Accidents Involving Seniors
As mentioned in research done by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in 2017, 18% of all traffic fatalities in 2016 were among people 65 years of age and older. A 2019 study from AAA (The Automobile Association of America) determined that per mile traveled, lethal crash rates increase starting out at age 75 and increase dramatically after age 80. And while they determined that this is principally due to an heightened risk of injury and medical problems, not an increased risk of crashes, if they are behind the wheel of the other car you may be at a higher risk. If you or a family member in the Riverside, 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 take a look at your possible remedies.It is widely known that as we get older we begin to lose many of our effectiveness. Our hearing can lessen, as can our visual acuity, energy level, cognitive ability, and response time. The failure - or delayed ability - to react to a hazardous or dangerous situation can be the difference between preventing an accident completely or becoming part of the accident statistics. With the advent of enhanced medical technologies and nutrition, people are living much longer and have more active lifestyles. Consequently, there are more elderly motorists on the road, and as a result there are more accidents that involve older 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 Riverside, 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 appointment and to discuss your potential solutions.
Failure to Yield Accidents
People all over the Riverside, CA area "fail to yield" on a consistent basis, resulting in many accidents.

Failure to yield accidents also frequently occur at flashing red lights when a car or truck fails to come to a complete stop, blinking yellow lights, and when drivers vigorously merge onto freeways and/or when lanes merge.While failure to yield accidents are typically more minor, they could still result in property damage and physical injury, which may bring about loss of earnings because of lost time at work and disability.

A 2019 Driver Knowledge study determined that 1 out of every 3 people text while driving, even though texting while driving enhances the risk of crashing a startling 23 times. And while 47 out of 50 states have banished texting while driving, it still occurs, and it still generates accidents on a frequent 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 encounter quite a few of the very same concerns as motorcyclists, but at lower speeds. Bicyclists usually aren't as apparent as passenger cars and/or trucks, they aren't as stable on only two tires as a car is on 4 wheels, and an accident involving a bike has a extremely high percent likelihood of leading to physical injuries. 81% of pedestrian deaths in 2018 took place in metropolitan areas, and 40% of pedestrian fatalities involving men and women 70+ in 2018 happened at intersections, as opposed to 22% for those younger than 70. (IIHS, 2019).If you were in an accident involving a bike, a walker, or a motorcycle you are likely to want a knowledgeable law firm. You need Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC.

Teenage and Inexperienced Driver Accidents
As you can potentially imagine, the more practice an individual may get driving, the more secure they grow to be and the more efficient driver they become. Sadly, Teen and new drivers are forced to "practice" on the road with the remainder of us, and they typically have a lot to learn. A 2019 Texas A&M Transportation Institute study concluded that Teens are more inclined to violate the speed limit and tailgate than seasoned drivers. That same report revealed 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 representation in speed-related fatal collisions (32% and 22%) in comparison to any other age bracket in 2016, and that speeding was a component in 31% of Teen driver fatalities. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) determined that per mile driven, teen drivers ages 16 to 19 are almost 3 x more likely to be in a deadly crash than drivers aged 20+, and that motor vehicle crashes are the leading reason of loss of life for US teenagers.Granted, no one starts as a good driver; all of us required practice, and some of us are still learning! But Teens who are lacking practical experience are clearly more prone to getting into car or truck accidents. In spite of all of the studies indicating that Teen drivers can make some poor decisions, the hard truth is that they are on the streets with us, and their conduct affects you and your loved ones.If you or someone you know has been involved in a vehicle accident which involves a teen or new/novice driver, you need to get in touch with Law Offices of John C.

Emergency Vehicle Accidents
Sadly, people responding to accidents are also exposed to collisions of their own. In 2018, 168 people died in crashes involving emergency vehicles. The 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. When individuals are making an attempt to get some place fast, crashes can occur. If you or a loved one were hurt in an accident involving an ambulance, police car, firetruck, or other emergency vehicle, our law firm, Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC can assist you. Call (877) 278-6890 today to set up your initial consultation.
Commercial Vehicle Accidents
There are also other vehicles that respond to the scene of crashes; tow trucks for example. While you could possibly think of tow trucks as the people who make an appearance to help tidy up the aftermath of an auto accident or assist an incapacitated vehicle, accidents involving tow trucks occur more frequently than you would imagine, and can cause considerable physical damage to vehicles, not to mention severe injury to individuals. Like large over-the-road commercial transport trucks (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 physical damage they can do, and when you put a towed-vehicle into the mix you elevate the risk of accidents even further.Department of Transportation cars and trucks and other service vehicles (tow trucks, power company vehicles, highway maintenance vehicles, etc.) are all over the place, and yet we tend not to notice them as much because we are so acquainted with seeing them. The fact is, however, that they are large, mobile, and can present potential risks on the roadways.You should call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC right now at (877) 278-6890 if you are involved with a vehicle accident with a business vehicle.

Auto Accident Lawyer in Riverside, CA
The law firm of Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC work to make sure that victims of auto accidents aren't further affected by inexperienced legal representation. It makes perfect sense that insurance companies are more profitable if they don't have to pay significant settlements; the more money they retain, the more profitable they are. Unfortunately, that philosophy may include repayments to you as well as other affected parties, so they will want to settle your insurance claim for as little money as achievable, but Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC will fight to ensure that you get every penny that you are due.
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.
Definitely. In fact, you should never consult with a claims adjuster until after you have spoken to legal counsel. Claims adjusters work for the insurance carrier, they do not work for you. It is their obligation to protect their organization's cash, and they cannot accomplish that if they voluntarily present you with the highest 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 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%.
