Tragic Ottawa rollover accident Upper Dwyer Hill at March road: car submerged in water filled ditch.
Car Accident Upper Dwyer Hill
Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyers David Hollingsworth. Sadly, a 43 year old woman died yesterday at an Ottawa hospital. She had been submerged under water car after her car flipped and landed in a ditch filled with water on Upper Dwyer Hill Road at March Road. Emergency crews got the call around 8:15, but tragically Ottawa firefighters couldn’t help the woman. They had to first tow the car out of the water ditch and turn it over before Ottawa paramedics could try to start to save her . She was air-lifted to an Ottawa hospital and sadly she succumbed to her injuries. My thoughts are with her family and friends at this very sad and difficult time.
Wrongful Death and Car Accidents
Our personal injury lawyers meet regularly with families who have lost a loved one in a car accident. We sit down with these grieving families and share with them what we can do to help. Unfortunately, we can’t do what they want most , which is to bring their loved one back. Our injury lawyers can help in other ways. We can help secure death benefits so that loved ones receive a proper send off. Also included in Ontario Accident Benefits are expenses paid by family members related to a funeral. Our lawyers represent families at some of the most difficult times of their lives and help secure death compensation such as: Funeral Expenses up to $6,000.00, Spousal Death Benefits: $25,000.00 and Dependents’ Death Benefit: $10,000.00 each. We understand that this is not enough. In the case where someone else was negligent for the death of a loved one, you may have a wrongful death lawsuit you can also pursue.
In order for a death to be considered wrongful death lawsuit, it must establish that the death:
- Was due to negligence or recklessness of another party.
- Has caused measurable damages, for example a spouse is now suffering from financial issues as the deceased was primary breadwinner.
