Do Traffic Laws Vary in Work Zones?

Do Traffic Laws Vary in Work Zones?

Yes. Speed limits are frequently lower and penalties are more substantial. California Vehicle Code 22362 says that it is a prima facie violation of the basic speed law to travel more than posted speed limit signs within 400 feet of a highway construction site and that the limits can be set as low as 25 miles-per-hour. California Vehicle Code 42010 establishes increased penalty charges and fines for speeding violations around Safety Enhancement Double Fine Zones.If you are ticketed for an infraction in a Work Zone you need to call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC so you can more fully understand the fees and penalties you could probably have to deal with.

Can a Car Crash Lawyer Help with Settlement Claim Adjusters?

Can a Car Crash Lawyer Help with Settlement Claim Adjusters?

Absolutely. In fact, you shouldn’t communicate with a claims adjuster until after you have spoken to a legal professional. Claims adjusters are employed by the insurance carrier, they do not work for you. It is their duty to protect their organization's money, and they can’t accomplish that if they voluntarily provide you with the greatest settlement, so they're going to offer you less. Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC will get you more.

Is My Vehicle Totaled?

Is My Vehicle Totaled?

California uses a total loss formula to identify whether or not it will be more cost-effective to fix a vehicle or declare it a total loss. If the expense to fix your car is greater than its actual cash value (ACV), then your insurance company will probably total the car. The ACV of your car or truck is dependent upon its age, how many miles have been driven, resale value, overall condition, and the purchase price of comparable cars in your region. This suggests that the ACV of your vehicle could differ according to which part of the Altadena, CA region you live.If, after the auto accident, a vehicle can't be returned to safe and drivable condition – whatever the cost – the insurance underwriter may proclaim it a total loss.

How Long Does It Take to Settle a Claim after an Auto Accident?

How Long Does It Take to Settle a Claim after an Auto Accident?

It will take as long as it takes. There's no way to estimate how much time it will require to settle a claim after an auto wreck. Uncomplicated fender-benders with no health-related costs and little or no property damage can be settled very quickly, although bigger auto accidents involving many different cars or trucks, numerous personal injuries, and multiple individuals can take many years to wrap up.As with any car crash, one of your first calls ought to be to a Lawyer, and the professionals at Law Offices of John C.

More Information on Auto Accident Injuries

Distracted Driving Accidents

It is very difficult to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car distractions (young children, music, mobile phones, animals, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the view, 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 draw your eyes away from the road is dangerous. In the Westmont, 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.

Rollover Accidents

Rollovers normally occur as a result of the higher center of gravity in particular vehicles, primarily 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 suddenly shifts. This shift may cause the tires to suffer a loss of physical contact with the road and the vehicle to flip. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be extremely harmful. A total of 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants died in rollover crashes in 2016. 28% of these did not involve any other collision. (IIHS, 2018)As the popularity of sports utility vehicles 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 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 construction 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 roofing system of most vehicles is not designed to support the body weight of the vehicle, the impact 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 types of side impact collisions: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes typically occur when two (or more) automobiles 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 extensive damage to both vehicles, including structural issues and complications that cannot instantly be observed but could render the vehicle dangerous. Other times the damage is so severe that the car or truck is not drivable and could be a complete loss. In either event, our attorneys will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance companies and any legal issues that may arise.The other type of side impact collision is the "T-bone" and can have much more deadly results. T-bone collisions occur when the front of one vehicle strikes 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" while a T-bone transmits all of the power and force from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The power of a T-bone accident often brings about significant trauma to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in someone's death or permanent disability. If you or a family member have been the victim of any type of automobile accident, we want to talk to you. Our legal professionals will help you discover if there are legal and economic remedies available to you for your pain and suffering. Call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890 for a free, no obligation consultation.

Head On Collisions

Thankfully, head on collisions make up only a slight percent of traffic collisions. Head-on crashes occur more frequently in remote areas than urban areas, making up 13 percent of all rural fatal collisions, while only comprising 7% of lethal accidents in metropolitan areas. (NHTSA)Due to the severity of most head-on accidents, EMTs and/or an ambulance is almost always dispatched to the location of the auto accident, which results in potentially significant medical bills in combination with the legal, property damage, and damage to the motor vehicles involved. Needless to say, these types of car accidents can transform the focus of one's personal life physically, emotionally, and fiscally. You need a supporter; someone who knows legal techniques and who will battle for you and your family. If you are involved in a head-on collision - or any accident for that matter - you need to call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890 for a no obligation consultation. Our staff of lawyers has collected millions of dollars in settlements for our clientele in the Westmont, CA community, we can help do the same for you, your loved ones, family, or friends.

Highway Car Accidents

High speed accidents are horrific. Due to the laws of physics, the more quickly you (or the opposing vehicle) is moving, the higher the possibility for the loss of vehicular control, damages, and/or bodily trauma when your vehicles collide. Even a tiny "tap" at high speed can lead to a catastrophic consequence if it causes you to lose control of your car or truck. The extent of accidents on the freeway - and their significantly greater associated speeds - lead to more serious collisions and subsequently more extensive damage and claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved in a highway (or any) accident in the Westmont, 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 complimentary and carries no obligation, and you won't pay us anything unless we win your case and you receive a settlement.Fatalities and potentially terminal injuries are often the result of freeway accidents. Once again, due to the above average speeds and natural forces involved, the harm to vehicles and people is normally more significant than a "fender bender" in a residential neighborhood. The possible intensity of freeway accidents goes up when you take into account all of the large commercial transport trucks, commercial vehicles, semis, and tractor-trailers that seem to command the freeways. Due to their mass and lack of maneuverability, heavier vehicles cannot stop as rapidly or make tight turns without risking rollover. This issue is compounded at the more substantial speeds of highway traffic.Motorcycles are also problematic because they have 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, another passenger vehicle, or a truck, highway crashes are frequently disastrous, and you need assistance if you are to recuperate from the physical, financial, psychological, and emotional consequences of your involvement. Contact us today at (877) 278-6890.

Accidents Due to Weather Conditions

According to a 2019 study performed by the Federal Highway Administration, about 21% of motor vehicle crashes are weather related.

  • 70% of weather related crashes occur on wet pavement
  • 46% during rainfall
  • 18% during snow or sleet
  • 16% on snowy or slushy pavement
  • 13% on icy pavement
  • 3% in fog

The Weather Channel reported in 2018 that weather-related vehicle traffic accidents kill more individuals every year than large-scale weather disasters. (The Weather Channel, 2018)Without a doubt, weather is a factor in car accidents, and you need someone who is there for you - rain or shine - and proficient in dealing with all types of traffic accidents. Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC has been helping Westmont, CA area citizens mitigate all sorts of compensation claims due to traffic accidents for years.

It stands to reason that the worse the weather, the more likely there will be effects on the road. According to Carsurance.net there are about 156,000 accidents annually due to icy roads. Undoubtedly a contributing variable is that it will take ten times longer to stop on snow and ice than it will on dry pavement (GEICO Insurance, 2018). If you are comfortable with pleasant weather like we have in Westmont, CA most of the year but you and/or your family are required to drive in ice, snow, fog, or sleet, you may run into conditions that result in an accident.
