Ontario Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth…A terrible Train accident has left Lanark County Ontario Provincial Police looking into how a 20-year-old man from Perth ended up dying after being hit by a train just outside of Perth Monday night. A CP train scheduled to run from Smiths Falls to Toronto fatally struck Delsyn Stott, as he was walking on the train tracks in Tay Valley Township in the early evening. My thoughts go out to the friends and family of Delsyn Scott….

Ottawa Accident Lawyer David Hollingsworth..Be careful out there, it’s slippery. Ottawa received about six-hours of freezing rain earlier this morning. The rain worked its way across the region and then tuned to snow late this morning. What this means for Ottawa is a nice layer of snow covering the ice. This makes for very slippery road conditions. Both drivers and pedestrians need to be extra cautious.
Ottawa commuters need to leave extra time to get to their destinations and expect a slower than normal drive.
Ottawa roads are very slick, and most are covered with a slush layer, making driving very treacherous. Ottawa Police, paramedics and fire rescue crews were busy all day responding to dozens of Ottawa accidents, especially along the Hwy 417, Hwy. 416 and Hwy. 174 , where there have been a high number of serious Ottawa accidents. Hwy. 138 has been shut due to a serious crash between Willy Allen Rd. and Bonville (in the St. Andrews area, north of Cornwall). The eastbound lanes of Hwy. 401 have also been closed at mile marker 756 near Morrisburg due to another serious accident.
Ottawa’s weather has also unfortunately resulted closed the Rideau Canal Skateway this morning. National Capital Commission has been working hard to keep the Rideau Canal open this weekend for the thousands of visitors coming to Ottawa for the NHL All-Star Weekend.
As the day goes on, Ottawa roads are getting better but will likely freeze again tonight. Drive, walk and cycle carefully and slowly. Please give yourself the extra braking time.

Ottawa Frost Bite Warning In Effect: Be careful on slippery Ottawa roads and sidewalks: Ottawa lawyer David Hollingsworth
Posted by Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer, Ottawa Accident Lawyer, David Hollingsworth in Ottawa Injury and Accidents, Ottawa Resources, safety on January 14th, 2012
The freezing rain and snow have finally stopped and now a deep cold is setting in throughout Ottawa and eastern Ontario. Ottawa, Gatineau, Brockville, Cornwall and Smiths Falls were under a snowfall warning until late afternoon, with 15 centimetres or more expected throughout the day. A freezing rain warning was lifted that morning. There were over 60 Ottawa accidents yesterday and reports indicate that some Ottawa accident victims suffered minor injuries. Police believe that this was due to the fact that Ottawa drivers were slowing down and driving cautiously. Well done ! Not all accidents can be avoided but this just goes to show that if all drivers out there are driving very carefully we can reduce the number of Ottawa accidents that result in serious personal injury. To all of you out there who took a little extra time to get to your destination, or drove a little more defensively, congratulations , you did a great job.
That being said, you job is not done. There is a frost bite warning in effect in Ottawa. Dropping temperatures and increasing winds today will give us a -28 C wind chill. This cold cold weather looks like it’s here to stay for the day and will be as lows hit -22 C this evening. Once you add in the windchill factor and we’re looking at -27 C , according to Environment Canada. In other words, its coooooooooooolllllllldddddddddddddddd. My advice, stay in. It is supposed to warm up a little tomorrow. Unfortunately, our Ottawa roads and sidewalks will be slick and slippery. This will make it very challenging for Ottawa drivers, cyclists and pedestrians.
I have to admit, as much as I would like to, I can’t stay in. We will be out about shuffling our children from hockey rinks to swimming pools. My plan..slow and steady wins the race. We will get to where we need to be , then home for the SENS game..Go Sens go ! Please be safe out there today Ottawa. Take your time, keep our Ottawa roads as accident free as possible. Have a great, safe weekend.

Ottawa Injury Lawyer , David Hollingsworth. ..I’m sorry to report that an Ottawa woman is in critical condition after and Ottawa accident yesterday morning. The woman suffered serious personal injuries including serious head injuries. The accident took place on the Queensway, near the Vanier Parkway on-ramp . Ottawa Firefighters arrived at the accident scene to treat the injured woman, who was semi-conscious but unresponsive. Her car had been broadsided by a transport truck.
I hope this woman will be ok and the initial reports of serious head injury change. A serious head injury can be a life altering injury and a difficult injury to live with. I wish her the very best.

Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth gives some advice on how to avoid a personal injury. Now that the snow in Ottawa, Ontario is here, motorists are digging their cars out of snow banks, ditches and even their own driveways. It’s important that you take care in doing so. The following tips can help keep you safe and avoid an accident and more importantly a personal injury:
-Dig your tail pipe out as you don’t want to be overcome with carbon monoxide poisoning while trying to extricate your car while its exhaust system is clogged.
-Clear the snow away from the top of your car, windshield and rear view mirrors. Snow on your mirrors and wind shield will prevent visibility, but snow slipping from the top of your car while your are driving can also prevent visibility and be the cause of an accident.
-Wear bright clothing, put up a road flair and use flashlights while digging your car out on a roadside in the evening or after dark. You don’t want to become a pedestrian accident.
-Take breaks while doing the digging so you don’t get a back injury.
These are just some safety tips to help you stay safe. For more information on Ottawa accidents, prevention and personal injury visit www.ottawainjury.ca or call 613 978-9549

After being in a car accident, motorcycle accident or other motor vehicle accidents, most of David’s clients are immediately relieved when David explains the insurance claim process.
In each case, there are 3 immediate questions that must be considered:
1. Accident Benefits – When I get into an accident, how do I make a claim for accident benefits from my own insurance company?
2. Liability – is the accident the result of someone else’s negligence? If so, do I have a right to make a claim against that driver’s insurance?
3. Damages – When I have been injured in a car accident as a result of someone else’s fault, what can I claim against the other driver’s insurance company and how much am I entitled to?
If you or a loved one has been injured or died as the result of an accident, you may be entitled to accident benefits you are not receiving. As an Ottawa lawyer specializing in personal injury, I meet with people daily who have been seriously hurt and need help.

My thoughts go out to all the families and friends involved in this tragic car accident. – David
Two people are dead and a third hospitalized with serious injuries following a four-vehicle accident Sunday afternoon on Highway 17 west of Cobden.
At 1:40 p.m. in the afternoon, a west bound Cadillac SUV and an east bound Chevrolet Suburban were involved in a head-on collision about five kilometres west of Cobden, in the vicinity of Eldon Road. Two other east bound vehicles became indirectly involved in the accident as a result of this initial crash.
The male driver of the SUV was pronounced dead at the scene. His female passenger was airlifted to the Ottawa Civic Hospital with life-threatening injuries, but was later pronounced dead shortly after arrival.
The lone male occupant of the Suburban was transported to Renfrew Victoria Hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
Occupants of the other two vehicles suffered no serious injuries.
Rick Rogers, duty officer of the County of Renfrew Paramedic Service who was on the scene, said he understood the two occupants of one of the remaining two vehicles were taken to Renfrew Victoria Hospital to be treated for their injuries, while those in the last vehicle refused treatment.
On the scene of the accident were OPP officers from the Upper Ottawa Valley, Renfrew and Killaloe detachments, who were called out to handle the traffic chaos and secure the scene.
More than a dozen firefighters from three out of the four stations of the Whitewater Region Fire Department responded to the call – Cobden, Haley Station and Foresters Falls – of which Cobden and Haley Station each brought and used their extrication equipment to help get the victims out of the vehicles. Beachburg station was also called out, but was later called back to station.
The County of Renfrew Paramedic Service also responded in force; 10 paramedics were on scene in four emergency units, two from Pembroke, and one each from Renfrew and Eganville. The EMS service command post was also deployed to help coordinate the scene.

Ottawa motorcycle attorney reports rise in Motorcycle accidents results in increase in head injuries, accident deaths,
As an Ottawa lawyer, I seem to be getting calls almost daily about bicycle accidents and motorcycle accidents victims needing an Ottawa lawyer. It seems like there are more and more each day. Are there more people on motorcycles and bicylces? I recently came across this on a related law blog and thought I’d share it with you…
Consumer Reports recently posted an article about the rise in motorcycle fatalities and also about the fact that supersport motorcycles have been found to be the most dangerous type of motorcycle. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, motorcycle deaths have doubled in the past 10 years reaching 4,810. And although these deaths have been on the rise, car accident deaths have been steadily decreasing.
According to the IIHS the supersport bike riders’ deathrate is four times higher than other bike riders. These bikes made up less than 10 percent of registered motorcycles in 2005 but accounted for over 25 percent of rider deaths. The fatality rates for cruiser and standard riders was 5.7 deaths per 10,000 registered motorcycles. Touring bikes, such as the Harley example, averaged 6.5 deaths, with sport having 10.7 deaths per 10,000.
According to the study, speeding and driver error were bigger factors in the fatalities involving supersport bikes in comparison the other types of motorcycles. Alcohol was also a factor in 19% of the supersport fatalities, however it was an even bigger factor in the touring, standard and cruiser motorcycles.
Although there are more people riding motorcycles, there are fewer people deciding to wear a helmet while riding. The most effective way found to reduce head injuries is to wear a helmet that meets all of the federal safety standards. Of the motorcycle fatalities in 2005, 700 of those lives could have been saved if they were wearing a helmet.
It’s hard to believe these numbers are so high, but they are. Please, if you are out there on a motorcycle or bicycle doeverything you can tpo make yourself safe and ALWAYS wear a helmet..drive safely –David If you or someone you know has been involved in a motorcycle accident, bicycle accident or car accident, you may be entitled to benefits you are not receiving and need an Ottawa lawyer.
