Accidents Involving Seniors
As mentioned in 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 increase beginning at age 75 and increase sharply after age 80. And while they determined that this is primarily due to an increased risk of injury and medical complications, not an increased risk of crashes, if they are driving the other car you may be at a greater risk. If you or a family member in the Ventura, 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 assessment and to talk about your possible remedies.It is well known that as we age we begin to lose many of our capabilities. Our hearing can decrease, as can our visual acuity, energy level, cognitive ability, and reflexes. The failure - or delayed ability - to react to a risk or high risk circumstance can be the difference between evading an accident completely or becoming part of the accident studies. With the advancement of enhanced medical technologies and the proper nutrition, people are living for a longer period and have more active lifestyles. As a result, there are more elderly motorists on the road, and thereby there are more accidents that involve older 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 Ventura, 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 take a look at your possible remedies.
Failure to Yield Accidents
People all over the Ventura, CA area "fail to yield" on a consistent basis, resulting in many accidents. "Failure to yield" is exactly what it appears to be: someone fails to yield the right of way to someone else, which results in an accident.Failure to yield accidents are quite common in Ventura, CA and commonly occur at intersections, with an inordinate amount of accidents due to left-hand turns. Failure to yield accidents also quite often occur at blinking red lights when a car or truck fails to make a complete stop, blinking yellow lights, and when drivers assertively merge onto freeways and/or when lanes merge.Whereas failure to yield accidents are typically more minor, they could still result in property damage and personal injury, which may result in loss of earnings because of lost time at work and disability. We've seen our share of failure to yield cases at Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC and have loads of experience trying these cases. Allow us to work for you if you need a legal professional who will fight for your legal rights to the fullest extent of the law. Call (877) 278-6890 today.
Texting While Driving Accidents
Texting driving is the worst possible thing you can do, and is not only hazardous, it is quite commonplace. 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 banished texting while driving, it still occurs, and it still can cause accidents on a regular 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 most definitely need to contact us. Our track record for taking care of Ventura, CA area drivers is excellent, and with the severe nature of this violation you need an advocate who is not only competent with texting while driving accidents, but more importantly, their litigation.
In 2018, 8.02% of US households owned motorcycles. (Motorcycle Industry Council, 2019)Even though motorcycles make up only 0.6% of all vehicle miles traveled, motorcycle drivers account for 14% of all traffic deaths and 17% of all occupant (driver and passenger) fatalities, (NHTSA, 2019) and while 20% of passenger vehicle crashes result in an injury or dying, 80% of motorcycle accidents account for personal injury or loss of life. Also, motorcyclist deaths were much more apt to happen in cities 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.Cyclists endure many of the same difficulties as motorcyclists, but at reduced speeds. Bicycles aren't as obvious as cars and/or trucks, they aren't as secure on two tires as a car or truck is on four wheels, and a collision including a bicycle has a high percent probability of leading to bodily trauma. 81% of pedestrian deaths in 2018 took place in urban areas, and 40% of pedestrian deaths among people 70+ in 2018 took place at intersections, compared to 22% for those younger than Age 70. (IIHS, 2019).If you were in an accident involving a bicycle, a jogger, or a motorcycle you are going to need to have a skilled attorney. You need Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC.

Teenage and Inexperienced Driver Accidents
As you can most likely imagine, the more practice anyone gets behind the wheel, the more self-assured they grow to be and the more comfortable driver they grow to be. Unfortunately, teenage and new drivers are forced to "practice" on the roads with the rest of us, and they often have a lot to learn! A 2019 Texas A&M Transportation Institute study concluded that Teens are more inclined to violate the speed limit and tailgate than seasoned drivers. That same report found that Teens normally do not 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 representation in speed related fatalities (32% and 22%) in contrast to any other age group in 2016, and that speeding was a factor in 31% of Teen driver deaths. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) found that per mile driven, teen drivers ages 16 to 19 are nearly 3 times more likely to be in a deadly crash than drivers aged 20 and older, and that car crashes are the primary cause of loss of life for US teens.Granted, no one starts as an excellent driver; every one of us needed practice, and some of us are still learning! But Teens who do not have practical experience are definitely more vulnerable to getting into car accidents. In spite of all of the statistics indicating that Teen drivers can make a handful of mediocre decisions, the hard truth is that they are on the road with us, and their performance affects you and your loved ones.If you or someone you know has been involved with an accident which involves a teen or new/unskilled driver, you need to contact Law Offices of John C.

Emergency Vehicle Accidents
Sadly, men and women responding to auto accidents are also subject to collisions of their own. In 2018, 168 people were killed in accidents involving emergency vehicles. The bulk of these fatalities were occupants of non-emergency vehicles (56%); deaths 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 some place very quickly, crashes can occur. If you or a loved one were hurt in an accident involving an ambulance, police car, firetruck, or other emergency vehicle, our law firm, Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC can assist you. 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 collisions; tow trucks for example. While you may very well think of tow trucks as the people who make an appearance to help to clear away the consequences of a crash or assist an disabled vehicle, accidents involving tow trucks occur more often than you would expect, and can cause significant physical damage to vehicles, together with serious personal injury to individuals. Like large over-the-road commercial transport trucks (semi-trucks, 18 wheelers, etc.) tow trucks are big, bulky, quite heavy and not very agile. Their size and decrease in mobility play a role in the damage they can do, and when you add a towed-vehicle into the situation you increase the chances of accidents even further.Department of Transportation cars and trucks and other service vehicles (tow trucks, power company trucks, freeway repairs and maintenance trucks, etc.) are all around you, and yet we tend not to notice them as much because we are so acquainted with seeing them. The fact is, however, that they are heavy, on the move, and can present hazards on the roads.You should call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC as soon as possible at (877) 278-6890 if you are involved with an accident with a business vehicle.
