Servicing Niagara and all of Ontario
Every 10 minutes, someone visits a Niagara area emergency room with an injury. Most of these injuries are relatively minor, but 7% are serious enough to require admission to the hospital. Unfortunately, the rate of some types of these injuries are on the rise.
Statistics suggest that falls are the most common type of unintentional injury in the Niagara region that lead to emergency room visits, hospitalization and death. While the rate of fall-related injuries is fairly consistent, in recent years there has been a notable increase in the number of concussions and head trauma related to falls and recreational activities like hockey.
The Niagara area also has a higher than average rate of hospital visits and admissions relating to injuries from motor vehicle accidents – and this rate is on the rise as well. Whether it’s a collision at a notoriously dangerous intersection such as Four Mile Creek Road and Line 3 Road in Niagara-on-the-Lake or a pile up on the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) highway, these accidents can cause significant injuries to drivers, passengers or others on the road.
From broken bones and disfiguring scars, to traumatic brain injuries, to nerve and spinal cord damage, serious personal injuries can bring pain, suffering and loss to a victim and their loved ones. Coming to terms with a debilitating injury is challenging. The financial resources you may require for your recovery or to compensate for your losses can be immense.
