  • 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
