Distracted Driving Accidents
It is really difficult to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car distractions (kids, music, cellular phones, animals, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the view, traffic, other vehicles, billboards, wildlife, etc.), distractions occur.Unfortunately, being distracted while driving a vehicle 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 focus away from the road is dangerous.

Rollovers normally occur because 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 sharply or quickly and the vehicle's center of gravity suddenly shifts. This shift often causes the tires to be deprived of physical contact with the ground and the vehicle to flip. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be extremely harmful. A total of 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants died in rollover crashes in 2016. 28% of the accidents did not involve any other collision. (IIHS, 2018)As the acceptance of SUVs increases, so does the percentage of SUV-related traffic collisions. Unfortunately, the death rates involving SUVs is much higher than that 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 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 typical passenger cars and therefore are more susceptible to rollovers. Since the roofing system of most vehicles is not designed to support the weight of the car, the impact sustained in a rollover can crush the roof and cause massive and catastrophic injuries to the passengers inside the vehicle.Rollover accidents are also commonplace 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 significant damage to both vehicles, including structural issues and complications that cannot instantly be spotted but could render the car or truck quite unsafe. Other times the dent or damage is so significant that the car is not operational and could be a total loss. In either event, our attorneys will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance companies and any legal situations that may arise.The other type of side impact collision is the "T-bone" and can have much more lethal 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 much worse than sideswipes because the momentum in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" while a T-bone transfers all of the power and momentum from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The power of a T-bone accident often brings about considerable trauma to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in someone's death or permanent disability.

Head On Crashes
Thankfully, head-on accidents make up only a small percent of vehicle collisions. Head-on crashes happen far more frequently in remote areas than urban areas, accounting for 13% of all rural fatal crashes, while only comprising 7% of lethal collisions in metropolitan areas. (NHTSA)Due to the extent of most head-on collisions, an ambulance and/or EMTs are almost always dispatched to the location of the auto accident, leading to potentially significant medical-related bills in addition to the liability, property damage, and damage to the motor vehicles involved. Not surprisingly, these types of collisions can alter the focus of one's daily lifestyle physically, emotionally, and financially. You need a supporter; someone who knows legal strategy and who will fight for you and your family. If you are associated with a head-on collision - or any 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.

Freeway Vehicle Accidents
High-speed crashes are horrific. Because of the laws of physics, the more rapidly you (or the opposing car) is moving, the better the possibility for the loss of vehicular control, damage, and/or bodily injury when your vehicles collide. Even a small "tap" at high speeds can give rise to a disastrous consequence if it causes you to lose control of your vehicle. The seriousness of collisions on the highway - and their greater speeds - lead to more serious crashes and therefore more extensive damage and claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved in a highway (or any) accident in the East Los Angeles, 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 free of charge and carries no obligation, and you won't pay us anything unless we win your case and you receive a settlement.Death and life threatening injuries are often the outcome of highway accidents. Once again, due to the higher speeds and actual physical forces involved, the damage to people and vehicles is almost always greater than a "fender bender" in a residential district. The potential seriousness of freeway accidents increases when you take into account all of the large commercial transport trucks, commercial vehicles, semitrailers, and tractor-trailers that seem to take over the freeways. Due to their body mass and lack of maneuverability, larger trucks cannot stop as readily or make tight turns without the risk of rollover. This condition is compounded at the more substantial speeds of highway traffic.Motorcycles are also a problem because they frequently "open up" their throttles when they get on the highway, and they can seemingly appear from nowhere.Regardless of whether it involves another passenger vehicle, a motorcycle, or a truck, freeway catastrophes are frequently disastrous, and you need assistance if you are to recover from the physical, psychological, emotional, and financial side effects of your involvement.

Accidents Due to Weather Conditions
According to a 2019 report done by the Federal Highway Administration, about 21% of motor vehicle accidents are weather related.

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

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%.
