    21 Tips for a Safe and Prosperous New Year

    Happy New Year!

    There is always lots of anticipation as the clock strikes midnight on December 31st.  Hope for a prosperous and healthy new year is at the top of most people’s New Year’s wish list.  As we say good bye to 2016 and welcome 2017, here are 21 tips that will help you and your family stay safe both physically and financially for the next 12 months.

    Tips for a Safe and Prosperous Year:

    1. Review your auto insurance products.  You want to have the right kind of auto insurance and the right amount of auto insurance. Look at your auto insurance to make sure you have the highest liability policy you can afford.  Check to see what optional coverage you have.  Have you upgraded your accident benefits to ensure you are adequately covered in the event of a catastrophic injury?   Don’t wait until you have an accident to find out you don’t have proper coverage.
    2. Check your home and vacation properties for adequate smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.  Start the year knowing that you and your family will be alerted to any fire emergencies in your home by checking for the existence, expiry date and battery life of your alarms.  The peace of mind is worth this very small investment.
    3. Evaluate your disability insurance policy.  This is expensive insurance but it is a lifesaver if you need it.  If you have a policy, have your needs changed since you purchased it?  Had a baby?  Bought a house?  Make sure you have the coverage necessary to meet your basic needs in the event that you become disabled through injury or illness.
    4. Take care of those minor repairs around your home and business that create tripping hazards.  Every single week the personal injury lawyers at Auger Hollingsworth meet with people like you who have been injured on steps, ledges or cracks that could have been easily repaired.  If you occupy a property, you have to keep it free of hazards or face a potential claim for damages if someone is hurt.
    5. Increase the nighttime lighting around your home and business.  A well-lit property is less likely to result in injuries from unseen hazards.  Lighting is also a major deterrent for intruders.  Having your property illuminated also seems more welcoming to your guests or customers.
    6. Read your homeowner’s liability policy, commercial liability policy and / or tenant’s insurance policy to make sure you are adequately  protected. Among other things, these policies cover you if someone is hurt on your property.  If someone is hurt and you do not have enough insurance, the injured person’s lawyer could claim against your assets.  Think about the number of people who visit your property and what hazards exist.  What is the worst thing that could happen?  Would you have insurance to cover that disaster?
    7. Keep a list of all of the maintenance work you do on your property. Have a binder that records when you inspected your property, what upgrades you did, what service contracts you have, how often you shoveled or salted your walk way.  If someone is injured on your property, you don’t have to show that you were perfect, only that your maintenance was reasonable.  A log will help you prove that you were reasonable.
    8. Choose your footwear wisely.  Almost all of the serious slip and fall injury cases Auger Hollingsworth handles involving icy parking lots also involve pedestrians in running shoes, or worse, flat soled dress shoes.  Want to avoid the slip and fall in the first place?  Wear winter boots.  It’s not a guarantee but it sure improves your odds.
    9. If you have a car collision, or a bike collision, or a pedestrian collision, call the police if you are even slightly injured.  The best way to ensure that you will get the correct info from the other driver and that the other driver won’t change his or her story after-the-fact.  The auto insurance will be easier to deal with if you report the accident too.
    10. Leave more space than you think you need between you and the driver ahead of you.  You have no idea what’s going on in that car in front of you.  Is the driver distracted?  Is it a new driver?   If the driver ahead of you stops suddenly and you are caught off guard, you may be at fault for the accident.  Plus, even if you stop in time, if you are very close to the car ahead of you the driver behind you could knock you into the car ahead.  The more impacts you suffer in a collision, the more likely you are to be injured.
    11. If you are even slightly injured after a slip and fall or an auto collision– seek medical attention.  At Auger Hollingsworth we regularly fight with insurance companies for clients who waited weeks to see the doctor after an injury because they assumed it was just a strain or they assumed they would get better quickly.  They didn’t want to “bother” their doctor.  It is much harder to prove that an injury was caused by a particular event if you wait to seek medical advice.
    12. Keep proper snow removal tools in your car.  In almost every collision scenario the personal injury lawyers at Auger Hollingsworth encounter, one driver did not see the other driver in time.  Stay safe by ensuring maximum visibility.  Use a broom or a brush to wipe all of your windows, mirrors, headlights, break lights and hood.
    13. Be aware of short timelines if you are hurt.  If you are hurt on government property there can be outrageously short timelines to give them notice of an injury.  Sometimes, as short as 10 days.  If you are hurt, even if you don’t know if you want to pursue a claim, let the City/ town/province know about the incident within 10 days.  Need help?  The personal injury lawyers at Auger Hollingsworth can help you give proper legal notice.
    14. Wear a helmet while biking, skating, skiing and  skateboarding.  It doesn’t get much more important than your head. Wearing a properly fitting helmet when engaging in sports with a fall or concussion risk just makes sense.
    15. The left-turning vehicle is almost always at fault.  I repeat: The left turning vehicle is almost always at fault.  Turning left is a huge responsibility.  Even if you believe it should be your turn, the oncoming car should stop at the yellow light or you are “positive” you have enough time to turn left, waiting to be absolutely certain is the right move.  The t-bone collisions that happen when a left-hand turn goes badly are almost always serious.
    16. Apply grit to your walkway, sidewalk, driveway and parking lot.  In Ontario in the winter, a lack of salt or sand will almost always result in a slippery surface.  Even if you clear to the pavement, the black ice can wreek its havoc.  Do yourself, your guests and your letter carrier a favour and apply an anti-slip grit after clearing your surfaces.
    17. Use reflectors at night when walking or jogging.  Most of us wear dark clothing when exercising at night– dark leggings, dark shoes and maybe a hat.  The simple addition of reflectors and a night light can make the difference between being visible and safe and a terrible tragedy.  There are great reflecting dog leashes available too.
    18. It’s okay to help.  In Ontario, there is the Good Samaritan Act that states that if you voluntarily provide emergency first aid at the scene of an accident, you cannot be liable for damages arising from that first aid unless you were “grossly negligent”.
    19. Have a good look at the play structure your kids use.  Have your kids avoid playgrounds without proper cushioning underneath.  Wood chips in particular thin over time.  Let the city or the school in charge know if the cushion is wearing out.  Check too for rusty screw heads that have lost their protective cover, latches that don’t fasten properly and other potential hazards.  Every single year the injury lawyers at Auger Hollingsworth make claims on behalf of children who have suffered broken bones and concussions as a result of playgrounds in a state of disrepair.
    20. Double check that your doggie is covered.  If you have a dog, ensure that your homeowner’s insurance or tenant’s insurance covers injuries caused by your pet.  In Ontario, a dog owner is responsible for injuries caused by their dog, not only as a result of biting but also as a result of an “attack”.  Attack has been interpreted broadly.  While most dog owner cases are relatively small dollar cases, there can be very significant exposure in the most horrific dog bite cases that make the headlines.
    21. In the event of an injury caused by someone else, take advantage of Auger Hollingsworth’s free consultation.  We will speak with you over the phone with no obligation to see if you have a case.  If you may have a case, we will meet with you in person, for free, to provide you with info and an assessment of what we can do for you.  We never get paid until you do.

    New Deductibles for Auto Claims

    Monetary Thresholds and Deductibles for Pain and Suffering in your Law Suit against the At-fault Driver

    An Ontario car accident case has to be worth a particular amount of money before the injured person is entitled to get any money at all for pain and suffering.  If your injuries measure below the threshold, there is a deductible.  Since 2015, that deductible has been adjusted with inflation.

    Wondering what threshold applies to your auto injury case?

    The monetary threshold beyond which the deductible amount does not apply is $123,016.99, in the case of damages for pain and suffering for accidents between January 1, 2016 until December 31, 2016.

    The monetary threshold beyond which the deductible amount does not apply is $61,507.99, in the case of damages for a family member’s loss of care, guidance and companionship under the Family Law Act until December 31, 2016.

    Wondering what deductible applies to your auto injury case?

    The deductible for pain and suffering when your damages do not exceed the monetary threshold is $36,905.40 until December 31, 2016.

    The deductible for Family Law Act claims  that do not exceed the monetary threshold is $18,452.70, until December 31, 2016.

    Are you wondering if your case would meet the threshold?  Call Auger Hollingsworth for a free, no pressure consultation.  613-233-4529

     

    Completing the Statutory Accident Benefits Forms

    If you have had a motor vehicle accident, you will probably receive forms from your insurance company to complete.  Alternatively, you might download the forms from the FSCO website.  These forms relate to your application for Statutory Accident Benefits, also known as “no-fault” benefits in Ontario.

    In order to claim Statutory Accident Benefits, you MUST complete these three documents:

    • Application for Accident Benefits (OCF-1)
    • Employer’s Confirmation (OCF-2)
    • Disability Certificate (OCF3).

    You will also receive a Permission to Disclose (OCF5), and Expense Claim (OCF6), a Treatment and Assessment Plan (OCF18)  and a Treatment Confirmation (OCF 23).  These forms are not mandatory and are not needed to start your claim.

    Timelines for Completing the Statutory Accident Benefit Forms

    There are timelines for completing these forms, but being a little but late will usually not cause problems, especially if there is a good reason.

    The Application for Accident Benefits, OCF1, should be submitted within 30 days from the day you receive the forms.

    The Disability Certificate, OCF3, should be submitted within 10 days of the completion of the Application for Accident Benefits.

    Who Should Complete the Statutory Accident Benefit Forms

    The Application for Accident Benefits, OCF1, should be completed by the person applying for accident benefits.  That person is referred to as the “claimant”.  A lawyer or a paralegal can help the claimant complete the form.  Auger Hollingsworth regularly assists clients with this form.

    The Employer’s Confirmation, OCF2, has a section that is completed by the claimant.  The balance of the form is to be completed by the claimant’s employer.  If the claimant has had more than 1 employer over the past 52 weeks, each employer should complete a copy of the OCF2.

    The Disability Certificate, OCF3, has a section that is completed by the claimant.  The balance of the form is to be completed by a health practitioner.  This includes a physician, chiropractor, dentist, occupational therapist, optometrist, psychologist, physiotherapist, nurse practitioner and speech language pathologist.  We highly recommend whenever possible that your PHYSICIAN complete the form.  He or she can submit an invoice for completing the form together with the form.

    Where do you Send the Forms

    If you received the forms directly from your own auto insurer, the return address is probably stamped on the forms, or identified in the cover letter that accompanied the forms.  Send them there.

    If you downloaded the forms, you will have to determine where to send them.  Remember that where you send your forms is not dependent on who was at fault for the accident.  Consider:

    • If you have your own car insurance on your own car, send it to that insurer.  That is true even if your own car was not involved in the accident.
    • If you are listed as a driver on an insurance policy, send it to that insurer.
    • If you are dependent on someone or the spouse of someone who has his / her own insurance or is listed on an insurance policy, send it to that insurer.
    • If you do not have insurance and are not a spouse or dependent of someone with insurance, send the forms to the insurance company that covers the vehicle you were in at the time of the accident.
    • If you do not have insurance and are not a spouse or dependent of someone with car insurance and were struck as a pedestrian or cyclist, send the forms to the insurance company of the vehicle that struck you.
    • If you do not have insurance and are not a spouse or dependent of someone with car insurance and the vehicle you were in does not have insurance, send the forms to the insurance company for any other vehicle involved in the accident.
    • If all else fails, send the forms to the Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund.

    Preparing to Testify at Discovery

    Most Ontario personal injury lawyers will tell you that in 2015, we are facing an upswing in the number of personal injury cases that are going to trial.   Although the vast majority of accident cases still settle at mediation or at a pre-trial, select cases are being slated, quite early in the process, for trial.

    The increased likelihood of a trial means that your evidence at examination for discovery is even more important than ever.  Examination for discovery is the process after a law suit is started where the opposing lawyer asks you questions under oath outside a courtroom setting.  In the United States (and therefore on T.V.) this process is called “deposition”.

    Clients at Auger Hollingsworth receive extensive preparation to testify for examination for discovery.  For example, clients are given a USB key with an audio recording of tips and information about the examination process.  Clients meet with two lawyers in our office (sometimes more) to review their past medical history,  the issues surrounding the accident, and how their injuries have impacted their lives.  During the preparation sessions, we also practice questions and answers so that our clients are comfortable communicating in a straight forward and clear manner.

    Although we provide as much help to prepare our clients for discovery as we can, there are some simple things that our clients can do on their own to prepare for this important step.

     

    1. Look around your home and property to assess what tasks you did before the accident and how long they took.  Your lawyers have not spent much, if any, time in your home.  We will not be able to prompt you or prepare you about particularities of your pre-accident lifestyle.
    2. Review your personal photos for three or so years before the accident.  Reviewing your activities and  your appearance through photos may make the changes in your life more obvious to you and therefore easier to describe.
    3. Your lawyers will have some medical information about you from before the accident.  However, if you had any major medical issues, surgeries or conditions more than 5-7 years before the accident, bring those to your lawyer’s attention.  Pre-existing conditions or past medical history is usually only damaging if it is concealed and then revealed.  Go back through your personal records to make sure you recall dates for older medical issues.
    4. Look at your c.v. to make sure it is accurate and up to date if you will be relying on it for your work and education history.  It’s never a good idea to embellish your resume but it is certainly not a good idea to use an “enhanced” resume in a law suit.
    5. If you have an unusual work set up, bring this to your lawyer’s attention.  Most of our clients are salaried employees.  If you are on commission, self employed and take a draw, get paid through spouse’s company for income splitting or anything else that is unsual, make sure you have a clear understanding of the details of how it works.  Many discoveries get bogged down when the witness cannot explain how they are paid.

    Examination for Discovery is not a ton of fun.  That’s the truth!  However, the feeling after discovery when you know you have “nailed it” is great.  A great witness at discovery always increases the value of the case, either at settlement or at trial.

    For more information about examination for discovery or your Ontario Personal Injury case, call us at 613 233-4529.

     

    How is my lawyer calculating my damages claim?

    There are a number of factors that come into play when a personal injury lawyer calculates the damages for a particular accident.  Damages are calculated on a case by case basis and reflect the specific circumstances of the accident in question.  That being said, damages for injury cases in Ontario are also based on precedent.  This means that your damages claim is determined by what other victims with similar injuries have received in the past.

     

    After studying your case, your injury lawyer will be able to determine the range of damages you may be eligible for.  Precedent dictates the range of damages for a particular accident/injury, and the specific facts of your case will determine where you fall in that range.

     

    Before looking at the precedent relevant to your case, your lawyer will determine if you are eligible for pecuniary damages (economic loss) and/or non-pecuniary damages (pain and suffering).  In doing so, your lawyer will consider any loss of income you may have suffered, any extra cost of housekeeping as a result of your injuries, among other things.  The more evidence you can provide of any financial loss or pain you have incurred as a result of the accident, the better your chances are of having a successful damages claim.  Any information you can provide regarding how the accident has negatively impacted your life will help your case.

     

    One final, but important factor in determining your damages is mitigation.  Mitigation means that an injured person must take reasonable steps to reduce or minimize the loss they suffered due to an accident.  Examples of such measures include attending medical appointments in a reasonable time and following medical advice.  It is important that you demonstrate your efforts to recover from your injuries and to get back to a normal life after your accident.  Failure to mitigate the impact of the accident on your life can negatively impact your damages claim.

     

    The personal injury lawyers at Auger Hollingsworth can advise you on how to mitigate your losses and can answer any further questions you may have about calculating the damages for your injury claim.  Call us at 613 233-4529.

    5 Things You Can DO Today to IMPROVE your accident case

    5 Things you can do today to improve your car accident case

     

    If you have recently been in a car accident, you may feel overwhelmed and unsure about what to do.  As Ottawa personal injury lawyers, we have had many clients ask us about what they can do to help their case.  There are five simple ways that you can contribute to the success of your car accident claim.

     

    1. First, whether you have minor or serious injuries, it is important to keep all of your medical appointments.  This may seem obvious, but going to all of your scheduled appointments with doctors, physiotherapists, chiropractors, etc. demonstrates that you take your injuries, and your case, seriously.
    2. Secondly, seek all the medical attention necessary, and in doing so, use the maximum of your employment health benefits.  Not only will this give you the maximum benefit of medical care, but it demonstrates your efforts to address your injuries using all of your resources.
    3. It is also important for you to describe your symptoms consistently and accurately.  In order to improve the likelihood of having a successful claim, there must be a record of your all of your symptoms and injuries.  Each detail contributes to an accurate and complete description of the injuries you suffered in the accident.
    4. Just as it is important for you to seek all necessary medical advice, it is also essential that you follow all treatment recommendations.  Only by following the recommendations of your doctors will you begin to heal from your injuries.  It also improves your car accident case if you pursue all treatment options.
    5. Lastly, a good personal injury lawyer can provide important legal advice and guidance.  As experts in the field of car accident claims, the personal injury lawyers at Auger Hollingsworth offer invaluable experience to help you make a successful claim.  By following all of these steps, you can be assured that you are doing everything you can to improve your case.

    Making a Claim after an Accident While on Vacation

    The last thing you want is to get injured on vacation.  It happens.  Fairly often, in fact!

    • Injured in the United States?

    Most of the time if you are injured in the U.S., it will not be that difficult to figure out what to do.  In many states there is no shortage of personal injury lawyers who line the highways with billboards.  The lawyers at Auger Hollingsworth have many great connections to excellent trustworthy American lawyers.  If you need a referral to a lawyer in any U.S. state, please call us.  We will happily listen to your story and refer you to someone we know and trust.  There will never be a fee for this service.  Call us at 613 233-4529.

    If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident in the U.S. and you have car insurance in Ontario, or live with a family member who has car insurance, you should contact an Ontario personal injury lawyer.  Most often,  your own auto  insurance company will be involved in cases involving U.S. car accidents, even if you were not at fault in the accident or were just a passenger, pedestrian or cyclist.  This is true even if your own vehicle was parked in your garage in Ottawa while you had your accident in Nebraska or Idaho. (Okay, probably Florida, we know.)

    For example, you will have access to statutory accident benefits to cover some of your health care costs, lost wages and related expenses.

    You will also likely have access to the Family Protection Endorsement (also known as OPCF 44R).  Many drivers in the U.S. have much lower insurance policy limits that we have in Ontario.   The OPCF 44R will require your own insurance to “top up”  your compensation if the American at fault driver’s insurance is not enough to cover your loss.  Yes, you should have a lawyer for this.  No, it will not affect your insurance rates.

    • Injured Outside Canada and the US?

    Accidents at Caribbean resorts, Mexico or in Central or South American countries present more complicated issues.  You will almost always need a lawyer to navigate the issues if you are looking for compensation.  Questions you need to ask include:

    o   Can I sue for damages in this country?

    o   What can I be compensated for?  Pain and Suffering?  Lost wages? Medical Expenses?

    o   How can I find a lawyer?

    o   Is there a limitation period?  This is very important.  Some countries have VERY short time periods in which to bring a claim.

    Keep in mind that the laws of your host country will apply to any law suit.  You will only be able to recover compensation if the company or person you are suing has assets or insurance.

    Often, it will be unwise to count on being able to sue a foreign person or company for injuries they cause, even if they are actually negligent.  To safeguard your financial well-being before heading out on vacation,  review your disability policies and travel health insurance to make certain that they are valid and adequate to meet your needs.

    If you are renting a car or other motorized vehicle outside of Canada and the U.S. make sure you purchase insurance.  Find out if the insurance offers protection to you in the event of an accident in the form of accident benefits, uninsured motorist or unidentified motorist coverage.

    • Can I sue in Ontario for Injuries Suffered Abroad?

    The Supreme Court of Canada actually looked at this issue in April 2012 in a decision called Club Resorts Ltd. v. Van Breda.   The case involved two separate (unrelated) accidents in Cuba.  In one case the vacationer was very seriously injured.  In the other case the vacationer was killed.

    The Court ruled that the injured person (or his family) could sue in Ontario if one of the following factors existed:
    • The vacation company was established in Ontario
    • The vacation company was doing business in Ontario
    • The injury happened in Ontario
    • A contract connected with the dispute was made in Ontario.

    Practically speaking, if you use an Ontario travel agent and / or an Ontario tour company, you are more likely to satisfy this test.  Being able to sue in Ontario is a very significant advantage when compared to having to travel to the foreign country (while injured or grieving) to litigate.  This is particularly true where there are language and cultural barriers.

    Getting Health Care after An Accident Out of Ontario

    It’s almost March Break!  After the winter we’ve had, who wouldn’t want to get out of dodge and onto some sunny tropical island.  It is time for vacation.   The living is easy….until…uh oh… you have had an accident while on vacation outside Ontario.

    • Get Appropriate Medical Care

    Naturally, you will want to get medical care immediately.  Do you have proper travel health insurance?  The Government of Ontario warns Ontario residents that there is “very limited” coverage for out of country health care.

    OHIP does not pay for out of country ambulance services, transportation costs or drugs or prescriptions.

    • Hopefully, You were Vigilant About What Travel Insurance You Selected

    Make sure you understand the terms and conditions of the travel health insurance you have purchased.  In particular, be aware of the effect of any pre-existing health conditions on your coverage.  For example, if you have a pre-existing health condition that requires medical care while you are out of Ontario, you may have trouble securing coverage if the policy you purchased excludes pre-existing conditions.

    Coverage varies a lot from between different insurers.  Different insurers may also have different levels of coverage.  Spend some time investigating what you need before selecting your travel insurer.

    Finally, injuries from some high risk or extreme sports may not be covered in your travel health insurance.  Check the fine print before you get on that zip line.

    • Can’t Find Appropriate Medical Care?

    If you have difficulty finding appropriate medical care, the Canadian embassy, consulate or High Commission can help.   They can provide you with information about medical care in the area, help you arrange for a medical evacuation, help you contact your family, etc.  However, they cannot pay for your medical care.

    If you have had an accident while on vacation out of Ontario, claiming compensation is tricky and almost always will require the assistance of a lawyer to help you figure out where to claim and against whom.  The lawyers at Auger Hollingsworth would be pleased to assist you at this difficult time.  Call us today at 613 -233-4529.

     

    How waiting too long to meet a lawyer can hurt your Ontario car accident case

    Many accident victims wonder how soon is too soon to call a lawyer after a motor vehicle accident.

    The truth is, after you have dealt with the police and secured medical attention, a call to an experienced personal injury lawyer is often your next best call.

    Speaking to a lawyer early in the process does the following:

    • Ensures you know how to handle your telephone call to the insurance company;
    • Ensures you know what notes to make in the days after the accident;
    • Ensures you have an opportunity to take the right photos before vehicles are disposed of an road conditions have been altered;
    • Ensures that you know how to preserve the motor vehicle’s “black box”.

    A lawyer can also help you to provide early notice to the insurer of the at fault vehicle.

    Even if you are not certain you want to make a claim, and even if you are not certain that your injuries are serious, getting early advice from a lawyer you can trust can make a very big difference to the outcome of your compensation down the road.

    To speak with an Ottawa personal injury lawyer, at no cost or obligation, call Auger Hollingsworth at 613 233-4529.  We’d be happy to explain your rights, even if you decide you won’t ultimately hire a lawyer.

    Rollover Accident on Blair Road at the 417 Overpass

    Vehicle rollover accidents are among the most serious car accidents we see at Auger Hollingsworth.  Whether it’s a single vehicle accident or a rollover following a collision between two vehicles, it is rare for the driver and passengers in these serious accidents to all escape unharmed.

    Saturday, September 20, 2014 a mother and her two children were in a car that flipped after a collision on the Blair Road overpass.  News sources indicate that both children and their mother were injured in the accident, at least one of them seriously.

    Following a major motor vehicle accident like this one, it is important to consult with a local personal injury lawyer promptly.  Before making important decisions about one’s case, or one’s children’s case, it is vital to get unbiased information to help you deal with your own insurance company, as well as the insurance company from any other involved vehicle.

    How do you do that?  Most Ottawa personal injury lawyers offer free, no-obligation consultations to accident victims and their loved ones.  At Auger Hollingsworth, a lawyer will meet you at your home, in the hospital or at one of our two convenient locations– Woodroffe Avenue or O’Connor Street.

    Wondering what to do after a serious car accident?  Call our firm at 613 233-4529 and we will provide you with the information you need to protect your rights.
