One of the biggest stresses that people have is that they won’t be able to return to a quality of life they once had.

Vanier Pedestrian Accident
Ottawa Pedestrian Accident Lawyer David Hollingsworth.
Sadly, a 54 year old woman is in serious condition after an Ottawa accident in Vanier on Tuesday morning. Ottawa Paramedics responded to the accident scene on Marier Avenue, close to Beechwood Avenue. The accident victim was on foot and was trapped under the vehicle. She suffered serious personal injury to her legs. I wish her a full recovery.
Because pedestrians are not protected by a strong frame such as a vehicle or the safety of a seat belt, most pedestrian accidents result in serious injuries such as broken bones, head injuries, spinal injuries and sometimes death. Often times , the injuries sustained in a pedestrian accident result in permanent catastrophic injuries, and are life-altering, for not only the person injured, but their family as well.
Compensation for pedestrian accidents
In most cases, pedestrians are entitled to compensation through the driver’s accident benefits insurance company. These benefits typically include are , rehabilitation expenses, medical expenses, treatments and compensation for pain and suffering.
Experienced accident lawyers know how to help. You need to focus on your healing and leave the rest to our personal injury lawyers.

It’s our job to help you in every way we can so you can focus on healing. We will ensure you are being treated fairly by the insurance company and that you receive maximum compensation for your injuries and are able to rebuild your life comfortably after your accident.
Contingency Fees and Personal Injury Lawyers
Personal Injury Lawyer Ottawa David Hollingsworth and Associates.
Many people are involved in an accident and don’t know what to do. They don’t know their rights and they need advice. That’s where the best Ontario personal injury lawyers can help. I have been an Ottawa personal injury lawyer since 1999. I often meet or speak with people who have recently been injured in an accident. My goal is to provide them with as much information as possible so they can decide what to do. In some cases, I can simply advise them as to how to deal with their insurance company. In other instances I can advise as to how a personal injury lawyer can help them achieve better results. I like to meet with my clients and then give them their options. I do however offer more than free consultations. I take most personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that I carry the costs throughout the lawsuit, meaning my clients do not have upfront fees or costs during the lawsuit and I am reimbursed when the case is successfully resolved. When we meet, we agree what payments will be made to me, when the cases settles successfully. This means that my clients do not have to worry about any bills or legal costs throughout the entire process.
Who Pays Disbursement Costs?
Disbursements are the out-of-pocket expenses that some personal injury lawyers carry for their clients while working on the lawsuit. We are Ottawa personal injury lawyers who do not ask for any upfront disbursement money from our clients. In personal injury claims, disbursements include various costs such as obtaining doctors’ records, hospital charts, expert witness fees, court filing fees and the costs of transcripts.
Contingency fee arrangements are typically the best method for most clients. There is also peace of mind knowing that you do not have to pay any costs if you are not successful in your case. My previous clients can attest to the fact that when their life gets turned upside down in an accident, the last thing they need to be worrying about are legal bills. Thankfully, I get to help them get the money that they need and are entitled to. I am fortunate that I am the guy that at the end of the day has been there throughout the process and get to give out large settlements, which allow my clients to begin to rebuild their lives after a traumatic event.
