Distracted Driving Accidents
It is quite challenging to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car distractions (your children, music, cellular phones, animals, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the view, traffic, other vehicles, billboards, wildlife animals, etc.), diversions 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 draw your focus away from the road is dangerous. In the East Irvine, CA area there are plenty of distractions, and if one of them leads to you getting in an accident, you know who to call: Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890.
Roll Over Incidents
Rollovers usually 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 quickly and the vehicle's center of gravity suddenly shifts. This shift often causes the tires to lose physical contact with the ground and the vehicle to flip over. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be exceptionally dangerous. A combined 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants died in rollover crashes in 2016. 28% of these didn't 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 dropped 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 vulnerable to rollovers. Since the roof 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 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 types of side impact collisions: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes usually occur when 2 (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 extensive damage to both vehicles, including structural concerns and complications that cannot immediately be seen but could render the vehicle dangerous. Other times the damage is so significant that the car or truck is not operational and could be a total loss. Either way, our law firm will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance companies and any liability challenges that may arise.The other form of side impact accident is the "T-bone" and can have much more fatal results. T-bone collisions come about when the front of one vehicle strikes the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone traffic accidents are almost always much worse than sideswipes because the energy in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" while a T-bone transfers all of the power and force from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The impact of a T-bone accident often brings about drastic trauma to the passengers of both vehicles, and can often result in someone's death or permanent disability.

Thankfully, head-on accidents make up only a tiny percentage of vehicle crashes. Head-on accidents take place far more often in agricultural locations than metropolitan areas, accounting for 13 percent of all non-urban lethal crashes, while only comprising 7 percent of lethal crashes in metropolitan areas. (NHTSA)Due to the extent of almost all head-on crashes, EMTs and/or an ambulance is almost always dispatched to the location of the automobile accident, which results in significant medical related expenditures in combination with the legal, property damage, and damage to the cars or trucks involved. Essentially, these types of collisions can change the focus of one's everyday living physically, emotionally, and financially. You need a proponent; someone who understands legal techniques and who will fight for you.

Freeway Vehicle Accidents
High-speed accidents are horrifying. Owing to the laws of physics, the faster you (or the opposing car) is moving, the more significant the possibility for loss of vehicular control, damage, and/or personal injury when your vehicles collide. Even a slight "tap" at high speeds can give rise to a devastating result if it triggers you to lose control of your car or truck. The degree of auto accidents on the highway - and their higher associated speeds - lead to more severe accidents and therefore more substantial damage and compensation claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved in a highway (or any) accident in the East Irvine, 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 complimentary and carries no obligation, and you won't pay us anything unless we win your case and you receive a settlement.Loss of life and potentially fatal injuries are often the direct result of freeway accidents. Once again, due to the higher speeds and natural forces involved, the damage to vehicles and people is typically more significant than a "fender bender" in a residential community. The possible extent 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 take over the freeways. Due to their bulk and lack of maneuverability, larger trucks can't stop as readily or make tight turns without the risk of rollover. This issue 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 freeway, and they can seemingly appear from nowhere.Regardless of whether it involves another passenger vehicle, a motorcycle, or a truck, interstate traffic accidents are oftentimes catastrophic, and you need assistance if you are to recover from the physical, financial, emotional, and psychological effects of your involvement.
