Distracted Driving Accidents
It is extremely difficult to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car disruptions (children, music, mobile phones, animals, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the view, vehicle traffic, other vehicles, billboards, wildlife, etc.), diversions occur.Unfortunately, being distracted while behind the wheel is one of the most hazardous 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. In the Walnut, 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.
Rollovers typically 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 shifts suddenly. This shift can cause the tires to suffer a loss of contact with the road and the vehicle to flip. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be extraordinarily hazardous. A total of 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants died in rollover crashes in 2016. 28% of the accidents didn't include any other impact. (IIHS, 2018)As the acceptance of SUVs increases, so does the proportion of SUV-related traffic accidents. Unfortunately, the fatality rates involving SUVs is much higher than those 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 and style 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 damage sustained in a rollover can crush the roof and cause massive and catastrophic injuries to the passengers inside the vehicle.Roll over 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 collisions: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes typically occur when two (or more) vehicles are traveling 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 seen but could make the vehicle dangerous. Other times the damage is so significant that the car is not operational and could be a total loss. Either way, our law firm 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 occur when the front of one vehicle hits the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone auto accidents are almost always much worse than sideswipes because the momentum in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" while a T-bone transmits all of the power and force from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The power of a T-bone collision often translates to drastic trauma to the passengers of both vehicles, and can often result in somebody's loss of life or permanent impairment.

Head On Collisions
Thankfully, head-on accidents make up only a small percentage of automobile collisions. Head-on accidents happen more frequently in remote locations than urban areas, making up 13 percent of all rural lethal accidents, while only comprising 7 percent of lethal crashes in metropolitan areas. (NHTSA)Due to the severity of most head-on accidents, EMTs and/or an ambulance is nearly always dispatched to the location of the vehicle accident, resulting in considerable health related costs not to mention the legal, property damage, and damage to the motor vehicles involved. Not surprisingly, these types of traffic accidents can alter the focus of one's everyday living physically, psychologically, and fiscally. You need an ally; someone who understands legal processes and who will fight for you and your family.

Highway Vehicle Accidents
High-speed crashes are frightening. Because of the laws of physics, the faster you (or the opposing car) is traveling, the more substantial the opportunity for loss of vehicular control, damages, and/or physical trauma when your vehicles collide. Even a tiny "bump" at high speed can lead to a devastating outcome if it causes you to lose control of your car or truck. The extent of collisions on the highway - and their significantly greater associated speeds - lead to more serious accidents and subsequently more extensive damage and insurance claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved with a highway (or any) accident in the Walnut, 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.

Once again, due to the high speeds and physical forces involved, the damage to vehicles and people is typically greater than a "fender bender" on a residential street. The possible severity of freeway accidents goes up when you take into account all of the large commercial transport trucks, commercial vehicles, semitrailers, and tractor-trailers that seem to take over the freeways. Due to their mass and lack of maneuverability, heavier trucks can't stop as quickly or make tight turns without risking rollover. This condition is compounded at the higher rates of speed of interstate traffic.Motorcycles are also a problem because they frequently "open up" their throttles when they get on the freeway, and they can seemingly appear from thin air.Despite whether it involves a truck, another passenger vehicle, or a motorcycle, highway traffic accidents are often catastrophic, and you need assistance if you are to recuperate from the physical, psychological, financial, and emotional effects of your involvement.

Accidents Due to Weather Conditions
According to a 2019 study done by the Federal Highway Administration, about 21% of motor vehicle crashes are weather-related.

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

Definitely. For that matter, you shouldn’t communicate with a claims adjuster until after you have spoken to an attorney at law. Claims adjusters are employed by the insurance underwriter, they don't represent you. It is their duty to preserve their company's cash, and they can’t accomplish that if they voluntarily offer you the greatest settlement, so they are 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 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 fault. So, if the vehicle accident is determined to be 100% the fault of a second person, you ought to recover 100 percent of the damages. If, however, you are determined to be at fault in any way, your reimbursement will be lessened by the proportionate percentage.For example, if you were hit by a motor vehicle (they were at fault) but you were not wearing a seatbelt (as required under California Vehicle Code Section 27363), and injuries you sustained were 30% caused by your seatbelt infraction, your payment may be reduced by 30%.
