Ottawa Motorcycle Accident Lawyers David Hollingsworth and Associates. With the nice weather here, more and more motorcycles will be out on the roads and highway. We hope that all drivers are extra cautious and watching out for motorcycles that may be in your blind spot . Obviously motorcycles are much smaller than cars or trucks and are often more difficult to see.
Ottawa Police along with Safer Roads Ottawa and the Ontario Ministry of Transportation are working at reducing Ottawa motorcycle accidents by introducing their ”Keep an Eye Out for Motorcycles” campaign. The main messages of the campaign is for motorists to share the roads and watch out for one another. Ottawa has also announced that May will be ”Motorcycle Awareness and Safety Month” .
As a Ottawa personal injury lawyer I meet regularly with people who have been in a motorcycle accident and have become severely injured. The reality is that motorcycle drivers have much less protection and often the injuries are devastating. Both motorists and motorcyclist need to share the road and be aware of one another.
Here are a few tips for drivers when it comes to motorcycles:
- Motorcycles require full lane and are no different than other vehicles.
- Share the road
- Follow at least 2 seconds or 2 chevrons behind the vehicle in front of you.
- Most motorcycle accidents happen between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m., so be extra vigilant during these times.
- Over 1/3 of motorcycle accident happen at intersections. Be extra vigilant.
- Slow down at intersections.
- Avoid tailgating as this can be more dangerous to motorcyclists with less protection.
- Give motorcyclists enough room to change lanes. Although they are smaller, they still need room.
- Check mirrors often so you know where other vehicles are.
We can all put a little more effort into keeping our Ottawa roads a little safer. Motorcyclists and drivers have their role to play. Let’s play together and keep our Ottawa roads safe.

Ottawa Accident Lawyers David Hollingsworth and Associates. For everyone’s safety, the OPP-Ontario Ontario Provincial Police are about to begin a distracted driving campaign next week. This is not the first distracted driving campaign in our area. Ontario Police often target distracted drivers and you wouldn’t believe the number of infractions that occur in just a one weekend blitz campaign. I support these campaigns fully. As a Ottawa personal injury lawyer, I read police accident reports daily and the number of Ottawa area accidents caused by distracted driving is astonishing. What bothers me most, is that these accidents may have been avoidable. I’m not saying I don’t understand how it happens. I too have children that suddenly start fighting in the back seat and before I know it, my attention has been diverted from the road to them. It happens. That is why reminders such as this post are so useful. My goal is to have us all tuck this post in the back of our minds and hopefully the next time a situation arises when we are driving, we will remember.
Ontario Police are not only focusing on distracted drivers, they are also asking drivers to leave any handheld devices out of reach while driving. Ontario Police are also asking that passengers speak to their drivers if they are driving distracted. While this may be uncomfortable, it is life saving !
As I mentioned earlier, distracted is not limited to texting or talking on the phone. Although texting is the most dangerous, there are other obstacles that can divert your attention while driving. The most common are:
watching other drivers,
focussing on kids in the backseat ,
looking in the mirror,
or personal grooming.
Please tuck this information away and hopefully we can all work together to reduce Ottawa accidents and keep our roads safe. Drive safely and have a great day.

Ontario Injury Lawyers David Hollingsworth and Associates. An accident in Winchester Ontario has left 2 men in the Ottawa Hospital Trauma Unit following an early morning accident yesterday morning. The Winchester accident occurred on County Road 31 when one vehicle is believed to have crossed a centre line and hit another vehicle. Police are investigating why the van may have crossed the line but still have not determined why. Ottawa paramedics were second to arrive at the Winchester accident after they were asked to help the Stormont Dundas and Glengarry Paramedics. Both drivers of both vehicles were trapped in their vehicles and were eventually freed by the Winchester rescue crews. One man was rushed to the Ottawa Hospital Civic Campus with severe trauma including a critical head injury and critical leg injury. The other man was also transported to the Ottawa Hospital Civic Campus with several traumatic injuries and multiple fractures and is in serious, but thankfully stable condition. I wish both men in this accident a full recovery. They have both suffered very severe injuries and will have a long road ahead of them. County Road 31 will be close for Police investigation.

Posted by Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer, Ottawa Accident Lawyer, David Hollingsworth in Carleton Place accidents, Ottawa Car Accidents, Ottawa Injury and Accidents, wrongful death on March 29th, 2013
What a terrible and tragic start to Easter weekend. Sadly, 2 young university students died on their way home from Trent University to visit their families for Easter. 4 other people also suffered serious personal injuries last night after a terrible accident in Beckwith Township, close to Lanark. The accident took place on Richmond Road, just south of Carleton Place and involved 2 vehicles. Tragically 21-year-old Madeleine Havelock and 22-year-old Thomas Guerette were found trapped in their car and pronounced dead at accident scene. They were travelling with a 21-year-old woman who suffered a severe pelvic fracture and a serious head injury. She remains in critical condition. I hope she is able to fully recover from this devastating accident. I’m so sorry for the Havelock and Guerette families who have lost their children, who had bright futurs ahead. This is a terrible, terrible tragedy.
3 others people were also injured. A 23-year-old man driving suffered a shoulder injury, while his passengers suffered serious personal injuries. One had severe abdominal injuries and a 16-year-old suffered serious injuries to his back and shoulders. They were rushed to the Carleton Place Hospital. I hope they are all able to recover from these injuries.
We never want to hear about accidents like this and it is tough to imagine the devastation for these suffering families.

Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyers David Hollingsworth and Associates. I was out visiting a client in Rockland today and as I was driving around Rockland. I couldn’t help but notice how many people were out on their bicycles . That’s great for so so many reasons. We are all excited for spring to arrive and with spring comes more pedestrians, cyclist, motorcycles, ATV etc. I wanted to take a moment and remind everyone of a few things you can do to help keep yourself safe and our Ottawa roads safe.
-The Ottawa Police have a great website that offers the following tips:
-Make sure your helmet is on and fits properly.
-Your bicycle helmet should be snug and not move around.
-Your bicycle helmet should sit two finger-widths above your brows.
-The straps of your helmet should form a V below and around both ears.
-You should not be able to get more than 2 fingers between the chin strap and your chin.
-Ottawa and Ontario cyclists must wear a helmet by law if they are under 18 years of age.
-Do not wear a hat under a helmet. This is not safe.
-Helmets only reduce personal injuries, they do not prevent accidents from happening.
-Do not use a helmet that has already been in an accident.
-All bicycle helmets need to be CSA, CPSC, Snell B-95, or a N-94 certification sticker.
-Remember that motorists and cyclists share the roadways.
-Cyclists must also follow the rules of the road. The Ontario Highway Traffic Act, the Ottawa Traffic and Ottawa Parking Bylaw state that cyclists:
-Stop at all stop signs and stop at red lights, and properly signal any changes in lanes.
-Ottawa cyclists must remain on the right side of the road
-Do not ride your bicycle on sidewalks.
-Have a bell, gong, or horn on your bicycle.
-If you are riding at night, make sure your bicycle is well lit.
Please be safe out there. Ottawa has had far too many bicycle accidents and we all need to obey the rules of the road. Have a great and happy spring on your bicycle Ottawa !
