be more motorcycles on the roads. Motorcycle riders between the ages of 45 to 54 are the most common ages amongst motorcycle drivers.

Ontario motorcycle helmet use has improved. Unfortunately3.1 % of motorcycle riders still drive their motorcycles without one. Head injuries are still the leading cause of deaths involving motorcycle accidents and motorcycle drivers without a helmet are 40% more likely to suffer a fatal head injury, and also 15% more likely to suffer serious personal injuries. A study that was previously done indicated that helmets saved 1,800 lives of motorcycle riders involved in accidents in 2007.

Please drive and ride safely  …
