Distracted Driving Accidents
It is really difficult to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car distractions (kids, music, cellular phones, cats and dogs, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the scenery, vehicle traffic, other vehicles, billboards, wildlife, etc.), distractions occur.Unfortunately, being distracted while driving is one of the most dangerous 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 take your eyes 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 shifts suddenly. This shift can cause the tires to lose physical contact with the road and the vehicle to flip. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be exceedingly dangerous. A combined 7,488 passenger vehicle drivers and occupants perished in rollover accidents in 2016. 28% of the accidents didn't involve any other collision. (IIHS, 2018)As the popularity of sports utility vehicles increases, so does the proportion 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 occupant 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 traditional passenger cars and therefore are more susceptible to rollovers. Since the roofing system of most vehicles is not designed to support the body weight of the car, the impact 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 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 types of side impact crashes: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes usually occur when 2 (or more) vehicles are traveling 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 issues and complications that cannot instantly be spotted but could make the vehicle unsafe. Other times the damage is so severe that the car or truck is not drivable 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 legal difficulties that may arise.The other kind of side impact accident is the "T-bone" and can have much more dangerous results. T-bone collisions come about when the front of one vehicle strikes the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone car accidents are almost always more dangerous than sideswipes because the energy in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" while a T-bone transmits all of the power and momentum from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The impact of a T-bone collision often brings about severe injuries to the passengers of both vehicles, and can often result in somebody's death or permanent impairment.

Thankfully, head on accidents make up only a tiny percent of traffic crashes. Head-on collisions happen far more often in non-urban locations than metropolitan areas, making up 13 percent of all non-urban fatal accidents, while only comprising 7 percent of lethal crashes in metropolitan areas. (NHTSA)Due to the nature of almost all head-on collisions, EMTs and/or an ambulance is almost always dispatched to the scene of the crash, resulting in substantial healthcare expenditures along with the legal, property damage, and damage to the cars or trucks involved. Essentially, these types of accidents can change the focus of one's life physically, emotionally, and financially. You need a proponent; someone who knows legal techniques and who will battle for you and your family.

High-speed collisions are horrific. Due to the laws of physics, the faster you (or the opposing car) is traveling, the higher the possibility for loss of vehicular control, damages, and/or bodily injury when your vehicles collide. Even a little "tap" at high speeds can lead to a devastating result if it makes you lose control of your vehicle. The seriousness of crashes on the freeway - and their significantly greater speeds - lead to more major accidents and therefore more significant damage and insurance claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved with a highway (or any) accident in the Lawndale, 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.

Once again, due to the significant speeds and actual physical forces involved, the damage to vehicles and people is typically more significant than a "fender bender" on a residential street. The potential 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 mass and lack of maneuverability, heavier vehicles can't stop as readily or make tight turns without the risk of rollover. This issue is compounded at the greater rates of speed of highway traffic.Motorcycles are also a problem because they have the tendency to "open up" their throttles when they get on the interstate, and they can seemingly appear from nowhere.Irrespective of whether it involves another passenger vehicle, a motorcycle, or a truck, highway catastrophes are oftentimes disastrous, and you need assistance if you are to recover from the physical, psychological, emotional, and financial side effects of your involvement.

Accidents Due to Weather Conditions
According to a 2019 report conducted by the Federal Highway Administration, about 21% of motor vehicle accidents are weather related.
- 70% of weather-related accidents occur on wet pavement
- 46% during rainfall
- 18% during snow or sleet
- 16% on snowy or slushy pavement
- 13% on icy pavement
- 3% in fog

It stands to reason that the worse the weather is, the more likely there will be negative effects on the road. According to Carsurance.net there are about 156,000 accidents annually due to icy roads. Undoubtedly a contributing variable is that it takes 10 times longer to stop on snow and ice than it does on dry pavement (GEICO Insurance, 2018).

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 find out if there is support readily available. If you have a personal medical plan, Medicare, Medi-Cal, Covered California, or ObamaCare, your insurance provider should be invoiced for your medical related obligations, but you still could be responsible for satisfying an insurance deductible amount of money and for any copayments in your medical care insurance.You might also have health coverage that are part of your auto insurance policy, call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC to better understand your options and to ensure that you get every bit of the money you deserve.
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%.
