OTTAWA PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER- We are very pleased that Ottawa children aged 10 and under will be required to wear helmets during public skating sessions held in City of Ottawa facilities starting January 1, 2012. In a press release accompanying the law’s announcement, the City estimated that 5,700 Ottawa children receive medical treatment in emergency rooms, and 400 children are hospitalized, every year because of sports-related head injuries.
We look forward to hearing that traumatic brain injuries are down on account of the new rule. Now let’s see the rule broadened to require helmets while toboganning!
If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury and are looking for information about claims for compensation following an accident, call 613-233-4529.
