Distracted Driving Accidents
It is really difficult to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car distractions (kids, music, mobile phones, cats and dogs, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the view, vehicle traffic, other vehicles, billboards, wildlife, etc.), diversions occur.Unfortunately, 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 eyes away from the road is dangerous. In the Inglewood, CA area there are plenty of distractions, and if one of them leads to you getting in an accident, you know who to call: Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890.
Rollovers commonly occur due to the higher center of gravity in select vehicles, specifically 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 suddenly shifts. This shift can cause the tires to lose physical contact with the road and the vehicle to flip. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be exceptionally hazardous. A combined 7,488 passenger vehicle drivers and occupants were killed in rollover crashes in 2016. 28% of these did not involve any other impact. (IIHS, 2018)As the acceptance of SUVs increases, so does the percentage of SUV-related traffic collisions. Unfortunately, the death 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 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 of SUVs are such that they have a higher center of gravity than traditional passenger cars and therefore are more vulnerable to rollovers. Since the roofing system of most vehicles is not designed to support the body weight of the car, the impact sustained in a rollover can crush the roof and cause massive and catastrophic injuries to the passengers inside the vehicle.Rollover 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 types of side impact crashes: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes typically occur when 2 (or more) automobiles 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 extensive damage to both vehicles, including structural concerns and complications that cannot instantly be spotted but could make the car or truck quite unsafe. Other times the damage is so significant that the car or truck is not drivable and could be a complete loss. Either way, our law firm will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance providers and any liability difficulties that may arise.The other form of side impact collision is the "T-bone" and can have much more life-threatening results. T-bone collisions come about when the front of one vehicle strikes the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone auto accidents are almost always much worse than sideswipes because the energy in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" whereas a T-bone transmits all of the energy and force from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The effect of a T-bone accident often results in extreme injuries to the passengers of both vehicles, and can often result in someone's death or permanent disability.

Thankfully, frontal collisions make up only a small percentage of vehicle crashes. Head-on crashes take place far more frequently in non-urban locations than metropolitan areas, accounting for 13% of all non-urban lethal accidents, while only comprising 7% of fatal crashes in metropolitan areas. (NHTSA)Due to the nature of virtually all head-on collisions, EMTs and/or an ambulance is almost always dispatched to the location of the automobile accident, leading to potentially substantial medical expenses as well as the legal, property damage, and damage to the motor vehicles involved. Essentially, these types of traffic accidents can change the focus of one's lifestyle physically, psychologically, and economically. You need an advocate; someone who knows legal processes and who will battle for you and your family.

Freeway Vehicle Accidents
High-speed collisions are horrific. Owing to the laws of physics, the faster you (or the opposing vehicle) is going, the greater the possibility for loss of vehicle control, damages, and/or physical injury when your vehicles collide. Even a small "tap" at high speed can lead to a catastrophic outcome if it makes you lose control of your car or truck. The extent of collisions on the highway - and their higher than average speeds - lead to more severe collisions and subsequently higher damage and insurance claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved in an interstate (or any) accident in the Inglewood, 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 free of charge and carries no obligation, and you won't pay us anything unless we win your case and you receive a settlement.Loss of life and life-threatening injuries are often the outcome of highway accidents. Once again, due to the very high speeds and actual physical forces involved, the damage to vehicles and people is typically greater than a "fender bender" on a residential street. The potential seriousness of freeway accidents goes up when you take into account all of the large commercial transport trucks, commercial vehicles, 18 wheelers, and tractor-trailers that seem to dominate the highways. Due to their weight and lack of maneuverability, heavier trucks can't stop as fast or make tight turns without risking rollover. This condition is compounded at the more substantial rates of freeway traffic.Motorcycles are also a challenge because they tend to "open up" their throttles when they get on the freeway, and they can seemingly appear from nowhere.Irrespective of whether it involves a motorcycle, another passenger vehicle, or a truck, highway accidents are frequently disastrous, and you need help if you are to recover from the physical, emotional, psychological, and financial effects of your involvement.

Accidents Due to Weather Conditions
According to a 2019 study conducted by the Federal Highway Administration, about 21% of automotive vehicle accidents are weather related.

- 46% during rainfall
- 18% during snow or sleet
- 16% on snowy or slushy pavement
- 13% on icy pavement
- 3% in fog

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 accountable for all, a portion, or none of your medical-related bills. Since California is a Comparative fault state, you are allowed to receive reasonable and customary medical expenses, but you are only qualified to receive the portion that is not your responsibility. So, if the car accident is determined to be 100% the fault of a second party, you ought to recover 100% of the damages. If, however, you are found to be in the wrong in any way, your reimbursement will be diminished by the proportionate 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 trauma you suffered were 30% caused by your seat belt infraction, your payment may be reduced by 30%.
