Distracted Driving Accidents
It is extremely difficult to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car disruptions (your children, music, mobile phones, animals, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the scenery, automobile 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 take your attention away from the road is dangerous.

Rollovers commonly occur as a result 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 lose contact with the road and the vehicle to flip over. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be exceptionally dangerous. A combined 7,488 passenger vehicle drivers and occupants died in rollover crashes in 2016. 28% of these did not involve any other collision. (IIHS, 2018)As the level of popularity of SUVs increases, so does the percentage of SUV-related traffic collisions. 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 declined 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 conventional passenger cars and therefore are more vulnerable to rollovers. Since the roof structure 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.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 varieties of side impact collisions: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes typically occur when two (or more) vehicles 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 significant damage to both vehicles, including structural problems and complications that cannot instantly be viewed but could make the vehicle dangerous. Other times the dent or damage is so severe that the car is not operational and could be a total loss. Either way, our legal team will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance underwriters and any legal situations that may arise.The other type of side impact accident is the "T-bone" and can have much more dangerous results. T-bone collisions take place when the front of one vehicle hits the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone traffic accidents are almost always worse than sideswipes because the momentum in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" while a T-bone transfers all of the energy and momentum from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The effect of a T-bone collision often translates to extreme injuries to the passengers of both vehicles, and can often result in someone's death 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 figure out if there are legal and financial remedies available to you for your pain and suffering. Call Law Offices of John C.

Thankfully, frontal crashes make up only a slight percentage of automobile crashes. Head-on crashes occur most often in remote areas than urban areas, accounting for 13% of all non-urban lethal crashes, while only comprising 7% of fatal collisions in urban areas. (NHTSA)Due to the nature of the majority of head-on crashes, EMTs and/or an ambulance is nearly always dispatched to the scene of the crash, leading to potentially extensive medical related costs in combination with the liability, property damage, and damage to the motor vehicles involved. Not surprisingly, these types of catastrophes can alter the focus of one's way of life physically, psychologically, and economically. You need a supporter; someone who understands legal processes and who will fight for you. If you are involved with a head-on collision - or any accident for that matter - you will want to call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890 for a no-cost consultation.

High speed accidents are terrifying. Owing to the laws of physics, the more rapidly you (or the opposing vehicle) is traveling, the higher the chance for loss of vehicle control, damages, and/or physical trauma when your vehicles collide. Even a tiny "tap" at high speeds can contribute to a catastrophic result if it triggers you to lose control of your vehicle. The extent of crashes on the interstate - and their greater associated speeds - lead to more major crashes and therefore more significant damage and insurance claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are associated with a freeway (or any) accident in the Los Serranos, 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 free of charge and carries no obligation, and you won't pay us anything unless we win your case and you receive a settlement.Death and life-threatening injuries are often the result of freeway accidents. Once again, due to the higher speeds and actual physical forces involved, the damage to vehicles and people is generally more significant than a "fender bender" in a residential neighborhood. The possible severity of interstate accidents increases when you take into account all of the large commercial transport trucks, commercial vehicles, 18 wheelers, and tractor-trailers that seem to dominate the freeways. Due to their weight and lack of maneuverability, bigger vehicles can't stop as rapidly or make tight turns without the risk of rollover. This problem is compounded at the higher rates of speed of interstate traffic.Motorcycles are also a problem because they possess a tendency to "open up" their throttles when they get on the freeway, and they can seemingly appear from thin air.Despite whether it involves a truck, another passenger vehicle, or a motorcycle, interstate traffic accidents are frequently catastrophic, and you need assistance if you are to recuperate from the physical, emotional, financial, and psychological consequences of your involvement. Contact us today at (877) 278-6890.
Accidents Due to Weather Conditions
According to a 2019 study performed by the Federal Highway Administration, about 21% of automotive vehicle crashes are weather related.
- 70% of weather-related crashes 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
The Weather Channel reported in 2018 that weather related vehicle accidents kill more people annually than large scale weather disasters.

Certainly a contributing component is that it will take ten times longer to stop on snow and ice than it does on dry pavement (GEICO Insurance, 2018).

Ye, APLC to better understand your choices and to make sure you get all of the money you ought to get.
Absolutely. In fact, you shouldn’t communicate with a claims adjuster until after you have spoken to a legal professional. Claims adjusters are employed by the insurance carrier, they do not work for you. It is their duty to protect their organization's money, and they can’t accomplish that if they voluntarily provide you with the greatest settlement, 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%.
