Distracted Driving Accidents
It is really difficult to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car distractions (your children, music, cellular phones, animals, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the view, automobile traffic, other vehicles, billboards, animals, etc.), diversions occur.Regrettably, being distracted while behind the wheel 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 eyes away from the road is dangerous. In the Stanton, 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 Crashes
Rollovers normally occur due to the higher center of gravity in specific 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 shifts suddenly. This shift may cause the tires to suffer a loss of contact with the ground and the vehicle to flip over. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be exceptionally hazardous. A combined 7,488 passenger vehicle drivers and occupants died in rollover crashes in 2016. 28% of the accidents didn't involve any other collision. (IIHS, 2018)As the acceptance of SUVs increases, so does the proportion of SUV-related traffic collisions. Unfortunately, the death rates involving SUVs is much higher than that of other vehicles. According to a 2019 IIHS study, 42% of SUV passenger 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 susceptible to rollovers. Since the roof 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 inside the vehicle.Rollover 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 kinds of side impact collisions: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes usually occur when 2 (or more) cars or trucks 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 substantial damage to both vehicles, including structural concerns and complications that cannot instantly be observed but could make the vehicle dangerous. Other times the damage is so extensive that the car or truck is not drivable and could be a total loss. In either event, our law firm will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance underwriters 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 strikes the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone collisions are almost always more dangerous than sideswipes because the momentum in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" while 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 can cause extreme injuries to the passengers of both vehicles, and can often result in someone's loss of life or permanent impairment.

Head On Crashes
Thankfully, head on collisions make up only a tiny percentage of automobile crashes. Head-on crashes happen far more often in remote locations than urban areas, making up 13 percent of all non-urban lethal accidents, while only comprising 7% of lethal accidents in urban areas. (NHTSA)Due to the nature of the majority of head-on accidents, an ambulance and/or EMTs are almost always dispatched to the location of the auto accident, resulting in considerable medical related bills as well as the liability, property damage, and damage to the cars or trucks involved. Needless to say, these types of catastrophes can transform the focus of one's life time physically, emotionally, and fiscally. You need an ally; someone who understands legal procedure and who will fight for you and your loved ones.

High-speed collisions are frightening. Due to the laws of physics, the more quickly you (or the opposing vehicle) is going, the higher the chance for the loss of vehicle control, damage, and/or personal injury when your vehicles collide. Even a tiny "tap" at high speeds can lead to a devastating outcome if it makes you lose control of your car or truck. The extent of collisions on the interstate - and their significantly greater associated speeds - lead to more major collisions and therefore higher damage and insurance claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved in an interstate (or any) accident in the Stanton, 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 absolutely 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 injuries are often the direct result of highway accidents. Once again, due to the higher than average speeds and natural forces involved, the harm to people and vehicles is typically more significant than a "fender bender" in a residential community. The possible extent of interstate accidents multiplies 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 size and lack of maneuverability, larger vehicles cannot stop as readily or make tight turns without the risk of rollover. This problem is compounded at the higher rates of speed of freeway traffic.Motorcycles are also a problem because they very often will "open up" their throttles when they get on the interstate, and they can seemingly appear from thin air.No matter whether it involves another passenger vehicle, a truck or a motorcycle, freeway crashes are usually disastrous, and you need help if you are to recuperate from the physical, emotional, psychological, and financial side effects of your involvement.
