Distracted Driving Accidents
It is very difficult to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car distractions (kids, music, cellular phones, dogs and cats, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the scenery, vehicle traffic, other vehicles, billboards, wildlife, etc.), distractions occur.Regrettably, being distracted while driving 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 attention away from the road is dangerous.

Rollovers usually occur because of the higher center of gravity in particular 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 often causes the tires to lose contact with the ground and the vehicle to flip over. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be exceedingly harmful. A combined 7,488 passenger vehicle drivers and occupants perished in rollover crashes in 2016. 28% of these didn't involve any other collision. (IIHS, 2018)As the popularity of sports utility vehicles increases, so does the percentage of SUV-related traffic collisions. 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 of SUVs are such that they have a higher center of gravity than conventional passenger cars and therefore are more prone to rollovers. Since the roof 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 inside the vehicle.Roll-over 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 types of side impact crashes: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes usually occur when two (or more) vehicles are traveling 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 observed but could make the car or truck quite unsafe. Other times the dent or damage is so significant that the car or truck is not operational and could be a total loss. In either event, our law firm will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance underwriters and any legal concerns that may arise.The other form 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 hits the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone auto accidents are almost always more dangerous than sideswipes because the energy in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" whereas a T-bone transmits all of the power and momentum from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The power of a T-bone collision often can cause severe injuries to the passengers of both vehicles, and can often result in someone's loss of life or permanent disability. If you or someone close have been the victim of any type of vehicle accident, we want to talk to you. Our legal specialists will help you determine 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.
Thankfully, frontal crashes make up only a slight percentage of vehicle collisions. Head-on crashes take place far more often in non-urban locations than urban areas, accounting for 13 percent of all rural lethal crashes, while only comprising 7% of deadly crashes in metropolitan areas. (NHTSA)Due to the extent of virtually all head-on collisions, an ambulance and/or EMTs are nearly always dispatched to the scene of the automobile accident, which results in significant medical-related expenditures in addition to the legal, property damage, and damage to the vehicles involved. Not surprisingly, these types of car accidents can alter the focus of one's life physically, emotionally, and economically. You need a supporter; someone who understands legal techniques and who will fight for you and your loved ones. If you are involved in a head-on collision - or any auto accident for that matter - you need to call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890 for a no-cost consultation.

Highway Car Accidents
High-speed accidents are horrifying. As a result of the laws of physics, the more quickly you (or the opposing vehicle) is going, the more substantial the chance for the loss of vehicle control, damages, and/or bodily injury when your vehicles collide. Even a minor "bump" at high speeds can contribute to a disastrous outcome if it triggers you to lose control of your car or truck. The degree of accidents on the interstate - and their significantly greater accompanying speeds - lead to more serious crashes and therefore more significant damage and insurance claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved in a highway (or any) accident in the Gardena, 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 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 trauma are often the direct result of highway accidents. Once again, due to the higher than average speeds and physical forces involved, the harm to people and vehicles is typically more significant than a "fender bender" on a residential street. The possible intensity of highway accidents multiplies when you take into account all of the large trucks, commercial vehicles, semitrailers, and tractor-trailers that seem to command the highways. Due to their body mass and lack of maneuverability, bigger trucks cannot stop as readily or make tight turns without risking rollover. This condition is compounded at the more significant rates of speed of interstate traffic.Motorcycles are also an issue because they frequently "open up" their throttles when they get on the interstate, and they can seemingly appear from thin air.No matter whether it involves a motorcycle, a truck, or another passenger vehicle, freeway catastrophes are oftentimes devastating, and you need help if you are to recover from the physical, psychological, emotional, and financial effects of your involvement. Contact us today at (877) 278-6890.
Accidents Due to Weather Conditions
According to a 2019 report done by the Federal Highway Administration, about 21% of automotive vehicle crashes are weather related.

- 46% during rainfall
- 18% during snow or sleet
- 16% on snowy or slushy pavement
- 13% on icy pavement

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.
