Distracted Driving Accidents
It is quite challenging to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car disruptions (your children, music, cellular devices, cats and dogs, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the view, traffic, other vehicles, billboards, wildlife, etc.), distractions occur.Regrettably, being distracted while driving is one of the most dangerous 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 take your eyes away from the road is dangerous. In the Jurupa Valley, CA area there are plenty of distractions, and if one of them leads to you getting in a collision, you know who to call: Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890.
Roll Over Accidents
Rollovers commonly occur as a result of the higher center of gravity in specific vehicles, especially 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 suddenly shifts. This shift often causes the tires to suffer a loss of physical contact with the ground and the vehicle to flip. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be tremendously dangerous. A combined 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants died in rollover crashes in 2016. 28% of the accidents didn't involve any other collision. (IIHS, 2018)As the level of popularity of sports utility vehicles increases, so does the percentage of SUV-related traffic accidents. 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 passenger 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 construction of SUVs are such that they have a higher center of gravity than typical passenger cars and therefore are more prone to rollovers. Since the roofing system of most vehicles is not designed to support the weight of the vehicle, the impact sustained in a rollover can crush the roof and cause massive and catastrophic injuries to the passengers in the vehicle.Rollover 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 crashes: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes typically occur when 2 (or more) vehicles 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 issues and complications that cannot instantly be spotted but could render the car or truck dangerous. Other times the dent or damage is so severe that the car or truck is not operational and could be a complete loss. Either way, our legal team will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance companies and any liability 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 strikes the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone auto accidents are almost always much worse than sideswipes because the energy in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" whereas a T-bone transfers all of the energy and force from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The impact of a T-bone accident often brings about extreme injuries to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in someone's death or permanent disability.

Thankfully, frontal crashes make up only a slight percent of traffic collisions. Head-on accidents occur far more frequently in remote areas than metropolitan areas, accounting for 13% of all non-urban deadly collisions, while only comprising 7 percent of fatal collisions in metropolitan areas. (NHTSA)Due to the extent of most head-on collisions, an ambulance and/or EMTs are nearly always dispatched to the scene of the automobile accident, which results in extensive health related costs in addition to the liability, property damage, and damage to the motor vehicles involved. Not surprisingly, these types of collisions can transform the focus of one's lifespan physically, emotionally, and economically. You need an advocate; someone who understands legal techniques and who will fight for you and your loved ones. If you are associated with a head-on collision - or any motor vehicle 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.

High speed accidents are terrifying. As a result of the laws of physics, the more quickly you (or the opposing vehicle) is traveling, the more substantial the chance for loss of vehicular control, damage, and/or personal injury when your vehicles collide. Even a slight "bump" at high speeds can give rise to a catastrophic outcome if it makes you lose control of your vehicle. The extent of accidents on the interstate - and their higher accompanying speeds - lead to more substantial collisions and subsequently higher damage and claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved in a freeway (or any) accident in the Jurupa Valley, 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 appointment is absolutely free and carries no obligation, and you won't pay us anything unless we win your case and you receive a settlement.Death and potentially terminal trauma are often the direct result of highway accidents. Once again, due to the higher than average speeds and natural forces involved, the damage to people and vehicles is frequently more significant than a "fender bender" in a residential district. The possible extent of highway accidents increases when you take into account all of the large commercial transport trucks, commercial vehicles, semitrailers, and tractor-trailers that seem to dominate the highways. Due to their weight and lack of maneuverability, larger trucks can't stop as easily or make tight turns without risking rollover. This condition is compounded at the more significant rates of speed of interstate traffic.Motorcycles are also a challenge because they have been found to "open up" their throttles when they get on the interstate, and they can seemingly appear from thin air.Despite whether it involves a truck, a motorcycle, or another passenger vehicle, interstate catastrophes are often disastrous, and you need assistance if you are to recuperate from the physical, psychological, emotional, and financial side effects of your involvement.

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%.
