Accidents Involving Seniors
As outlined by research done by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in 2017, 18% of all traffic deaths in 2016 were among 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 starting at age 75 and increase sharply after age 80. And while they came to the conclusion that this is principally due to an increased risk of personal injury and medical complications, not an increased risk of crashes, if they are driving the other car you may be at a increased risk. If you or a family member in the Fairview, 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 appointment and to go over your potential remedies.It is widely 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 reflexes. The failure - or slowed ability - to react to a threat or high risk situation can be the difference between preventing an accident entirely or becoming part of the accident data. With the development of enhanced medical innovation and the proper nutrition, people are living for a longer period and have more active life styles. As a result, there are more elderly drivers on the road, and thereby 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 Fairview, 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 go over your possible remedies.

Driving While Texting Accidents
Texting driving is the worst feasible thing you can do, and is not only risky, it is quite commonplace. A 2019 Driver Knowledge study determined that 1 out of every 3 people text while driving, even though texting while driving enhances the chances of crashing a startling 23 times. And while 47 out of 50 states have prohibited texting while driving, it still takes place, and it still results in accidents on a regular basis.

In 2018, 8.02% of US households owned motorcycles. (Motorcycle Industry Council, 2019)Although motorcycles are responsible for only 0.6% of all vehicle miles traveled, riders make up 14% of all traffic fatalities and 17% of all occupant (driver and passenger) fatalities, (NHTSA, 2019) and while 20% of passenger vehicle crashes result in injury or dying, 80% of motorcycle crashes end in injury or death. Also, motorcyclist fatalities were much more apt to happen in urban than in agricultural areas (60% vs. 38%).

Bicycle and Pedestrian 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 encounter several of the same challenges as motorcyclists, but at lower speeds. Bicycles are usually not as apparent as cars and/or trucks, they aren't as secure on only two wheels as a car is on four wheels, and any sort of accident involving a bicycle has a high percent probability of leading to physical trauma. 81% of pedestrian deaths in 2018 took place in urban environments, and 40% of pedestrian fatalities involving men and women 70+ in 2018 happened at intersections, compared to 22% for those younger than 70. (IIHS, 2019).If you were in any sort of accident involving a bicycle, a jogger, or a motorcycle you are likely to want a seasoned attorney. You need Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC.

Teenage and Inexperienced Driver Accidents
As you can probably imagine, the more training anyone gets behind the wheel, the more self-assured they grow to be and the more efficient driver they develop into. Regrettably, Teen and new drivers are required to "practice" on the road with the remainder of us, and they frequently have a lot to learn! A 2019 Texas A&M Transportation Institute study determined that Teens are more likely to speed and tailgate than seasoned drivers. That same report found that Teens normally do not consider driving at 5 to 10 mph above the speed limit to be dangerous.The NHTSA found that drivers ages 15-20 had the greatest percentage in speed related fatal crashes (32% and 22%) as opposed to any other age bracket in 2016, and that speeding was a factor in 31% of Teen driver deaths. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) found that per mile driven, teen drivers ages 16 to 19 are almost three times more likely to be in a deadly accident than drivers aged 20 and older, and that car crashes are the leading cause of death for US teenagers.Granted, no one starts as an outstanding driver; every one of us needed practice, and many of us are continuing to learn! But Teens who do not have practical experience are obviously more vulnerable to getting into car or truck crashes. Despite all of the studies demonstrating that teenage drivers can make a lot of bad choices, the hard truth is that they are driving on the road with us, and their behavior affects you and your loved ones.If you have been associated with a traffic accident connected with a teenage or new/inexperienced driver, you need to call Law Offices of John C.

Emergency Vehicle Accidents
Unfortunately, people responding to any sort of accident are also exposed to collisions of their own. In 2018, 168 people were killed in accidents involving emergency vehicles. The vast 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 deaths.

Commercial Vehicle Accidents
There are also other cars and trucks that respond to the location of car accidents; tow trucks for example. While you may well think of tow trucks as the men and women who show up to help tidy up the aftermath of an accident or assist an disabled vehicle, accidents involving tow trucks occur more often than you would anticipate, and can be the source of considerable physical damage to vehicles, not to mention severe injury to individuals. Like large over-the-road trucks (semi-trucks, 18 wheelers, etc.) tow trucks are large, bulky, quite heavy and not very agile. Their size and decrease in mobility contribute to the physical damage they can do, and when you add a towed-vehicle into the situation you elevate the chances of accidents even further.Department of Transportation cars and trucks and other support vehicles (tow trucks, electric power company trucks, road repairs and maintenance vehicles, etc.) are everywhere, and yet we normally do not notice them as much because we are so comfortable with seeing them. The fact is, however, that they are large, mobile, and can present potential risks on the roadways.You should call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC right now at (877) 278-6890 if you are involved with a vehicle accident with a commercial vehicle.
