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
  • Contact a Car Accident Attorney

Morgan and Morgan is truly the best law firm! PERIOD! You could consider yourself blessed when they take your case. Immediately, you can breathe. Anxiety goes from a 10 to 0! I needed them 3 TIMES! I wish I didn’t have to hire an attorney but my family and I were blessed. We won every single time! Insurance companies truly know that they will take it to court! I got settlements for all 3 lawsuits. Never stepped a foot into a courtroom. Thank you so much Morgan & Morgan!
