Long term disability benefits can be received till 65 years of age and the amount of benefits is reduced if you get disability benefits from other sources like Canada Pension Plan (CPP).

Falls are one of the Top Reasons Canadians are Getting Injured

Global News
The Global And Mail
Huffington Post

Accidental falls have been stated to be the most common cause of injury in Canada by the Canadian Institute for Health Insurance. These often lead to a trip to the emergency department and occasionally the injuries are severe. In 2017, it was reported that 1800 people rushed to ED after sustaining a fall and out of these, 417 people needed to stay overnight at the hospital. Elderly people were the ones with severe injuries while children and young adults were also recorded.

Injuries caused by slip and fall increase during the winter season because of snow, ice, and other slippery conditions. Although the government of Canada tries to do its best to maintain non-slipper sidewalks and other surfaces but even a single patch can make an individual fall down and break a bone.

Most Common Injuries after Slip and Fall

The most common types of injuries sustained after a slip and fall accident in Canada are:

1. Head injury
2. Broken lower leg and ankle
3. Broken hip

Hip injuries happen very commonly when a person falls down while walking but this problem is very serious for seniors because, at their age, they lack the physical strength to completely heal and may end up with a lifelong problem. Complications related to hip injury can be fatal too.

Reduce the Risk of Falling

Falling happens by accident and there isn’t much you can do to protect yourself. Nonetheless, there are few precautions that will keep you safe in the winters:

1. Wear shoes with deep treads during winter to reduce your chances of slipping.
2. Be careful while going down the stairs and if it’s wet, hold on to the handrail.
3. Pay attention to the floor you are walking on and if it’s wet/icy be extra cautious.
4. Try to avoid walking on cracked sidewalks and poorly maintained walkways.

They can help you with most types of personal injuries including catastrophic accident litigation, slip and fall, motor vehicle accident and claims related to them.

Pedestrian Dead, Driver Sought After in Ontario Hit and Run Case

CTV News

Peel Regional Police say that a man has died after an alleged hit and run in Mississauga, Ontario. According to the police, the said incident happened on Friday evening, i.e. on 30th of November, 2018. It is believed that the 54-year-old man was crossing the road when he was hit by a car. He died on the spot because of his injuries.

Police has said that the person driving the car did not stop and fled the scene. They are on a lookout now and are looking for a red colored Dodge Challenger manufactured in 2017 or 2018. This vehicle is also missing the right side mirror. The Police have also mentioned that the car is damaged on the right side, including the headlight and the bumper.

Peel Regional Police are asking the public to help them find the suspect and they have asked individuals to step forward if they have any knowledge about the accident.

Canada has seen a rise in pedestrian death in the last few years despite the government’s best efforts to make roads safer for people on their feet. 2017 was recorded as deadly in Ontario because of a hike in the number of deaths caused by accidents on the road. 2018 has been no better.

Individuals who are charged under Ontario’s hit and run law may have to face up to six months in prison. They may also lose the driving license and will have to pay a fine ranging between $600 and $2,000. Individuals who fail to remain at the scene of the accident may also see a steep hike in their insurance premiums.

CTV News Toronto

A 31 years old woman and her 2-year-old son were killed when the vehicle they were traveling in was involved in a two-vehicle crash in Mississauga on November 1st, 2018. The woman, her son and her 33-year-old husband were traveling to Burnhamthrope when their vehicle was struck by a Hyundai which was heading north towards Mavis.

According to police, the suspect vehicle continued to travel north after the impact for another 50-75 meters, after which it stopped and at a sidewalk and then it caught fire. This vehicle was being driven by an 18-year-old driving, who managed to get out of the vehicle on time.

The woman’s husband who was driving the car has sustained life-threatening injuries and was taken to the hospital at around 2 am when the emergency services were called. He had slipped into a coma for several days and as of 27th November, he is still there, receiving treatment. The 18-year-old suspect was also taken to the hospital and treated for his injuries and released.

After almost a month of the accident, on 27th November, the 18-year-old was arrested again and charged with two counts of criminal negligence causing death and one count of criminal negligence causing bodily harm. The suspect has been identified as Evan Campbell of Orillia.

Friends and family had identified the victims as Sanket Dogra, 33, his wife Khushbu Aroro, 31 and their 2-year-old son Pakrit. The family lived only a few miles away from the crash site. Sanket Dogra works in the tech industry and had shifted his wife and son to Canada, just a year ago.

Short-term Disability Benefits

If you have suffered an injury that has resulted in disability for a short period, you may have an opportunity to sue the person or the organization for causing harm and costing you income-earning opportunities. This will also allow you to seek compensation.

You can approach Kalsi & Associates personal injury lawyers to seek legal advice and know whether your situation qualifies you for short-term disability benefits. Some employers do offer short-term disability benefits to their employees. The length of time that you need to be unable to work in order to qualify for these benefits varies from company to company.

You should first acquaint yourself with the rules and regulations of your company on this topic and try and avail any benefits of this policy if they are available. For those, who don’t have short-term disability benefit, there is an opportunity to qualify for Employment Insurance Sickness Benefits.

Whatever be your situation, Kalsi & Associates personal injury lawyers will provide you sound legal advice and help you in knowing your entitlements resulting from a purchased policy or due to being a member of any organization.

You may also require legal advice if you have insurance coverage and the companies are unwilling to provide cover for your short-term disability. As you may know or have experienced, insurance companies can often have very convoluted procedures and rules which might be difficult for a layman to understand. In such situations, our team of lawyers will help you in navigating the labyrinthine maze of regulations and allow you to gain those benefits which you are entitled to.

Remember, while we never wish anyone to suffer even the mildest injury, one never knows when and how he could be affected by an accident. If you find yourself in such a situation, don’t despair thinking of yourself as alone and helpless, we will have your back.

PERSONAL INJURY CLAIMS FROM PUBLIC AUTHORITIES

If you have suffered an injury in a public place or facility as a result of the negligence of public authorities, then you may have a good chance to claim compensation from those authorities. Kalsi & Associates personal injury lawyers would be happy to look into your case and offer you a proper legal advice.

Rules may vary according to different states. Also, unlike an accident, it may often be hard to prove the fault of authorities in a place like a park or a swimming pool in case of an accident. In order to successfully surmount these legal challenges and get proper compensation, you will require help from people who have experience working in this area. That is exactly what you will find on contacting Kalsi & Associates personal injury lawyers Toronto.

What is most difficult in such cases is establishing a link between the cause of your accident and the person responsible. Often such cases end up going nowhere because people keep shifting blame to the person above or below them. This culture of passing the buck is a hallmark of bureaucracies around the world and even in a well-administered place like the Greater Toronto Area where the bureaucracy functions much more smoothly and effectively than other parts of the world, you can run into this problem.

One thing you need to remember is that evidence is the key and collection of evidence is most easily accomplished the earlier you begin. Hence, it is important for you to act as soon as it is possible for you. The more time that you take, the more difficult would be the task.

But do remain assured that we would be committed to helping you. Our team of legal experts would review the situation and make you well acquainted with your legal options.

ROAD SAFETY MEASURES IN GREATER TORONTO AREA

Source:

Toronto City News

Road safety has emerged as a major issue in the Greater Toronto Area. This is one of the side-effects of the growth that this part of Canada has been experiencing in recent times and is likely to do so in the future as well.

The decline in road safety has been seen in both the growing number of pedestrian fatalities as well as collisions of vehicles. The local government has decided to act on this problem by launching a ‘Vision Zero’ road safety plan for 2017-2021 which aims to make the roads of this teeming metropolis safer.

Fatalities thanks to traffic accidents have gone up in recent years. In 2016, 77 people died due to road accidents. 43 of them were pedestrians, the largest segment. Not surprisingly then, the main focus of the authorities has been on making the roads safer for pedestrians. The overall strategy would involve using technology, educating people about road safety and stronger enforcement of laws.

When it comes to pedestrian safety, the authorities will identify those roads and zones which have been most accident-prone and take effective steps like reducing the crossing distance, enforcing speed regulations, protecting turning points etc. to bring down the casualty rate.

While this program was launched last year, this year too, the mayor and local administrators have taken strong steps to end the menace of road accidents. In March, the then Mayor John Tory unveiled some of the steps taken in this direction.

The same month also saw the councilors of Toronto vote in favor of similar measures to reduce the number of traffic accidents. One proposal though has generated diverse opinions. This is about creating lanes exclusively for bikes. The councilors want lanes for bikes while the mayor wants these lanes on a parallel street.

Whatever be the outcome of this debate, it is very reassuring that the local officials are tackling this problem head-on.

Sidhu Gets Bail in Dangerous Driving Case

Global News

Jaskirat Singh Sidhu, accused of dangerous driving after his semi-trucks collision with the team bus of Humboldt Broncos on April 6, has been given bail against a surety of $1,000. As per the bail arrangements, Sidhu had to surrender his passport and follow a curfew that restricts him to his house and prohibits him from driving.

16 people died in the horrible crash of April 6 and the fatalities included players and other members of Saskatchewan junior hockey team. 13 more suffered injuries. Sidhu was remanded into police custody on July 6 and was arrested at 10:07 AM on that day from his home. The next hearing of the case will take place on August 21.

29-year old Sidhu is facing 16 charges of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death and 13 of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily injury. Superintendent Derek Williams, officer-in-charge of the major crimes unit, said in a statement last week about the presence of “evidence that motor vehicle was being operated in a way that was dangerous to the public.”

Sidhu reportedly works for called Adesh Deol trucking company. This company does not face any charges at the present moment. Director of the company, Sukmander Singh, came forward to say that the driver had been working for his company for around a month when this tragedy took place. Singh is the only person who was working in this trucking company which was subsequently suspended for the course of this investigation.

Driver To Torontonian Bystander: ‘Looks Like Another Dead Cyclist’

CBC Radio

After allegedly following a Toronto cyclist down a tight alleyway last week, an agitated driver blared his horn and declared, “Looks like another dead cyclist.”

Colin Powell claims the motorist was attempting to convince him from behind to steer his bicycle in another direction while approaching an alley close to Toronto’s Little Italy neighborhood. The driver’s constant screaming and honking eventually “rattled” Powell, who stopped his bike to collect himself after the alleged harasser yelled the aforementioned threat and began pulling into his garage.

“There’s no space to move. There’s definitely not space for a bike and a car to be next to each other,” Powell recalled to As It Happens CBC Radio host Carol Off.

The incident was immediately reported to Toronto police, who cited privacy concerns in declining to confirm whether an official report had been filed.

“This is a police matter and it’s not our job to tell the police how to do their jobs. But an act like that — a threat like that — needs to be followed up on,” said Toronto Coun. Mike Layton.

Toronto police last week arrested a 27-year-old Oshawa man now facing charges in a fatal hit-and-run accident.

Jesse Petroff ended the life of a 50-year-old woman, later identified by family as Isabel Soria, when his Dodge Ram pickup truck struck her around 3 p.m. on June 11 at the intersection of Dufferin Street and Briar Hill Avenue. Police said surveillance footage and still, photos confirmed the driver left his stopped vehicle and approached the victim but immediately got back into his vehicle and fled the scene. Clear photos of the vehicle released Thursday accompanying a plea for citizens to provide any relevant information about its whereabouts and driver led to an arrest later that day.

Petroff now faces charges of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death, criminal negligence causing death, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and failure to stop at the scene of an accident causing death.

Kalsi & Associates Raises Concern over The New Insurance Plan in Ontario

CTV News

THE STAR

A recent report on the state of Ontario’s Auto Insurance Systems shows that we have one of the least effective systems in play. While there’s a decrease in the number of accidents, the opposite is evident on the number of claims. They have gone up.

With the aim of reducing the insurance premiums, the government is working on introducing the “Fair Auto Insurance Plan.” It has been a topic of discussion since last year. This new plan aims at reducing fraud cases and costs in the Auto Insurance industry.

One of the areas of concern by many Personal Injury Lawyers and Kalsi & Associates included is the new plan will make it more difficult for one to qualify for a particular coverage, in case of an accident. Though the project will save the public regarding auto insurance premiums, it may be to the detriment of victims of accidents.

According to the plan, the treatment plans for common injuries that result from collisions will be standard. Also, medical assessment for those with severe injuries due to an accident will be by neutral and independent centers for examination. Now, you will not go to a family doctor or your specialist for assessment.

You will have to go to a designated assessment center. It may result in an assessment that is not comprehensive, thorough, or even well-reasoned. As we wait to see what measures the development plans for this new system will take; feel free to contact Kalsi & Associates at (844) 905-2993, for your Personal Injury cases, or apply online.

Parking lots are not only prone to violent episodes but can pose a hazard for Slip and Fall Accidents. Many workplaces are close to Parking Lots. You may not be working there, but you are still at risk of injury, in any parking lot.

Some of the factors that contribute to such accidents include deteriorating surfaces. When walking in a parking lot, watch where you step. Flat and even surfaces, are the ideal places to walk on. Avoid walking on gratings or broken pavement.

Also, watch for spillage of oil where cars are parked. They aggravate the situation. Antifreeze and weather conditions may also increase the risk of a slip and fall. Look out for speed bumps. They may cause you to trip.

Pay attention to any tire stops, as you walk. During winter it is appropriate to wear anti-slip footwear. If you notice any hazardous conditions in the parking lot, report it to the relevant bodies.

Be on the lookout at all times. When you are in a parking lot, watch out for both fall hazards and cars. If by an unfortunate event you happen to have a slip and fall accident, due to the negligence of another, contact our expert personal injury lawyers at Kalsi & Associates, at (844) 905-2993

A transport truck that was carrying phosphine overturned near St. Catherines. This event happened on Wednesday last week, around 3:20 pm, according to the OPP. Phosphine is usually, odorless and colorless.
 
Even though, it is highly flammable, volatile and toxic; it is used to fumigate and control pests in farms. The gas attacks the human body, like a military-grade nerve gas; and could explode by exposure to water, according to the Canadian Press Report.
 
The incident led to the evacuation and shelter-in-place order for residents and businesses as several lanes were closed. A shelter was set up at Seymour-Hannah Sports and Entertainment Centre, and residents asked to shut their windows and turn off their air conditioners.
 
Tests carried out showed no traces of leakage of the toxic material. There were no injuries reported due to the incident. Most lanes were reopened several hours later, around 3:30 am.

Garden City Skyway Closed after Truck Flips over

A pickup truck flipped over after colliding with a car, at around 9.00 am, Thursday, on the eastbound lanes of QEW. The force caused the truck to flip over the median and into oncoming traffic. It then led to a chain reaction of collisions along the highway.
 
At least six vehicles were involved in the crash, including a transport truck that was hauling several vehicles, a dump truck, SUV, and several other vehicles. One man was trapped in the debris; luckily, he was extracted and transported to the hospital with only minor injuries.
 
The Ontario Provincial Police had to close most of the westbound lanes for about two hours to give room for clearing the wreckage. Traffic on the roads was given time to subside before the lanes were closed a second time.
 
It was to allow investigators to access the scene of the accident, safely. Traffic had to be steered off the highway. In turn, it led to the slow flow of traffic in the city.
 
Investigations into the cause of the collision are still underway. Traffic is back to normal as the lanes have since been reopened.

More about the Slow Down and Move Over Legislation

Source:

ONTARIO

Yes, the law requires you to slow down as you approach an “official” vehicle that has stopped and has its amber, red or blue lights flashing, the same way you would react to an emergency vehicle, i.e. a police car, ambulance, etc. The legislation includes utility workers, garbage collectors, animal control workers, etc., to give them room to fulfill their duties in safety.
 
As a driver, you will need to decrease your speed as you approach a stopped vehicle. For safe braking, brake early and gradually as you get full control of your vehicle. As you slow down, you will be adjusting the flow of traffic around you and thus prevent any incidents that would lead yours or other vehicles, colliding.
 
If you are on the road with more than one lane, you need to change from one lane to another safely. That is the lane(s) without the emergency car or tow truck. Be on the lookout for fast approaching automobiles. If the road is undivided, then, all motorists approaching the vehicle from both sides should slow down.
 
There have been accidents cases that have involved workers at the roadside, leading to their injuries and even death. Don’t add to the number of accident reports that to file at the nearby Accident Reporting Centre.
 
Remember to Slow Down and Move Over if and, when you see lights flashing, red, blue or amber on a stopped vehicle on the road. Give room for the operators to be safe as they help those in need.

  • How it affects the value of services that you offer at home

An injury could limit you in a way that you may need to hire help from, say a nanny, to take your kids to school, pick them up, clean the house, cook and many other activities that you would carry out usually. Make a list of all the duties that you perform in the home to help you estimate the value of damages.
 
You will need to have evidence to show that it is possible for you to earn a degree of income, should you choose to return to work. You can use your education level or training to compare with others at the same levels, who are currently working. Suffering long-term injuries could lead to being suitable for a lower level job.

Determining the Severity of an Injury

ABI NETWORK

Are you involved in an accident? Did you suffer any injuries? The common injuries suffered in an accident include brain, neck injury or whiplash and even spinal cord injuries.
 
If you suffer a brain injury after an accident, how is the severity measured? The seriousness of a brain injury is determined by where in the brain you have an injury. The swelling that occurs and how much of your brain is injured, matters.
 
Medical experts will conduct tests such as:

  • Electroencephalograms or otherwise known as EEGs
  • Taking CT Scans to help them understand the extent of the injuries to the brain.

However, the tests are not enough to assist in determining how severe the injury is. In such instances, they will need to use additional techniques. Popular methods used are, GCS or the Glasgow Comma Scale, in conjunction with the length of time that the patient has Post Traumatic Amnesia.
 
PTA is where the patient has troubles thinking, concentrating, remembering, etc. What can you use to estimate how fast one recovers? The recovery time taken by each patient depends on:

  • Their age
  • General health
  • Whether they suffer other injuries
  • The type and seriousness of the injury that they suffer, etc.

The more serious the injuries, the longer it takes to recover. For a FREE consultation approach Kalsi & Associates, a team of personal Injury Lawyers to discuss your confidential matter.

Canada: Uber – Are You Covered Under Insurance If Injured?

Source: Mondaq

Everyone already knows what Uber is. What many riders and drivers need to understand, however, is that there can be some issues regarding coverage related to car accidents while in or involving an Uber car.

Prior to July 2016, if a rider or a driver had a car accident with an Uber driver in which the Uber driver was at fault, the insurer of the Uber driver could have denied third-
party liability coverage. That could happen because, under the standard policy of insurance that is provided to individual drivers in Ontario, there is an exclusion clause thatstates thatif the automobile is being used to carry passengers for remuneration coverage may not be extended to the driver. In the situation, the Uber driver could be personally exposed to a claim for damages resulting from a personal injury.

Also, if the Uber driver is also injured in thecar accident, he or she would be restricted as to what no-fault Accident Benefits they would be able to receive under their policy of insurance. Should the insurer find a breach of the policy, the available Accident Benefits would be restricted to medical rehabilitation benefits only and no income replacement benefitsor compensation for other expenses.

But it has changed, at least for Uber drivers who are also Intact Insurance clients.They are now covered under the Uber commercial policy that is offered through Intact Insurance.

This policy of insurance is offered in phases which have different corresponding insurance coverages.The first phase is when the app is turned on and before the driver accepts a trip. During this stage, the Uber driver is covered for a maximum of $1,000,000 third party liability coverage. The second phase is from when the driver accepts the trip, through when the passenger is in the vehicle and ends when the passenger exits the vehicle. Under the commercial policy for this stage, Uber drivers are covered for a maximum of $2,000,000 third party liability coverage. After the trip ends and the Uber application is switched off, the insurance coverage is not applicable anymore.Because of that, drivers must also carry a personal auto policy.

With Uber becoming more and more popular, it is expected that more insurers will offer this coverage or a similar type of coverage in the near future. This insurance is important because it not only allows the Uber driver to be protected from being personally exposed should they be sued but also protects individuals injured when involved in a collision with an Uber car.

Despite the increase in the number of deaths, Ontario is not increasing penalties for distracted driving

Source: Global NEWS

According to the OPP (Ontario Provincial Police), in 2016, the number of deaths related to distracted driving car accidents have exceeded the ones related to impaired driving for the first time since 2009, when distracted driving laws were introduced in Ontario. In August, the OPP investigated 38 deaths related to distracted driving and 19 deaths related to impaired driving.

Although the numbers are rising, there are no plans to increase the penalties for distracted drivers. Steven Del Duca, Ontario Transportation Minister, states this is a decision for the federal government. When asked what more could be done to avoid car accidents motivated by distracted driving, Del Duca mentioned a recent public awareness campaign launched by the provincial government and the rules that increased the fine for distracted driving to $490 and three demerit points.

Opposition parties are demanding more from the government. If you are ever involved in a car accident in Ontario (Brampton, Mississauga or Toronto), there is still hope for justice.

Documents that help you prove your case after an accident.

Documents that help you prove your case after an accident

When involved in an accident, people are often unaware on how to proceed. With so much to think about, in many cases they can end up without enough information to make an accident claim. Since accidents are unpredictable, being informed is essential. Find out what are the documents to gather before making an accident claim.

It is extremely important that the documentation that you provide can prove that the accident actually happened. Therefore, police reports, photos, medical records and witness statements are helpful.

In order to prove there is another person at-fault for the accident you were involved in, your documents have to be detailed. When you provide the police report, you will have the aspects of the accident from an official perspective, including the damages it caused and a more detailed observation of the scene. Witnesses can add to your case by giving their perception of the accident, sometimes providing details that you were not able to see from your perspective. By providing photos of the accident, the evidence is visual and, after an extensive analysis, it can even help to discover how the accident actually happened.

Medical documentation is also extremely important. It helps give an idea of what you have gone through in terms of injuries. Although it is impossible to put a price on someone else’s pain and suffering, injury lawyers will endeavour to make sure that you are compensated fairly.

It is difficult to understand what goes through the mind of someone that has been injured in an accident. Not only do they have to get medical help, but also collect information from the at fault party and witnesses, and so on. Some might not even know that they have, indeed, the right to be compensated for their injury and all the costs involved.

With Accident Benefits, you can get compensation if you, your passengers or pedestrians are injured or killed due to a motor vehicle accident, no matter who is at fault in the situation. It usually covers medical and rehabilitation services, loss of income due to the fact that the victim is unable to work and overall expenses.

In the province of Ontario, when you have automobile insurance, you can get your compensation from the insurer even if you are injured in someone else’s vehicle. When you do not have automobile insurance, you can be compensated from the policy for the vehicle you are in at the time of the accident.

Those are only some facts about Accident Benefits, but without the assistance of a team of personal injury lawyers, it is really possible that you will not get a fair amount of compensation for your injury. If you or a loved one is a victim of a motor vehicle accident in Ontario, contact Kalsi & Associates at 1-844-905-2993 for immediate help.

Kalsi & Associates advises: be careful during Halloween

Kalsi & Associates advises: be careful during Halloween

Contact: 1-844-905-2993
Email: info@kalsilaw.com

Summer is almost coming to an end and, with fall, Halloween is one of the first things that comes to our minds. Although it is a fun time of the year for both children and adults, parents should be warned about the risks of danger and injuries. As a matter of fact, children are more likely to suffer from a motor vehicle accident (and other kinds of accidents as well) on Halloween than at any other time during the year. That mostly happens because they go trick or treating at night when streets are darker.

Since this is a big issue that can be avoided, Kalsi & Associates has gathered some tips that will help parents keep their kids safe from any injuries during Halloween.

When trick-or-treating, never let your kids walk around the neighborhood without supervision. Even when there is an older child or a teenager leading a group of kids, you should always review their route to make sure that you know exactly where they will be and set a time for them to be back home. You should also advise your kids to never cross the street between cars and to pay extra attention to lights and cars that might appear. If your kid does not have a cellphone, lend them an old one just to answer your calls or to call you if something happens. When the kids are safe at home, do not forget to inspect the candy they were given before allowing them to eat it. Sometimes it could be contaminated.

With that in mind, dress your kid in a safe and comfortable costume , choose a pair of shoes that fit perfectly to prevent them from falling, give him or her a lantern and they are good to go

If those tips are not enough to prevent you or a loved one of being injured during Halloween in Ontario, do not hesitate to contact Kalsi & Associates before making a personal injury claim. A free initial consultation with our team of caring personal injury lawyers can be the starting point for you to be rightfully compensated.

10 common motor vehicle accident injuries

10 common motor vehicle accident injuries

Unfortunately, a car accident can happen anytime and anywhere, changing someone’s life forever. Before you ever find yourself or a loved one involved in a car accident at some point, it is important to know what are the most common injuries that can occur in a car accident and how they can be treated. This way, it is easier to know the best place to get help and recover faster, but remember that every case is unique and only a health care professional can give the specific diagnosis.

 

Neck injuries

Car accidents victims commonly experience cases of whiplash, that causes damage to the neck muscles and ligaments. Victims diagnosed with whiplash often show symptoms of pain and muscle stiffness in the neck, lower back, hand, arm, or shoulder. They can also experience blurred vision, ringing in the ears and dizziness, just to mention a few. Medical treatment is recommended as soon as possible after a car accident because without the correct treatment, it can lead to the development of arthritis.

 

Back injuries

After a car accident, victims usually complain about lower back injuries that can lead to more serious cases of fractured vertebrae, for example. This kind of injury can be really painful and may appear right after the accident or even after a few days and the symptoms include arm and leg pain, muscle weakness, numbness or tingling. It is important to seek medical help right after the car accident in order to minimize nerve damage. In some cases, back injuries can be treated with pain medications that can be bought without prescription but most severe cases need stronger pain medication and even physiotherapy. If the non-surgical treatment is not enough to eliminate the pain, the last option may be a lumbar decompression surgery.

 

Spinal Cord Injuries

Car accident victims can suffer from spinal cord injuries and that can be very serious leading to paralysis and loss of feeling or reflexes. Cases of paralysis from a spinal cord can be reduced or reversed with proper medical treatment as long as it is done early.

 

Chest Injuries

Chest injuries are more likely to happen to the driver. In the car accident, the driver’s position makes it easier for him or her to suffer a chest injury like broken ribs and collapsed lungs for hitting the steering wheel or dashboard. In come cases, the victim can even suffer internal bleeding, cardiac arrest and damage to internal organs and abdomen. Even though the victim can experience severe bruising from wearing a seat belt during the car accident, it is just a small price to pay. If worn correctly, it can reduce the chance of death by 47% and more serious injuries by 52% and it is important to remember that wearing a seat belt is necessary at all times.

 

Shoulder Injuries

Because the shoulder can move in many directions, it makes it less stable than other joints being easier to suffer injuries in a car accident. Shoulder injuries’ symptoms include visible shoulder deformity, limited mobility of the joint, lots of pain and many others. Remember to never try to put a dislocated shoulder into place by yourself because that can cause even more damage. The right way to deal with this is to immediately proceed to the nearest emergency room and have proper medical treatment.

 

Internal Injuries

Do not think that injuries that can happen from a car accident are only visible from the outside. Internal injuries are dangerous because they can go unnoticed and lead to a more severe injury. Because they are harder to notice, pay attention to symptoms like pale skin, dizziness, overall cold feeling, abdominal pain and fatigue. After the car accident, even if it was a minor one, it is crucial to have proper medical treatment to have your internal organs checked. Otherwise, it can be lethal.

 

Brain, Head and Face Injuries

Car accidents caused by high-speed collisions can cause brain, head and face injuries that can possibly lead to comas and long-term cognitive issues. Even if there is no external sign of bruises on the head, the brain can be internally damaged and if not treated correctly, it can cause serious brain damage. Other conditions, like a dislocated jaw can be fixed back into the position but surgery may be necessary in some cases.

 

Broken Bones

Broken bones (arms, legs, knees, ankles and hips) are also common car accident injuries. They must be treated as soon as the car accident victim could go to the nearest hospital in order to get proper treatment. In some cases, physiotherapy may be required to repair broken bones.

 

Strains, Sprains, Bruising, Scrapes and Cuts

Do not mistake this kind of injury for something not worth treating. Even though it is the most common of car accident injuries, it can still cause lots of pain and discomfort to the victim weeks after the car accident happened. Treatment can include stitches and pain relievers with physiotherapy to restore body function.

 

Psychological Traumas

Car accident victims can also suffer from psychological traumas, especially if there is severe injury or death involved. Emotional distress can cause psychological traumas like anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress disorder and more, interfering with the victim’s life considerably. This kind of case can be treated with proper counseling and medication.

Suing for Slip and Fall: What is Your Suffering Worth?

One typical reaction after being injured by slipping and falling is the urge to sue someone or some company but you have to be sure if your case allows that kind of measure. You can sue if you are injured and negligence (duty, breach, causation, and harm) is shown towards you. That does not mean that every slip and fall injury is caused by negligence but if that did happen and you can prove it, you have the right to sue.Slip-fall-Ontario

If you have suffered a slip and fall accident, first get medical treatment and then speak to a personal injury lawyer. Be ready to show every fact to have an expert review and proper assistance to your case.

Anatomy of a slip and fall

Many Canadians experience slippery walking conditions outdoors through the years, but slips and falls with potentially serious consequences can also occur on indoor surfaces. Slip and fall injuries cases can increase a lot as the population ages and the World Health Organization estimates that 1 in 3 people with 65 years of age or older falls each year.

 

Therefore, to reduce slip and falls, the selectioWork place slip and falln and maintenance of appropriate flooring is an important factor but there are other ones that can contribute to a person’s slipping such as individual walking biomechanics, environment and walking surface and footwear properties.
In fact, the selection of appropriate footwear can prevent slip and fall cases from happening. It is important to choose shoes with high slip resistance and replace them once they are used so much. But the use of proper footwear is not the only factor to prevent slip and fall. Pedestrians can adapt to the surface they are walking on and other types of footwear, so experience is also a factor. This explains why some people tend to slip and fall in some surfaces while other people walking in the same area do not.
These are just a few explanations regarding this subject and there is still a lot of research being done to provide a better understanding regarding the right kind of footwear to avoid slip and fall cases for pedestrians and workers. If you did suffer some kind of injury from a case of slip and fall, make sure to get proper medical assistance as soon as possible and later contact a personal injury lawyer  like Kalsi & Associates to get your case solved correctly.

Car insurance is a topic that has a big impact on Ontario’s population because it can cause major impacts. Every year, nearly 50,000 people suffer from car accident injuries in Ontario and many of them experience significant cases of injuries that can lead to a more problematic scenario. On June 1, 2016, the government has make more cuts to car accident benefits and that means people who have suffered from car accident injuries are going to have fewer benefits.

BRAMPTON CAR ACCIDENT LAWYERS URGE CAUTION AFTER TORONTO DRIVER DROWNS CAR IN POND

Source: CTV
Brampton car accident lawyers across our area take numerous cases this time of year stemming from hazardous winter driving conditions. In this instance, cold and wet weather didn’t so much cause a woman’s car to careen into a pond Wednesday night as make the potential consequences so much more severe.

 

The yet-unidentified woman escaped a crash with only minor injuries after a wreck that saw her vehicle hop a curb near Kennedy Road and Progress Avenue in Scarborough overnight, drive underneath a fence, and roll downhill into a pond, according to police by way of CTV. When officers arrived on the scene around 2 a.m., the visibly shaken woman told them she accidentally pressed her vehicle’s gas pedal in a closeby mall parking lot to set off the wild ride.

 

Though the pond had been covered with ice, the woman escaped and swam to shore before yelling for help. Fortunately, a motorist passing by noticed her and dialed 911 to summon aid. The driver was understandably rattled, but was released from hospital with no significant harm. Police and tow operators, meanwhile, worked together to extract the drowned vehicle from its watery grave Thursday morning.

 

It’s a timely cautionary tale for all GTA motorists this frozen season. Should your vehicle ever end up plunging into icy water, your first moves should be to unlock your nearest door and roll down the windows before the car can sink very far. Next, get out immediately either by opening the door, if possible, or crawling through the window – it takes little more than a minute for an average-sized sedan to fill with water once it goes into the drink. From there, it’s imperative to get out of the water as quickly as you can before hypothermia has a chance to take hold.

 

The car’s descent is no time to sit in the driver’s seat and dial 911. Make it to shore first, then summon help.

Your kid just got a drone. Should you get insurance?

Source By: Theglobeandmail

The next wave of hobby drones will be wrapped in boxes underneath Christmas trees before they fill the skies. If industry sales projections come true, the holiday season will put tens of thousands of relative novices at the controls of small unmanned aerial vehicles in densely populated cities and suburbs. All that amateurish swooping over houses and cars, spooking pets and dodging humans, will invariably lead to cracked windows and more than a few bloody injuries.

First come the toy drones; then the liability claims start flying.

“Almost no one is thinking about insurance coverage when they’re opening the box,” says Jeff Antonelli, a Chicago attorney who specializes in U.S. federal regulations for unmanned aerial systems. The liability protection in homeowners or renters insurance policies will sometimes cover damage or injury from a drone crashing into a neighbour’s house, vehicle or child. Yet this coverage isn’t universal, Mr. Antonelli says, and some policies specifically carry an aviation exclusion that encompasses recreational drones, which the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration classifies as small aircraft.

But the lawsuits probably won’t have to wait for corporate drone disasters. Mr. Hanson and other attorneys predict that invasion of privacy claims against commercial drone operators – not personal-injury torts – will likely spur most legal work.

Ontario Provincial Police Name Traffic Accident Hotspots in Toronto Find Out the Most Dangerous Places to Drive

Source: The Star

Posted On: 07/17/2007

The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) worked to outline hotspots for collisions, injuries and deaths.

One such traffic hotspot is on Highway 401 between Whites Road and Courtice Road. If you are driving on this stretch of the highway, you have a greater chance of being involved in a motor vehicle accident than on any other highway across the province. The likelihood of being involved in a motor vehicle accident collision is even higher if you are driving there between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. or 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.

However, accidents causing a death are higher on Highway 48 between Bloomington Road and Smith Boulevard near Aurora due to drivers trying to pass on the highway.
Surprisingly, OPP found that the likelihood of death was higher in the summer than in the winter, especially during the months of July and August. It is said by Chief Superintendent Bill Grodzinski that the cause is related to traffic volumes on the clear and dry roads and the influence of alcohol. People are going out to the cottage and not using seat belts or are driving too fast.

Over $200 million has been paid by the city of Toronto to settle civil lawsuits since the year 2000 and payouts are becoming richer.

Civil lawsuits relating to road and sidewalk maintenance were about 773 cases where settlements totaled $32,458,390.50. Extreme weather related incidents including icy driveways were about 360 cases, which costed the City $439,345.74.

Shelley Carroll said poor city services were partly to blame for the number of settlements. Shelley Carroll served as city budget chief from 2006 to 2010. As a result she indicated that repairs of the sidewalks that can cause trips have been privatized. Which raised the following questions: are prettier sidewalks wanted? Whether funds should be paid out in the settlement? Should it be properly funded initially?

She stated that the lawsuits and settlements paid out were reasonable. It is important to note that the amount of settlements per year has been decreasing instead of growing. However, the amount paid to injured persons has increased
