Accidents Involving Seniors
As indicated by research 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 report from AAA (The Automobile Association of America) reported that per mile traveled, lethal crash rates rise starting out at age 75 and increase dramatically after age 80. And while they determined that this is principally due to an increased risk of injury and medical issues, not an increased risk of crashes, if they are behind the wheel of the other car you may be at a additional risk. If you or a family member in the South Laguna, CA area have been in an accident involving a senior citizen, or if you are over 65 and have been in an accident, contact Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC for a free appointment and to discuss your possible remedies.
It is widely recognized that as we age we begin to lose many of our capabilities. Our hearing can decrease, as can our vision, energy level, cognitive ability, and reactions. The inability - or slowed ability - to respond to a risk or unsafe scenario can be the difference between evading an accident completely or becoming part of the accident studies. With the development of better medical technologies and diet, people are living for a longer time and have more active life styles. As a result, there are more senior vehicle operators on the road, and as a result there are more accidents involving senior drivers. According to Consumer Reports, in 2017 over 3.5 million Americans age 85+ held a driver's license. If you or a family member in the South Laguna, 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 consultation and to look at your possible solutions.
Failure to Yield Accidents
Drivers all over the South Laguna, CA area "fail to yield" on a consistent basis, resulting in numerous accidents. "Failure to yield" is exactly what it appears to be: someone fails to yield the right of way to someone else, contributing to an accident.
Failure to yield accidents are quite common in South Laguna, CA and routinely occur at intersections, with an excessive number of accidents as a result of left-hand turns. Failure to yield accidents also quite often occur at blinking red lights when a vehicle fails to come to a complete stop, flashing yellow lights, and when drivers assertively merge onto roads and/or when lanes merge.Whereas failure to yield accidents are typically more minor, they may result in property damage and physical injury, which may result in loss of revenue because of lost time at a job and disability.

Driving While Texting Accidents
Texting driving is the worst potential thing you can do, and is not only risky, it is quite common. A 2019 Driver Knowledge study determined that 1 out of every 3 people text while driving, even though texting while driving increases the possibility of crashing a startling 23 times. And while 47 out of 50 states have prohibited texting while driving, it still occurs, and it still creates accidents on a consistent basis. If you or a loved one or family member have been in a traffic accident while texting, or while the other driver was texting, you definitely need to contact us. Our reputation for taking care of South Laguna, CA area drivers is exemplary, and with the serious nature of this offense you need a legal team who is not only skilled with texting while driving accidents, but more importantly, their litigation.
In 2018, 8.02% of US households owned motorcycles. (Motorcycle Industry Council, 2019)Although motorcycles make up only 0.6% of all vehicle miles traveled, motorcyclists account for 14% of all traffic deaths and 17% of all occupant (driver and passenger) deaths, (NHTSA, 2019) and while 20% of passenger vehicle crashes lead to an injury or death, 80% of motorcycle crashes result in injury or death. Also, motorcyclist fatalities were much more apt to take place in the city than in outlying 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. Cyclists encounter several of the exact same issues as motorcyclists, but at reduced speeds. Bicycles usually are not as noticeable as cars and/or trucks, they aren't as steady on two wheels as a car is on 4 wheels, and an accident involving a bike has a high percent likelihood of resulting in physical damage. 81% of pedestrian deaths in 2018 took place in metropolitan environments, and 40% of pedestrian deaths involving individuals 70+ in 2018 occurred 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 want a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer. You need Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC. Call us at (877) 278-6890 today.
Teenage and Inexperienced Driver Accidents
As you can likely imagine, the more practice someone is getting driving, the more comfortable they grow to be and the better driver they become. Unfortunately, Teen and inexperienced 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 concluded that Teens are much more likely to violate the speed limit and tailgate than more mature drivers. That same report found that Teens don't consider driving at 5 to 10 mph above the speed limit to be hazardous.The NHTSA found that drivers ages 15-20 had the greatest percentage in speed related fatal crashes (32% and 22%) compared to any other age group in 2016, and that speeding was a consideration in 31% of Teen driver deaths. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) determined that per mile driven, teen drivers ages 16 to 19 are essentially three times more likely to be in a deadly crash than drivers aged 20+, and that motor vehicle accidents are the primary reason of death for US teens.
Granted, no one starts off as an excellent driver; the majority of us required practice, and several of us are still learning! But Teens who do not have practical experience are obviously more susceptible to getting into car accidents. In spite of all of the data showing that teenage drivers can make a handful of mediocre judgments, the hard truth is that they are on the streets with us, and their activity affects you and your loved ones.If you or someone you know has been associated with any sort of accident involving a teenage or new/inexperienced driver, you need to call Law Offices of John C.

Emergency Vehicle Accidents
Sadly, people responding to any sort of accident are also subject to collisions of their own. In 2018, 168 people died in crashes involving emergency vehicles. The lions share of these deaths were occupants of non-emergency vehicles (56%); fatalities among pedestrians, emergency vehicle drivers, and emergency vehicle passengers each accounted for about 13% to 14% of the deaths.

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 scene of accidents; tow trucks for example. While you may well think about tow trucks as the men and women who show up to assist tidy up the consequences of an accident or assist an incapacitated vehicle, accidents involving tow trucks occur more often than you would expect, and can be the source of considerable physical damage to vehicles, not to mention severe injury to individuals. Like large over-the-road trucks (semi-trucks, 18 wheelers, etc.) tow trucks are big, bulky, heavy and not very maneuverable. Their size and diminished mobility play a role in the damage they can do, and when you add a towed-vehicle into the situation you elevate the risk of accidents even further.
Department of Transportation vehicles and other service vehicles (tow trucks, power company vehicles, highway maintenance vehicles, etc.) are everywhere, and yet we tend not to notice them as much because we are so used to seeing them. The fact is, however, that they are big, on the move, and can present potential issues on the roads.You should call Law Offices of John C.
