Increase in City of Ottawa lawsuits and OC Transpo bus accident lawsuits.

Personal Injury Lawyer Ottawa

Suing the City of Ottawa ?  CBC news reported that the City of Ottawa paid out more than $1.4 million in the last three months of last year for  lawsuits related to accidents between motor vehicles and  OC Transpo.  None of these lawsuits include injury lawsuits or wrongful death lawsuits from last fall’s terrible accident between an OC Transpo bus and VIA Rail.

Most of the claims against the City of Ottawa are personal injury lawsuits and in most cases could have been avoided and consequently  OC Transpo  is looking at ways to improve and deliver a safer ride to almost 400 000 passenger trips daily.

In 2013, there was a total of 57 personal injury claims filed against the City of Ottawa  involving motor vehicle collisions and these personal injury claims totalled $5,013,823.45 . It was reported in CBC news that this amount is double the amount from last year.  It was also reported that there are more than 300 outstanding personal injury lawsuits.

Our personal injury lawyers are contacted regularly and asked to advise on legal rights and timelines when it comes to suing the City of Ottawa.  I have provided links to some relevant posts that answer most of these questions.
