Distracted Driving Accidents
It is very difficult to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car distractions (your children, music, mobile phones, dogs and cats, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the scenery, traffic, other vehicles, billboards, wildlife animals, etc.), distractions occur.Unfortunately, being distracted while driving a motor vehicle is one of the most hazardous 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.

Roll Over Incidents
Rollovers typically 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 quickly and the vehicle's center of gravity suddenly shifts. This shift often causes the tires to suffer a loss of contact with the road and the vehicle to flip. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be very hazardous. A combined 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants died in rollover crashes in 2016. 28% of these didn't involve any other impact. (IIHS, 2018)As the popularity of SUVs 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 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 dropped 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 susceptible 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 inside the vehicle.Rollover accidents are also prevalent 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 typically occur when 2 (or more) vehicles are moving in the same direction and the driver's side of one of the vehicles collides with the passenger side of the other vehicle. Sideswipes can cause substantial damage to both vehicles, including structural problems and complications that cannot instantly be spotted but could make the vehicle unsafe. Other times the damage is so severe that the car is not drivable and could be a complete loss. In either event, our law firm will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance companies and any liability difficulties that may arise.The other form of side impact collision is the "T-bone" and can have much more fatal results. T-bone collisions take place when the front of one vehicle hits the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone collisions are almost always more dangerous than sideswipes because the momentum in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" whereas 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 results in extreme injuries to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in somebody's death or permanent impairment.

Thankfully, head-on collisions make up only a tiny percent of vehicle collisions. Head-on crashes take place most frequently in outlying locations than urban areas, making up 13 percent of all non-urban lethal collisions, while only comprising 7% of deadly crashes in urban areas. (NHTSA)Due to the severity of the majority of head-on accidents, EMTs and/or an ambulance is almost always dispatched to the scene of the vehicle accident, resulting in potentially substantial health related expenditures as well as the liability, property damage, and damage to the motor vehicles involved. Needless to say, these types of traffic accidents can change the course of one's everyday life physically, emotionally, and financially.

Interstate Auto Accidents
High speed crashes are terrifying. As a result of the laws of physics, the quicker you (or the opposing car) is going, the more substantial the chance for loss of vehicle control, damage, and/or physical injury when your vehicles collide. Even a slight "bump" at high speeds can contribute to a disastrous consequence if it makes you lose control of your car or truck. The degree of crashes on the highway - and their greater associated speeds - lead to more major collisions and therefore greater damage and compensation claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved in a highway (or any) accident in the La Mirada, 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 100 % free and carries no obligation, and you won't pay us anything unless we win your case and you receive a settlement.Fatalities and potentially terminal injuries are often the outcome of interstate accidents. Once again, due to the significant speeds and physical forces involved, the damage to people and vehicles is almost always greater than a "fender bender" in a residential location. The possible intensity of freeway accidents goes up when you take into account all of the large commercial transport trucks, commercial vehicles, semis, and tractor-trailers that seem to command the highways. Due to their mass and lack of maneuverability, heavier vehicles cannot stop as rapidly or make tight turns without risking rollover. This issue is compounded at the greater speeds of interstate traffic.Motorcycles are also an issue because they very often will "open up" their throttles when they get on the interstate, and they can seemingly appear from thin air.Irrespective of whether it involves a truck, another passenger vehicle, or a motorcycle, freeway collisions are usually disastrous, and you need help and support if you are to recuperate from the physical, emotional, psychological, and financial consequences of your involvement.

Accidents Due to Weather Conditions
According to a 2019 report conducted 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
- 3% in fog

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.
Call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC to explore if there is help and support readily available. If you have a private professional medical plan, Medicare, Medi-Cal, Covered California, or ObamaCare, your insurance provider should be invoiced for your healthcare costs, but you still can be responsible for fulfilling a deductible amount and for any copayments in your medical insurance.You may also have health care coverage integrated in your auto insurance policy, call Law Offices of John C.

They may be responsible for all, a portion, or none of your healthcare 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 responsibility. So, if the automobile accident is determined to be 100% the fault of a second person, you should recover one hundred percent of the damages. If, however, you are found to be to blame in any way, your reimbursement will be decreased by the proportionate amount.For example, if you were hit by a car (they were at fault) but you weren’t wearing a seatbelt (as required under California Vehicle Code Section 27363), and injuries you sustained were 30% due to your seatbelt violation, your legal claim may be reduced by 30%.
