What are Ontario income replacement benefits ? If you have been in an accident in Ontario, one of the first calls you may make after you have taken care of yourself is likely to your insurance company. You will need to make this call within 7 days if possible. This early reporting will help significantly when it comes time to settling your claim. If you are unable to work because of your accident, you will likely be eligible for basic weekly income replacement benefits. These benefits will add up to 70% of your gross income , to a limit of $400 per week. There options to top up your insurance by purchasing additional insurance coverage. Optional income replacement benefits can increase the maximum weekly pay out on income replacement benefits to $600, $800 or $1,000, depending on how much optional accident benefits coverage you purchase. I know that paying additional premiums on top of already high insurance rates seems ridiculous; however, if you ever need to access these benefits ,you really need them and would never regret your purchase. Depending on your income level, topping up your Ontario accident income replacement benefits makes a lot of sense.

Injury Lawyers Ottawa Ontario David Hollingsworth. It seems to be that Ottawa roads are already starting to look a little less busy. I wonder if people have started the “March break” early. If you have, good for you. I hope you all enjoy a wonderful holiday. Hopefully you find time to relax and enjoy time with friends and family. If you are doing highway driving in the holidays, please allow for extra time to arrive at your destination. Highway driving can also be very exhausting, so schedule in time to stop for breaks to refresh your self and give your eyes and senses some time to relax. If you are too tired to drive, pull over or switch drivers. A reminder to leave hand help devices away. Store them somewhere you won’t be tempted to grab. If you don’t know your destination, map out your route AHEAD of time. Don’t be fumbling with a phone/GPS as you are driving.
Another reminder for those going away is to leave your property free from potential obstacles. The last thing you want is for someone to get hurt on your property while you were away. Make sure objects are put away and not lying on pathways. If you can clear your walkway before you leave, please do so and arrange for a neighbour or friend to keep it up for you while you are away.
If you are sticking around for the week, there are lots to do in Ottawa. If you are planning on skiing, snowboarding, skating or tobogganing,please make sure you are wearing a helmet and protective gear. Accidents can happen in an instant and can be life changing. Take the extra few minutes to protect yourself and your family.
Have a wonderful March break..rest, recharge, do whatever you need to do ! Just enjoy, but enjoy safely.

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 !

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 !
