Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth…A terrible Ottawa accident has left Shannon Kelly with severe personal injuries but thankfully she survived. The 18-year-old student at the University of Ottawa was out with several friends and left a party in Orleans on Saturday night. that’s when things went sideways. As a result of the Ottawa accident , Shannon Kelly now has a fractured sternum, lacerations to her forehead, back pain, stitches in her eyebrow, a lot of swelling.
Shannon is sending out an important message to us all. She g0t into a car with someone who had been drinking. She wasnt fully aware of how much or whether or not the driver had been drinking. She assumed it was fine and got into the car. A decision she now regrets. Thankfully she survived. A lesson for us all. 4 people were injured in the car. One of them was initially in critical condition but now thankfully appears to be making a recovery. This accident could have had very different results.
The accident occurred near Navan on Innes Road near Frank Kenny Road when it rolled over several times. Paramedics received a 911 call at around 1:20 am. Witnesses to the accident said that the car was travelling at least 160 km/h when it passed them as they drove along Innes Road. The speed limit is 80 km/h along that stretch of road.. The driver was a friend of Shannon’s. He is now facing criminal charges. She does not blame him for the choices she made. James McCarthy, who is 20 years old is being charged with 2 counts of impaired driving causing bodily harm.
Shannon’s story serves as a reminder to us all. Yes, she has suffered some very serious injuries but she is alive and so are her friends thankfully. To all the kids out there, please learn from this story..You can always call a cab, your parents, a friend or sleep over. You cannot get into a car with someone who has been drinking. It’s not an option. As a parent of three, this story also resonates with me….

Ottawa Boating Accident Lawyer , Kingston Accident Lawyer David Hollingsworth ..Sadly, an Ottawa area boating accident claimed 2 lives Friday morning on the St. Lawrence River, off Howe Island, part of the Thousand Islands system, located between Kingston and Gananoque.
4 men were boating on the St. Lawrence River near the east end of Howe Island when one man fell off the bow seat of the boat as it was making a turn. 2 of the other passengers jumped in to try to save him. Tragically, only one of them survived. a short time after, the two men involved in the Kingston boating accident ,aged 35 and 40, were pulled from the river and taken to area hospital where sadly, they later died as a result of the personal injuries suffered during the boating accident. Many other boats in the area attempted to help but unfortunately, they could not. My thoughts go out to the friends and family of these 2 men.
The warmer summer months are here and our lakes and rivers are full of motorboats, sailboats, jet skis, sea doos and other watercraft. Unfortunately, a large number of Ontario residents suffer serious personal injuries in Ontario boating accidents each summer. Please be careful out there as a boating driver, boating passenger and as a swimmer !

Ottawa Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth, Ottawa Bicycle Accident Lawyer. Did you know that bicycle helmets can prevent up to 88 % of brain injuries when used properly?
Earlier this month, Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson announced June 5, 2011 as Helmet Day in the City of Ottawa to support the avoidance of personal injuries and to emphasize the importance of wearing proper safety head gear while being active.
“We are very fortunate in Ottawa to have an environment that is well-suited to cycling and in-line skating,” said the Mayor . He made it clear how supportive he was of an active, but safe lifestyle. “We are encouraging all residents to purchase an appropriate helmet before enjoying their favourite summer activities.”
We all know how important it is whether we are riding a bicycle or strapping on in-line skates to take safety precautions to protect ourselves; however, we don’t always do. The awareness is there and still coming , but not everyone is strapping on a helmet and some are strapping on helmets that are inadequate and would not protect them. The City of Ottawa continues to make efforts to keep residents safe and raise awareness of helmet safety in the hopes of preventing severe head injuries.
How do help reduce your chances of a severe head injury:
1-Make sure there is a CSA or CPSC certification on the helmet.
2-All helmets should fit level and square on the head, and the front should be 2 fingers distance from the helmet to eyebrows. The helmet straps should be adjusted to meet just below the ear in a V shape, and fastened comfortably.
3-All helmets should have a snug fit, allowing only one finger between the chin strap and your chin.
4-Proper helmets must be worn by all cyclists who are under the age of 18. I recommend that EVERYONE should wear a helmet to protect themselves from serious head injuries.
Each year, approximately 5,700 Ottawa area children under the age of 20 visit Ottawa hospital emergency rooms for serious head injuries. Sport activities make up a large percentage of head injuries among children and youth.
As an Ontario injury lawyer, I meet regularly with Ontario accident victims who have suffered severe head injuries and their lives have been altered forever. I urge everyone to please equip themselves with a proper helmet. It could save your life !
Ottawa Area Water Accident..The family of Hay Mu Tha Kyu and students at Glebe Collegiate Institute are mourning the loss of one of their own. The school was mourning Hay Mu Tha Kyu, 15, who jumped off a cliff into Charleston Lake while out swimming with friends Saturday and didn’t surface. His body was found yesterday afternoon.
Hay Mu Tha Kyu is remembered as an energetic boy and a talented basketball and volleyball teammate. Hay Mu Tha Kyu was very popular at Glebe Collegiate and had a large circle of friends. Some of his friends reported to the Ottawa Citizen that people were drawn to him . Hay Mu Tha Kyu was a young boy when his family fled war in Burma to a refugee camp in Mae La Oon, Thailand. That’s where another friend, Pahgalay Kyu, 18, got to know him. Pahgalay Kyu became friends with Hay Mu Tha Kyu during the years they spent at the refugee camp. Once both families came to Canada, their friendship continued, and they spoke daily through text messaging.
Kyu had been swimming with two other young males when he jumped off the rock cliff at about 6:45 p.m. Saturday and never resurfaced. His family was there when the body was recovered.
This very sad accident serves as a reminder to us all that we are not invincible and accidents can happen at any time. Please enjoy this summer and all this beautiful weather, BUT BE SAFE !! My thoughts go out to everyone who was touched by Hay Mu Tha Kyu, especially his family.

Chances are unless you’ve been in an Ontario car accident , you do not know and may never need to know what accident benefits are. Did you know that you’re entitled to benefits regardless of who caused the car accident? Are you aware of all your accident benefit entitlements? If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, it’s important to know and protect your rights.
How can a personal injury lawyer help with accident benefits?
In Ontario, victims of motor vehicle accidents can obtain accident benefits through their own Ontario insurance company. Ontario law states that an accident victim needs to file an Application for Accident Benefits within 30 days of the Ontario car accident. Once the claim has been filed, there are several steps that need to be followed in order to ensure that you receive the maximum compensation you are entitled to. The process is complicated and stressful and unfortunately it comes at the worst time in your life; after an accident. You are suffering from your injuries and are faced with some complicated paperwork. A good Ontario personal injury lawyer can help you right from the start by helping you navigate the complicated and arduous process of filing an Ontario Accident Benefits claim and ensure you are properly covered and compensated for moving forward. Good personal injury lawyers will facilitate the process from start to finish and work with your Ontario insurance company to ensure your rights are protected. You could be entitled to Income Replacement Benefits, Housekeeping, Attendant Care Benefits, Medical and Rehabilitation Benefits, and possible more.
David Hollingsworth has a team in place that help his clients solely with their accident benefits applications. He and his team immediately put accident victims at ease by removing a huge and stressful burden allowing them to focus on what they should be focussing on; themselves, their recovery and their family. If you have suffered from an Ontario car accident, call David for a free consultation and an explanation of the Accident Benefits system, even if you’ve already submitted the Application for Accident Benefits; he would be happy to discuss your ongoing claim with you and share his insights with Ontario personal injury law and accident benefits compensation.
