Ottawa Accident Lawyer, Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth- I wish this woman a speedy recovery and I’m glad to hear her that son suffered no personal injury
Ottawa Accident Rideau Canal-A woman is in Ottawa hospital and her thankfully son is recovering after she flipped her crossover SUV onto Ottawa’s Rideau Canal this morning. The Ottawa firefighters used the jaws of life to free the woman from her vehicle, which went through the guardrail separating Ottawa’s Colonel By Drive from the Ottawa Rideau Canal skateway at about 8:40 this morning. Ottawa Police said her son escaped with no personal injury, but the extent of the her personal injury is still unknown. Ottawa police officer Constable Yannik Bernard said Ottawa’s slippery roads were likely to blame, rather than speed. The Ottawa police officer also reported that it appeared that the vehicle was headed southbound on Ottawa’s Colonel By when the driver lost control, having just gone under the Ottawa’s Bank St. overpass. Despite the Ottawa accident, Ottawa skaters were able to continue on the Ottawa canal, passing by only a few feet from the accident scene. One Ottawa witness, who stayed with the woman until emergency crews arrived, reported to the Ottawa Sun that when the Ottawa accident happened “it was crazy to hear the car hit the barrier and turn to see the car spinning on it’s top. She had just passed me when it went over the rail.”

No other details were reported regarding his name or extent of personal injuries. The collision was not a “hit and run”, since the vehicle driver remained on the scene.

Ottawa Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth discusses Fractures and Personal Injury
For more than 10 years, David Hollingsworth has earned a reputation as one of Ottawa’s leading personal injury lawyers.
A bone fracture can occur in many ways, and can result in painful and invasive procedures in order to heal. There are instances where multiple bone fractures occur as a result of a trauma and serious accident. A fracture can vary in the length of time it takes to recover depending on age and what caused the fracture. Multiple bone fractures can mean that the bone was damaged in various areas and therefore require extensive medical procedures.
There are many cases where another person’s negligence was the cause of the fracture and in those cases the victim should not be held responsible. An Ottawa personal injury lawyer has the experience and knowledge to handle your case efficiently and will ensure that the insurance company of parties responsible pay the compensation for your personal injury.
Types of Fractures from Injury
There are many different types of fractures from injury that can result from a variety of accidents. These fractures require different treatments because they may range in severity and also depend on the age of the victim and what caused the fracture. Some examples of the types of fractures include:
• greenstick fracture
• transverse fracture
• oblique fracture
• comminuted fracture
• impacted fracture
• pathologic fracture
• stress fracture
These fractures from injury can occur as a result of the hazardous and neglectful situations. They can be the fault of a manufacturer, company, employer, supervisor, physician. Some specific examples of they types
of scenarios that cause fractures include:
Types of Trauma as it Relates to Accidents
• Bicycle accident
• Vehicle accident- car accident, snowmobile accident, boating accident etc..
• Motorcycle accident
• Slip and fall accident
When a fracture occurs it is important to take safety measures so the least amount of damage from injury occurs. If the fracture victim is older they will most likely take longer to heal, hence longer time in the hospital and a longer treatment plan. Younger victims may take a smaller amount of time to heal but the medical procedures can still be invasive and costly. For many adults there can be more inconveniences due to the injury, such as needing work compensation if their injury prevents them from completing their job tasks. Recovery time also depends on which bone suffers the fracture. In some cases metal plates, pins, screws, may be used to hold the bone in place.

Ottawa brain injury lawyer, David Hollingsworth– My thoughts go out to the families of these young men. I know this intersection well and am sad to hear of the death of a young man. My thoughts are with the other three men and their families at this time. I wish you all a healthy recovery.
Early morning rescue attempt involved paramedic crews from outlying areas. A 21-year-old man is dead and two other young men are in critical condition after a car slammed into a tree and rolled over just north of the Ottawa River Parkway. The car had just crossed the Champlain Bridge from Gatineau early Sunday morning. A fourth man in the car was listed in serious condition early Sunday by Ottawa paramedics.
The car was travelling at high speed and only one of the four men is believed to have been wearing a seatbelt, according to Michael O’Brien, superintendent of operations for the Ottawa Paramedic Service. The crash occurred at about 3:15 a.m.
Bystanders were able to pull two of the men from the vehicle, while firefighters and paramedics extricated the other two men, O’Brien said in a release.
One of the four men died later in hospital, said collision investigator Const. Brian Dodds of Ottawa police. He said the victim was 21 years old and, like the three others, an Ontario resident.
The four young men were believed to be roommates who lived in a row unit at 1155 Meadowlands Dr. One owned the silver Volkswagen Jetta that was involved in the accident.
Yesterday, a tarp-covered motorcycle was stored in the backyard of their home, while another motorcycle could be seen in the living room. A neighbour said they were nice young men who were always sweet to the children in the neighbourhood.
O’Brien issued a release describing the injuries:
- A male, 21, with critical head and facial injuries and an open fracture to his right arm;
- A male in his 20s with critical head and facial injuries and injuries to his abdomen;
- A male in 20s with critical head injuries and multiple fractures to his left leg and right shoulder; and
- A male in is 20s with injuries to his abdomen and chest in serious condition.
Although Dodds said he believed the man who died was the first in that group, he was unable to confirm that, and paramedic service officials were unavailable to comment later Sunday morning.
A relative said Matthew Dorion, 23, was in surgery at The Ottawa Hospital’s Civic campus. Along with four paramedic units and two supervisors from the Ottawa Paramedic Service, units from Prescott-Russell and Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry helped with the rescue attempt.
Police are investigating.

Ottawa personal injury and accident lawyer David Hollingsworth: Be careful out there this Saturday night. We need to keep our children safe and free from injury. The Ottawa police have put out these safety tips and I thought I’d share them with you.
The night is quickly approaching when the streets will be filled with ghosts and goblins, not to mention princesses and fairies. As always, there are a few important Halloween safety guidelines that should be observed to ensure the night runs smoothly.
Around the house… Many people enjoy transforming their homes into eerie scenes. Be sure to keep the path leading up to your door free of obstacles for the little ones, especially those with masks who might have trouble seeing in dim light.
Keep pets indoors on Halloween to protect them from hazards and preventing them from being aggressive to visitors. Before you light those candles in your pumpkin, consider using inexpensive safety glow sticks. Nothing says spooky like a glowing green jack-o-lantern!
Costumes: It is important that when helping a child pick out a costume, safety should be the main concern. Wear a light-coloured or bright costume, reflective tape or arm bands to heighten visibility.
Wear a costume that is properly fitted to reduce the chance of tripping on it.
Select a costume that is constructed from flame-retardant materials. Make sure your vision is not restricted. Consider completing your costume with make-up rather than masks. Masks may require that the eye-holes be cut larger for the sake of good peripheral vision. Shoes should fit properly even if they do not go well with a costume. If a child’s costume requires the use of props, such as a flexible-plastic sword, make sure the sharp tip is cut or filed round. Glow sticks are also an excellent method to increase a child’s visibility. You might want to consider creating a fun necklace with string to ensure they will want to wear as part of their costumes. Accessorize with a flashlight!
Before the kids hit the streets, it is important that parents be aware of the route that their children plan to follow. If you are unable to take them out yourself, consider asking another parent, an older sibling or babysitter to do the honours for you. Ensuring your child is wearing a watch also allows you to establish an agreed upon curfew.
Teach your children to recognize the places along his/her route where they can obtain help: Police Station, Fire Station or any other well indicated public place.
Although tampering of loot is rare, remind children that they must have their candy inspected by their parents or guardian prior to eating them.
Some Rules for Trick or Treaters
Bring a flashlight;
Walk instead of running;
Stay on the sidewalks (If there is no sidewalk, walk on the left-hand side of the street facing traffic);
Do not cut across lawns or take short-cuts;
Take masks off when walking from one house to the next;
Do not go inside houses and do not get into vehicles;
Only visit houses that are lit;
Stay away from animals you are not familiar with; and
Vandalism is not just a ‘trick’ – it is against the law and has consequences.
Avoid injury and be safe out there Ottawa !! Above all, have a safe and ghoulishly good Halloween!
