It is really difficult to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car disruptions (your children, music, cellular phones, animals, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the scenery, vehicle traffic, other vehicles, billboards, wildlife, etc.), distractions occur.Regrettably, being distracted while driving a motor vehicle is one of the most treacherous 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 draw your attention away from the road is dangerous.

Rollovers usually occur as a result of the higher center of gravity in particular vehicles, specifically SUVs (Sport Utility Vehicles) and large trucks. Rollovers can occur when a driver turns the vehicle too quickly and the vehicle's center of gravity shifts suddenly. This shift often causes the tires to be deprived of contact with the road and the vehicle to flip over. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be incredibly dangerous. A total of 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants were killed in rollover accidents in 2016. 28% of these didn't involve any other collision. (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 decreased 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 regular passenger cars and therefore are more prone to rollovers. Since the roof of most vehicles is not designed to support the weight of the car, the impact 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 kinds of side impact accidents: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes usually occur when two (or more) vehicles 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 considerable damage to both vehicles, including structural issues and complications that cannot instantly be observed but could make the vehicle dangerous. Other times the damage is so substantial that the car is not drivable and could be a total loss. Either way, our attorneys will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance providers and any legal complications that may arise.The other kind of side impact collision is the "T-bone" and can have much more dangerous results. T-bone collisions come about when the front of one vehicle strikes the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone crashes are almost always worse 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 impact of a T-bone accident often results in extreme trauma to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in someone's death or permanent disability.

Thankfully, head on accidents make up only a slight percentage of traffic accidents. Head-on crashes occur most frequently in agricultural areas than metropolitan areas, making up 13% of all rural lethal collisions, while only comprising 7 percent of fatal collisions in metropolitan areas. (NHTSA)Due to the extent of virtually all head-on collisions, EMTs and/or an ambulance is almost always dispatched to the scene of the accident, resulting in potentially substantial health related costs along with the liability, property damage, and damage to the cars or trucks involved. Not surprisingly, these types of accidents can transform the focus of one's everyday life physically, psychologically, and financially. You need a proponent; someone who knows legal strategy and who will fight for you.

High speed accidents are horrific. Due to the laws of physics, the faster you (or the opposing vehicle) is moving, the more significant the possibility for loss of vehicular control, damages, and/or physical trauma when your vehicles collide. Even a little "bump" at high speeds can contribute to a disastrous outcome if it causes you to lose control of your car or truck. The extent of crashes on the freeway - and their greater associated speeds - lead to more severe crashes and therefore higher damage and compensation claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved with a freeway (or any) accident in the Santa Maria, 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 consultation is absolutely free and carries no obligation, and you won't pay us anything unless we win your case and you receive a settlement.Loss of life and life threatening trauma are often the consequence of interstate accidents. Once again, due to the very high speeds and physical forces involved, the harm to vehicles and people is normally more significant than a "fender bender" on a residential street. The possible intensity of freeway accidents increases when you take into account all of the large commercial transport trucks, commercial vehicles, semis, and tractor-trailers that seem to take over the freeways. Due to their body mass and lack of maneuverability, heavier trucks can't stop as rapidly or make tight turns without the risk of rollover. This problem is compounded at the greater rates of speed of interstate traffic.Motorcycles are also a challenge because they have the tendency to "open up" their throttles when they get on the highway, and they can seemingly appear from thin air.No matter whether it involves a truck, another passenger vehicle, or a motorcycle, interstate catastrophes are frequently disastrous, and you need assistance if you are to recuperate from the physical, psychological, financial, and emotional consequences of your involvement.
