South Western Ontario
On Tuesday, separate collisions in the Sudbury, Ont. Area, on Highway 17, claimed two lives. According to the OPP, in the morning West of Sudbury, a tractor-trailer collided with a rock cut.
It happened east of the Walden Township, claiming the life of a 33-year-old woman. She was a passenger in the transport truck. The driver of the vehicle was charged with careless driving.
Four hours later, another collision occurred. It involved an SUV and a transport truck, killing a 65-year-old woman. She was the driver of the sports utility vehicle.
The driver of the transport suffered minor injuries. The police closed the two sites for investigation of the collisions.

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.
Reasonable Doubt: Why Cuts to Insurance Benefits are a Social Justice Issue
Source: Now Toronto
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.
The impact of this measure is even bigger on the most vulnerable or marginalized people from Ontario because the ones with lower income are more likely to have physical jobs and be deprived to work because of possible injuries caused by car accidents.
That is why they are the ones that can benefit the most from having the assistance of a personal injury lawyer. The personal injury law firm can help them get the compensation and the assistance they need when they are injured by a car accident.

Brain injuries after an accident
A serious brain injury can have many different effects on a victim. Often, the impairments are permanent. Unfortunately, it can occur from a car accident, slip and fall, or some other type of incident.
Some brain injuries can be especially complicated due to the fact that they cannot be detected by objective testing (ie. CT, X-ray or MRI).
Often the victim’s are not aware of the injury until people close to the victim start to notice changes in victim’s behaviour. If not treated properly, the symptoms can often worsen.
If the accident that caused the brain injury was due to the negligence of another person in Ontario, there could be a personal injury claim. In cases of brain injury, the compensation could be higher than other cases because of its complexity and the serious effect it has on the victim’s life.
