Distracted Driving Accidents
It is quite difficult to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car distractions (children, music, cellular phones, dogs and cats, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the scenery, automobile traffic, other vehicles, billboards, wildlife, etc.), diversions occur.Unfortunately, being distracted while behind the wheel is one of the most treacherous 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 normally occur as a consequence 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 sharply or quickly and the vehicle's center of gravity shifts suddenly. This shift often causes the tires to be deprived of physical contact with the road and the vehicle to flip. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be exceptionally dangerous. A combined 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants were killed in rollover crashes in 2016. 28% of these did not involve any other collision. (IIHS, 2018)As the level of popularity of SUVs increases, so does the proportion of SUV-related traffic accidents. 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 decreased 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 typical passenger cars and therefore are more susceptible 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.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 varieties of side impact accidents: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes commonly occur when 2 (or more) automobiles 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 considerable damage to both vehicles, including structural issues and complications that cannot immediately be observed but could render the car or truck unsafe. Other times the dent or damage is so severe that the car 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 companies and any legal obstacles that may arise.The other type of side impact collision is the "T-bone" and can have much more dangerous 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 energy in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" whereas 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 results in significant trauma to the passengers of both vehicles, and can often result in someone's death or permanent disability.

Head On Accidents
Thankfully, head on accidents make up only a tiny percentage of vehicle collisions. Head-on crashes happen far more frequently in remote locations than metropolitan areas, making up 13 percent of all rural deadly crashes, while only comprising 7% of deadly crashes in urban areas. (NHTSA)Due to the nature of the majority of head-on crashes, an ambulance and/or EMTs are almost always dispatched to the location of the vehicle accident, bringing about potentially substantial medical costs as well as the liability, property damage, and damage to the automobiles involved. Essentially, these types of catastrophes can transform the focus of one's daily life physically, emotionally, and economically. You need an ally; someone who knows legal procedure and who will fight for you.

High-speed accidents are frightening. As a result of the laws of physics, the faster you (or the opposing car) is traveling, the higher the chance for loss of vehicular control, damages, and/or physical injury when your vehicles collide. Even a minor "tap" at high speeds can lead to a devastating result if it causes you to lose control of your car or truck. The extent of auto accidents on the interstate - and their higher associated speeds - lead to more major crashes and subsequently more substantial damage and insurance claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved in a freeway (or any) accident in the Century City, 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 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 outcome of highway accidents. Once again, due to the above average speeds and natural forces involved, the damage to people and vehicles is generally greater than a "fender bender" on a residential street. The possible seriousness of interstate accidents goes up when you take into account all of the large trucks, commercial vehicles, semitrailers, and tractor-trailers that seem to command the freeways. Due to their mass and lack of maneuverability, heavier vehicles can't stop as rapidly or make tight turns without risking rollover. This condition is compounded at the more substantial speeds of interstate traffic.Motorcycles are also a challenge because they have the tendency to "open up" their throttles when they get on the highway, and they can seemingly appear from nowhere.Regardless of whether it involves a motorcycle, another passenger vehicle, or a truck, highway traffic accidents are often devastating, and you need assistance if you are to recuperate from the physical, psychological, emotional, and financial side effects of your involvement. Contact us today at (877) 278-6890.

Definitely. In fact, you should never consult with a claims adjuster until after you have spoken to legal counsel. Claims adjusters work for the insurance carrier, they do not work for you. It is their obligation to protect their organization's cash, and they cannot accomplish that if they voluntarily present you with the highest settlement, so they are going to offer you less. Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC will get you more.
