Ottawa Accident Lawyers David Hollingsworth and Associates . Ottawa Rescue Crews rushed to Merivale road, close to Hunt Club and Roydon Place Monday night around 5:13 p.m. A 50 year old woman was out for a walk with her husband when suddenly, a car hit her.

Ottawa Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth, The Canada Safety Council’s website put out the following information about tire safety. When the roads are slick and icy, your tires mean everything. Please take a moment to read this post. -Ottawa Car Accident Lawyer David Hollingsworth
Tires are without a doubt the most critical safety component on a vehicle. Where the rubber meets the road affects traction, handling, steering, stability and braking. Because of this, a sudden tire failure can have serious consequences, especially if it occurs at highway speeds in a vehicle with a high centre of gravity.
Are your tires safe? Under inflation is the leading cause of tire failure. Twenty-three per cent of vehicles have at least one tire under-inflated by more than 20 per cent. An under-inflated tire may not be visibly noticeable; however, they are more prone to damage and failure and contribute to higher fuel costs. The right amount of air for your tires is specified by the vehicle manufacturer and is usually shown on the vehicle door edge, doorpost, glove box door or fuel door. It is also listed in the owner’s manual.
It’s up to you. The vehicle owner is responsible for prevention of tire failure caused by improper inflation. Many people seldom ever check their tires. That’s why all 2008 and newer vehicles now have the “Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems” to alert the driver if a tire is low. TPMS isn’t mandatory in Canada , and so far, there are no plans to make it so. Transport Canada says it is monitoring the effectiveness of TPMS and will not rule out the possibility of mandatory requirement, but also says that it will make no decisions before looking at several issues, including false or no warnings, sensor battery life, long-term system durability, and the extremely low numbers of tire failures cited in fatal collisions.
Check Tire pressure. So even though your vehicle is equipped with TPMS, you should still check your tire pressure once a month and before any longer trips. Tires do not last forever, even if the tread shows little visible wear. As rubber ages, it loses elasticity, hardens and can become brittle. The reinforcing cords inside a tire can also deteriorate and lose strength. This increases the risk of a sudden tire failure the older the tire gets. After ten years, the risk of failure goes up sharply. Because of this, many safety experts say tires that are more than six years old have expired and should be replaced regardless of how much tread is left on the tires.
Did You Know? All tires sold in Canada have a tire identification number moulded into the sidewall. This number provides tire retailers specific manufacturing information about when and where the tire was made. The first two characters following DOT indicate the manufacturer and plant code; the third and fourth characters are the tire size code. The fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth are optional. The final four give the manufacturing date. For example, 2602 indicates that the tire was manufactured in the twenty-sixth week of 2002. The maple leaf following the number indicates that the tire was made in Canada and certifies that it meets Transport Canada requirements.
Ok, my fellow Ontario drivers…get out there and check those tires !!!!!!!!

Ottawa Accident Lawyer David Hollingsworth – Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer- I am truly sorry to everyone involved in this Ottawa accident which resulted in death and serious personal injury. Losing two 18 year olds is a very sad event. My wishes go out to the families of these young men. I also wish a healthy and full recovery to the other accident victims of this terrible Ottawa accident….
Two 18 year old men died after the Pontiac Sunfire they were riding in collided with a Hyundai Santa Fe SUV just after 7:30 p.m last night on Albion Road. Of the 4 people in the SUV, the most serious personal injury was an 82-year-old woman, who was found semi-conscious in critical condition with head injuries and was rushed to hospital where her condition was upgraded to serious, but stable upon arrival. A 56-year-old woman suffered severe chest trauma and a possible fractured sternum. She was in serious, but stable condition. The 67-year-old man driving the Santa Fe suffered head, neck, abdominal and shoulder injury, and a 61-year-old woman suffered orthopedic injury- a fractured wrist. Both were taken to hospital in stable condition. None of the names of the crash victims have been released.
Ottawa police say driver error is likely to blame for a weekend crash on Albion Road that claimed the lives of two high school students.
Ottawa Accident Update: Speed and alcohol were ruled out as factors in the accident, which happened Saturday night when a Pontiac Sunfire driven by David Stringer, 17, and carrying passenger Jonathan Jackson, 18, collided with a Hyndai Santa Fe. Both teens in the Sunfire were killed. Four passengers in the Santa Fe were taken to hospital and are listed in stable condition. The Sunfire was travelling southbound on Albion about 300 metres south of Rideau Road at about 7:40 p.m. Police say Stringer might have veered into the highway’s narrow gravel shoulder and while attempting to correct, steered into the oncoming lane. Friends of the two teens came to the accident site to say goodbye. “Not all of us are religious, but we know Jonathan and David were both very religious so we said a little prayer for them,” said Kadry Lawrence. Set to graduate from Merivale High School this year, Stringer was active in musical theatre and held a black belt in karate. Jackson, a student at John McCrae Secondary school, was a popular student involved in charitable work. He spent a year in Haiti with his family working with the poor. The school board said a tragic events reponse team has been put in place to provide assistance, counselling and support to students and staff this week. “Our community is in mourning,” said a statement issued by the board. “We will support each other in this time of need.”

Ottawa Accident Lawyer, Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth-
Good news Ottawa ! The city is going to be looking closely at some of the most dangerous Ottawa accident intersections. In Ottawa, Ontario between 2004 and 2009 in Ottawa, there were 1,600 pedestrian-related Ottawa accidents resulting in personal injury. The Pedestrian Safety Evaluation Program aims to target 23 of the most collision-prone Ottawa intersections and make improvements for Ottawa’s pedestrian safety. The Carling-Holland intersection, which relies on a complex sequence of 14 separate lights, along with the intersection of Donald Street and Vanier Parkway will be the first to see changes.
Let’s hope we can make Ottawa a safer place and avoid as many Ottawa accidents as possible !

Ottawa Brain Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth explains what to expect if your child suffers from a traumatic brain injury in Ontario.
Traumatic Brian Injury ( TBI ) in Children
Ottawa Brain Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth explains what to expect if your child suffers from a traumatic brain injury in Ottawa or brain injury in Ontario. As a parent, we are ready to do anything possible to protect our children from harm, pain, or suffering. Unfortunately, we cannot protect our children from everything. If your child has suffered a traumatic brain injury (or “TBI”), you must consider your options and make actions that will be in your child’s best interests, to help them on their road to rehabilitation and recovery.
There are some things that can be expected if your child has suffered a TBI. Generally, any injury to a child, including a TBI, is extremely serious and should be treated as such. Children can be even more susceptible to brain injuries than adults, however, because a child’s brain and body are still in a state of development and a TBI can cause permanent disability and limitation in terms of functioning, movement, speech, or thought development process.
Your Child’s Medical Support Team
If you believe that your child is a victim of a TBI, your first step is to seek appropriate medical help as soon as possible. This involves consultation with various doctors, such as a general practitioner, a pediatrician, neurosurgeon, and any medical brain specialist generally, especially one that deals with children’s brain injuries. This also involves consultation with a psychologist and psychiatrist, to ensure that your child’s mental health is also assessed during this complex brain injury process. These steps will help to safeguard and protect for your child’s rehabilitation and they will also empower you and your family with options and ideas to consider in the ongoing recovery process.
Your Child’s Legal Support Team
In addition to the medical team of specialists helping to assist in your child’s recovery and rehabilitation, it is also necessary for you to enlist the help of a personal injury lawyer specializing in Traumatic Brain Injuries. A Top Children’s TBI Lawyer such as David Hollingsworth has a highly specialized expertise in this area of law. It is important to consult with an experienced Ontario brain injury lawyer that will share the process with you. Generally, the process is complex and can be painful since your Child’s Brain Injury is a real tragedy. But there are steps that you can take to deal with the situation once it has happened, to ensure for your child’s best future prospects in terms of health and happiness in mind.
How to Secure Maximum Compensation
A top Ottawa Children’s Brain Injury lawyer can help you to determine who may be responsible for your child’s TBI. If the injury is due to someone’s negligence in any capacity, then your child is entitled to maximum compensation for his or her injuries. An Ottawa personal injury lawyer or Ottawa brain injury lawyer will seek compensation for you and your child to assist in recovery.
Since brain injuries are often known as “invisible injuries”, they can be complex and difficult to fully understand and to deal with. Children, after-all, often have less developed communication capabilities and are often not able to as easily or fully nuance their symptoms, or even to understand that they have developed. A children’s TBI can be a real life altering experience for the victim of the personal injury, requiring ongoing medical treatment and rehabilitation. A good personal injury lawyer will ensure that your child’s compensation will be adequate to deal with future years to come, and this is where an experienced Ottawa brain injury lawyer is critical. Your Top Ottawa Children’s brain injury lawyer will be able to help you to secure for your child’s financial future, and also to develop a life care plan.
