Distracted Driving Accidents
It is extremely difficult to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car distractions (your children, music, cellular devices, animals, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the view, vehicle 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.

Rollovers typically occur as a result of the higher center of gravity in select vehicles, particularly 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 be deprived of physical contact with the road and the vehicle to flip over. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be incredibly harmful. A combined 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants died in rollover crashes in 2016. 28% of these didn't include any other collision. (IIHS, 2018)As the level of popularity 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 occupant 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 and style of SUVs are such that they have a higher center of gravity than traditional passenger cars and therefore are more vulnerable to rollovers. Since the roof of most vehicles is not designed to support the weight of the car, the impact sustained in a rollover can crush the roof and cause massive and catastrophic injuries to the passengers inside 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 varieties of side impact accidents: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes usually occur when 2 (or more) automobiles 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 viewed but could make the vehicle unsafe. Other times the dent or damage is so extensive that the car is not drivable and could be a total loss. Either way, our legal team will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance providers and any legal obstacles 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 collisions are almost always much worse than sideswipes because the momentum in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" whereas a T-bone transmits all of the energy and momentum from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The power of a T-bone collision often can cause substantial 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 vehicle accident, we want to talk to you. Our legal specialists will help you figure out if there are legal and economic solutions 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 Accidents
Thankfully, head on accidents make up only a slight percentage of traffic collisions. Head-on crashes happen most frequently in remote areas than metropolitan areas, making up 13% of all rural fatal crashes, while only comprising 7 percent of fatal crashes in urban areas. (NHTSA)Due to the extent of a large number of head-on accidents, an ambulance and/or EMTs are almost always dispatched to the location of the crash, which results in considerable medical-related fees along with the liability, property damage, and damage to the motor vehicles involved. Needless to say, these types of catastrophes can change the course of one's way of life physically, psychologically, and fiscally. You need an advocate; someone who understands legal procedure and who will fight for you and your family.

High speed accidents are frightening. As a result of the laws of physics, the more rapidly you (or the opposing vehicle) is traveling, the higher the possibility for loss of vehicle control, damage, and/or bodily injury when your vehicles collide. Even a slight "tap" at high speed can contribute to a devastating consequence if it causes you to lose control of your car or truck. The seriousness of collisions on the freeway - and their significantly greater accompanying speeds - lead to more severe accidents and consequently more substantial damage and claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are associated with an interstate (or any) accident in the La Habra, 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 100 % free 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 trauma are often the direct result of interstate accidents. Once again, due to the higher speeds and actual physical forces involved, the harm to people and vehicles is frequently more significant than a "fender bender" in a residential community. The possible seriousness of highway accidents multiplies 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 size and lack of maneuverability, larger trucks cannot stop as fast or make tight turns without the risk of rollover. This issue is compounded at the more significant speeds of highway traffic.Motorcycles are also an issue because they be inclined to "open up" their throttles when they get on the highway, and they can seemingly appear from nowhere.Irrespective of whether it involves a truck, another passenger vehicle, or a motorcycle, freeway crashes are frequently devastating, and you need support if you are to recuperate from the physical, financial, emotional, and psychological side effects of your involvement.

Absolutely. For that matter, you should never talk to a claims adjuster until after you’ve spoken to an attorney at law. Claims adjusters are employed by the insurance carrier, they do not represent you. It is their duty to save their organization's money, and they can’t accomplish that if they voluntarily provide you the maximum payment, so they're going to offer you less. Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC will get you more.

They may be responsible for all, a portion, or none of your medical expenses. Since California is a Comparative fault state, you are permitted to receive reasonable and customary medical related costs, but you are only able to receive the proportion that is not your fault. So, if the vehicle accident is determined to be 100% the fault of a second person, you ought to recover 100 percent of the damages. If, however, you are determined to be at fault in any way, your reimbursement will be lessened by the proportionate percentage.For example, if you were hit by a motor vehicle (they were at fault) but you were not wearing a seatbelt (as required under California Vehicle Code Section 27363), and injuries you sustained were 30% caused by your seatbelt infraction, your payment may be reduced by 30%.
