Distracted Driving Accidents
It is quite difficult to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car disruptions (young children, music, cellular devices, your pets, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the view, vehicle traffic, other vehicles, billboards, animals, etc.), diversions occur.Unfortunately, being distracted while driving a vehicle 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 draw your focus away from the road is dangerous. In the Newbury Park, CA area there are plenty of distractions, and if one of them leads to you getting in a major accident, you know who to call: Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890.
Rollovers normally 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 often causes the tires to suffer a loss of physical contact with the road and the vehicle to flip over. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be extraordinarily hazardous. A combined 7,488 passenger vehicle drivers and occupants died in rollover accidents in 2016. 28% of the accidents did not involve any other impact. (IIHS, 2018)As the acceptance of sports utility vehicles increases, so does the proportion of SUV-related traffic accidents. Unfortunately, the death 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 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 traditional passenger cars and therefore are more vulnerable to rollovers. Since the roof of most vehicles is not designed to support the body 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.Roll-over 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 typically occur when two (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 concerns and complications that cannot immediately be spotted but could make the car or truck unsafe. Other times the dent or damage is so extensive 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 carriers and any liability situations that may arise.The other kind of side impact accident is the "T-bone" and can have much more lethal results. T-bone collisions take place when the front of one vehicle hits the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone auto accidents 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 energy and momentum from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The effect of a T-bone accident often brings about severe injuries to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in someone's death or permanent disability.

Our legal specialists will help you determine if there are legal and financial remedies available to you for your pain and suffering. Call Law Offices of John C.

Head On Crashes
Thankfully, head-on collisions make up only a small percentage of vehicle accidents. Head-on accidents occur most often in outlying locations than metropolitan areas, making up 13% of all non-urban deadly crashes, while only comprising 7 percent of lethal collisions in urban areas. (NHTSA)Due to the nature of virtually all head-on collisions, an ambulance and/or EMTs are nearly always dispatched to the scene of the accident, bringing about considerable medical related bills in addition to the legal, property damage, and damage to the motor vehicles involved. Needless to say, these types of traffic accidents can alter the focus of one's daily lifestyle physically, psychologically, and fiscally. You need an ally; someone who knows legal techniques and who will battle for you and your loved ones. If you are involved with a head-on collision - or any motor vehicle accident for that matter - you need to call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890 for a no obligation consultation.

Freeway Car Accidents
High-speed crashes are horrific. Because of the laws of physics, the quicker you (or the opposing car) is traveling, the better the possibility for loss of vehicle control, damages, and/or bodily injury when your vehicles collide. Even a little "bump" at high speeds can contribute to a catastrophic consequence if it triggers you to lose control of your vehicle. The degree of accidents on the interstate - and their higher than average speeds - lead to more severe collisions and subsequently more substantial damage and claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved with a freeway (or any) accident in the Newbury Park, 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 appointment is complimentary 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 direct result of freeway accidents. Once again, due to the above average speeds and physical forces involved, the damage to vehicles and people is almost always greater than a "fender bender" in a residential neighborhood. The potential extent of interstate accidents multiplies when you take into account all of the large trucks, commercial vehicles, 18 wheelers, and tractor-trailers that seem to take over the freeways. Due to their bulk and lack of maneuverability, larger vehicles cannot stop as rapidly or make tight turns without risking rollover. This condition is compounded at the greater rates of speed of interstate traffic.Motorcycles are also a challenge because they have been found to "open up" their throttles when they get on the freeway, and they can seemingly appear from thin air.No matter whether it involves a truck, another passenger vehicle, or a motorcycle, interstate collisions are usually catastrophic, and you need help and support if you are to recuperate from the physical, psychological, financial, and emotional 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 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
