Distracted Driving Accidents
It is quite difficult to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car distractions (kids, music, cellular phones, pets, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the scenery, traffic, other vehicles, billboards, wildlife, etc.), distractions occur.Unfortunately, being distracted while driving is one of the most hazardous 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 eyes away from the road is dangerous.

Roll Over Incidents
Rollovers normally occur as a consequence of the higher center of gravity in select vehicles, especially SUVs (Sport Utility Vehicles) and large trucks. Rollovers can occur when a driver turns the vehicle too quickly and the vehicle's center of gravity suddenly shifts. This shift can cause the tires to be deprived of contact with the ground and the vehicle to flip. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be exceptionally dangerous. A combined 7,488 passenger vehicle drivers and occupants died in rollover accidents in 2016. 28% of the accidents didn't involve any other collision. (IIHS, 2018)As the acceptance of sports utility vehicles increases, so does the proportion 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 dropped 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 ordinary 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 inside the vehicle.Roll-over accidents are also prevalent 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 varieties of side impact crashes: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes commonly 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 extensive damage to both vehicles, including structural concerns and complications that cannot instantly be spotted but could render the vehicle quite unsafe. Other times the damage is so severe that the car or truck is not drivable and could be a total loss. In either event, our attorneys will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance carriers and any liability difficulties that may arise.The other kind of side impact collision is the "T-bone" and can have much more life-threatening results. T-bone collisions come about when the front of one vehicle hits the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone collisions are almost always worse than sideswipes because the energy in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" whereas a T-bone transfers all of the power and force from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The power of a T-bone collision often translates to drastic trauma to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in someone's death or permanent disability.

Our legal experts will help you ascertain 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.
Thankfully, head-on collisions make up only a slight percentage of vehicle crashes. Head-on collisions occur far more often in outlying areas than metropolitan areas, making up 13% of all non-urban fatal accidents, while only comprising 7% of deadly collisions in metropolitan areas. (NHTSA)Due to the intensity of the majority of head-on accidents, an ambulance and/or EMTs are almost always dispatched to the scene of the vehicle accident, leading to potentially considerable medical related fees in addition to the legal, property damage, and damage to the motor vehicles involved. Not surprisingly, these types of traffic accidents can transform the focus of one's everyday life physically, psychologically, and fiscally. You need an ally; someone who understands legal processes and who will fight for you and your loved ones. If you are involved with a head-on collision - or any car accident for that matter - you need to call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890 for a no-cost consultation.

High-speed accidents are horrifying. Because of the laws of physics, the more quickly you (or the opposing vehicle) is going, the greater the possibility for the loss of vehicular control, damage, and/or personal trauma when your vehicles collide. Even a tiny "tap" at high speeds can give rise to a disastrous outcome if it makes you lose control of your car or truck. The severity of crashes on the highway - and their higher than average accompanying speeds - lead to more severe accidents and therefore higher damage and insurance claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are associated with an interstate (or any) accident in the Buena 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 outcome of freeway accidents. Once again, due to the higher than average speeds and natural forces involved, the damage to vehicles and people is almost always greater than a "fender bender" in a residential district. The potential intensity of freeway accidents multiplies when you take into account all of the large commercial transport trucks, commercial vehicles, 18 wheelers, and tractor-trailers that seem to take over the highways. Due to their weight and lack of maneuverability, larger trucks can't stop as readily or make tight turns without risking rollover. This problem is compounded at the more substantial rates of freeway traffic.Motorcycles are also problematic because they have the tendency to "open up" their throttles when they get on the interstate, and they can seemingly appear from nowhere.Irrespective of whether it involves another passenger vehicle, a motorcycle, or a truck, interstate crashes are frequently catastrophic, and you need help if you are to recuperate from the physical, emotional, psychological, and financial consequences of your involvement.

Accidents Due to Weather Conditions
According to a 2019 study performed by the Federal Highway Administration, about 21% of motor vehicle accidents are weather-related.

- 18% during snow or sleet
- 16% on snowy or slushy pavement
- 13% on icy pavement
- 3% in fog

It stands to reason that the worse the weather is, the more likely there will be effects on the road. According to Carsurance.net there are about 156,000 crashes annually due to icy roads. Certainly a contributing component is that it requires 10 times longer to stop on snow and ice than it will on dry pavement (GEICO Insurance, 2018).

Unquestionably. For that matter, you should never speak with a claims adjuster until after you have already spoken to legal counsel. Claims adjusters are working for the insurance provider, they don't represent you. It is their purpose to save their organization's money, and they can’t do that if they voluntarily present you with the maximum settlement, so they will certainly offer you less. Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC will get you more.

They may be accountable for all, a portion, or none of your medical charges. Since California is a Comparative fault state, you are allowed to receive reasonable and customary medical expenses, but you are only qualified to receive the proportion that is not your fault. So, if the collision is determined to be 100% the fault of a different person, you ought to recover 100 % of the damages. If, however, you are determined to be at fault in any way, your settlement will be diminished by the proportionate percentage.For example, if you were hit by an automobile (they were at fault) but you weren’t wearing a seatbelt (as required under California Vehicle Code Section 27363), and injuries you received were 30% as a result of your seat belt violation, your payment may be reduced by 30%.
