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 !

Halloween is just around the corner…Please for the safety of all, take a moment to discuss with your children how to stay safe. I also want to remind all drivers out there to be extra vigilant. The kids are undoubtedly wound up and looking for cars both ways before they cross the street may not be on their minds.
Most of all, have fun. Please remember….
- Kids can’t eat snacks while they’re out trick-or-treating. Please remind your children that it is best to wait until they return home and you have had an adult go through their treat bags, to ensure that there is nothing unsafe.
- It’s always best to feed children before hand so they aren’t hungry while they are out there and be tempted to snack.
- Remind your child not to accept/ eat that isn’t commercially wrapped.
- Go through your child’s loot bag to ensure that there are no hazards such as small toys, bubblegum, peanuts, or hard candies.
- Ensure that your child knows where to go if they get lost or need help.
- Ensure your child is supervised or follow the buddy system.
- Remind your child about the number of cars 0ut there and how crossing the street to run to the next house needs to be done in a safe manner.
- Children should stay in well-lit areas and should only visit homes that have outside lights on. Children should never go inside homes or cars.
Hallowe’en can be such a fun night, watching the kids run around with excitement. This year, in our house we have a bumblebee, a skeleton and a crazy hockey fan who can’t wait for the 31st to roll around. I hope you have a great , safe night . Trick or Treat !

Ottawa Personal InjuryLawyer David Hollingsworth.. A 50 year old Ottawa woman is currently in an Ottawa hospital with severe head injuries after a car hit her wheelchair yesterday and dragged her several metres in Ottawa’s west end. The Ottawa accident occurred shortly after 5 p.m. on Richmond Road near the Ottawa River Parkway. The woman was hit and dragged onto the road and remained trapped under the car. Ottawa Rescue crews were able to free her eventually. One paramedic indicated that the woman was on some levels lucky as her wheelchair absorbed some of the impact. Thankfully, she is now in stable condition when paramedics took her to hospital. The person driving the car was uninjured.

Ottawa Head Injury Lawyer, Ottawa Brain Injury Attorneys….Ottawa-based neurosurgeon Dr. Michael Vassilyadi has conducted a research that shows hockey helmets are the most effective at protecting children and preventing serious head injury to children tobogganing. The experiment conducted by Dr. Michael Vassilyadi, the neurosurgeon at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) and also a professor at the University of Ottawa, tested helmets designed for hockey, downhill skiing and cycling. Dr. Vassilyadi and his Ottawa team simulated the potential impact that might occur while tobogganing. The findings were amazing. Hockey helmets were determined to be the safest, over bicycle helmets. This is especially true if the hockey helmet has a face shield guard. Dr . Vassilyadi noted that often times, when a child suffers a tobogganing injury, they often have facial injuries such as torn lips, broken teeth, broken nose, or eye injuries.
The bottom line is that any helmet is better than none for tobogganing. So if you can’t have access to a hockey helmet, then please grab whatever helmet you have when you take your kids out tobogganing. As an Ontario personal injury lawyer who has had many clients with severe head injuries, I am in complete agreement with Dr. Vassilyadi and support is desire to see a helmet created for outdoor winter activities such as tobogganing and skating. It really does seem crazy not to.
Dr Vassilyadi explained that collisions in tobogganing are usually to the front of the head, whereas ski accidents usually involve impacts to the side of the head, where ski helmets were the most effective. Again this just goes to show that there is a need for a specific helmet to be designed for tobogganing , as there is currently no helmet specifically designed to protect the front of the head on impact.
All this to say, do everything you can to keep your little one’s (and yourself) safe. Take every safety step you can. A child brain injury or head injury is life altering. Enjoy this winter and all it’s wonderful activities, but please be safe.
