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

Rollovers typically occur as a result of the higher center of gravity in specific vehicles, particularly 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 can cause the tires to lose physical contact with the road and the vehicle to flip over. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be extraordinarily harmful. A total of 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants died in rollover accidents in 2016. 28% of these did not involve any other collision. (IIHS, 2018)As the popularity of SUVs increases, so does the percentage of SUV-related traffic accidents. Unfortunately, the fatality 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 decreased 46% since 1975, SUV occupant deaths have risen ten-fold.The physical construction 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 roofing system 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 in the vehicle.Rollover accidents are also commonplace 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 crashes: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes typically occur when 2 (or more) automobiles 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 significant damage to both vehicles, including structural issues and complications that cannot immediately be seen but could make the car or truck unsafe. Other times the dent or damage is so extensive that the car or truck is not operational and could be a complete 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 accident is the "T-bone" and can have much more life-threatening results. T-bone collisions occur when the front of one vehicle hits the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone accidents are almost always worse than sideswipes because the energy 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 power of a T-bone collision often can cause considerable trauma to the passengers of both vehicles, and can often result in someone's death or permanent disability.

Thankfully, frontal crashes make up only a slight percent of vehicle collisions. Head-on crashes happen far more often in remote areas than metropolitan areas, accounting for 13 percent of all non-urban lethal crashes, while only comprising 7% of lethal crashes in urban areas. (NHTSA)Due to the severity of a large number of head-on crashes, an ambulance and/or EMTs are nearly always dispatched to the location of the auto accident, generating extensive medical bills in combination with the legal, property damage, and damage to the automobiles involved. Essentially, these types of catastrophes can alter the course of one's personal life physically, psychologically, and fiscally. You need an ally; someone who knows legal process and who will battle for you and your loved ones.

Freeway Car Accidents
High-speed collisions are terrifying. As a result of the laws of physics, the more rapidly you (or the opposing vehicle) is going, the better the opportunity for loss of vehicular control, damage, and/or physical injury when your vehicles collide. Even a small "tap" at high speed can lead to a disastrous outcome if it makes you lose control of your vehicle. The severity of accidents on the interstate - and their greater associated speeds - lead to more serious collisions and subsequently more extensive damage and claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved with a freeway (or any) accident in the Mayflower Village, 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 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 life-threatening trauma are often the consequence of highway accidents. Once again, due to the significant speeds and natural forces involved, the harm to people and vehicles is almost always more significant than a "fender bender" on a residential street. The potential seriousness of interstate accidents increases when you take into account all of the large commercial transport trucks, commercial vehicles, semis, and tractor-trailers that seem to take over the highways. Due to their bulk and lack of maneuverability, bigger vehicles cannot stop as readily or make tight turns without the risk of rollover. This problem is compounded at the more substantial speeds of highway traffic.Motorcycles are also a challenge because they very often will "open up" their throttles when they get on the interstate, and they can seemingly appear from nowhere.No matter whether it involves a truck, another passenger vehicle, or a motorcycle, freeway collisions are oftentimes catastrophic, and you need assistance if you are to recover from the physical, psychological, financial, and emotional effects of your involvement.
