Rollovers commonly occur due to the higher center of gravity in specific 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 may 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 harmful. A total of 7,488 passenger vehicle drivers and occupants were killed in rollover crashes in 2016. 28% of these didn't involve any other collision. (IIHS, 2018)As the acceptance of SUVs increases, so does the percentage 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 passenger 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 weight of the vehicle, the impact sustained in a rollover can crush the roof and cause massive and catastrophic injuries to the passengers in the vehicle.Rollover 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 kinds of side impact crashes: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes typically occur when two (or more) cars or trucks 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 considerable damage to both vehicles, including structural problems and complications that cannot instantly be spotted but could render the vehicle 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 providers and any liability complications that may arise.The other type of side impact collision is the "T-bone" and can have much more life threatening results. T-bone collisions happen when the front of one vehicle strikes the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone accidents are almost always much worse than sideswipes because the energy 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 effect of a T-bone accident often can cause extreme trauma to the passengers of both vehicles, and can often result in somebody's loss of life or permanent impairment. If you or someone you love have been the victim of any type of car accident, we want to talk to you. Our legal experts will help you determine if there are legal and monetary 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 commitment consultation.
Thankfully, head-on crashes make up only a small percentage of vehicle accidents. Head-on collisions happen most frequently in agricultural areas than urban areas, making up 13% of all non-urban fatal crashes, while only comprising 7 percent of lethal collisions in urban areas. (NHTSA)Due to the extent of virtually all head-on collisions, an ambulance and/or EMTs are nearly always dispatched to the location of the crash, leading to significant medical related fees as well as the legal, property damage, and damage to the cars or trucks involved. Needless to say, these types of accidents can transform the focus of one's daily lifestyle physically, psychologically, and economically. You need a proponent; someone who understands legal processes and who will fight for you and your family.

Highway Car Accidents
High speed collisions are frightening. Due to the laws of physics, the more quickly you (or the opposing car) is moving, the more substantial the opportunity for the loss of vehicle control, damages, and/or physical trauma when your vehicles collide. Even a minor "tap" at high speed can give rise to a catastrophic result if it causes you to lose control of your car or truck. The severity of auto accidents on the freeway - and their higher than average associated speeds - lead to more substantial accidents and consequently higher damage and insurance claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are associated with a highway (or any) accident in the Culver City, 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 complimentary 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 direct result of interstate accidents. Once again, due to the above average speeds and physical forces involved, the harm to vehicles and people is almost always greater than a "fender bender" on a residential street. The possible extent of highway accidents multiplies when you take into account all of the large trucks, commercial vehicles, semis, and tractor-trailers that seem to dominate the highways. Due to their size and lack of maneuverability, bigger trucks can't stop as fast or make tight turns without the risk of rollover. This issue is compounded at the more significant rates of speed of freeway traffic.Motorcycles are also problematic because they have a tendency to "open up" their throttles when they get on the freeway, and they can seemingly appear from nowhere.No matter whether it involves a truck, another passenger vehicle, or a motorcycle, highway crashes are frequently catastrophic, and you need help and support if you are to recover from the physical, emotional, financial, and psychological effects of your involvement.

- 18% during snow or sleet

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.
Absolutely. In fact, you shouldn’t communicate with a claims adjuster until after you have spoken to a legal professional. Claims adjusters are employed by the insurance carrier, they do not work for you.
