Distracted Driving Accidents
It is very hard to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car disruptions (children, music, mobile phones, pets, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the scenery, vehicle traffic, other vehicles, billboards, wildlife, etc.), distractions occur.Regrettably, being distracted while behind the wheel is one of the most dangerous 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 take your attention away from the road is dangerous. In the La Palma, CA area there are plenty of distractions, and if one of them leads to you getting in any sort of accident, you know who to call: Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890.
Roll Over Crashes
Rollovers normally occur as a consequence of the higher center of gravity in specific vehicles, especially 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 lose contact with the road and the vehicle to flip over. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be tremendously harmful. A combined 7,488 passenger vehicle drivers and occupants died in rollover crashes in 2016. 28% of the accidents didn't include any other impact. (IIHS, 2018)As the level of popularity of sports utility vehicles increases, so does the percentage of SUV-related traffic accidents. 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 occupant deaths in non-SUV cars occurred in rollovers. The IIHS 2018 study says that while car occupant deaths have decreased 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 prone to rollovers. Since the roof structure of most vehicles is not designed to support the body weight of the vehicle, the damage 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 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 kinds of side impact collisions: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes commonly occur when two (or more) cars or trucks are moving 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 issues and complications that cannot instantly be seen but could make the car or truck quite unsafe. Other times the dent or damage is so severe that the car or truck is not drivable and could be a complete loss. In either event, our attorneys will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance carriers and any liability challenges that may arise.The other kind of side impact accident is the "T-bone" and can have much more fatal results. T-bone collisions happen when the front of one vehicle hits the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone auto accidents are almost always worse than sideswipes because the energy in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" while a T-bone transfers all of the energy and force from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The power of a T-bone accident often translates to significant injuries to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in somebody's loss of life or permanent impairment. If you or someone close have been the victim of any type of car accident, we want to talk to you. Our legal experts will help you discover if there are legal and economic remedies available to you for your pain and suffering. Call Law Offices of John C.

Head On Accidents
Thankfully, head on accidents make up only a tiny percentage of vehicle accidents. Head-on accidents happen far more frequently in agricultural areas than urban areas, accounting for 13 percent of all rural lethal accidents, while only comprising 7% of fatal crashes in urban areas. (NHTSA)Due to the severity of virtually all head-on collisions, EMTs and/or an ambulance is nearly always dispatched to the location of the accident, resulting in significant medical fees in addition to the legal, property damage, and damage to the cars or trucks involved. As you can imagine, these types of catastrophes can change the course of one's daily life physically, psychologically, and financially. You need an advocate; someone who understands legal processes and who will battle for you and your family. If you are involved in a head-on collision - or any motor vehicle accident for that matter - you will want to call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890 for a no obligation consultation.

Highway Traffic Accidents
High speed crashes are terrifying. Due to the laws of physics, the quicker you (or the opposing car) is traveling, the more significant the possibility for the loss of vehicular control, damage, and/or physical injury when your vehicles collide. Even a tiny "tap" at high speeds can lead to a catastrophic result if it causes you to lose control of your car or truck. The severity of auto accidents on the interstate - and their higher speeds - lead to more serious accidents and therefore more substantial damage and insurance claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved in an interstate (or any) accident in the La Palma, 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 discussion 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 fatal trauma are often the direct result of highway accidents. Once again, due to the above average speeds and natural forces involved, the damage to vehicles and people is normally greater than a "fender bender" on a residential street. The potential intensity of freeway accidents multiplies when you take into account all of the large trucks, commercial vehicles, semis, and tractor-trailers that seem to take over the highways. Due to their mass and lack of maneuverability, bigger vehicles can't stop as easily or make tight turns without risking rollover. This condition is compounded at the more substantial rates of interstate traffic.Motorcycles are also an issue because they very often will "open up" their throttles when they get on the freeway, and they can seemingly appear from thin air.Regardless of whether it involves a motorcycle, a truck, or another passenger vehicle, interstate accidents are oftentimes devastating, and you need help and support if you are to recuperate from the physical, psychological, financial, and emotional side effects of your involvement. Contact us today at (877) 278-6890.

- 16% on snowy or slushy pavement
