Distracted Driving Accidents
It is quite difficult 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, traffic, other vehicles, billboards, wildlife, etc.), distractions occur.Regrettably, being distracted while driving 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 focus away from the road is dangerous. In the Glendale, 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 usually occur as a result of the higher center of gravity in certain vehicles, particularly SUVs (Sport Utility Vehicles) and large trucks. Rollovers can occur when a driver turns the vehicle too sharply or quickly and the vehicle's center of gravity shifts suddenly. This shift can cause the tires to be deprived of physical contact with the ground and the vehicle to flip over. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be incredibly harmful. A total of 7,488 passenger vehicle drivers and occupants were killed in rollover accidents in 2016. 28% of the accidents did not involve any other collision. (IIHS, 2018)As the acceptance of SUVs increases, so does the percentage of SUV-related traffic collisions. Unfortunately, the fatality rates involving SUVs is much higher than those 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 roof structure of most vehicles is not designed to support the weight of the vehicle, the impact 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 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 crashes: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes typically occur when two (or more) automobiles 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 considerable damage to both vehicles, including structural problems and complications that cannot immediately be seen but could make the car or truck quite unsafe. Other times the dent or damage is so extensive that the car or truck is not operational and could be a complete loss. Either way, our law firm will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance carriers and any liability difficulties that may arise.The other type of side impact accident is the "T-bone" and can have much more dangerous results. T-bone collisions happen when the front of one vehicle strikes the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone accidents are almost always more serious than sideswipes because the momentum in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" whereas a T-bone transfers all of the energy and force from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The impact of a T-bone collision often can cause significant trauma to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in somebody's death or permanent disability.

Our legal professionals will help you discover if there are legal and financial solutions available to you for your pain and suffering. Call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890 for a free, no obligation consultation.
Thankfully, head-on accidents make up only a slight percent of driving crashes. Head-on crashes happen far more frequently in remote locations than metropolitan areas, making up 13 percent of all rural fatal accidents, while only comprising 7% of fatal collisions in urban areas. (NHTSA)Due to the extent of virtually all head-on accidents, EMTs and/or an ambulance is almost always dispatched to the scene of the vehicle accident, generating substantial health related expenditures along with the legal, property damage, and damage to the vehicles involved. Needless to say, these types of traffic accidents can alter the course of one's daily life physically, psychologically, and economically.

Freeway Auto Accidents
High-speed crashes are horrifying. Because of the laws of physics, the quicker you (or the opposing vehicle) is going, the greater the possibility for loss of vehicular control, damages, and/or physical injury when your vehicles collide. Even a minor "tap" at high speed can give rise to a catastrophic outcome if it triggers you to lose control of your vehicle. The seriousness of crashes on the freeway - and their greater accompanying speeds - lead to more major accidents and subsequently more substantial damage and insurance claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved with a freeway (or any) accident in the Glendale, 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 100 % 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 outcome of interstate accidents. Once again, due to the higher speeds and physical forces involved, the damage to vehicles and people is generally more significant than a "fender bender" on a residential street. The potential extent 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 highways. Due to their mass and lack of maneuverability, bigger trucks cannot stop as easily or make tight turns without risking rollover. This issue is compounded at the greater speeds of highway traffic.Motorcycles are also a challenge because they be inclined to "open up" their throttles when they get on the interstate, and they can seemingly appear from nowhere.No matter whether it involves a motorcycle, a truck, or another passenger vehicle, interstate collisions are oftentimes disastrous, and you need help and support if you are to recover from the physical, emotional, psychological, and financial effects of your involvement.
