Distracted Driving Accidents
It is very hard to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car distractions (your children, music, cellular devices, dogs and cats, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the scenery, traffic, other vehicles, billboards, wildlife, etc.), distractions occur.Regrettably, being distracted while driving a motor vehicle is one of the most treacherous 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 Signal Hill, CA area there are plenty of distractions, and if one of them leads to you getting in a traffic accident, you know who to call: Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890.
Roll Over Accidents
Rollovers usually occur because 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 quickly or sharply and the vehicle's center of gravity suddenly shifts. This shift often causes the tires to suffer a loss of physical 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 occupants were killed in rollover accidents in 2016. 28% of these did not involve any other impact. (IIHS, 2018)As the popularity of SUVs increases, so does the percentage of SUV-related traffic accidents. Unfortunately, the fatality 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 occupant deaths in non-SUV cars occurred in rollovers. The IIHS 2018 study says that while car occupant deaths have dropped 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 susceptible to rollovers. Since the roof 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 in the vehicle.Roll-over 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 kinds of side impact accidents: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes typically 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 significant damage to both vehicles, including structural concerns and complications that cannot immediately be observed but could render the car or truck unsafe. Other times the damage is so significant that the car or truck is not drivable and could be a complete loss. In either event, our legal team will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance carriers and any legal situations that may arise.The other form of side impact collision is the "T-bone" and can have much more deadly results. T-bone collisions happen when the front of one vehicle hits the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone collisions 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 power of a T-bone accident often translates to substantial injuries to the passengers of both vehicles, and can often result in someone's loss of life or permanent impairment. If you or your family member have been the victim of any type of automobile accident, we want to talk to you. Our legal professionals will help you determine if there are legal and financial solutions available to you for your pain and suffering. Call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890 for a free, no obligation consultation.
Head On Collisions
Thankfully, head-on collisions make up only a small percent of driving collisions. Head-on crashes happen far more frequently in rural areas than urban areas, accounting for 13 percent of all non-urban lethal crashes, while only comprising 7 percent of deadly accidents in urban 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 vehicle accident, leading to potentially considerable medical charges in addition to the liability, property damage, and damage to the vehicles involved. As you can imagine, these types of car accidents can transform the course of one's life time physically, emotionally, and economically. You need a supporter; someone who understands legal processes and who will battle for you and your loved ones. If you are included 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 complimentary consultation. Our staff of lawyers has recovered millions of dollars in settlements for our clients in the Signal Hill, CA community, we can help do the same for you, your loved ones, family, or friends.
Highway Car Accidents
High speed crashes are frightening. Owing to the laws of physics, the faster you (or the opposing vehicle) is going, the more substantial the opportunity for the loss of vehicle control, damage, and/or physical injury when your vehicles collide. Even a minor "tap" at high speeds can give rise to a catastrophic consequence if it triggers you to lose control of your car or truck. The seriousness of crashes on the highway - and their significantly greater accompanying speeds - lead to more serious collisions and consequently higher damage and claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved in an interstate (or any) accident in the Signal Hill, 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.Fatalities and life threatening trauma are often the direct result of interstate accidents. Once again, due to the above average speeds and natural forces involved, the damage to people and vehicles is typically greater than a "fender bender" in a residential community. The potential extent of highway accidents multiplies when you take into account all of the large trucks, commercial vehicles, semitrailers, and tractor-trailers that seem to dominate the freeways. Due to their mass and lack of maneuverability, larger vehicles cannot stop as fast or make tight turns without risking rollover. This condition is compounded at the more substantial rates of interstate traffic.Motorcycles are also a challenge because they have a tendency to "open up" their throttles when they get on the freeway, and they can seemingly appear from nowhere.Irrespective of whether it involves another passenger vehicle, a truck or a motorcycle, highway traffic accidents are often devastating, and you need support if you are to recuperate from the physical, psychological, financial, and emotional consequences of your involvement.

Accidents Due to Weather Conditions
According to a 2019 report done by the Federal Highway Administration, about 21% of automotive vehicle crashes are weather related.
- 70% of weather-related accidents happen on wet pavement
- 46% during rainfall
- 18% during snow or sleet
- 16% on snowy or slushy pavement
- 13% on icy pavement
- 3% in fog
The Weather Channel reported in 2018 that weather related motor vehicle accidents kill more individuals annually than large-scale weather disasters. (The Weather Channel, 2018)Needless to say, weather conditions are a contributing factor in motor vehicle crashes, and you need an expert who is there for you - rain or shine - and proficient in dealing with all types of accidents.

It stands to reason that the worse the weather, the more likely there will be consequences on the road. According to Carsurance.net there are about 156,000 crashes annually due to icy roads. Unquestionably a contributing factor is that it will take ten times longer to stop on snow and ice than it will on dry pavement (GEICO Insurance, 2018).
