Rollovers normally occur due to the higher center of gravity in particular vehicles, specifically 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 may cause the tires to be deprived of physical contact with the ground and the vehicle to flip. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be very hazardous. A total of 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants died in rollover accidents in 2016. 28% of the accidents didn't include any other impact. (IIHS, 2018)As the acceptance of sports utility vehicles increases, so does the percentage 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 dropped 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 traditional passenger cars and therefore are more susceptible to rollovers. Since the roof structure of most vehicles is not designed to support the 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 types of side impact accidents: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes commonly occur when two (or more) vehicles 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 considerable damage to both vehicles, including structural concerns and complications that cannot immediately be observed but could make the car or truck dangerous. Other times the damage is so significant that the car or truck is not drivable and could be a complete loss. Either way, our attorneys will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance companies and any liability difficulties that may arise.The other form of side impact collision is the "T-bone" and can have much more deadly results. T-bone collisions happen when the front of one vehicle hits the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone car accidents are almost always more serious than sideswipes because the momentum in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" whereas a T-bone transmits all of the energy and momentum from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The effect of a T-bone collision often results in drastic trauma to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in someone's loss of life or permanent impairment.

Head On Accidents
Thankfully, head-on collisions make up only a tiny percentage of traffic crashes. Head-on crashes take place most often in rural areas than metropolitan areas, making up 13% of all rural lethal accidents, while only comprising 7 percent of deadly collisions in urban areas. (NHTSA)Due to the intensity of most head-on collisions, EMTs and/or an ambulance is nearly always dispatched to the location of the automobile accident, which results in potentially substantial medical charges not to mention the legal, property damage, and damage to the cars involved. Essentially, these types of car accidents can change the focus of one's everyday living physically, emotionally, and financially. You need a proponent; someone who understands legal strategy and who will fight for you and your family.

Freeway Car Accidents
High-speed accidents are horrifying. As a result of the laws of physics, the more quickly you (or the opposing car) is going, the more substantial the possibility for loss of vehicle control, damage, and/or personal injury when your vehicles collide. Even a minor "bump" at high speeds can contribute to a disastrous result if it makes you lose control of your car or truck. The seriousness of crashes on the interstate - and their significantly greater associated speeds - lead to more severe crashes and subsequently greater damage and claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved with a freeway (or any) accident in the Commerce, 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 absolutely free and carries no obligation, and you won't pay us anything unless we win your case and you receive a settlement.Fatalities and potentially fatal injuries are often the outcome of interstate accidents. Once again, due to the significant speeds and actual physical forces involved, the harm to vehicles and people is normally more significant than a "fender bender" on a residential street. The possible intensity of highway accidents multiplies when you take into account all of the large commercial transport trucks, commercial vehicles, 18 wheelers, and tractor-trailers that seem to dominate the highways. Due to their weight and lack of maneuverability, heavier vehicles can't stop as readily or make tight turns without the risk of rollover. This condition is compounded at the higher rates of highway traffic.Motorcycles are also a challenge because they have the tendency to "open up" their throttles when they get on the interstate, and they can seemingly appear from nowhere.Regardless of whether it involves a truck, another passenger vehicle, or a motorcycle, highway crashes are frequently catastrophic, and you need help if you are to recover from the physical, emotional, psychological, and financial side effects 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 automotive vehicle crashes are weather related.
- 70% of weather-related accidents 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 accidents kill more individuals annually than large scale weather disasters.

It stands to reason that the worse the weather is, the more likely there will be consequences on the road. According to Carsurance.net there are about 156,000 accidents annually due to icy roads. Certainly a contributing variable is that it requires ten times longer to stop on snow and ice than it will on dry pavement (GEICO Insurance, 2018).

Unquestionably. For that matter, you should never speak with a claims adjuster until after you have already spoken to legal counsel. Claims adjusters are working for the insurance provider, they don't represent you. It is their purpose to save their organization's money, and they can’t do that if they voluntarily present you with the maximum settlement, so they will certainly 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 medical-related costs. Since California is a Comparative fault state, you are allowed to receive reasonable and customary healthcare costs, but you are only eligible for the proportion that is not your fault. So, if the accident is determined to be 100% the fault of a different person, you should recover one hundred percent of the damages. If, however, you are found to be to blame in any way, your settlement will be discounted by the corresponding percentage.For example, if you were struck by a car (they were at fault) but you were not wearing a seatbelt (as required under California Vehicle Code Section 27363), and injuries you received were 30% as a result of your seatbelt violation, your settlement may be reduced by 30%.
