It is quite challenging to remain 100% focused on driving.

Rollovers typically occur as a result of the higher center of gravity in specific vehicles, particularly 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 can cause the tires to be deprived of contact with the road and the vehicle to flip. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be extraordinarily harmful. A total of 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants perished in rollover accidents in 2016. 28% of these didn't include any other impact. (IIHS, 2018)As the popularity 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 conventional passenger cars and therefore are more susceptible to rollovers. Since the roof of most vehicles is not designed to support the weight of the car, the damage sustained in a rollover can crush the roof and cause massive and catastrophic injuries to the passengers in the vehicle.Roll over 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 collisions: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes usually occur when 2 (or more) cars or trucks 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 substantial damage to both vehicles, including structural concerns and complications that cannot immediately be spotted but could make the car or truck dangerous. Other times the damage is so significant that the car or truck is not drivable and could be a total loss. Either way, our legal team will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance carriers and any legal issues that may arise.The other type of side impact accident is the "T-bone" and can have much more life threatening results. T-bone collisions take place 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 energy and force from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The impact of a T-bone accident often can cause substantial trauma to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in somebody's loss of life or permanent impairment.

Thankfully, frontal crashes make up only a tiny percent of traffic collisions. Head-on collisions take place more frequently in remote locations than urban areas, making up 13% of all rural lethal accidents, while only comprising 7% of lethal accidents in urban areas. (NHTSA)Due to the nature of a large number of head-on crashes, EMTs and/or an ambulance is nearly always dispatched to the scene of the auto accident, resulting in potentially extensive healthcare charges in conjunction with the liability, property damage, and damage to the automobiles involved. Not surprisingly, these types of accidents can transform the focus of one's lifespan physically, psychologically, and economically. You need a supporter; someone who understands legal strategy and who will fight for you.

Highway Auto Accidents
High speed accidents are terrifying. Owing to the laws of physics, the more quickly you (or the opposing vehicle) is going, the more substantial the opportunity for loss of vehicular control, damages, and/or physical trauma when your vehicles collide. Even a tiny "tap" at high speeds can contribute to a devastating consequence if it makes you lose control of your car or truck. The degree of crashes on the interstate - and their greater associated speeds - lead to more substantial accidents and consequently more extensive damage and insurance claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are associated with a highway (or any) accident in the North Hollywood, 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 free of charge and carries no obligation, and you won't pay us anything unless we win your case and you receive a settlement.Fatalities and potentially terminal trauma are often the consequence of interstate accidents. Once again, due to the significant speeds and physical forces involved, the harm to people and vehicles is frequently greater than a "fender bender" on a residential street. The potential seriousness of interstate accidents increases when you take into account all of the large trucks, commercial vehicles, semitrailers, and tractor-trailers that seem to take over the highways. Due to their bulk and lack of maneuverability, bigger vehicles cannot stop as fast or make tight turns without risking rollover. This issue is compounded at the more significant rates of highway traffic.Motorcycles are also an issue because they very often will "open up" their throttles when they get on the freeway, and they can seemingly appear from thin air.Regardless of whether it involves a truck, a motorcycle, or another passenger vehicle, highway collisions are usually devastating, and you need help if you are to recuperate from the physical, financial, emotional, and psychological consequences of your involvement.

Accidents Due to Weather Conditions
According to a 2019 study carried out by the Federal Highway Administration, about 21% of automotive vehicle accidents are weather related.

- 46% during rainfall
- 18% during snow or sleet
- 16% on snowy or slushy pavement
- 13% on icy pavement
- 3% in fog

Unquestionably. For that matter, you should never speak with a claims adjuster until after you have already spoken to legal counsel. Claims adjusters are working for the insurance provider, they don't represent you. It is their purpose to save their organization's money, and they can’t do that if they voluntarily present you with the maximum settlement, so they will certainly offer you less. Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC will get you more.

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%.
