Ottawa accident Riverside Drive sends 3 to Ottawa hospital with serious injuries.

Ottawa Injury Lawyers David Hollingsworth and Associates.  3 people have been rushed to an Ottawa hospital as a result of a head-on accident at Riverside Drive and Hincks Lane this morning at approximately 11:00am. One driver, a 37-year-old male was treated for a seizure and personal  injuries and the couple travelling  in the other vehicle were also rushed to the hospital with neck injuries and  chest injuries. Thankfully it was reported in the Ottawa Citizen that all 3 were in stable condition.  I hope that their injuries are not as serious as initially reported and that they are able to recover fully.

Blackburn Hamlet accident results in possible spinal cord injury and severe head injury. Ottawa Lawyer David Hollingsworth and Associates

Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyers David Hollingsworth …A terrible Ottawa 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.

Tragic accident on Dunrobin Road kills Lisa Roesler.

Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth — Tragically, 17 year old  Lisa Roesler was killed on Sunday when her vehicle crashed into a tree on Dunrobin Road near Crown Point Road. When Ottawa Police arrived at the accident scene, Lisa was dead. She was not ejected from the vehicle. The cause of the accident  is under investigation. There was no reason to believe alcohol was a factor in the accident.

Lisa came from a close family. Her father Rob Roesler spoke very highly of his precious daughter.  Lisa loved spending time with her family, including her mother, Colleen, brother Eric, 22, and sister Shannon, 19. Lisa had been celebrating her father’s birthday Saturday night at their house in Fitzroy Harbour. Lisa was at the party and helped  two teenage boys who did not have a drive home because their friend had been drinking and was supposed to be the driver. Lisa stepped up. One of the boys, Daniel Gaudreau who is 15 years old had just met Lisa.  She drove him and his friend to his house in Morgan’s Grant around 5 a.m. Sunday.  Lisa was a soon-to-be Grade 12 honour roll student at Arnprior District High School and wanted to study English Literature at the Concordia University. She was described as a passionate reader and a strong communicator,who was not shy.

Lisa was also an athlete who played many sports including Ontario Youth Soccer League, rugby and hockey to name a few. 

At this terribly tragic and difficult time, my thoughts go out to Lisa family, her large circle of friends and the many lives she touched within the community.  A real loss…

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…..

Ottawa personal injury lawyer David Hollingsworth on distracted driving, seat belts and children car seats.

Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth..The City of Ottawa’s Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) will be focussing on distracted driving in Ottawa and appropriate seat belt and child safety restraint for the month of March to help keep our  Ottawa’s roads safe. I personally want to thank them and think that these initiatives are crucial to educating Ottawa and  helping prevent personal injuries and save lives.

Personal Injuries and Distracted driving in Ottawa Ontario..

From 2008 to 2010, distracted driving was the cause of 6,129 Ottawa accidents.  These Ottawa accidents  resulted in 9 wrongful deaths and 1,976 personal injuries in Ottawa Ontario. This Ottawa personal injuries could have been avoided !

Ottawa Personal Injuries and Seat belt/child safety-

From 2006 to 2010, 26 people died, 50 suffered life-threatening personal injuries and another 202 suffered personal  injuries in Ottawa as a result of not wearing a seat belt or proper child restraint.  20/26 fatalities were male.  These terrible injuries can all be avoid by simply buckling up. Ottawa drivers must ensure everyone’s safety by buckling up and buckling up their children properly. Don’t just think  about it Ottawa, do it !

Ottawa Frost Bite Warning In Effect: Be careful on slippery Ottawa roads and sidewalks: Ottawa lawyer David Hollingsworth

The freezing rain and snow have finally stopped and now a deep cold is setting in throughout Ottawa and eastern Ontario.  Ottawa, Gatineau, Brockville, Cornwall and Smiths Falls were under a snowfall warning until late afternoon, with 15 centimetres or more expected throughout the day. A freezing rain warning was lifted that morning. There were over 60 Ottawa accidents yesterday and reports indicate that some Ottawa accident victims suffered minor injuries.  Police believe that this was due to the fact that Ottawa drivers were slowing down and driving cautiously.  Well done !  Not all accidents can be avoided but this just goes to show that if all drivers out there are driving very carefully we can reduce the number of Ottawa accidents that result in serious personal injury.  To all of you out there who took a little extra time to get to your destination, or drove a little more defensively, congratulations , you did a great job. 

That being said, you job is not done.  There is a frost bite warning in effect in Ottawa. Dropping temperatures and increasing winds today will give us  a -28 C wind chill. This cold cold weather looks like it’s here to stay for the day and will be as lows hit -22 C this evening. Once you add  in the windchill factor and we’re looking at -27 C , according to Environment Canada. In other words, its coooooooooooolllllllldddddddddddddddd. My advice, stay in.  It is supposed to warm up a little tomorrow.  Unfortunately, our Ottawa roads and sidewalks will be slick and slippery. This will make it very challenging for Ottawa drivers, cyclists and pedestrians.

I have to admit, as much as I would like to, I can’t stay in.  We will be out about shuffling our children from hockey rinks to swimming pools. My plan..slow and steady wins the race. We will get to where we need to be , then home for the SENS game..Go Sens go !  Please be safe out there today Ottawa.  Take your time, keep our Ottawa roads as accident free as possible. Have a great, safe weekend.

Ottawa Car Accident Lawyer: Accidents and texting, Ottawa Lawyers

Ottawa Law Firms, Ottawa Ontario Car Accident Lawyer David Hollingsworth….

Car accidents can happen any time, to anyone  and for many reasons that include driver error, mechanical defects and roadway hazards. Unfortunately, many car accidents that I see as an Ottawa Ontario personal injury lawyer are sometimes Ontario accidents caused by the use of handheld devices while driving.

Accidents and Talking on the Phone

I understand that it is tempting to talk on cell phones while driving. Despite that fact that Ontario has banned the use of handheld devices while driving, many people are still using them. Even if you are not talking on a handheld device, the simple act of having a conversation while driving is distracting in and of itself – even if held using a hands-free device. Studies show us that as much as 80% of the population admits to carrying on telephone conversations while driving.  Those same studies show us that as much as 25% of all car accidents list cell phone usage as a contributing factor.  As many as 2600 people die each year as a result of car accidents caused by cell phone use. In additional to those fatal car accidents, another 330,000 suffer personal injuries.

Car Accidents and Texting

The risk of being involved in a serious car accident is even higher when you are texting on a cell phone, iphone or blackberry, not talking. Anything that takes our eyes off the road and causes a distraction can be the precipitating factor in any car accident. While talking on the phone can be distracting, texting clearly takes our eyes off the road. One study showed that for a driver that was sending or receiving a text message, in a six second period, four of those seconds were spent with their eyes off the road. Given the fact that the time frame to recognize and respond to changing road conditions is about two seconds, it is not hard to see why texting can be so dangerous. Distracted driving is by far the most common reason given for car accident causes. Guess what? The use of handheld devices is also the biggest sub-category within distracted driving.

It’s common sense folks, just don’t do it.  You can respond to that email when you are in a safe place and your eyes can focus solely on your phone. It’s not worth the risk !
