It is really difficult to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car distractions (children, music, cellular phones, pets, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the view, vehicle traffic, other vehicles, billboards, wildlife animals, 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 draw your eyes away from the road is dangerous.

Roll Over Incidents
Rollovers commonly occur as a consequence of the higher center of gravity in select vehicles, especially 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 lose contact with the ground and the vehicle to flip. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be tremendously dangerous. A total of 7,488 passenger vehicle drivers and occupants were killed in rollover accidents in 2016. 28% of these didn't include any other collision. (IIHS, 2018)As the popularity of sports utility vehicles increases, so does the percentage of SUV-related traffic accidents. Unfortunately, the fatality rates involving SUVs is much higher than those of other vehicles. According to a 2019 IIHS study, 42% of SUV passenger deaths occurred in rollovers while only 20% of occupant 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 of SUVs are such that they have a higher center of gravity than traditional passenger cars and therefore are more prone to rollovers. Since the roof of most vehicles is not designed to support the body 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 commonplace 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 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 problems and complications that cannot instantly be viewed but could make the vehicle unsafe. Other times the dent or damage is so substantial 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 providers and any legal complications that may arise.The other type of side impact accident is the "T-bone" and can have much more deadly results. T-bone collisions take place when the front of one vehicle strikes the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone crashes are almost always much worse than sideswipes because the momentum in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" while a T-bone transfers all of the power and force from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The impact of a T-bone accident often brings about drastic trauma to the passengers of both vehicles, and can often result in someone's loss of life or permanent disability. If you or someone you love have been the victim of any type of car accident, we want to talk to you. Our legal experts will help you discover if there are legal and financial remedies available to you for your pain and suffering. Call Law Offices of John C.

Head On Collisions
Thankfully, head on crashes make up only a small percentage of vehicle accidents. Head-on collisions happen most often in agricultural areas than urban areas, making up 13 percent of all rural deadly accidents, while only comprising 7% of lethal collisions in metropolitan areas. (NHTSA)Due to the intensity of almost all head-on crashes, an ambulance and/or EMTs are almost always dispatched to the location of the auto accident, bringing about potentially substantial medical-related expenses in combination with the liability, property damage, and damage to the cars or trucks involved. As you can imagine, these types of car accidents can alter the course of one's everyday living physically, emotionally, and economically. You need an ally; someone who knows legal procedure and who will fight for you and your loved ones.

High speed crashes are horrific. Due to the laws of physics, the more quickly you (or the opposing vehicle) is traveling, the better the opportunity for loss of vehicular control, damages, and/or personal trauma when your vehicles collide. Even a small "tap" at high speed can lead to a devastating outcome if it makes you lose control of your vehicle. The seriousness of crashes on the highway - and their greater associated speeds - lead to more major accidents and subsequently more significant damage and insurance claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are associated with an interstate (or any) accident in the Villa 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.

Once again, due to the significant speeds and physical forces involved, the harm to vehicles and people is normally greater than a "fender bender" in a residential location. The possible intensity of freeway accidents goes up when you take into account all of the large trucks, commercial vehicles, semitrailers, and tractor-trailers that seem to take over the highways. Due to their body mass and lack of maneuverability, larger trucks cannot stop as quickly or make tight turns without risking rollover. This problem is compounded at the greater rates of interstate traffic.Motorcycles are also a problem because they be inclined 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 truck, another passenger vehicle, or a motorcycle, interstate catastrophes are often devastating, and you need support if you are to recuperate from the physical, financial, psychological, and emotional consequences of your involvement.

Accidents Due to Weather Conditions
According to a 2019 study done by the Federal Highway Administration, about 21% of motor vehicle accidents are weather related.

- 46% during rainfall
- 18% during snow or sleet
- 16% on snowy or slushy pavement
- 13% on icy pavement
- 3% in fog

Definitely. For that matter, you shouldn’t communicate with a claims adjuster until after you have spoken to an attorney at law. Claims adjusters are employed by the insurance underwriter, they don't represent you. It is their duty to preserve their company's cash, and they can’t accomplish that if they voluntarily offer you the greatest settlement, so they are going to offer you less. Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC will get you more.
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%.
