Accidents Involving Seniors
As outlined by a report done by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in 2017, 18% of all traffic fatalities in 2016 were people 65 years of age and older. A 2019 study from AAA (The Automobile Association of America) found that per mile traveled, deadly crash rates rise starting out at age 75 and rise sharply after age 80. And while they came to the conclusion that this is mainly due to an elevated risk of injury and medical complications, not an increased risk of crashes, if they are driving the other car you may be at a greater risk. If you or a family member in the Cypress, CA area have been in an accident involving a senior citizen, or if you are a Senior driver and have been in an accident, contact Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC for a free assessment and to look at your potential remedies.It is well-known that as we get older we begin to lose a lot of of our abilities. Our hearing can diminish, as can our eyesight, energy level, cognitive ability, and reflexes. The inability - or delayed ability - to react to a hazardous or unsafe circumstance can be the difference between avoiding an accident completely or becoming part of the accident studies. With the advancement of improved medical technologies and nutrition, people are living for a longer time and have more active life styles. As a result, there are more senior drivers on the road, and consequently there are more accidents that involve elderly drivers. According to Consumer Reports, in 2017 over 3.5 million Americans age 85+ held a driver's license. If you or a family member in the Cypress, CA area have been in an accident involving a senior citizen, or if you are over 65 and have been in an accident, contact Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC for a free consultation and to go over your possible remedies.
Failure to Yield Accidents
Motorists all over the Cypress, CA area "fail to yield" on a regular basis, resulting in many accidents. "Failure to yield" is exactly what it sounds like: someone fails to yield the right of way to someone else, contributing to an accident.Failure to yield accidents are quite common in Cypress, CA and frequently occur at intersections, with an inordinate number of accidents as a result of left-hand turns. Failure to yield accidents also commonly occur at flashing red lights when a car or truck fails to come to a complete stop, blinking yellow lights, and when drivers assertively merge onto highways and/or when lanes merge.Whereas failure to yield accidents are often more minor, they may still result in property damage and bodily injuries, which may bring about loss of revenue because of lost time at work and disability.

Driving While Texting Accidents
Texting behind the wheel of a moving vehicle is the worst potential thing you can do, and is not only risky, it is quite widespread. A 2019 Driver Knowledge study determined that 1 out of every 3 people text while driving, even though texting while driving will increase the chances of crashing a startling 23 times. And while 47 out of 50 states have banished texting while driving, it still takes place, and it still can cause accidents on a regular basis.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents
Accidents involving pedestrians and bicyclists can be even more complicated than vehicle-to-vehicle accidents because the other party may or may not have insurance.Bicyclists endure several of the very same challenges as motorcyclists, but at lower rates of speed. Bicyclists usually aren't as visible as cars and/or trucks, they aren't as steady on two wheels as a car or truck is on four wheels, and any sort of accident including a bike has a high percent probability of resulting in physical injury. 81% of pedestrian fatalities in 2018 took place in metropolitan areas, and 40% of pedestrian deaths among people 70 and older in 2018 took place at intersections, compared to 22% for those younger than 70. (IIHS, 2019).If you were in any sort of accident involving a bicycle, a pedestrian, or a motorcycle you are likely to really want a professional law firm. You need Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC.

Teenage and Inexperienced Driver Accidents
As you can probably imagine, the more practice a person receives driving, the more self-confident they grow to be and the more comfortable driver they grow to be. Sadly, teenage and new drivers are expected to "practice" on the road with the rest of us, and they often have a lot to learn! A 2019 Texas A&M Transportation Institute study determined that Teens are more inclined to speed and follow at unsafe distances than experienced drivers. That same report found that Teens don't consider driving at 5 to 10 mph above the speed limit to be dangerous.The NHTSA found that drivers ages 15-20 had the highest percentage in speed related fatal crashes (32% and 22%) as opposed to any other age-group in 2016, and that speeding was an issue in 31% of Teen driver fatalities. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) found that per mile driven, teen drivers ages 16 to 19 are nearly three times more likely to be in a deadly crash than drivers aged 20 and older, and that car crashes are the primary reason of loss of life for US teenagers.Granted, no one begins as an outstanding driver; every one of us needed practice, and several of us are still learning! But Teens who don't have experience are definitely more prone to getting into car or truck accidents. Despite all of the stats indicating that Teen drivers can make a lot of bad decisions, the reality is that they are on the highway with us, and their activity affects you and your loved ones.If you have been involved with any sort of accident involving a teenage or new/unskilled driver, you need to contact Law Offices of John C.

Emergency Vehicle Accidents
Regrettably, men and women responding to crashes are also subject to accidents of their own. In 2018, 168 people died in crashes involving emergency vehicles. The vast majority of these fatalities were occupants of non-emergency vehicles (56%); fatalities among pedestrians, emergency vehicle drivers, and emergency vehicle passengers each amounted to about 13% to 14% of the deaths.

Call (877) 278-6890 today to set up your initial consultation.
Commercial Vehicle Accidents
There are also other cars and trucks that respond to the location of accidents; tow trucks for instance. While you might possibly think about tow trucks as the guys who show up to help clean up the consequences of an accident or assist an incapacitated car or truck, accidents involving tow trucks occur more often than you would expect, and can cause appreciable physical damage to vehicles, in addition to serious personal injury to people. Like large over-the-road vehicles (semi-trucks, 18 wheelers, etc.) tow trucks are big, bulky, quite heavy and not very maneuverable. Their size and lack of mobility play a role in the destruction they can do, and when you insert a towed-vehicle into the situation you elevate the risk of accidents even further.Department of Transportation vehicles and other support vehicles (tow trucks, electric power company trucks, freeway repairs and maintenance trucks, etc.) are everywhere, and yet we tend not to notice them as much because we are so comfortable with seeing them. The fact is, however, that they are heavy, on the move, and can present hazards on the roadways.You should call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC right now at (877) 278-6890 if you are involved in an accident with a commercial vehicle.

Absolutely. For that matter, you should never talk to a claims adjuster until after you’ve spoken to an attorney at law. Claims adjusters are employed by the insurance carrier, they do not represent you. It is their duty to save their organization's money, and they can’t accomplish that if they voluntarily provide you the maximum payment, 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%.
