It is extremely tough to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car disruptions (children, music, cellular phones, animals, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the scenery, vehicle traffic, other vehicles, billboards, wildlife animals, etc.), diversions occur.Regrettably, being distracted while driving a motor vehicle 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 draw your attention away from the road is dangerous.

Rollovers generally occur because of the higher center of gravity in specific vehicles, especially 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 often causes the tires to be deprived of contact with the road and the vehicle to flip over. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be extraordinarily dangerous. A total of 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants were killed in rollover accidents in 2016. 28% of these didn't include any other impact. (IIHS, 2018)As the acceptance of sports utility vehicles increases, so does the proportion of SUV-related traffic collisions. 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 passenger deaths in non-SUV cars occurred in rollovers. The IIHS 2018 study says that while car occupant deaths have decreased 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 typical passenger cars and therefore are more vulnerable to rollovers. Since the roof structure of most vehicles is not designed to support the body 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.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 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 concerns and complications that cannot immediately be seen but could render the vehicle unsafe. Other times the dent or damage is so substantial that the car is not operational and could be a complete loss. Either way, our law firm will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance underwriters and any liability complications that may arise.The other kind of side impact collision is the "T-bone" and can have much more life threatening results. T-bone collisions happen when the front of one vehicle hits the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone auto accidents are almost always worse than sideswipes because the energy 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 translates to drastic trauma to the passengers of both vehicles, and can often result in someone's death or permanent impairment. If you or someone close have been the victim of any type of car accident, we want to talk to you. Our legal specialists will help you figure out if there are legal and economic remedies available to you for your pain and suffering. Call Law Offices of John C.

Head On Crashes
Thankfully, head-on collisions make up only a tiny percent of vehicle crashes. Head-on collisions happen more frequently in non-urban areas than urban areas, making up 13 percent of all rural deadly collisions, while only comprising 7 percent of deadly collisions in urban areas. (NHTSA)Due to the extent of most head-on collisions, EMTs and/or an ambulance is almost always dispatched to the scene of the crash, generating potentially significant medical expenses in addition to the legal, property damage, and damage to the cars or trucks involved. Not surprisingly, 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 techniques and who will fight for you and your loved ones.

High-speed accidents are frightening. Because of the laws of physics, the more rapidly you (or the opposing car) is going, the more substantial the possibility for the loss of vehicle control, damage, and/or bodily trauma when your vehicles collide. Even a small "tap" at high speeds can give rise to a catastrophic outcome if it makes you lose control of your vehicle. The extent of collisions on the freeway - and their significantly greater associated speeds - lead to more severe crashes and subsequently more extensive damage and insurance claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved in a freeway (or any) accident in the Vincent, 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 free and carries no obligation, and you won't pay us anything unless we win your case and you receive a settlement.Fatalities and life-threatening trauma are often the consequence of highway accidents. Once again, due to the high speeds and natural forces involved, the damage to vehicles and people is typically greater than a "fender bender" in a residential district. The possible extent of freeway accidents multiplies when you take into account all of the large commercial transport trucks, commercial vehicles, semis, and tractor-trailers that seem to dominate the freeways. Due to their size and lack of maneuverability, bigger trucks cannot stop as easily or make tight turns without the risk of rollover. This problem is compounded at the more substantial rates of speed of interstate traffic.Motorcycles are also an issue because they have a tendency to "open up" their throttles when they get on the interstate, and they can seemingly appear from nowhere.Irrespective of whether it involves a motorcycle, another passenger vehicle, or a truck, highway traffic accidents are frequently disastrous, and you need support if you are to recuperate from the physical, financial, emotional, and psychological consequences of your involvement.

- 16% on snowy or slushy pavement
