  • Woodroffe Ave Pedestrian Accident Injures Ottawa Woman

    OTTAWA-  The Ottawa intersection of Woodroffe and Medhurst in Ottawa was the scene of a pedestrian accident on December 7, 2012 according to CBC News.

    A woman is reported to have slipped before being run over by a Dodge Caravan minivan.  She suffered serious injuries to her legs before emergency services were able to extract her from beneath the vehicle.

    Have you suffered an Ottawa Pedestrian Accident?

    After an Ottawa pedestrian accident, there are important steps you should take right away to get the help you need and the compensation you deserve.

    1.  Get appropriate medical help immediately, and follow up with your medical team regularly.  Many people go to their chiropractor or physiotherapist soon after a pedestrian accident.  While it can be a very good idea to jump start your rehabilitation, make sure you also see a medical doctor, either at the hospital, urgent care centre, your family health clinic or a walk-in clinic.  As your claim progresses, you may be disadvantaged if you have not seen an actual doctor.

    2. Contact your own auto insurance company after a pedestrian accident.  This suggestion surprises many pedestrian accident victims.  Your own auto insurer will provide your statutory accident benefit coverage.  This coverage includes income replacement benefits, medical -rehabilitation benefits to pay for medical services not covered by OHIP and certain other specified benefits.  Call your insurance company to get the appropriate application forms.

    3.  Meet with a personal injury lawyer for a free consultation.  If you have suffered a serious injury after a pedestrian accident in Ottawa, the personal injury lawyers at Auger Hollingsworth would be pleased to discuss you case.  Find out if you have a claim for damages for pain and suffering, lost wages or other types of losses.  Our accident lawyers can be reached at 613-860-4529.  We can meet you at our convenient west end location which offers free no-hassle parking.

    Remember, in most cases, you have two years to begin your law suit.  However, in some situations there are shorter notice periods.  Contact a lawyer today to make sure your rights are protected.
