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.

How to help your teenager be a better driver and help reduce Ottawa accidents and personal injuries.
Posted by Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer, Ottawa Accident Lawyer, David Hollingsworth in Accident Benefits Insurance Claims, Ottawa Injury and Accidents, safety on April 1st, 2013
Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyers David Hollingsworth and Associates. Car accidents are the leading cause of death in teenagers and sadly are on the rise. We can’t have this . The Ottawa Sun published some tips for teenage drivers . The tips originally came from FORD and the Ford Driving Skills for Life program. This program is aimed at helping parents help new teenage drivers and helping them be safe drivers. Some of the best tips were as follows:
1.Focus on driving. Watch the road and keep your hands on the wheel.
2.Always use your seatbelts and make sure your passengers buckle up as well.
3. Obey speed limits. They are there for a reason.
4. Do not talk, text or use any non-hands free device while driving. That;s how people die.
5. Always allow enough room between you and the next vehicle.
6. Be aware of road hazards: animals, potholes and other drivers.
7. Obey all driving laws. This includes piling too many people in the car etc..
8. Never drink and drive. There is always a better, safer alternative. Find one !
All of these seem obvious, but please take a moment and review of have your teenager read the, AGAIN. It will never hurt. We have to be able to empower our teenage drivers and make sure they have the tools they need to be out on the roads safely. Please, we owe it to them.

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 !

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…

Good morning Ottawa ! It is cold out there today and very slippery. There is a layer of ice on the ground and its hard to see , as last night’s snow is covering the ground. This is typically when slip and fall accidents happen. With the holidays here we are all out just a little more, shopping and visiting with others and often we are carrying bags or presents.|This, coupled with our weather conditions contribute to a higher incidence of slip and fall accidents. Slip and fall accidents in Canada makeup more than 50% of all personal injuries . Slip and falls accidents are the primary cause of accidents in hotels, restaurants and public buildings such as shopping malls.
As a property owner, it’s also important that you keep your property as safe as possible. This means keeping your walkways and steps clear of ice. Property owners have a “duty of care” to see that their property is reasonably safe. This not only means ensuring steps and walkways are cleared away in a reasonable manner, it also means your home doesn’t have structural defects, hazardous conditions have been addressed.
Yes, accidents do happen but many accidents are preventable. There are things you can do to lower your risk of a slip and fall accident such as watching for ice, wearing proper footwear, walking slowly, keeping your hands free in case you do fall.
Please enjoy this holiday season and do whatever it takes to keep yourself , your family and your friends safe. Happy, safe holidays to all !
