Rollovers commonly occur as a result of the higher center of gravity in particular vehicles, particularly 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 be deprived of contact with the road and the vehicle to flip. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be tremendously dangerous. A total of 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants perished in rollover accidents in 2016. 28% of these didn't involve any other collision. (IIHS, 2018)As the acceptance of SUVs increases, so does the percentage of SUV-related traffic collisions. Unfortunately, the fatality rates involving SUVs is much higher than that 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 design and style of SUVs are such that they have a higher center of gravity than ordinary passenger cars and therefore are more prone 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 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 accidents: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes commonly occur when 2 (or more) cars or trucks are traveling 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 problems and complications that cannot instantly be spotted but could render the car or truck unsafe. Other times the damage is so substantial that the car is not operational and could be a total loss. Either way, our attorneys will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance providers and any legal obstacles that may arise.The other kind of side impact collision is the "T-bone" and can have much more dangerous results. T-bone collisions happen when the front of one vehicle hits the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone accidents are almost always much worse than sideswipes because the momentum 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 effect of a T-bone collision often results in severe injuries to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in somebody's loss of life or permanent disability.

Head On Collisions
Thankfully, head on collisions make up only a small percentage of traffic accidents. Head-on collisions occur more frequently in outlying locations than metropolitan areas, accounting for 13% of all rural lethal accidents, while only comprising 7% of fatal accidents in metropolitan areas. (NHTSA)Due to the severity of most head-on crashes, EMTs and/or an ambulance is nearly always dispatched to the scene of the automobile accident, bringing about potentially substantial medical expenses as well as the legal, property damage, and damage to the vehicles involved. Not surprisingly, these types of accidents can alter the focus of one's life time physically, psychologically, and fiscally. You need a proponent; someone who understands legal techniques and who will battle for you.

High-speed accidents are horrific. Because of the laws of physics, the faster you (or the opposing car) is traveling, the greater the opportunity for loss of vehicle control, damages, and/or personal injury when your vehicles collide. Even a minor "tap" at high speed can give rise to a disastrous outcome if it causes you to lose control of your car or truck. The degree of auto accidents on the interstate - and their significantly greater accompanying speeds - lead to more severe crashes and subsequently more extensive damage and compensation claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved with a highway (or any) accident in the Dove Canyon, CA area, you should call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC.

Once again, due to the high speeds and actual physical forces involved, the harm to vehicles and people is typically greater than a "fender bender" on a residential street. The potential intensity of interstate accidents goes up when you take into account all of the large trucks, commercial vehicles, 18 wheelers, and tractor-trailers that seem to command the freeways. Due to their body mass and lack of maneuverability, larger vehicles can't stop as easily or make tight turns without the risk of rollover. This problem is compounded at the higher rates of interstate traffic.Motorcycles are also problematic because they possess a tendency to "open up" their throttles when they get on the freeway, and they can seemingly appear from nowhere.Despite whether it involves a motorcycle, another passenger vehicle, or a truck, interstate crashes are oftentimes catastrophic, and you need help and support if you are to recuperate from the physical, psychological, emotional, and financial effects of your involvement.
