Distracted Driving Accidents
It is quite challenging to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car disruptions (kids, music, cellular phones, animals, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the view, traffic, other vehicles, billboards, wildlife, etc.), distractions occur.Unfortunately, being distracted while driving a vehicle 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 draw your eyes away from the road is dangerous. In the Lake Los Angeles, CA area there are plenty of distractions, and if one of them leads to you getting in a major accident, you know who to call: Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890.
Rollovers commonly occur as a consequence of the higher center of gravity in specific vehicles, primarily 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 suffer a loss of contact with the ground and the vehicle to flip. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be exceedingly hazardous. A combined 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants were killed in rollover crashes in 2016. 28% of these didn't involve any other impact. (IIHS, 2018)As the acceptance of sports utility vehicles increases, so does the percentage 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 occupant 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 regular passenger cars and therefore are more prone to rollovers. Since the roof 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 in the vehicle.Rollover accidents are also common 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 two (or more) vehicles 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 problems and complications that cannot immediately be viewed but could render the car or truck dangerous. Other times the dent or damage is so significant that the car is not operational and could be a complete loss. Either way, our legal team will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance carriers and any legal difficulties that may arise.The other form of side impact accident is the "T-bone" and can have much more fatal results. T-bone collisions take place when the front of one vehicle strikes the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone car accidents are almost always much worse than sideswipes because the momentum in a sideswipe is more of a "glancing blow" while a T-bone transmits all of the energy and force from one vehicle into the side of the other vehicle. The power of a T-bone accident often can cause drastic injuries to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in somebody's death or permanent impairment.

Head On Accidents
Thankfully, frontal collisions make up only a slight percentage of automobile accidents. Head-on collisions happen far more often in rural locations than metropolitan areas, accounting for 13% of all non-urban deadly accidents, while only comprising 7 percent of lethal collisions in metropolitan areas. (NHTSA)Due to the extent of the majority of head-on accidents, an ambulance and/or EMTs are nearly always dispatched to the scene of the crash, leading to considerable medical-related expenses as well as the liability, property damage, and damage to the cars or trucks involved. Needless to say, these types of car accidents can transform the focus of one's daily life physically, psychologically, and financially. You need a proponent; someone who knows legal techniques and who will fight for you. If you are part of a head-on collision - or any vehicle accident for that matter - you need to call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890 for a no-cost consultation.

Highway Car Accidents
High speed accidents are frightening. Due to the laws of physics, the faster you (or the opposing car) is traveling, the higher the opportunity for the loss of vehicular control, damage, and/or physical trauma when your vehicles collide. Even a tiny "bump" at high speed can give rise to a disastrous consequence if it makes you lose control of your car or truck. The extent of crashes on the interstate - and their significantly greater accompanying speeds - lead to more severe accidents and therefore more extensive damage and compensation claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved with a highway (or any) accident in the Lake Los Angeles, 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.Fatalities and potentially fatal trauma are often the outcome of freeway accidents. Once again, due to the high speeds and actual physical forces involved, the damage to vehicles and people is normally greater than a "fender bender" in a residential location. The potential intensity of interstate accidents multiplies 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, bigger vehicles can't stop as readily or make tight turns without risking rollover. This problem is compounded at the more significant rates of speed of highway 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.No matter whether it involves a truck, a motorcycle, or another passenger vehicle, interstate catastrophes are usually disastrous, and you need support if you are to recover from the physical, emotional, psychological, and financial side effects of your involvement.

- 16% on snowy or slushy pavement

Ye, APLC will get you more.
