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 generally occur due to the higher center of gravity in certain vehicles, primarily 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 may cause the tires to be deprived 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 occupants died in rollover accidents in 2016. 28% of the accidents didn't involve any other impact. (IIHS, 2018)As the level of popularity of sports utility vehicles 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 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 dropped 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 regular passenger cars and therefore are more prone to rollovers. Since the roof of most vehicles is not designed to support the weight of the car, the damage 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 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 usually occur when 2 (or more) cars or trucks 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 observed but could make the vehicle unsafe. Other times the damage is so significant that the car or truck is not operational and could be a complete loss. Either way, our attorneys will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance underwriters and any liability concerns that may arise.The other form of side impact collision is the "T-bone" and can have much more life-threatening 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" whereas a T-bone transmits all of the energy and momentum from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The impact of a T-bone collision often results in considerable trauma to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in somebody's death or permanent impairment. If you or someone close have been the victim of any type of vehicle accident, we want to talk to you. Our legal experts will help you figure out if there are legal and financial solutions available to you for your pain and suffering. Call Law Offices of John C.

Head On Crashes
Thankfully, head on accidents make up only a tiny percent of driving crashes. Head-on collisions take place more often in outlying locations than metropolitan areas, making up 13% of all non-urban fatal collisions, while only comprising 7% of deadly crashes in urban areas. (NHTSA)Due to the severity of virtually all head-on collisions, EMTs and/or an ambulance is almost always dispatched to the scene of the vehicle accident, generating potentially significant health-related costs along with the liability, property damage, and damage to the motor vehicles involved. Needless to say, these types of catastrophes can change the focus of one's everyday living physically, psychologically, and financially. You need a proponent; someone who knows legal processes and who will battle for you and your family.

High speed collisions are terrifying. Owing to the laws of physics, the more rapidly you (or the opposing car) is going, the higher the possibility for the loss of vehicle control, damage, and/or physical trauma when your vehicles collide. Even a minor "tap" at high speed can give rise to a devastating result if it makes you lose control of your vehicle. The seriousness of auto accidents on the interstate - and their higher than average speeds - lead to more serious collisions and consequently greater damage and compensation claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved with a freeway (or any) accident in the Quartz Hill, 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 completely free 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 interstate accidents. Once again, due to the higher speeds and natural forces involved, the harm to people and vehicles is typically more significant than a "fender bender" in a residential location. The potential severity of highway accidents multiplies when you take into account all of the large trucks, commercial vehicles, 18 wheelers, and tractor-trailers that seem to dominate the highways. Due to their mass and lack of maneuverability, larger vehicles cannot stop as rapidly or make tight turns without risking rollover. This condition is compounded at the more significant speeds of highway traffic.Motorcycles are also a challenge because they have the tendency to "open up" their throttles when they get on the highway, and they can seemingly appear from nowhere.Regardless of whether it involves another passenger vehicle, a motorcycle, or a truck, interstate accidents are often catastrophic, and you need help and support if you are to recuperate from the physical, financial, psychological, and emotional side effects of your involvement.
