We have all seen it on the roadways. Drivers who treat stop signs as yield signs, and yield signs as if they are not even there. This type of driving infraction is called failure to yield, and sometimes it is the result of negligence.
People are in such a hurry these days to get where they need to go, and are not really worrying about the safety of themselves and the people around them. Or they are texting, and playing with the latest app on their cell phone. It's only a matter of time before this risky behavior catches up with them. Unfortunately victims of this type of careless driving are left in their wake.
Accidents as a result of failing to yield frequently lead to serious injuries, often including brain damage, broken bones, serious lacerations, and even death. Worst of all, the insurance companies for these negligent drivers are reluctant to pay for medical bills even though it is obvious who was at fault.
These types of accidents are all too common. They happen thousands of times a year, and cause millions of dollars worth of injuries in medical bills and property damage. Not to mention all of the pain and suffering that they cause to the victims.
