Distracted Driving Accidents
It is very hard to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car distractions (young children, music, cellular devices, your pets, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the scenery, traffic, other vehicles, billboards, animals, etc.), diversions occur.Regrettably, being distracted while driving a motor 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 draw your eyes away from the road is dangerous. In the Claremont, CA area there are plenty of distractions, and if one of them leads to you getting in any sort of accident, you know who to call: Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890.
Roll Over Accidents
Rollovers usually occur as a consequence of the higher center of gravity in certain vehicles, specifically 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 suddenly shifts. This shift may cause the tires to be deprived of physical contact with the ground and the vehicle to flip. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be extraordinarily harmful. A combined 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants were killed in rollover crashes in 2016. 28% of the accidents did not include any other impact. (IIHS, 2018)As the acceptance of sports utility vehicles increases, so does the proportion of SUV-related traffic accidents. 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 occupant deaths in non-SUV cars occurred in rollovers. The IIHS 2018 study says that while car occupant deaths have declined 46% since 1975, SUV occupant deaths have risen ten-fold.The physical design and style of SUVs are such that they have a higher center of gravity than normal passenger cars and therefore are more susceptible to rollovers. Since the roof structure of most vehicles is not designed to support the body weight of the car, the damage sustained in a rollover can crush the roof and cause massive and catastrophic injuries to the passengers inside the vehicle.Rollover 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 collisions: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes typically occur when two (or more) vehicles are moving in the same direction and the driver's side of one of the vehicles comes in contact with the passenger side of the other vehicle. Sideswipes can cause extensive damage to both vehicles, including structural issues and complications that cannot immediately be spotted but could render the car or truck unsafe. Other times the dent or damage is so severe that the car is not drivable and could be a total loss. Either way, our attorneys will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance carriers and any liability obstacles that may arise.The other kind of side impact collision is the "T-bone" and can have much more dangerous results. T-bone collisions occur when the front of one vehicle strikes the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone accidents are almost always more serious than sideswipes because the momentum in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" while a T-bone transfers all of the energy and force from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The effect of a T-bone collision often brings about drastic trauma to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in somebody's loss of life or permanent disability. If you or someone close have been the victim of any type of car accident, we want to talk to you. Our legal specialists will help you discover if there are legal and economic 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 Crashes
Thankfully, frontal collisions make up only a tiny percentage of traffic collisions. Head-on accidents happen far more frequently in agricultural locations than urban areas, making up 13% of all rural fatal accidents, while only comprising 7 percent of deadly accidents in urban areas. (NHTSA)Due to the severity of most head-on collisions, an ambulance and/or EMTs are almost always dispatched to the location of the crash, which results in considerable medical bills in conjunction with the liability, property damage, and damage to the automobiles involved. Essentially, these types of accidents can change the course of one's life physically, emotionally, and fiscally. You need an advocate; someone who knows legal process and who will fight for you and your family. If you are part of a head-on collision - or any auto accident for that matter - you will want to call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890 for a complimentary consultation. Our staff of lawyers has collected millions of dollars in settlements for our valued clientele in the Claremont, CA vicinity, allow us to do the same for you, your loved ones, family, or friends.
Interstate Traffic Accidents
High speed collisions are terrifying. Owing to the laws of physics, the quicker you (or the opposing car) is moving, the greater the opportunity for the loss of vehicle control, damages, and/or personal injury when your vehicles collide. Even a slight "tap" at high speed can lead to a devastating consequence if it causes you to lose control of your vehicle. The extent of accidents on the interstate - and their significantly greater associated speeds - lead to more serious collisions and therefore greater damage and compensation claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved with a freeway (or any) accident in the Claremont, 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 appointment is complimentary and carries no obligation, and you won't pay us anything unless we win your case and you receive a settlement.Death and potentially terminal trauma are often the direct result of interstate accidents. Once again, due to the high speeds and physical forces involved, the harm to vehicles and people is frequently more significant than a "fender bender" in a residential district. The possible extent of highway accidents increases when you take into account all of the large commercial transport trucks, commercial vehicles, semitrailers, and tractor-trailers that seem to command the highways. Due to their bulk and lack of maneuverability, heavier vehicles cannot stop as quickly or make tight turns without the risk of rollover. This issue is compounded at the more significant speeds of interstate traffic.Motorcycles are also an issue because they possess a tendency to "open up" their throttles when they get on the freeway, and they can seemingly appear from nowhere.Regardless of whether it involves another passenger vehicle, a motorcycle, or a truck, interstate accidents are usually catastrophic, and you need support if you are to recuperate from the physical, financial, emotional, and psychological effects of your involvement. Contact us today at (877) 278-6890.
Accidents Due to Weather Conditions
According to a 2019 study conducted by the Federal Highway Administration, about 21% of motor vehicle crashes are weather-related.
- 70% of weather-related accidents occur on wet pavement
- 46% during rainfall
- 18% during snow or sleet
- 16% on snowy or slushy pavement
- 13% on icy pavement
- 3% in fog
The Weather Channel reported in 2018 that weather related automobile accidents kill more people annually than large-scale weather disasters.

It stands to reason that the worse the weather, 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. Doubtless a contributing component is that it takes ten times longer to stop on snow and ice than it does 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.
