Injuries While Riding
Texting while Driving Accidents
Distracted Driving Accidents
It is very hard to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car distractions (your children, music, cellular devices, animals, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the view, automobile traffic, other vehicles, billboards, animals, etc.), distractions occur.Regrettably, being distracted while driving a motor vehicle is one of the most treacherous things you can do. The most frequent (62%) cause of distracted driving crashes is being lost in thought or letting your mind wander. (TeenSafe, 2018)Anything that can take your attention away from the road is dangerous. In the Baldwin Park, CA area there are plenty of distractions, and if one of them leads to you getting in a major accident, you know who to call: Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890.
Roll Over Crashes
Rollovers typically occur as a result of the higher center of gravity in particular vehicles, especially SUVs (Sport Utility Vehicles) and large trucks. Rollovers can occur when a driver turns the vehicle too quickly or sharply and the vehicle's center of gravity shifts suddenly. This shift can cause the tires to suffer a loss of physical contact with the road and the vehicle to flip. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be extraordinarily hazardous. A total of 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants perished in rollover accidents in 2016. 28% of the accidents didn't involve any other collision. (IIHS, 2018)As the acceptance of SUVs increases, so does the proportion of SUV-related traffic collisions. Unfortunately, the death rates involving SUVs is much higher than those of other vehicles. According to a 2019 IIHS study, 42% of SUV passenger deaths occurred in rollovers while only 20% of passenger deaths in non-SUV cars occurred in rollovers. The IIHS 2018 study says that while car occupant deaths have decreased 46% since 1975, SUV occupant deaths have risen ten-fold.The physical construction of SUVs are such that they have a higher center of gravity than regular passenger cars and therefore are more vulnerable to rollovers. Since the roofing system of most vehicles is not designed to support the weight of the vehicle, the damage sustained in a rollover can crush the roof and cause massive and catastrophic injuries to the passengers in the vehicle.Roll over accidents are also common with large trucks and trucks with trailers (semis). The same 2019 IIHS study notes that in 2018 45% of large truck occupant deaths occurred in rollovers
Side Impact Collisions
There are two types of side impact crashes: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes commonly occur when two (or more) vehicles are moving in the same direction and the driver's side of one of the vehicles collides with the passenger side of the other vehicle. Sideswipes can cause substantial damage to both vehicles, including structural problems and complications that cannot instantly be seen but could make the car or truck unsafe. Other times the damage is so significant that the car or truck is not operational and could be a complete loss. Either way, our law firm will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance carriers and any liability issues that may arise.The other form of side impact collision is the "T-bone" and can have much more lethal results. T-bone collisions happen when the front of one vehicle strikes the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone auto accidents are almost always worse than sideswipes because the momentum in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" whereas a T-bone transmits all of the power and force from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The impact of a T-bone collision often can cause considerable trauma to the passengers of both vehicles, and can often result in somebody's death or permanent disability. If you or someone you love have been the victim of any type of vehicle accident, we want to talk to you. Our legal professionals will help you discover if there are legal and financial remedies available to you for your pain and suffering. Call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890 for a free, no obligation consultation.
Head On Collisions
Thankfully, frontal accidents make up only a small percentage of driving accidents. Head-on collisions happen most often in remote locations than urban areas, accounting for 13 percent of all non-urban fatal accidents, while only comprising 7 percent of fatal collisions in metropolitan areas. (NHTSA)Due to the severity of most head-on collisions, EMTs and/or an ambulance is nearly always dispatched to the location of the accident, leading to potentially considerable healthcare charges along with the liability, property damage, and damage to the cars involved. Needless to say, these types of car accidents can change the focus of one's life physically, emotionally, and economically. You need an ally; someone who knows legal processes and who will fight for you and your family.

Freeway Traffic Accidents
High speed collisions are horrifying. Owing to the laws of physics, the more quickly you (or the opposing car) is traveling, the more significant the chance for the loss of vehicle control, damage, and/or bodily injury when your vehicles collide. Even a tiny "bump" at high speeds can give rise to a catastrophic result if it makes you lose control of your car or truck. The seriousness of collisions on the freeway - and their higher associated speeds - lead to more major crashes and therefore greater damage and compensation claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are associated with an interstate (or any) accident in the Baldwin Park, CA area, you should call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC. We can be reached by calling (877) 278-6890 or by going to our "Contact" page. Your initial consultation is free and carries no obligation, and you won't pay us anything unless we win your case and you receive a settlement.Death and life-threatening injuries are often the consequence of freeway accidents. Once again, due to the very high speeds and actual physical forces involved, the harm to vehicles and people is frequently greater than a "fender bender" in a residential location. The potential severity of interstate accidents increases when you take into account all of the large commercial transport trucks, commercial vehicles, semitrailers, and tractor-trailers that seem to dominate the highways. Due to their bulk and lack of maneuverability, larger vehicles can't stop as quickly or make tight turns without the risk of rollover. This condition is compounded at the greater rates of speed of freeway traffic.Motorcycles are also a problem because they have the tendency to "open up" their throttles when they get on the highway, and they can seemingly appear from nowhere.No matter whether it involves another passenger vehicle, a motorcycle, or a truck, freeway collisions are usually catastrophic, and you need help and support if you are to recuperate from the physical, emotional, psychological, and financial consequences of your involvement.
