A terrible Killaloe accident has left a mother and one of her children in a Ottawa hospital with serious injuries. Kristen Birney was driving a minivan with her four children inside the vehicle when it was hit by another vehicle turning from Opeongo Road onto Letter Kenny Road at about 5 o’clock last night. The OPP are looking to press careless driving charges against the 67 year old driver that struck the minivan. The result was that Kristen and her 3 year old toddler were airlifted to the Ottawa Hospital Civic campus in critical condition. The OPP are continuing in their investigation. If you have any information that could help police, please contact the OPP. My thoughts are with Kristen, her young child and their family at this difficult time and I’m wishing them both FULL recoveries. Thankfully they are in excellent hands at the Ottawa Hospital.

Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth..Well done Ottawa. We survived what seemed to be an incredible amount of snow fall yesterday. It was recorded that we received close to 15 centimeters but it did feel like much more. In Ottawa/Gatineau there were a reported 95 car accidents. Ottawa paramedics responded to 26 accident related calls but thankfully no serious injuries were reported. I say well done. While it would have been great to avoid all accidents, in weather like yesterday’s, it is bound to happen. The fact that there were no serious injuries tells me that Ottawa drivers are driving more cautiously and adjusting their driving to the conditions of the roads . Well done Ottawa. (Maybe you all read my earlier post on safe driving in winter weather ) All kidding aside, I think this is great.
Continue to use your best driving skills as we aren’t out of the woods yet. Ottawa roads are covered in snow and may make for challenging driving conditions. Most of all ensure you have enough space between you and the driver in front of you.
Safe travels home ..and if you are like me, safe travels to your kids extra-curricular activities once you get home !

Ottawa Insurance Claims Lawyers David Hollingsworth and Associates
Yes, any person injured in an automobile accident in Ontario can make an insurance. This includes claim their relatives and/or dependents. There are some limitations to their insurance claim if one has broken the law during the accident in Ontario. If this is the case, they cannot receive income replacement benefits, visitors expenses, non-earner benefits, lost education expenses, expenses of visitors and the housekeeping and home maintenance benefits.
The person injured may claim these benefits from their own insurance company. If they do not have an insurance company, they can claim it at the driver at-fault’s insurance company. If none of the persons involved have insurance, the claim can be made through the Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund.
Regardless if you have been at fault or not or have insurance or not, we can help you. There are options. We understand the stress you are going through and can help.

David Hollingsworth and Associates- Personal Injury Lawyers in Ottawa Ontario. Can you believe that Ottawa police issued 271 tickets in January to drivers who failed to properly stop at a stop sign? Ottawa Police also issued 97 tickets to drivers who followed too closely behind the vehicle in front of them. Although obeying these 2 rules seems very obvious, it’s amazing how many Ottawa accidents occur each year as a result of these 2 infractions. so why? Are we always in a rush? Are we not paying attention? Do we think accidents won’t happen to us? Well guess what? They do ! Ottawa accident statistics don’t lie. Doing 2 simple things such as leaving enough space (2 chevrons) between you and the vehicle in front of you and allowing yourself enough time to stop properly can make all the difference . Let’s all work at keeping Ottawa roads safer !

There are far too many snowmobile accidents each year. A tragic snowmobile accident took another life: the life of a 24 year old man in Val des Monts yesterday. My thoughts go out to his family and friends and I am truly sorry for their loss. I have many clients who have injured themselves while snowmobiling . A snowmobile is considered a motor vehicle and yes, Ontario accident benefits apply to snowmobile accidents. So the good news is there is support and compensation for people who suffer injuries in snowmobile accidents. The bad news is, there seem to be a lot of snowmobile accidents in our region and some of them are sadly, fatal. Please ride safely…
Transport Canada has prepared an amazing site full of interesting information that relates to road and snowmobile safety. For example, did you know that there are over 700,000 registered snowmobiles and more than 161,000 km of snowmobile trails in Canada? Snowmobiling can be safe and enjoyable. As long as drivers are cautious and follow safety rules, there is no reason not to get out and enjoy a fantastic sport.
The Canadian Council of Snowmobile Organizations or CCSO highlighted that between the years of 1994 and 1999, when promoting safety and snowmobiling became a focus, snowmobile accident fatalities dropped by 2% – from 96 to 94 deaths;however the number of snowmobile drivers increased by 40%. This goes to show that more and more people can ride safely ,when safety is a focus.
Snowmobiling safety tips:
- Tell someone where you plan to go and when you plan to get there.
- Ensure that your snowmobile is tuned up.
- Dress properly to protect yourself and avoid hypothermia, especially in children.
- Always have a first aid and survival kit available.
- Ride at your own speed.
- Try to use snowmobile trails whenever possible.
- Remain on the right side of all roads, paths and trails.
- If you don’t know the area, slow down and drive cautiously.
- Be careful crossing roads and train tracks.
- At night, drive with headlights and slow down.
- Know the ice conditions and if you are unsure, do not cross.
- Always wear flotation-type clothing.
- Always be on the look out for wildlife.
It’s impossible to completely avoid all accidents but please, let’s try. Snowmobiling does not need to be a dangerous sport. Be safe and ride as safely as possible. Enjoy !

Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth: Be careful on Ottawa roads tomorrow as children head back to school.
Posted by Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer, Ottawa Accident Lawyer, David Hollingsworth in Ottawa Injury and Accidents, safety on January 6th, 2013
Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyers David Hollingsworth and Associates. I just wanted to take a moment and wish everyone a happy new year and remind everyone that children will be heading back to school tomorrow morning and the roads will be busy. We now have a significant amount of snow covering Ottawa roads and beneath that snow is ice. Please drive slowly and be aware of children heading back to school who may be out of routine and not looking in both directions before they cross the street etc.
I hope everyone had a great holiday season and the transition back to work is a smooth one…

Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth and Associates. Two Ottawa accidents have left a 30-year-old man in serious condition after he was struck by a truck on Heron at Finn . He had been walking on the sidewalk when he was hit and was trapped under a hydro pole. He suffered personal injuries to his legs and abdomen and remains in serious condition at the Ottawa Hospital Trauma Centre.
In a separate Ottawa accident, another man in his 80s remains in serious, but stable condition after he was hit by a car on Baseline road, close to Clyde. He was rushed to an Ottawa Hospital and was being treated for a severe head injury.
I hope both of these men are able to recover fully from these terrible accidents. My thoughts are with them, their families and friends.
