Head Injury Lawyers Ottawa Ontario-
Well Ottawa, we still find ourselves in a winter wonderland and more snow is coming. This is certainly not the time to let up on winter safety. I wanted to remind every one of the dangers of not wearing a helmet. Please also ensure your children are well protected when they are skating and tobogganing.
In 2012, the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario treated 1,270 children with a head injury, 41 of these head injuries were due to a tobogganing accident. These accidents are going to happen but with the proper protection, these injuries can be eliminated. It may seem extreme to some but trust me, as an Ottawa personal injury lawyer I meet daily with clients who have a brain injury and their lives have been altered forever. If there is a step you can take to protect your head or your child’s head; why wouldn’t you ?
I urge EVERYONE to wear a helmet when participating in any activity that could lead to a head injury. Have fun and be safe !
