Failure to Yield Accident Lawyers

Every driver has a responsibility to obey traffic laws. This includes yielding to motorists and pedestrians who have the right of way. Unfortunately, some drivers don’t follow the rules of the road. As a result, they endanger everyone in their vicinity.

Failure-to-yield collisions are among the most common types of auto accidents. Even relatively minor impacts can result in significant property damage and medical expenses. At Morgan & Morgan, our highly skilled attorneys fight on behalf of the victims in these accidents, helping them secure financial compensation while they focus on recovering. Here’s what you need to know about failure-to-yield car accidents.

  • What Is Failure to Yield?

    Yielding means waiting for another driver, motorcyclist, bicyclist, or pedestrian to proceed when they have the right of way or the legal right to move forward with precedence over others. There are a variety of situations in which drivers must yield the right of way. For example, a vehicle making a left turn at an intersection is required to yield to oncoming traffic.

    A driver who fails to yield has broken a traffic law and can be ticketed. In some cases, a driver’s failure to yield may result in an accident, in which case the driver is legally responsible for any injuries and damages.

  • What Are Some Examples of Failing to Yield?

    Some examples of failing to yield the right of way include:

    •     Not allowing oncoming traffic the right of way when turning left
    •     Failing to yield to children entering a crosswalk in a marked school zone
    •     Not coming to a full stop at a stop sign and remaining stopped until a right-of-way motorist has passed
    •     Failing to yield to an ambulance, fire truck, or other emergency vehicle
    •     Not yielding to bicyclists who have the right of way when turning right
    •     Failing to yield to pedestrians who have the right of way in a crosswalk
    •     Not yielding at a flashing red or yellow light
    •     Failing to yield while merging onto a major road
  • What Injuries Can Occur Due to Failure-to-Yield Collisions?

    Failure-to-yield auto accidents often lead to serious and lasting injuries for the driver, passengers, and other parties involved. Although the severity of the injury will depend on the circumstances surrounding the accident, common ailments include:

    •     Traumatic brain injuries
    •     Fractured bones
    •     Whiplash
    •     Spinal cord injuries
  • What Damages Are Available to Accident Victims?

    A person who is injured due to another driver’s negligence can sue the responsible party for financial compensation including medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and out-of-pocket expenses. Morgan & Morgan attorneys:

    •     Gather documentation, including medical records and hospital bills, to begin building a case for compensation
    •     Investigate the accident by collecting police reports, witness statements, and other pertinent evidence
    •     Negotiate a fair settlement or, if the defendant is unwilling to negotiate fairly, present your case in the strongest possible terms at trial

Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.
Georgia J.
General Injury
It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.
Antonia C.
Slip and Fall
I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.
Todd E.
Homeowners Insurance
I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
