Distracted Driving Accidents
It is really difficult to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car disruptions (kids, music, cellular devices, dogs and cats, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the view, traffic, other vehicles, billboards, wildlife animals, etc.), diversions 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 attention away from the road is dangerous. In the Woodcrest, 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.
Roll Over Accidents
Rollovers generally occur as a consequence of the higher center of gravity in particular vehicles, particularly 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 lose physical contact with the ground and the vehicle to flip over. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be exceedingly dangerous. A total of 7,488 passenger vehicle drivers and occupants were killed in rollover crashes in 2016. 28% of these didn't include any other collision. (IIHS, 2018)As the acceptance of sports utility vehicles increases, so does the proportion 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 occupant 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 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 vulnerable to rollovers. Since the roofing system of most vehicles is not designed to support the weight of the vehicle, 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 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 varieties of side impact crashes: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes typically occur when two (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 instantly be observed but could make the car or truck dangerous. Other times the dent or damage is so significant that the car is not operational and could be a total loss. Either way, our legal team will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance underwriters and any legal difficulties that may arise.The other kind of side impact collision 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 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 energy and momentum from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The impact of a T-bone accident often results in drastic injuries to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in someone's death or permanent impairment.

Head On Accidents
Thankfully, head-on collisions make up only a tiny percentage of traffic collisions. Head-on collisions take place more often in non-urban areas than metropolitan areas, making up 13% of all rural deadly accidents, while only comprising 7% of fatal collisions in urban areas. (NHTSA)Due to the nature of most head-on crashes, an ambulance and/or EMTs are nearly always dispatched to the location of the crash, generating potentially extensive medical expenses 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 personal life physically, psychologically, and financially. You need a supporter; someone who understands legal processes and who will fight for you and your family. If you are part of a head-on collision - or any vehicle accident for that matter - you need to call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890 for a no obligation consultation.

Highway Auto Accidents
High speed crashes are horrific. Owing to the laws of physics, the more rapidly you (or the opposing car) is going, the more significant the opportunity for the loss of vehicular control, damage, and/or bodily injury when your vehicles collide. Even a tiny "bump" at high speeds can give rise to a disastrous outcome if it causes you to lose control of your car or truck. The degree of accidents on the highway - and their significantly greater accompanying speeds - lead to more severe crashes and therefore more significant damage and claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are associated with a freeway (or any) accident in the Woodcrest, 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 completely free 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 consequence of interstate accidents. Once again, due to the higher than average speeds and actual physical forces involved, the harm to people and vehicles is frequently greater than a "fender bender" on a residential street. The possible severity of highway accidents increases when you take into account all of the large commercial transport trucks, commercial vehicles, semitrailers, and tractor-trailers that seem to dominate the highways. Due to their mass and lack of maneuverability, larger vehicles can't stop as quickly or make tight turns without risking rollover. This condition is compounded at the greater rates of speed of highway traffic.Motorcycles are also problematic because they have a tendency to "open up" their throttles when they get on the highway, and they can seemingly appear from nowhere.Despite whether it involves a motorcycle, another passenger vehicle, or a truck, freeway catastrophes are often catastrophic, and you need assistance if you are to recover from the physical, psychological, emotional, and financial 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.
- 70% of weather related crashes occur on wet pavement
- 46% during rainfall
- 18% during snow or sleet
- 16% on snowy or slushy pavement
- 13% on icy pavement
- 3% in fog
The Weather Channel reported in 2018 that weather-related motor vehicle traffic accidents kill more people annually than large scale weather disasters.

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%.
