Rollovers generally occur due to the higher center of gravity in certain vehicles, specifically 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 road and the vehicle to flip. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be exceedingly dangerous. A total of 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants died in rollover accidents in 2016. 28% of the accidents didn't involve any other impact. (IIHS, 2018)As the acceptance 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 dropped 46% since 1975, SUV occupant deaths have risen ten-fold.The physical design of SUVs are such that they have a higher center of gravity than ordinary passenger cars and therefore are more susceptible to rollovers. Since the roofing system of most vehicles is not designed to support the body weight of the vehicle, 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 common 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 collisions: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes usually 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 extensive damage to both vehicles, including structural concerns and complications that cannot immediately be spotted but could make the car or truck quite unsafe. Other times the damage is so significant that the car is not drivable and could be a complete loss. In either event, our attorneys will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance companies and any legal complications that may arise.The other kind of side impact accident is the "T-bone" and can have much more fatal results. T-bone collisions occur when the front of one vehicle hits the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone traffic accidents are almost always more serious than sideswipes because the momentum in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" while a T-bone transmits all of the energy and momentum from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The power of a T-bone accident often results in significant injuries to the passengers of both vehicles, and can often result in someone's loss of life or permanent disability.

Thankfully, head-on collisions make up only a small percentage of driving collisions. Head-on collisions occur most often in non-urban areas than metropolitan areas, making up 13 percent of all rural lethal collisions, while only comprising 7 percent of lethal collisions in urban areas. (NHTSA)Due to the severity of virtually all head-on crashes, EMTs and/or an ambulance is nearly always dispatched to the scene of the vehicle accident, bringing about extensive medical expenses along with the legal, property damage, and damage to the cars involved. Not surprisingly, these types of catastrophes can alter the course of one's everyday life physically, emotionally, and fiscally. You need a proponent; someone who understands legal strategy and who will battle for you and your loved ones.

High speed accidents are horrifying. Owing to the laws of physics, the faster you (or the opposing car) is traveling, the more substantial the opportunity for loss of vehicle control, damages, and/or personal trauma when your vehicles collide. Even a little "tap" at high speeds can lead to a catastrophic outcome if it makes you lose control of your vehicle. The severity of accidents on the interstate - and their greater speeds - lead to more serious collisions and consequently more substantial damage and insurance claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved in a highway (or any) accident in the Ladera Heights, 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 complimentary and carries no obligation, and you won't pay us anything unless we win your case and you receive a settlement.Fatalities and life-threatening trauma are often the result of highway accidents. Once again, due to the higher than average speeds and physical forces involved, the damage to people and vehicles is normally more significant than a "fender bender" on a residential street. The potential severity of highway accidents goes up when you take into account all of the large trucks, commercial vehicles, semis, and tractor-trailers that seem to command the freeways. Due to their mass and lack of maneuverability, heavier trucks cannot stop as quickly or make tight turns without the risk of rollover. This condition is compounded at the greater speeds of freeway traffic.Motorcycles are also a problem because they tend to "open up" their throttles when they get on the freeway, and they can seemingly appear from nowhere.No matter whether it involves another passenger vehicle, a motorcycle, or a truck, interstate catastrophes are oftentimes disastrous, and you need help if you are to recuperate from the physical, financial, emotional, and psychological side effects of your involvement.

They may be accountable for all, a portion, or none of your medical-related bills. Since California is a Comparative fault state, you are allowed to receive reasonable and customary medical expenses, but you are only qualified to receive the portion that is not your responsibility. So, if the car accident is determined to be 100% the fault of a second party, you ought to recover 100% of the damages.
