Distracted Driving Accidents
It is very hard to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car distractions (kids, music, cellular devices, pets, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the view, vehicle traffic, other vehicles, billboards, animals, etc.), distractions occur.Unfortunately, being distracted while behind the wheel 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 View Park, CA area there are plenty of distractions, and if one of them leads to you getting in a car accident, you know who to call: Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890.
Rollovers typically occur due to 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 or sharply and the vehicle's center of gravity suddenly shifts. This shift may cause the tires to suffer a loss of physical contact with the road and the vehicle to flip over. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be extraordinarily dangerous. A combined 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants were killed in rollover accidents in 2016. 28% of these didn't include any other impact. (IIHS, 2018)As the acceptance of SUVs increases, so does the percentage of SUV-related traffic accidents. Unfortunately, the death 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 occupant 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 construction of SUVs are such that they have a higher center of gravity than typical passenger cars and therefore are more vulnerable to rollovers. Since the roof structure 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 inside the vehicle.Rollover 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 2 (or more) automobiles 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 significant damage to both vehicles, including structural problems and complications that cannot immediately be observed but could render the car or truck unsafe. Other times the dent or damage is so severe that the car is not drivable and could be a total loss. In either event, our attorneys will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance companies and any liability situations that may arise.The other kind of side impact collision is the "T-bone" and can have much more life-threatening results. T-bone collisions occur when the front of one vehicle strikes the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone collisions are almost always more serious than sideswipes because the momentum in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" whereas a T-bone transmits all of the power and momentum from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The impact of a T-bone accident often results in substantial injuries to the passengers of both vehicles, and can often result in somebody's loss of life or permanent disability.

Thankfully, frontal collisions make up only a slight percentage of traffic collisions. Head-on accidents take place more often in rural areas than urban areas, accounting for 13% of all rural deadly collisions, while only comprising 7 percent of fatal collisions in metropolitan areas. (NHTSA)Due to the severity of the majority of head-on collisions, an ambulance and/or EMTs are nearly always dispatched to the location of the automobile accident, leading to potentially extensive medical bills in combination with the liability, property damage, and damage to the vehicles involved. Needless to say, these types of accidents can alter the focus of one's lifestyle physically, psychologically, and fiscally. You need an advocate; someone who understands legal processes and who will battle for you and your loved ones. If you are included in a head-on collision - or any vehicle accident for that matter - you will want to call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890 for a complimentary consultation.

Highway Auto Accidents
High-speed collisions are terrifying. Because of the laws of physics, the more quickly you (or the opposing vehicle) is traveling, the better the opportunity for the loss of vehicle control, damages, and/or bodily injury when your vehicles collide. Even a tiny "bump" at high speed can lead to a disastrous result if it causes you to lose control of your vehicle. The severity of crashes on the highway - and their greater accompanying speeds - lead to more serious collisions and subsequently more extensive damage and insurance claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved with a freeway (or any) accident in the View Park, 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 completely 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 injuries are often the direct result of freeway accidents. Once again, due to the higher than average speeds and physical forces involved, the harm to people and vehicles is normally more significant than a "fender bender" in a residential location. The possible seriousness of freeway accidents increases when you take into account all of the large trucks, commercial vehicles, semitrailers, and tractor-trailers that seem to take over the freeways. Due to their weight and lack of maneuverability, bigger vehicles can't stop as readily or make tight turns without the risk of rollover. This problem is compounded at the more substantial rates of freeway traffic.Motorcycles are also a challenge because they possess a tendency to "open up" their throttles when they get on the freeway, and they can seemingly appear from thin air.Despite whether it involves another passenger vehicle, a truck or a motorcycle, interstate crashes are usually catastrophic, and you need help if you are to recuperate from the physical, emotional, psychological, and financial effects of your involvement.

Absolutely. In fact, you shouldn’t communicate with a claims adjuster until after you have spoken to a legal professional. Claims adjusters are employed by the insurance carrier, they do not work for you. It is their duty to protect their organization's money, and they can’t accomplish that if they voluntarily provide you with the greatest settlement, so they're going to 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 medical-related costs. Since California is a Comparative fault state, you are allowed to receive reasonable and customary healthcare costs, but you are only eligible for the proportion that is not your fault. So, if the accident is determined to be 100% the fault of a different person, you should recover one hundred percent of the damages. If, however, you are found to be to blame in any way, your settlement will be discounted by the corresponding percentage.For example, if you were struck by a car (they were at fault) but you were not wearing a seatbelt (as required under California Vehicle Code Section 27363), and injuries you received were 30% as a result of your seatbelt violation, your settlement may be reduced by 30%.
