The most frequent (62%) cause of distracted driving crashes is being lost in thought or letting your mind wander.

Rollovers usually occur due to 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 quickly or sharply and the vehicle's center of gravity suddenly shifts. This shift often causes the tires to lose contact with the road and the vehicle to flip over. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be exceptionally harmful. A total of 7,488 passenger vehicle drivers and occupants perished in rollover crashes in 2016. 28% of the accidents didn't include 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 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 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 ordinary passenger cars and therefore are more susceptible to rollovers. Since the roof of most vehicles is not designed to support the body weight of the car, 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 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 accidents: 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 substantial damage to both vehicles, including structural concerns and complications that cannot immediately be seen but could render the vehicle dangerous. Other times the damage is so extensive that the car is not drivable and could be a complete loss. Either way, our law firm will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance companies and any legal situations 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 hits the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone crashes are almost always more serious than sideswipes because the energy in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" while a T-bone transmits all of the power and force from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The effect of a T-bone accident often translates to severe trauma to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in somebody's death or permanent disability.

Our legal specialists will help you determine if there are legal and economic solutions available to you for your pain and suffering. Call Law Offices of John C.

Head On Accidents
Thankfully, head-on accidents make up only a tiny percent of driving accidents. Head-on crashes happen far more frequently in agricultural locations than metropolitan areas, making up 13 percent of all rural fatal crashes, while only comprising 7 percent of lethal accidents in metropolitan areas. (NHTSA)Due to the extent of almost all head-on accidents, EMTs and/or an ambulance is nearly always dispatched to the location of the accident, generating potentially extensive healthcare expenditures in combination with the liability, property damage, and damage to the motor vehicles involved. Essentially, these types of collisions can change the focus of one's daily life physically, psychologically, and financially. You need a supporter; someone who knows legal strategy and who will fight for you and your family.

High-speed collisions are frightening. Because of the laws of physics, the more quickly you (or the opposing vehicle) is traveling, the higher the possibility for loss of vehicle control, damages, and/or physical trauma when your vehicles collide. Even a small "bump" at high speed can contribute to a devastating consequence if it causes you to lose control of your car or truck. The seriousness of collisions on the highway - and their significantly greater associated speeds - lead to more substantial accidents and consequently more significant damage and claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are associated with a freeway (or any) accident in the West Puente Valley, 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 completely 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 result of highway accidents. Once again, due to the higher speeds and physical forces involved, the harm to vehicles and people is generally more significant than a "fender bender" in a residential neighborhood. The possible seriousness of highway accidents increases when you take into account all of the large trucks, commercial vehicles, 18 wheelers, and tractor-trailers that seem to take over the freeways. Due to their body mass and lack of maneuverability, larger vehicles cannot stop as quickly or make tight turns without the risk of rollover. This issue is compounded at the more substantial speeds of interstate traffic.Motorcycles are also a problem because they have the tendency to "open up" their throttles when they get on the highway, and they can seemingly appear from thin air.Irrespective of whether it involves another passenger vehicle, a truck or a motorcycle, interstate catastrophes are oftentimes catastrophic, and you need support if you are to recuperate from the physical, financial, emotional, and psychological consequences of your involvement.
