Boating Accidents

Despite much more stringent licensing requirements in recent years, recreational vehicles such as boats are still involved in many boating accidents every year that result in catastrophic injuries and deaths.

Police urge safety on Ontario waterways amid an increase in boating deaths

Provincial police say three times as many people have died in boating accidents on Ontario waterways this year compared to the same time in 2015.

The OPP says eight people have died in six separate incidents so far in 2016.

The primary source of compensation in many boat accidents are accident benefits from a homeowner’s insurance policy. However, you may also have a claim against the driver who was responsible for the accident. This is known as a tort claim.

Structure Collapse Accidents

Structure Collapse Accidents in the News: building, scaffolding, roof, stage, balcony railing, falling glass, …

When structures are not built to code or properly maintained, they can collapse resulting in serious injuries and even death.

A building collapse, recently, in midtown Toronto has sent six people and one infant to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. The façade of the building toppled onto Eglinton Avenue West during demolition work related to the Crosstown light-rail transit (LRT) project.

Here are some examples of structural collapse accidents to be found in news reports:

…”On June 23, 2012, part of the upper parking structure of the Algo Centre Mall in Elliot Lake Ontario collapsed causing, as alleged in the Plaintiffs’ claim, personal injury and property damage.”

…”Construction project manager Vadim Kazenelson has been sentenced to 3½ years in prison for his role in a scaffolding collapse at a Toronto apartment building that left four workers dead on Christmas Eve 2009.”

… “The collapse at Downsview Park crushed one of Radiohead’s technicians to death and injured three others with the band. This isn’t the first time an outdoor stage at a Canadian concert has collapsed, sometimes with fatal consequences. Several people were hurt last July when the stage at Ottawa’s Bluesfest collapsed as Cheap Trick playing. In 2009, the main stage collapsed at Alberta’s Big Valley Jamboree, near Camrose, killing one woman and injured several others.”
