Rollovers typically occur as a consequence of the higher center of gravity in certain vehicles, primarily 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 shifts suddenly. This shift often causes the tires to be deprived of contact with the ground and the vehicle to flip. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be incredibly hazardous. A total of 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants were killed in rollover accidents in 2016. 28% of these did not involve any other impact. (IIHS, 2018)As the popularity of sports utility vehicles increases, so does the proportion of SUV-related traffic accidents. 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 construction of SUVs are such that they have a higher center of gravity than regular passenger cars and therefore are more prone to rollovers. Since the roof structure 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 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 kinds of side impact accidents: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes typically occur when 2 (or more) cars or trucks 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 concerns and complications that cannot immediately be observed but could make the car or truck quite unsafe. Other times the dent or damage is so significant that the car is not drivable and could be a complete loss. Either way, our attorneys will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance providers 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 take place when the front of one vehicle strikes the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone collisions are almost always much worse than sideswipes because the energy in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" while 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 can cause severe trauma to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in somebody's loss of life or permanent impairment.

Thankfully, frontal accidents make up only a slight percentage of automobile collisions. Head-on accidents take place far more often in remote locations than metropolitan areas, making up 13 percent of all rural deadly collisions, while only comprising 7% of deadly collisions in metropolitan areas. (NHTSA)Due to the intensity of the majority of head-on accidents, an ambulance and/or EMTs are almost always dispatched to the scene of the crash, resulting in potentially extensive medical related fees as well as the liability, property damage, and damage to the motor vehicles involved. Needless to say, these types of collisions can change the course of one's lifespan physically, psychologically, and economically. You need a proponent; someone who knows legal process and who will fight for you and your loved ones. If you are associated with a head-on collision - or any auto accident for that matter - you will want to call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890 for a no-cost consultation.

Interstate Auto Accidents
High-speed collisions are terrifying. Due to the laws of physics, the quicker you (or the opposing vehicle) is moving, the more substantial the opportunity for the loss of vehicular control, damage, and/or bodily trauma when your vehicles collide. Even a slight "tap" at high speed can lead to a disastrous outcome if it makes you lose control of your car or truck. The degree of collisions on the freeway - and their higher than average associated speeds - lead to more major crashes and therefore more extensive damage and compensation claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are associated with an interstate (or any) accident in the Cowan Heights, 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 100 % 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 potentially terminal trauma are often the outcome of interstate accidents. Once again, due to the significant speeds and actual physical forces involved, the harm to people and vehicles is generally more significant than a "fender bender" in a residential location. The possible extent of interstate accidents goes up 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 mass and lack of maneuverability, bigger trucks cannot stop as quickly or make tight turns without the risk of rollover. This issue is compounded at the more substantial speeds of freeway traffic.Motorcycles are also problematic because they be inclined to "open up" their throttles when they get on the freeway, and they can seemingly appear from nowhere.No matter whether it involves a truck, a motorcycle, or another passenger vehicle, highway collisions are usually devastating, and you need help and support 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 carried out by the Federal Highway Administration, about 21% of automotive vehicle crashes are weather related.

- 46% during rainfall
- 18% during snow or sleet
- 16% on snowy or slushy pavement
- 13% on icy pavement
- 3% in fog

Logically, the worse the weather, the more likely there will be negative effects on the road. According to Carsurance.net there are about 156,000 crashes annually due to icy roads.

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 accountable for all, a portion, or none of your medical-related bills. Since California is a Comparative fault state, you are allowed to receive reasonable and customary medical expenses, but you are only qualified to receive the portion that is not your responsibility. So, if the car accident is determined to be 100% the fault of a second party, you ought to recover 100% of the damages. If, however, you are found to be in the wrong in any way, your reimbursement will be diminished by the proportionate 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 trauma you suffered were 30% caused by your seat belt infraction, your payment may be reduced by 30%.
