Roll Over Crashes
Rollovers normally occur due to the higher center of gravity in select vehicles, primarily SUVs (Sport Utility Vehicles) and large trucks. Rollovers can occur when a driver turns the vehicle too quickly and the vehicle's center of gravity suddenly shifts. This shift may cause the tires to suffer a loss of contact with the road and the vehicle to flip. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be exceedingly harmful. A total of 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants perished in rollover accidents in 2016. 28% of these didn't involve any other collision. (IIHS, 2018)As the acceptance of sports utility vehicles increases, so does the proportion of SUV-related traffic collisions. Unfortunately, the death rates involving SUVs is much higher than that 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 declined 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 typical passenger cars and therefore are more susceptible to rollovers. Since the roof structure of most vehicles is not designed to support the body 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 varieties of side impact collisions: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes usually occur when 2 (or more) cars or trucks are moving 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 considerable damage to both vehicles, including structural issues and complications that cannot instantly be viewed but could render the car or truck unsafe. Other times the 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 companies and any liability concerns that may arise.The other kind of side impact collision is the "T-bone" and can have much more lethal results. T-bone collisions take place when the front of one vehicle hits the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone crashes are almost always worse than sideswipes because the momentum in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" while a T-bone transfers all of the energy and momentum from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The impact of a T-bone collision often results in substantial trauma to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in somebody's death or permanent disability.

Head On Accidents
Thankfully, frontal crashes make up only a small percent of automobile crashes. Head-on crashes occur more often in non-urban areas than urban areas, accounting for 13 percent of all rural deadly crashes, while only comprising 7% of lethal collisions in metropolitan areas. (NHTSA)Due to the extent of the majority of head-on crashes, an ambulance and/or EMTs are nearly always dispatched to the scene of the vehicle accident, generating significant health-related costs along with the legal, property damage, and damage to the automobiles involved. As you can imagine, these types of collisions can change the focus of one's everyday living physically, psychologically, and fiscally. You need a proponent; someone who understands legal strategy and who will fight for you.

Highway Auto Accidents
High speed accidents are horrifying. Because of the laws of physics, the quicker you (or the opposing car) is traveling, the more significant the opportunity for the loss of vehicle control, damage, and/or physical injury when your vehicles collide. Even a small "bump" at high speed can give rise to a disastrous result if it makes you lose control of your car or truck. The degree of crashes on the freeway - and their higher accompanying speeds - lead to more major crashes and consequently higher damage and compensation claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved with a highway (or any) accident in the Grand Terrace, 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 consultation is complimentary and carries no obligation, and you won't pay us anything unless we win your case and you receive a settlement.Fatalities and potentially fatal injuries are often the result of highway accidents. Once again, due to the very high speeds and physical forces involved, the harm to people and vehicles is almost always greater than a "fender bender" on a residential street. The possible extent of highway accidents multiplies when you take into account all of the large trucks, commercial vehicles, semis, and tractor-trailers that seem to dominate the freeways. Due to their bulk and lack of maneuverability, larger trucks cannot stop as fast or make tight turns without risking rollover. This issue is compounded at the higher rates of freeway traffic.Motorcycles are also an issue because they frequently "open up" their throttles when they get on the freeway, and they can seemingly appear from thin air.Irrespective of whether it involves a truck, a motorcycle, or another passenger vehicle, freeway crashes are usually catastrophic, and you need assistance if you are to recuperate from the physical, psychological, financial, and emotional consequences of your involvement.

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.
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%.
