Ottawa Lawyer : What is Ontario slip and fall compensation ?

Ottawa Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth… 

Ontario, Ottawa Pedestrian Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth. David has a lot of experience with individuals who have sustained slip and fall injuries while in a store and have slipped and fell from either poor maintenance of the floor itself (elevated or cracked), or it is slippery from a spill of a liquid of some sort. Putting a sign saying the floor is wet is simply not enough to prevent a serious injury, ensuring the floor is dry will prevent the injury. The same goes for a damaged floor. If a floor is wet or damaged it should be fixed immediately. That is the responsibility of the store. If you suffer a serious injury, there is compensation available to you and that is where the best Ottawa personal injury lawyers can help.

If you are shopping and see something that appears unsafe within a store, do your part and tell an employee or a manager. If we all do our part we can prevent Ottawa slip and fall injuries.

What is a personal injury ? What compensation for injuries is there in Ontario?
 

 Some personal injuries are so severe that they are obvious, while others are not.  Some personal injuries are harder to see, as they are not visible, yet may be equally as painful and life-changing. The following personal injuries are the more common personal injuries, but do not include all..

 

motor vehicle accident injuries- car accidents, motorcycle accidents, boat accident, ATV accidents, snowmobile accidents, etc..

 

paraplegic injuries 

quadriplegic injuries 

spinal cord injury 

accident amputations -loss of  limbs 

brain injuries 

head injury 

whiplash injury 

orthopedic injuries (broken bones) 

lacerations, burns and scarring 

chronic pain 

fibromyalgia 

chronic fatigue 

pain and suffering 

other injuries resulting from an accident

The amount of compensation in Ontario to which an Ontario accident victim is entitled to varies.  There are a number of factors that go into determining compensation in Ontario such as severity of injury (physical, mental and psychological), future care and medical needs, loss of past and future income, need for ongoing house-keeping assistance, attendant care and caregiving assistance needs, to name a few.  An experienced Ontario personal injury lawyer can go through all of this with you and help ensure you get the maximum compensation to which you are entitled to.  Experienced Ontario personal injury lawyers work directly with medical doctors, social workers, psychologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, other treating health practitioners to  support you and ensure you are getting everything that  is needed.

Ottawa bicycle accident lawyer – Ontario cycling accident benefits and compensation

Ottawa Bicycle Accident Lawyer David Hollingsworth, Ontario Bicycle Accident Lawyers-

Spring has sprung and the bicycles are out! I will admit my heart skips a beat every time my 4-year-old daughter clicks on her helmet and takes her Dora bike out. Riding a bicycle on the road can be dangerous and bicycle accidents can have lifelong implications, including ongoing medical care, pain and suffering, loss of income and the prospect of devastating effects on your family. Bicycle accidents and personal injury can be the result of a negligent driver. Drivers do not always think the person on the bicycle has the same rights, as does a car or motor vehicle.  

Ottawa bicycle accidents can be especially injurious to the bicyclist because he or she has nothing to protect them from a high-speed impact with another vehicle and ultimately, the hard-pavement. Many Ontario bicycle accidents end in tragedy, which includes brain injury, head injury, burns and cuts, spinal injury, broken bones, fractures, and death. I recommend to all bicyclists to always wear a helmet to protect the sensitive brain against head and brain injuries, and to wear protective clothing with reflective qualities—essential for night-time cycling. The reflective gear acts to protect the cyclist by warning drivers in advance of his or her presence. The #1 goal of bicycle safety is to avoid getting hit by a car. Always practice safe cycling by using your hand signals, and riding in designated areas.

In Ottawa Ontario, every cyclist has a right and entitlement to compensation when a driver is negligent and causes an accident that results in their personal injury.
 Ottawa bicycle 
victims who suffer serious personal injury in Ottawa bicycle accidents and Ontario bicycle accidents need to protect their rights to compensation with the help of an Ottawa personal injury lawyer or Ontario personal injury lawyer that understands the laws regarding bicycle accidents in Ontario, specializes in personal injury and driver negligence and can help you get back to your life as best possible.

If you have been involved in a bicycle accident and suffered a serious personal injury, you are likely entitled to serious compensation. David Hollingsworth and his Ottawa, Ontario personal injury team have been helping Ottawa and Ontario accident victims get maximum compensation for their Ontario personal injury since 1999.  David offers free consultations and takes cases on a contingency basis, which means no money upfront and he gets paid after you get paid.  Contact David directly at www.ottawainjury.ca or call 613-978-9549.
