“Not By Accident”

Lerners Personal Injury Works to Reduce Car Accident Fatalities

Over the past decade, more than 3,500 men women and children have been the victims of fatal car accidents across Ontario. As Personal Injury Lawyers, we join health care providers, trauma centers, and other medical practitioners as the individuals on the front lines, bearing witness to these tragic accidents year after year. And while we will continue to support the families and victims of car accidents, we joined the London Health Sciences Centre for their annual Southwest Injury Prevention Conference to support and lend our expertise to the pursuit of an Ontario with zero road fatalities.

“We believe in the power and strength of community. It’s not enough to just be there to help support and guide families and victims through these tragic moments in their lives, we have to be there to help prevent them and that’s why we joined the London health Sciences Centre Trauma Program for this year’s conference.” – Nigel Gilby, Lerners Personal Injury Practice Group Leader.

Joined by health professionals, health organizations, experts, and advocacy groups from across Ontario, Lerners was proud to play a small role in helping support this year’s “Not by Accident – Zero Fatalities Ahead” program. During the one-day educational conference, policy makers and experts explored road safety strategies at the municipal, provincial and national levels. The conference also heard presentations that focused on emerging technology, including autonomous vehicles and Toyota’s innovative “Brain on Board” program.

Lerners will continue to help support health care providers and injury prevention organizations in our continued effort to make Ontario a safer environment for everyone.
