Ottawa and eastern Ontario continues to experience high rates of accidents caused by impaired driving, either by drugs or alcohol. Despite RIDE programs, increased penalties and the social stigma of impaired driving, innocent people continue to be injured and killed as a result of impaired driving.

Whether injured as a passenger, pedestrian or an occupant of another vehicle, victims of impaired driving can be left with serious, life-changing injuries.

Examples of impaired driving accident claims that our Ottawa lawyers have brought to resolution:

Pedestrian hit by a car driven by an impaired driver
Passenger in a vehicle driven by an impaired driver
Occupant of another vehicle struck by an impaired driver
Cyclist struck by an impaired driver
