Ottawa Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth…A terrible Ottawa accident resulted in a 2 1/2 year old girl being rushed to the Queensway Carleton Hospital  in critical condition after she was hit in Ottawa east  end by a minivan on Cymbeline Drive. She was later transferred to CHEO. Ottawa Police arrived around 2:30 p.m. to the accident scene in the 0 to 100 block of Cymbeline Drive, in Bells Corners, close to the intersection of Moodie Drive and Robertson Road. The toddler had been walking with her mother, who was pushing a stroller,  when she was struck. The toddler was unconscious when rescue crews arrived and had life-threatening head injury, chest injury , leg injury and severe internal injuries. Ottawa Police are still investigating this terrible Ottawa accident . My thoughts go out to this family at this terribly difficult time.  My thoughts are with this little girl and her FULL recovery.  I’m also thinking of her parents at this time.  … As a father of three young children myself, I am her sending her hope and strength…

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 Bicycle Accident Lawyer David Hollingsworth on Ottawa cycling safety.

Ottawa Bicycle Accident Lawyer David Hollingsworth.. I recently found a great website : Citizens for Safe Cycling . It’s a website dedicated to Ottawa cyclists.  It is filled with all sorts of information that relate to Ottawa bicycle safety, events for Ottawa cyclists and Ottawa cycling news and projects.  One of the articles on the site dealt with cyclists getting “doored”. The following are tips I found on this site for both Ottawa drivers and Ottawa cyclists on avoiding a cycling accident.

Ottawa Cyclists:

One of the safest ways to avoid an accident is to ride your bicycle at least one metre away from other vehicles. That is the best way to prevent getting injured by having a door open in your face. A car door can spring open in a second. If a cyclist is passing by at that very moment, it’s almost impossible avoiding being hit by the door, resulting in you. This type of bicycle accident is far to common in Ottawa and a major cause of downtown cycling accidents. These cycling accidents can be avoided.

Ottawa drivers and Ottawa cycling accidents:

Everyone is responsible on the road.  As a driver, you are responsible for checking for oncoming  traffic. This includes cyclists. They are much smaller than a car and therefore harder to see; however, before opening your car door, you must thoroughly check for any oncoming traffic.  If you fail to do so and it results in an accident, you will be charged under section 165 of the Highway Traffic Act.

Ottawa cyclists and Ottawa cycling accidents:  

The best way to avoid a cycling accident is to remain out of the door zone which about one metre away from a car. Also cyclist should avoid passing on the right if there’s not enough space to pass. Cyclist should always use  extra space in the lane in order to stay away from the cars, even if it means that you hold up traffic or force them to pass you outside of the lane. If you need to move left to do this, remember to always signal and shoulder check first.

It’s practically impossible for cyclists to see ahead of time whether a vehicle door is going  to open. Tinted windows and high headrests make it extremely difficult to see from behind if a car is occupied, and a door could fly open at any given moment.

Cycling is such a great activity and means of transportation around Ottawa.  Let’s all work to gether to reduce the number of Ottawa cycling accidents and deaths related to cycling accidents this spring and summer. Happy and safe cycling Ottawa !

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 personal injury lawyer supporting Ontario pedestrian accident study.

As an Ottawa accident lawyer and Ontario personal injury lawyer, I am very pleased with the recent announcement that a new study into pedestrian deaths will be done by the Ontario Coroner’s Office. The Ontario pedestrian study is calling for Ontario residents to offer personal insight into pedestrian deaths.  This brings relief to not only myself, but many families and friends who have lost a loved one in an Ontario pedestrain accident or whose loved ones have suffered serious injury such as a brain injury, spinal cord injury or broken bones. The study will hopefully reveal what many already know…we need to make our pathways safer. Some are calling for more protected, better marked pedestrian walkways on busy roadways. The Ottawa Police are also anticipating the study will help identify trends and predictors to the fatal Ottawa collisions.

Sadly, to date in 2011, 7 Ottawa pedestrians were killed in Ottawa accidents, the same number as in all of 2010. This is tragic! Not to mention that many other pedestrian accidents result in serious personal injury. The Ottawa pedestrain accident statistics are very disturbing. In 2010  there were 390 pedestrians who suffered serious personal injury in Ottawa accidents. The goal of the coroner’s probe is to identify common factors in the wrongful deaths and to make recommendations to avoid future pedestrian accidents in Ontario. The study aims to look at accident trends across Ontario, education needs, enforcement needs , engineering through cities and municipalities.  The Ontario coroner’s office review will focus on deaths from 2010, with the report scheduled for release in spring 2012. In my opinion, as an Ottawa accident lawyer, this report can’t come soon enough !

The following are some statistics that relate to Ottawa pedestrain accidents:

2006 – 389, 2007 – 372, 2008 – 380, 2009 – 385, 2010 – 390

I know it goes without saying.  Some accidents are out of our control. Please be extra cautious when walking on busy streets.  Keep your head up, eyes open, but your phone away and focus on your surroundings.  It may very well save a life.
