Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyers David Hollingsworth and Associates. Ottawa Police are trying their best to do what it takes to reduce people getting injured and hopefully lower the number of Ottawa accidents. This morning they hit the Ottawa market looking for unsafe and illegal pedestrian activities such as crossing against a light or away from a cross-walk. The safety blitz downtown targeted pedestrians breaking the rules, cyclists riding on sidewalks and distracted drivers. Ottawa Police disguised themselves in plain clothes and stopped pedestrians with as they stepped off the sidewalk onto the street when the “don’t walk” signal was light. Ottawa Police also advised pedestrians that although pedestrians may have a walk signal, they still need to keep their heads up and their eyes open.
A ticket for jaywalking in Ottawa is $45 ; however you can’t put a price on your life. Be safe Ottawa !

Ottawa Bus Accident Lawyers. A woman is in critical condition in an Ottawa hospital last night after she tried to board and OC Transpo bus and seriously hurt herself. The 53 year old woman was hit by an OC Transpo bus on Rideau Street close to William Street mall shortly after 5 p.m. Ottawa paramedics rushed to the accident scene and treated the woman for severe multi-system trauma, which included a broken pelvis. When Ottawa paramedics arrived , the woman needed advanced life support to stabilize her enough to rush her to The Ottawa Hospital’s Civic Campus in critical condition. Thankfully, Ottawa Police later released that her condition was upgraded to stable condition late last night. The Ottawa Police are investigating the accident. I wish her a full recovery and I hope her condition continues to improve.

Ottawa Accident Lawyers David Hollingsworth and Associates…Believe it or not they are forecasting freezing rain for today in the Ottawa and Ottawa valley regions. Many drivers have already removed their snow tires , so please , please drive safely out there. Make sure you leave enough room between yourself and the vehicle in front of you. It is recommended that you always leave at least 2 car lengths between your vehicle and the next. I would also recommend you leave even more space when driving in difficult driving conditions such as freezing rain and black ice. I also recommend you give yourself a little extra time to arrive at your destination. You will need to adjust your driving speed in these conditions and slow it down a little. Hopefully all drivers are slowing down a little . You may need an extra few minutes to arrive safely, but at least you will.
An other note, watch your step if you are out walking today. Steps, sidewalks, roads and landings will be slippery. Watch where you walk. Hold on to railings
Whatever you may doing ,use caution and common sense. A little extra time and a little more effort can prevent accidents and injuries. Have a great, safe Sunday !

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 !

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 lawyer David Hollingsworth reports on snowmobile accident on Sharbot Lake and sad death of Robert Lee.
Sadly a 50-year-old man died on his snowmobile late Saturday afternoon. Robert Lee was riding his snowmobile on Sharbot Lake. Robert Lee, from Central Frontenac Township was riding when he lost control of his snowmobile and hit an embankment, close to 400 metres from the shore, where he had just been standing with friends. When Robert Lee’s snowmobile hit the embankment, he flew in the air and then hit the ice . Sadly, he was rushed to a nearby hospital in Perth but had already died. Although he was wearing a helmet, sadly it was not enough to save his life. My thoughts go out to the friends and family of Robert Lee.
