Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth. A terrible 2 car accident in Orleans has left 3 women with serious personal injuries yesterday afternoon. A 24 year old woman suffered a severe head injury and possibly a fractured pelvis. The Ottawa accident occurred mid afternoon at St. Joseph Boulevard, close to Old Tenth Line Road. A second vehicle was carrying a 26 year old woman who suffered a fractured collarbone as well as a 27 year old who suffered a shoulder and neck injury. All 3 women were rushed to an Ottawa hospital. I wish them all a full and speedy recovery.
Car accidents and head injuries
A head injury is a very serious injury and can life-long lasting effects. As an Ottawa personal injury lawyer, we meet daily with people who have been in a car accident and suffered a head injury. Often times, the initial diagnoses is that the head injury is not that severe. Then, over the course of a week, sometimes a month, the individual starts suffering more and more. The difficulty with a head injury is that it is an invisible injury. Many people don’t realise that the individual is suffering because they look perfectly fine. Some wonder why their friend’s or family member’s behaviour seems different and they aren’t quite the same. Often times, people with a brain injury can’t quite remember the way they used to. Others may be more irritable than they once were. Some individuals become exhausted and apathetic. The reality is a brain injury can affect individuals in many different ways .
