Frequently Asked Questions

Facing normal everyday life can be drastically affected as a result of your injuries. If you have any questions not covered here, please call our office. We will be happy to help you.

Am I Eligible for Emergency Healthcare Treatment in California If I Don’t Have Medical Health Insurance?

Am I Eligible for Emergency Healthcare Treatment in California If I Don’t Have Medical Health Insurance?

The short answer is Yes. Federal government policy mandates that medical centers are mandated to provide emergency attention in an attempt to stabilize the medical condition of anyone injured in a car accident. If you do not have insurance policy coverage, however, you will be billed directly by the professional medical service providers for any services utilized.Most insurance companies have cut discount rates with medicine and health companies to provide services at a reduced charge, but if you do not have health care insurance you will likely not receive these decreases or legally-mandated reductions for Medicare or Medi-Cal charges; you may be billed for the actual amounts due and prosecuted if you don't pay.

My Medical Related Bills Are Growing, Exactly What Should I Do?

Call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC to explore if there is support available to you. If you have a personalized professional medical plan, Medicare, Medi-Cal, Covered California, or ObamaCare, your insurance company should be invoiced for your medical charges, but you still might be responsible for satisfying an insurance deductible amount and for any co-payments in your insurance.You might also have medical care coverage already a part of your auto insurance policy, call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC to better understand your opportunities and to make sure you get every bit of the compensation you ought to get.

Is the Man Or Woman Who Crashed Into Me Legally Accountable for My Health-related Expenses?

Is the Man Or Woman Who Crashed Into Me Legally Accountable for My Health-related Expenses?

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%. Call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC to discuss your legal and medical solutions.

What is Generating My Neck And Back Pain After My Auto Accident?

What is Generating My Neck And Back Pain After My Auto Accident?

Accidents take place when forces meet. A number of of those factors may be stationary or moving, but when forces collide, physics happens. Newton's First Law of Motion states an object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. This law applies to you, your automobile, and anything your vehicle hits (or is hit by).Even though you may be wearing your seatbelt, you are not part of your car or truck. When an outside force causes your car to move in a separate direction than your body is moving, traumas occur. For example:

  • your body is immobile at a stop sign and your car gets smashed from behind
  • your body is traveling forward and your car or truck gets hit in the side
  • your body is moving forward and your car hits a tree

the forces that your body experiences are amplified by the change in your inertia and route of travel, and physiological harm can easily result. Unsurprisingly, a good number of the injuries you may sustain may not become obvious until long after the crash. Because of this, you ought to seek out the help of an car accident attorney like Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC immediately when you are included in an auto collision. You might have experienced long term trauma that may not be evident, and Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC will make sure that you get checked out and follow the most appropriate steps to ensure your health and safety and the practicality of any liability suit that might possibly come about from the car wreck.

I got in a Car Accident While Carrying out Work for My Company, What Should I Do?

I got in a Car Accident While Carrying out Work for My Company, What Should I Do?

Several companies require their workers to drive a car as an important part of their everyday work duties. Salespeople, shuttle drivers, bus drivers, truck drivers, delivery drivers, home health workers, and delivery drivers are always on the road for their employers. If you are involved in a car crash while operating while working you are eligible to register a workers’ compensation claim with your company.Generally, your commute to and from the office are not qualified for workers’ compensation claims, but there are exceptions, and Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC knows what those are. If, for instance, your business requires that you provide your own vehicle for work purposes, your travel back and forth may be eligible. Also, if you are seriously injured in the process of engaging in a common practice with your job role (running to the bank to make a corporate deposit, going to get lunch or snacks for your office or co-workers, etc.), you may also be eligible. The skilled team of attorneys at Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC will be certain to help answer your questions and concerns when you arrange your free, no commitment, consultation.

More Information on Auto Accident Injuries

Distracted Driving Accidents

It is very difficult to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car disruptions (kids, music, cellular devices, pets, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the view, vehicle traffic, other vehicles, billboards, wildlife animals, etc.), diversions occur.Regrettably, being distracted while driving 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 focus away from the road is dangerous. In the Santa Paula, 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.

Roll Over Accidents

Rollovers commonly occur due to the higher center of gravity in certain vehicles, particularly SUVs (Sport Utility Vehicles) and large trucks. Rollovers can occur when a driver turns the vehicle too quickly or sharply and the vehicle's center of gravity suddenly shifts. This shift may cause the tires to suffer a loss of contact with the road and the vehicle to flip. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be exceedingly hazardous. A combined 7,488 passenger vehicle drivers and occupants were killed in rollover crashes in 2016. 28% of the accidents did not include any other collision. (IIHS, 2018)As the acceptance of sports utility vehicles increases, so does the percentage of SUV-related traffic accidents. Unfortunately, the death rates involving SUVs is much higher than those 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 susceptible to rollovers. Since the roofing system of most vehicles is not designed to support the body weight of the vehicle, 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 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 kinds of side impact crashes: 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 collides with the passenger side of the other vehicle. Sideswipes can cause extensive damage to both vehicles, including structural issues and complications that cannot instantly be viewed but could make the vehicle quite unsafe. Other times the damage is so significant that the car is not drivable and could be a total loss. In either event, our attorneys will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance companies and any legal difficulties that may arise.The other form of side impact accident is the "T-bone" and can have much more life-threatening results. T-bone collisions happen when the front of one vehicle strikes the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone accidents are almost always more serious than sideswipes because the momentum in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" whereas a T-bone transmits all of the power and momentum from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The effect of a T-bone collision often translates to drastic injuries to the passengers of both vehicles, and can often result in somebody's death or permanent impairment. If you or your family member have been the victim of any type of car accident, we want to talk to you. Our legal professionals will help you figure out if there are legal and economic solutions available to you for your pain and suffering. Call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890 for a free, no obligation consultation.

Head On Crashes

Thankfully, frontal crashes make up only a small percentage of traffic collisions. Head-on crashes take place more often in outlying areas than metropolitan areas, accounting for 13 percent of all non-urban fatal collisions, while only comprising 7% of deadly collisions in metropolitan areas. (NHTSA)Due to the severity of virtually all head-on collisions, an ambulance and/or EMTs are almost always dispatched to the scene of the auto accident, resulting in significant health related expenditures in conjunction with the liability, property damage, and damage to the cars involved. As you can imagine, these types of catastrophes can transform the course of one's personal life physically, emotionally, and financially. You need an ally; someone who understands legal processes and who will fight for you and your loved ones. If you are included in a head-on collision - or any auto accident for that matter - you need to call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890 for a no-cost consultation. Our organization of legal professionals has collected millions of dollars in settlements for our happy clientele in the Santa Paula, CA region, allow us to do the same for you, your loved ones, family, or friends.

Interstate Crashes

High speed collisions are horrific. Owing to the laws of physics, the more quickly you (or the opposing vehicle) is traveling, the more significant the possibility for the loss of vehicular control, damage, and/or bodily injury when your vehicles collide. Even a tiny "bump" at high speed can contribute to a disastrous consequence if it causes you to lose control of your vehicle. The extent of crashes on the interstate - and their significantly greater speeds - lead to more major crashes and therefore greater damage and claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved in a highway (or any) accident in the Santa Paula, 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 discussion 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 potentially terminal injuries are often the consequence of interstate accidents. Once again, due to the high 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 possible seriousness of highway accidents goes up when you take into account all of the large commercial transport trucks, commercial vehicles, semitrailers, and tractor-trailers that seem to dominate the highways. Due to their weight and lack of maneuverability, heavier trucks can't stop as easily or make tight turns without the risk of rollover. This issue is compounded at the greater speeds of highway traffic.Motorcycles are also problematic because they tend to "open up" their throttles when they get on the interstate, and they can seemingly appear from nowhere.No matter whether it involves a motorcycle, a truck, or another passenger vehicle, highway traffic accidents are often disastrous, and you need support if you are to recover from the physical, financial, psychological, and emotional side effects of your involvement. Contact us today at (877) 278-6890.

Accidents Due to Weather Conditions

According to a 2019 study done by the Federal Highway Administration, about 21% of automotive vehicle accidents are weather-related.

  • 70% of weather-related crashes happen 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 motor vehicle traffic accidents kill more individuals annually than large-scale weather disasters. (The Weather Channel, 2018)Undoubtedly, weather conditions are a contributing factor in traffic crashes, and you need an expert who is there for you - rain or shine - and knowledgeable in dealing with all types of accidents. Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC has been helping Santa Paula, CA area residents mitigate all sorts of demands caused by traffic accidents for years. Call us at (877) 278-6890 and join our growing list of happy and satisfied clients.Unpleasant weather leads to treacherous driving conditions, dangerous roads, and more accidents. 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 requires 10 times longer to stop on snow and ice than it will on dry pavement (GEICO Insurance, 2018). If you are comfortable with wonderful weather like we have in Santa Paula, CA most of the year and you and/or your family are compelled to drive in ice, snow, fog, or sleet, you may run across conditions that lead to an accident. Don't worry, Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC has plenty of experience with all types of traffic accidents, and we're here when you need us.
