Distracted Driving Accidents
It is really difficult to remain 100% focused on driving. Whether it's in-car distractions (young children, music, mobile phones, dogs and cats, etc.) or something outside your vehicle (the view, automobile traffic, other vehicles, billboards, wildlife, etc.), distractions occur.Unfortunately, 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 eyes away from the road is dangerous. In the Sun Village, CA area there are plenty of distractions, and if one of them leads to you getting in an 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 particular 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 suddenly shifts. This shift can cause the tires to lose physical contact with the road and the vehicle to flip. For obvious reasons, rollover accidents can be incredibly dangerous. A combined 7,488 passenger vehicle occupants were killed in rollover crashes in 2016. 28% of the accidents didn't involve any other impact. (IIHS, 2018)As the level of popularity of sports utility vehicles increases, so does the percentage of SUV-related traffic collisions. Unfortunately, the death 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 passenger 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 construction of SUVs are such that they have a higher center of gravity than regular passenger cars and therefore are more vulnerable to rollovers. Since the roof structure of most vehicles is not designed to support the body weight of the car, 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 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 accidents: the "sideswipe" and the "T-bone."Sideswipes typically occur when two (or more) cars or trucks are traveling 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 substantial damage to both vehicles, including structural problems and complications that cannot instantly be spotted but could make the vehicle quite unsafe. Other times the damage is so substantial that the car is not drivable and could be a complete loss. Either way, our attorneys will guide you through the process of dealing with the insurance carriers and any liability concerns that may arise.The other form of side impact collision is the "T-bone" and can have much more life threatening results. T-bone collisions happen when the front of one vehicle hits the side of the other vehicle (like a "T"). T-bone traffic accidents are almost always more serious than sideswipes because the momentum 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 impact of a T-bone accident often results in considerable trauma to the occupants of both vehicles, and can often result in somebody's loss of life or permanent disability. If you or someone close have been the victim of any type of automobile accident, we want to talk to you. Our legal experts will help you figure out if there are legal and monetary 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 Accidents
Thankfully, frontal accidents make up only a tiny percent of driving collisions. Head-on accidents happen far more often in outlying areas than urban areas, making up 13% of all rural fatal accidents, while only comprising 7% of deadly crashes in metropolitan areas. (NHTSA)Due to the severity of the majority of head-on crashes, an ambulance and/or EMTs are nearly always dispatched to the location of the auto accident, generating significant health-related costs in addition to the legal, property damage, and damage to the motor vehicles involved. As you can imagine, these types of collisions can transform the course of one's way of life physically, emotionally, and economically. You need an ally; someone who knows legal processes and who will fight for you and your loved ones. If you are involved with a head-on collision - or any accident for that matter - you need to call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC at (877) 278-6890 for a no-cost consultation.

Freeway Traffic Accidents
High speed accidents are horrific. Owing to the laws of physics, the faster you (or the opposing car) is going, the higher the chance for loss of vehicular control, damage, and/or personal injury when your vehicles collide. Even a tiny "tap" at high speed can lead to a disastrous consequence if it causes you to lose control of your car or truck. The seriousness of collisions on the freeway - and their significantly greater speeds - lead to more major collisions and consequently greater damage and insurance claims. To recover the highest settlement if you are involved with a freeway (or any) accident in the Sun Village, 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 consultation is absolutely free and carries no obligation, and you won't pay us anything unless we win your case and you receive a settlement.Death and life threatening injuries are often the consequence of highway accidents. Once again, due to the significant speeds and natural forces involved, the damage to vehicles and people is almost always greater than a "fender bender" on a residential street. The possible extent of highway accidents goes up when you take into account all of the large commercial transport trucks, commercial vehicles, semis, and tractor-trailers that seem to dominate the highways. Due to their body mass and lack of maneuverability, bigger trucks cannot stop as quickly or make tight turns without risking rollover. This condition is compounded at the more substantial speeds of highway traffic.Motorcycles are also problematic because they be inclined to "open up" their throttles when they get on the interstate, and they can seemingly appear from thin air.Regardless of whether it involves a truck, a motorcycle, or another passenger vehicle, freeway crashes are often disastrous, and you need support if you are to recuperate from the physical, emotional, financial, and psychological effects of your involvement.

Accidents Due to Weather Conditions
According to a 2019 report done by the Federal Highway Administration, about 21% of motor 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 traffic accidents kill more individuals annually than large-scale weather disasters.

It stands to reason that the worse the weather is, the more likely there will be negative effects on the road. According to Carsurance.net there are about 156,000 accidents annually due to icy roads. Unquestionably a contributing factor is that it takes 10 times longer to stop on snow and ice than it does on dry pavement (GEICO Insurance, 2018).
