Distracted Driving Accidents
It is extremely tough 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, wildlife, etc.), diversions occur.Unfortunately, being distracted while driving a vehicle is one of the most dangerous 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 Bandini, CA area there are plenty of distractions, and if one of them leads to you getting in a car accident, you know who to call: Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890.
Rollovers generally occur as a result of the higher center of gravity in select vehicles, primarily SUVs (Sport Utility Vehicles) and large trucks. Rollovers can occur when a driver turns the vehicle too sharply or quickly and the vehicle's center of gravity shifts suddenly. This shift often causes the tires to suffer a loss of physical contact with the road and the vehicle to flip over. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be extraordinarily harmful. A total of 7,488 passenger vehicle drivers and occupants were killed in rollover accidents in 2016. 28% of the accidents did not include any other collision. (IIHS, 2018)As the level of popularity of SUVs increases, so does the percentage of SUV-related traffic accidents. Unfortunately, the fatality rates involving SUVs is much higher than that 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 design of SUVs are such that they have a higher center of gravity than traditional passenger cars and therefore are more vulnerable to rollovers. Since the roofing system of most vehicles is not designed to support the body 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 commonplace 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 kinds of side impact accidents: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes typically occur when 2 (or more) automobiles 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 significant damage to both vehicles, including structural problems and complications that cannot immediately be spotted but could render the vehicle quite unsafe. Other times the damage is so severe that the car is not drivable and could be a complete loss. In either event, our attorneys will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance carriers and any legal difficulties that may arise.The other kind of side impact accident is the "T-bone" and can have much more lethal results. T-bone collisions come about when the front of one vehicle hits the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone car accidents are almost always more dangerous than sideswipes because the energy in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" while a T-bone transfers all of the power and momentum from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The impact of a T-bone accident often results in significant trauma to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in somebody's loss of life or permanent impairment.

Thankfully, frontal accidents make up only a tiny percentage of vehicle crashes. Head-on accidents take place far more frequently in agricultural locations than metropolitan areas, accounting for 13 percent of all rural deadly crashes, while only comprising 7% of deadly crashes in metropolitan areas. (NHTSA)Due to the severity of virtually all head-on crashes, an ambulance and/or EMTs are nearly always dispatched to the scene of the vehicle accident, generating potentially substantial medical-related bills in conjunction with the legal, property damage, and damage to the vehicles involved. Needless to say, these types of traffic accidents can change the course of one's way of life physically, psychologically, and fiscally. You need an advocate; someone who understands legal procedure and who will battle for you. If you are involved in a head-on collision - or any accident for that matter - you need to call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890 for a no obligation consultation.

Highway Auto Accidents
High-speed crashes are frightening. Because of the laws of physics, the more rapidly you (or the opposing vehicle) is going, the more significant the chance for loss of vehicular control, damages, and/or bodily trauma when your vehicles collide. Even a little "tap" at high speeds can contribute to a catastrophic result if it triggers you to lose control of your car or truck. The extent of auto accidents on the freeway - and their higher than average accompanying speeds - lead to more substantial crashes and consequently higher damage and insurance claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are associated with a highway (or any) accident in the Bandini, 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 discussion is completely free and carries no obligation, and you won't pay us anything unless we win your case and you receive a settlement.Fatalities and life-threatening injuries are often the consequence of freeway accidents. Once again, due to the higher speeds and actual physical forces involved, the damage to people and vehicles is frequently more significant than a "fender bender" in a residential community. The possible extent of freeway accidents multiplies when you take into account all of the large trucks, commercial vehicles, semis, and tractor-trailers that seem to take over the freeways. Due to their mass and lack of maneuverability, bigger trucks can't stop as rapidly or make tight turns without risking rollover. This issue is compounded at the more significant rates of speed of highway traffic.Motorcycles are also problematic because they tend to "open up" their throttles when they get on the interstate, and they can seemingly appear from thin air.Irrespective of whether it involves a truck, another passenger vehicle, or a motorcycle, highway accidents are frequently disastrous, and you need assistance if you are to recuperate from the physical, psychological, financial, and emotional consequences of your involvement.
