Distracted Driving Accidents
It is extremely tough to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car distractions (children, music, mobile phones, pets, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the view, automobile traffic, other vehicles, billboards, wildlife, etc.), diversions occur.Regrettably, 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 take your focus away from the road is dangerous. In the Shadow Hills, CA area there are plenty of distractions, and if one of them leads to you getting in a car accident, you know who to call: Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890.
Rollovers typically occur as a consequence of the higher center of gravity in specific vehicles, specifically 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 shifts suddenly. This shift can cause the tires to lose contact with the ground and the vehicle to flip. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be incredibly hazardous. A total of 7,488 passenger vehicle drivers and occupants died in rollover crashes in 2016. 28% of these did not include any other collision. (IIHS, 2018)As the popularity of SUVs increases, so does the percentage of SUV-related traffic collisions. 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 construction of SUVs are such that they have a higher center of gravity than ordinary passenger cars and therefore are more vulnerable to rollovers. Since the roof of most vehicles is not designed to support the 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 crashes: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes commonly 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 observed but could render the vehicle quite unsafe. Other times the damage is so severe that the car or truck is not drivable and could be a complete loss. Either way, our legal team will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance companies and any liability concerns 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 take place when the front of one vehicle hits the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone crashes are almost always more dangerous than sideswipes because the momentum in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" whereas a T-bone transmits all of the energy and force from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The power of a T-bone collision often brings about significant trauma to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in someone's death or permanent impairment.

Head On Accidents
Thankfully, frontal accidents make up only a slight percent of vehicle collisions. Head-on accidents take place more often in remote areas than metropolitan areas, accounting for 13 percent of all non-urban fatal accidents, while only comprising 7 percent of lethal collisions in urban areas. (NHTSA)Due to the extent of most head-on accidents, EMTs and/or an ambulance is almost always dispatched to the scene of the auto accident, which results in substantial health related charges not to mention the legal, property damage, and damage to the automobiles involved. Essentially, these types of car accidents can alter the focus of one's lifestyle physically, emotionally, and financially. You need a supporter; someone who knows legal techniques and who will fight for you and your loved ones.

Highway Auto Accidents
High speed accidents are horrific. Due to the laws of physics, the more quickly you (or the opposing car) is moving, the more significant the chance for loss of vehicular control, damages, and/or personal injury when your vehicles collide. Even a minor "tap" at high speed can give rise to a disastrous result if it makes you lose control of your car or truck. The severity of collisions on the highway - and their higher accompanying speeds - lead to more serious collisions and consequently more significant damage and claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved with an interstate (or any) accident in the Shadow Hills, 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 absolutely free 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 result of interstate accidents. Once again, due to the very high speeds and actual physical forces involved, the damage to vehicles and people is frequently more significant than a "fender bender" in a residential district. The possible extent of freeway accidents increases when you take into account all of the large trucks, commercial vehicles, semis, and tractor-trailers that seem to command the freeways. Due to their bulk and lack of maneuverability, bigger vehicles cannot stop as rapidly or make tight turns without the risk of rollover. This condition is compounded at the more substantial speeds of interstate traffic.Motorcycles are also a challenge because they possess a tendency to "open up" their throttles when they get on the highway, and they can seemingly appear from thin air.No matter whether it involves a motorcycle, a truck, or another passenger vehicle, highway collisions are often devastating, and you need help if you are to recuperate from the physical, financial, emotional, and psychological side effects of your involvement.
