Distracted Driving Accidents
It is really difficult to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car distractions (young children, music, cellular devices, dogs and cats, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the scenery, vehicle traffic, other vehicles, billboards, wildlife, etc.), distractions occur.Regrettably, being distracted while driving 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 take your focus away from the road is dangerous.

Roll Over Incidents
Rollovers commonly occur as a result of the higher center of gravity in certain 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 shifts suddenly. 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 extraordinarily dangerous. A combined 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants died in rollover accidents in 2016. 28% of the accidents did not involve any other collision. (IIHS, 2018)As the level of popularity 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 occupant 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 conventional passenger cars and therefore are more prone to rollovers. Since the roof 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 in 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 crashes: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes typically occur when 2 (or more) automobiles 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 extensive damage to both vehicles, including structural problems and complications that cannot immediately be observed but could render the vehicle unsafe. Other times the dent or damage is so significant that the car or truck is not operational and could be a total loss. Either way, our legal team will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance carriers and any liability difficulties that may arise.The other type of side impact collision is the "T-bone" and can have much more life threatening results. T-bone collisions come about when the front of one vehicle strikes the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone collisions 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 energy and force from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The effect of a T-bone collision often brings about substantial trauma to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in someone's death or permanent impairment.

Thankfully, head-on accidents make up only a tiny percentage of vehicle accidents. Head-on collisions take place most frequently in rural locations than urban areas, accounting for 13 percent of all rural lethal crashes, while only comprising 7 percent of fatal accidents in urban areas. (NHTSA)Due to the extent of a large number of head-on collisions, EMTs and/or an ambulance is nearly always dispatched to the scene of the vehicle accident, leading to considerable medical costs not to mention the legal, property damage, and damage to the cars involved. Not surprisingly, these types of collisions can alter the focus of one's lifestyle physically, psychologically, and financially. You need a proponent; someone who knows legal procedure and who will battle for you and your loved ones.

Interstate Vehicle Accidents
High speed accidents are frightening. Because of the laws of physics, the more rapidly you (or the opposing car) is moving, the more substantial the opportunity for loss of vehicular control, damages, and/or bodily injury when your vehicles collide. Even a tiny "tap" at high speeds can contribute to a catastrophic outcome if it triggers you to lose control of your car or truck. The severity of crashes on the highway - and their significantly greater speeds - lead to more major collisions and therefore higher damage and insurance claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are associated with a freeway (or any) accident in the Costa Mesa, 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 complimentary and carries no obligation, and you won't pay us anything unless we win your case and you receive a settlement.Death and potentially terminal injuries are often the consequence of highway accidents. Once again, due to the high speeds and physical forces involved, the harm to people and vehicles is frequently more significant than a "fender bender" on a residential street. The potential extent of freeway accidents multiplies when you take into account all of the large commercial transport trucks, commercial vehicles, semitrailers, and tractor-trailers that seem to take over the highways. Due to their bulk and lack of maneuverability, heavier vehicles cannot stop as rapidly or make tight turns without the risk of rollover. This issue is compounded at the higher rates of speed of freeway traffic.Motorcycles are also a challenge because they possess a tendency to "open up" their throttles when they get on the highway, and they can seemingly appear from nowhere.No matter whether it involves a truck, a motorcycle, or another passenger vehicle, highway crashes are frequently disastrous, and you need support if you are to recover from the physical, emotional, financial, and psychological effects of your involvement. Contact us today at (877) 278-6890.
Accidents Due to Weather Conditions
According to a 2019 study conducted by the Federal Highway Administration, about 21% of automotive 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 people annually than large scale weather disasters.

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 factor is that it requires ten times longer to stop on snow and ice than it does on dry pavement (GEICO Insurance, 2018).

Definitely. For that matter, you shouldn’t communicate with a claims adjuster until after you have spoken to an attorney at law. Claims adjusters are employed by the insurance underwriter, they don't represent you. It is their duty to preserve their company's cash, and they can’t accomplish that if they voluntarily offer you the greatest settlement, so they are going to 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 healthcare expenses. Since California is a Comparative fault state, you are permitted to receive reasonable and customary medical related costs, but you are only able to receive the proportion that is not your responsibility. So, if the automobile accident is determined to be 100% the fault of a second person, you should recover one hundred percent of the damages. If, however, you are found to be to blame in any way, your reimbursement will be decreased by the proportionate amount.For example, if you were hit by a car (they were at fault) but you weren’t wearing a seatbelt (as required under California Vehicle Code Section 27363), and injuries you sustained were 30% due to your seatbelt violation, your legal claim may be reduced by 30%.
