Ottawa Accident Gladstone and Metcalfe
Ottawa Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth
An Ottawa car accident early this morning resulted in an Ottawa young woman being rushed to a hospital. The Ottawa car accident occurred close to my office at Gladstone Avenue and Metcalfe Street. When the cars hit, they were both sent flying and wound up on the sidewalk on Gladstone, knocking out a utility pole which resulted in a loss of power at the that intersection. A passenger, a woman in her 20s was freed by Ottawa paramedics and rushed to the Ottawa Hospital; thankfully she is in stable condition. She suffered personal injury, including a hip injury and chest injury. Both drivers were uninjured.
A hip injury is considered to be an orthopaedic injury and often times these injuries do not heal perfectly. Often times, after an accident, people who have suffered an orthopaedic injury will continue to suffer complications long after the initial broken bones have healed. When it comes to severe orthopaedic injuries, often times the broken bones will leas to a breakdown in the supporting tissue, which can result in complicated nerve damage that may require other medical treatments such as surgery. Often times , orthopaedic injuries leave people with long-term damage, health complications, arthritis, and chronic pain to name a few.
