Frequently Asked Questions

Facing normal everyday life can be drastically affected as a result of your injuries. If you have any questions not covered here, please call our office. We will be happy to help you.

Am I Entitled to Emergency Hospital Procedures in California If I Do Not Have Medical Care Insurance Coverage?

Am I Entitled to Emergency Hospital Procedures in California If I Do Not Have Medical Care Insurance Coverage?

The simple answer is Yes. Federal government policy mandates that medical centers are required to provide emergency treatment to help stabilize the medical condition of any patient seriously injured in a motor vehicle crash. If you do not have insurance protection, however, you will be billed personally by the professional medical providers for any services utilized.Several insurance companies have negotiated discount rates with health care service providers to supply services at a discounted price, but if you do not have insurance you will not receive these reductions or legally-mandated reductions for Medicare or Medi-Cal charges; you may very well be billed for the full amounts due and sued if you don't pay.

My Medical Charges Are Escalating, What Should I Do?

My Medical Charges Are Escalating, What Should I Do?

Call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC to find out if there is support readily available. If you have a personal medical plan, Medicare, Medi-Cal, Covered California, or ObamaCare, your insurance provider should be invoiced for your medical related obligations, but you still could be responsible for satisfying an insurance deductible amount of money and for any copayments in your medical care insurance.You might also have health coverage that are part of your auto insurance policy, call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC to better understand your options and to ensure that you get every bit of the money you deserve.

Is the Person Who Crashed Into Me Lawfully Responsible for My Doctor Expenses?

Is the Person Who Crashed Into Me Lawfully Responsible for My Doctor Expenses?

They may be responsible for all, a portion, or none of your medical 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 fault. So, if the vehicle accident is determined to be 100% the fault of a second person, you ought to recover 100 percent of the damages. If, however, you are determined to be at fault in any way, your reimbursement will be lessened by the proportionate percentage.For example, if you were hit by a motor vehicle (they were at fault) but you were not wearing a seatbelt (as required under California Vehicle Code Section 27363), and injuries you sustained were 30% caused by your seatbelt infraction, your payment may be reduced by 30%. Call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC to discuss your legal and medical choices.

What is Responsible For My Neck And Back Pain After My Car Wreck?

What is Responsible For My Neck And Back Pain After My Car Wreck?

Car accidents occur when forces collide. A number of of those factors may be moving or stationary, but when forces meet, physics happens. Newton's First Law of Motion states an object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. This law pertains to you, your car or truck, and anything your vehicle hits (or is hit by).Even if you may be wearing your seat belt, you are not part of your vehicle. When an opposing force causes your car to move in a different direction than your entire body is traveling, traumas occur. For example:

  • your body is motionless at a stop sign and your car gets smashed from behind
  • your body is traveling forward and your car or truck gets hit from the side
  • your body is moving forward and your car hits an immovable object

the forces that your body goes through are amplified by the change in your momentum and direction of travel, and physical injury can easily result. Unsurprisingly, many of the injuries you may possibly sustain will not likely become obvious until long after the original trauma. Consequently, you should seek the help of an accident law firm like Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC immediately after you are included in an vehicle collision. You might have experienced lasting trauma that may not be apparent, and Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC will make sure you get checked out and follow the most effective steps to ensure your well-being and the viability of any liability insurance claim that could possibly occur from the car wreck.

I got in an Accident While Carrying out Work for My Employer, What Should I Do?

I got in an Accident While Carrying out Work for My Employer, What Should I Do?

Plenty of businesses and companies demand their workforce to drive a car as an important part of their day-to-day work duties. Salespeople, shuttle drivers, bus drivers, truck drivers, delivery drivers, home health aides, and delivery drivers are always traveling for their jobs. If you are involved in a vehicle collision while operating while on the clock you are entitled to register a workman's compensation claim with your company. Typically, your commute to and from the office are not eligible for workers’ compensation claims, but there are exceptions, and Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC knows what those are. If, for instance, your corporation requires that you supply your own car or truck for your job, your commute may be eligible. Also, if you are hurt in the operation of engaging in a common practice with your employment (running to the bank to make a business deposit, going to get food or snacks for your office or co-workers, etc.), you might also be eligible. The skilled team of attorneys at Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC will be sure to answer your questions and concerns when you arrange your free, no obligation, assessment.

More Information on Auto Accident Injuries

Accidents Involving Seniors

As mentioned in an investigation done by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in 2017, 18% of all traffic deaths in 2016 were people 65 years of age and older. A 2019 study from AAA (The Automobile Association of America) reported that per mile traveled, deadly crash rates escalate beginning at age 75 and rise sharply after age 80. And while they concluded that this is largely due to an increased risk of injury and medical problems, not an increased risk of crashes, if they are behind the wheel of the other car you may be at a greater risk. If you or a family member in the El Sereno, CA area have been in an accident involving a senior citizen, or if you are a Senior driver and have been in an accident, contact Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC for a free assessment and to look at your possible remedies.It is well recognized that as we grow older we begin to lose many of our effectiveness. Our hearing can decrease, as can our eye-sight, energy level, cognitive ability, and response time. The failure - or slowed ability - to respond to a risk or dangerous scenario can be the difference between preventing an accident completely or becoming part of the accident studies. With the advent of enhanced medical technology and diet, people are living for a longer period and have more active daily routines. Subsequently, there are more senior vehicle operators on the road, and consequently there are more accidents involving elderly drivers. According to Consumer Reports, in 2017 over 3.5 million Americans 85 and older held a driver's license. If you or a family member in the El Sereno, CA area have been in an accident involving a senior citizen, or if you are over 65 and have been in an accident, contact Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC for a free appointment and to go over your possible solutions.

Failure to Yield Accidents

Drivers all over the El Sereno, CA area "fail to yield" on a day to day basis, resulting in numerous accidents. "Failure to yield" is precisely what it appears to be: someone fails to yield the right of way to someone else, resulting in an accident.Failure to yield accidents are quite common in El Sereno, CA and frequently occur at intersections, with an excessive amount of accidents as a result of illegal left-hand turns. Failure to yield accidents also quite often occur at flashing red lights when a vehicle fails to come to a complete stop, flashing yellow lights, and when drivers vigorously merge onto freeways and/or when lanes merge.While failure to yield accidents are typically more minor, they may still result in property damage and personal injuries, which may lead to loss of revenue because of lost time at a job and disability. We've seen our share of failure to yield cases at Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC and have lots of expertise trying these cases. Allow us to represent you if you need an attorney who will fight for your legal rights to the fullest extent of the law. Call (877) 278-6890 today.

Driving While Texting Accidents

Texting behind the wheel of a moving vehicle is the worst feasible thing you can do, and is not only dangerous, it is quite prevalent. A 2019 Driver Knowledge study determined that 1 out of every 3 people text while driving, even though texting while driving increases the possibility of crashing a startling 23 times. And while 47 out of 50 states have banished texting while driving, it still happens, and it still generates accidents on a consistent basis. If you or a loved one or family member have been in a traffic accident while texting, or while the other driver was texting, you most definitely need to contact us. Our notoriety for helping El Sereno, CA area drivers is exceptional, and with the severe nature of this infraction you need a legal team who is not only savvy with texting while driving accidents, but more importantly, their litigation.

Motorcycle Accidents

In 2018, 8.02% of US households owned motorcycles. (Motorcycle Industry Council, 2019)Even though motorcycles account for only 0.6% of all motor vehicle miles traveled, riders make up 14% of all traffic deaths and 17% of all occupant (driver and passenger) deaths, (NHTSA, 2019) and while 20% of passenger vehicle crashes lead to injury or loss of life, 80% of motorcycle accidents bring about personal injury or death. Also, motorcyclist deaths were more likely to occur in cities than in outlying areas (60% vs. 38%).

Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents

Accidents involving pedestrians and bicyclists can be even more complicated than vehicle-to-vehicle accidents because the other party may or may not have insurance.Cyclists endure quite a few of the very same concerns as motorcyclists, but at reduced speeds. They are usually not as visible as cars and/or trucks, they aren't as secure on 2 tires as a car is on 4 tires, and a collision involving a bicycle has a very high percent probability of leading to physical damage. 81% of pedestrian fatalities in 2018 occurred in urban locations, and 40% of pedestrian deaths involving people 70+ in 2018 occurred at intersections, in comparison to 22% for those younger than Age 70. (IIHS, 2019).If you were in any sort of accident involving a bike, a jogger, or a motorcycle you are going to require a capable legal professional. You need Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC. Call us at (877) 278-6890 today.

Teenage and Inexperienced Driver Accidents

As you can most likely imagine, the more practice a person gets driving, the more self-assured they become and the better driver they end up. Sadly, teenage and new drivers must "practice" on the roads with the remainder of us, and they often have a lot to learn! A 2019 Texas A&M Transportation Institute study determined that Teens are much more likely to violate the speed limit and follow at unsafe distances than older drivers. That same report found that Teens normally do not consider driving at 5 to 10 mph above the speed limit to be hazardous.The NHTSA found that drivers ages 15-20 had the greatest representation in speed related fatalities (32% and 22%) compared to any other age group in 2016, and that driving too fast was a consideration in 31% of Teen driver fatalities. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) found that per mile driven, teen drivers ages 16 to 19 are practically 3 x more likely to be involved in a fatal accident than drivers aged 20+, and that car crashes are the leading cause of loss of life for US teenagers.Granted, no one begins as an excellent driver; all of us needed practice, and several of us are continuing to learn! But Teens who don't have experience are obviously more inclined to getting into car accidents. Despite all of the data demonstrating that teenage drivers can make a lot of mediocre judgments, the fact is that they are driving on the road with us, and their activity affects you and your loved ones.If you have been involved with a traffic accident which involves a teen or new/unskilled driver, you need to call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC so that we can support you throughout the legal process. There are a number of new drivers hitting the roadways in and around El Sereno, CA on a daily basis, and until they get the experience they need, they are a hazard to all of us.

We will address your concerns about current and extended term healthcare bills, loss of income, emotional, and physical pain and suffering that will subsequently occur, and the opportunities for a law suit to help you get on with your life.

Emergency Vehicle Accidents

Sadly, people responding to auto accidents are also subject to accidents of their own. In 2018, 168 people died in crashes involving emergency vehicles. The great majority of these fatalities were occupants of non-emergency vehicles (56%); deaths among pedestrians, emergency vehicle drivers, and emergency vehicle passengers each amounted to about 13% to 14% of the fatalities. When most people are attempting to get somewhere fast, crashes can occur. If you or a loved one were wounded in an accident involving an ambulance, police car, firetruck, or other emergency vehicle, our law firm, Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC can help you. Call (877) 278-6890 today to set up your initial consultation.

Commercial Vehicle Accidents

There are also other cars and trucks that respond to the location of traffic accidents; tow trucks for example. While you may think of tow trucks as the people who make an appearance to help clear away the aftermath of an accident or assist an disabled vehicle, accidents involving tow trucks occur more frequently than you would imagine, and can be the source of significant damage to vehicles, not to mention severe accidental injury to people. Like large over-the-road commercial transport trucks (semi-trucks, 18 wheelers, etc.) tow trucks are massive, bulky, quite heavy and not very maneuverable. Their size and diminished mobility contribute to the damage they can do, and when you put a towed-vehicle into the situation you elevate the danger of accidents even further.Department of Transportation cars and trucks and other service vehicles (tow trucks, electric power company vehicles, highway repairs and maintenance trucks, etc.) are all over the place, and yet we tend not to notice them as much because we are so used to seeing them. The fact is, however, that they are large, mobile, and can present dangers on the roadways.You should call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC right away at (877) 278-6890 if you are involved in a collision with a commercial vehicle. Commercial vehicles typically have large organizations and/or corporations behind them, and those companies/corporations have seemingly unlimited resources that they might use to their full advantage.
