Accidents Involving Seniors
As indicated by a report done by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in 2017, 18% of all traffic fatalities in 2016 were among people 65 years of age and older. A 2019 study from AAA (The Automobile Association of America) found that per mile traveled, fatal crash rates escalate starting at age 75 and go up dramatically after age 80. And while they concluded that this is principally due to an increased risk of injury and medical complications, not an increased risk of crashes, if they are behind the wheel of the other car you may be at a greater risk. If you or a family member in the San Fernando, CA area have been in an accident involving a senior citizen, or if you are a Senior driver and have been in an accident, contact Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC for a free appointment and to take a look at your potential remedies.It is widely recognized that as we grow old we begin to lose many of our abilities. Our hearing can lessen, as can our visual acuity, energy level, cognitive ability, and response time. The failure - or slowed ability - to react to a hazardous or dangerous scenario can be the difference between avoiding an accident altogether or becoming part of the accident data. With the advent of improved medical technological innovations and nutrition, people are living for a longer period and have more active lifestyles. As a result, there are more older motorists on the road, and thereby there are more accidents that involve senior drivers. According to Consumer Reports, in 2017 over 3.5 million Americans 85 and older held a driver's license. If you or a family member in the San Fernando, CA area have been in an accident involving a senior citizen, or if you are a Senior driver and have been in an accident, contact Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC for a free assessment and to talk about your potential solutions.
Failure to Yield Accidents
Drivers all over the San Fernando, CA area "fail to yield" on a routine basis, resulting in numerous accidents. "Failure to yield" is precisely what it sounds like: someone fails to yield the right of way to someone else, which causes an accident.Failure to yield accidents are quite common in San Fernando, CA and regularly occur at intersections, with an inordinate quantity of accidents due to left-hand turns. Failure to yield accidents also frequently occur at flashing red lights when a vehicle fails to make a complete stop, flashing yellow lights, and when drivers aggressively merge onto freeways and/or when lanes merge.While failure to yield accidents are typically more minor, they can still result in property damage and bodily injury, which may lead to loss of earnings because of lost time at a job and disability. We have seen our share of failure to yield cases at Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC and have plenty of expertise litigating these cases. Allow us to work for you if you need an attorney who will fight for your legal rights to the fullest extent of the law. Call (877) 278-6890 today.
Driving While Texting Accidents
Texting behind the wheel of a moving vehicle is the worst potential thing you can do, and is not only dangerous, it is quite prevalent. A 2019 Driver Knowledge study determined that 1 out of every 3 people text while driving, even though texting while driving increases the chances of crashing a startling 23 times. And while 47 out of 50 states have banned texting while driving, it still takes place, and it still generates accidents on a frequent basis. If you or a loved one or family member have been in any sort of accident while texting, or while the other driver was texting, you absolutely need to contact us. Our track record for helping San Fernando, CA area drivers is outstanding, and with the considerable nature of this offense you need a legal team who is not only savvy with texting while driving accidents, but more importantly, their litigation.
In 2018, 8.02% of US households owned motorcycles. (Motorcycle Industry Council, 2019)While motorcycles are responsible for only 0.6% of all motor vehicle miles traveled, riders account for 14% of all traffic fatalities and 17% of all occupant (driver and passenger) fatalities, (NHTSA, 2019) and while 20% of passenger car accidents result in personal injury or loss of life, 80% of motorcycle crashes end in injury or death. Also, motorcyclist fatalities were far more likely to take place in urban than in agricultural areas (60% vs. 38%).

Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents
Accidents involving pedestrians and bicyclists can be even more complicated than vehicle-to-vehicle accidents because the other party may or may not have insurance.Bicyclists deal with many of the very same problems as motorcyclists, but at lower speeds. Bicyclists are usually not as obvious as passenger cars and/or trucks, they aren't as steady on only two tires as a car or truck is on four wheels, and a traffic accident involving a bicycle has a very high percent likelihood of bringing about physical injury. 81% of pedestrian fatalities in 2018 took place in urban areas, and 40% of pedestrian fatalities among men and women 70+ in 2018 took place at intersections, in comparison to 22% for those younger than 70. (IIHS, 2019).If you were in an accident involving a bicycle, a pedestrian, or a motorcycle you are likely to need a skillful attorney. You need Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC. Call us at (877) 278-6890 today.
Teenage and Inexperienced Driver Accidents
As you can probably imagine, the more practice someone receives driving, the more assured they become and the more comfortable driver they develop into. Unfortunately, teenage and new drivers are expected to "practice" on the roads with the rest of us, and they usually have a lot to learn! A 2019 Texas A&M Transportation Institute study determined that Teens are much more likely to violate the speed limit and follow at unsafe distances than more mature drivers. That same report found that Teens do not consider driving at 5 to 10 mph above the speed limit to be dangerous.The NHTSA found that drivers ages 15-20 had the highest representation in speed-related fatalities (32% and 22%) as opposed to any other age-group in 2016, and that driving too fast was a factor in 31% of Teen driver fatalities. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) determined that per mile driven, teen drivers ages 16 to 19 are nearly 3 times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash than drivers aged 20 and older, and that motor vehicle crashes are the leading reason of loss of life for US teenagers.Granted, no one starts as a good driver; every one of us required practice, and a number of us are still learning! But teenagers who do not have experience are clearly more susceptible to getting into car or truck crashes. Despite all of the studies indicating that teenage drivers can make a handful of poor judgments, the hard truth is that they are driving on the road with us, and their behavior affects you and your loved ones.If you have been associated with a vehicle accident involving a teen or new/inexperienced driver, you need to get in touch with Law Offices of John C.

Emergency Vehicle Accidents
Unfortunately, people responding to any sort of accident are also subject to collisions of their own. In 2018, 168 people were killed in accidents involving emergency vehicles. The great majority of these deaths were occupants of non-emergency vehicles (56%); fatalities among pedestrians, emergency vehicle drivers, and emergency vehicle passengers each amounted to about 13% to 14% of the fatalities. When individuals are trying to get somewhere fast, crashes can occur.

Call (877) 278-6890 today to set up your initial consultation.
Commercial Vehicle Accidents
There are also other cars and trucks that respond to the location of traffic accidents; tow trucks for example. While you might possibly think of tow trucks as the people who show up to help to clear up the aftermath of a vehicle accident or assist an incapacitated car or truck, accidents involving tow trucks occur more frequently than you would envision, and can be the source of significant physical damage to vehicles, together with serious accidental injury to people. Like large over-the-road trucks (semi-trucks, 18 wheelers, etc.) tow trucks are big, bulky, heavy and not very agile. Their size and diminished mobility contribute to the damage they can do, and when you put a towed-vehicle into the mix you increase the chances of accidents even further.Department of Transportation vehicles and other support vehicles (tow trucks, power company trucks, freeway maintenance vehicles, etc.) are everywhere, and yet we usually do not notice them as much because we are so accustomed to seeing them. The fact is, however, that they are big, mobile, and can present risks on the roadways.You should call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC right away at (877) 278-6890 if you are involved with a collision with a business vehicle.
