Accident in Blackburn Hamlet

Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth …

A terrible Blackburn Hamlet accident has left a 17 year old girl and a 20 year old man with serious personal injuries Sunday night. The accident occurred on the westbound Blackburn Hamlet Bypass. The accident happened just before 7 p.m. on Sunday night between Navan Road and Innes Road. Once the car left the road, it hit a large cement pole and ejected both victims. The girl was rushed to the CHEO and treated for spinal cord injuries. She remains at the Children Hospital of Eastern Ontario in serious condition. The driver also suffered serious injuries including several serious head injuries. He was rushed to The Ottawa Hospital’s Civic campus Trauma Centre and is  listed in critical condition.  I wish them both complete recoveries. My thoughts go out to these 2 young people, their recovery, their family and their friends at this very stressful and difficult time.

Ottawa Spinal Injury Lawyer

A spinal cord injury is considered to be a catastrophic injury and requires extensive support, therapy, rehabilitation and compensation.  In most cases, when someone has suffered a spinal cord injury, the chances of a full recovery are not strong and typically there is  some form of paralysis that remains and is life-altering for the injured and their family.
