When you head out on the road, you expect that other drivers will exercise caution and obey traffic laws. Unfortunately, this isn't always the case. Drivers who fail to yield the right of way are often negligent or aggressive drivers who endanger everyone on the road. Failure to yield accidents happen often and can lead to devastating injuries to other drivers and passengers, pedestrians, and bicyclists.
If you have been injured in an auto accident caused by another drivers failure to yield, you need Stephens, Anderson, & Cummings on your side. Our seasoned auto accident attorneys will fight to get you the compensation you deserve. For years, we have been helping our clients recover maximum injury compensation.
What is Failure to Yield?
Drivers must yield to drivers who have the right of way, allowing that driver to act first. The following traffic situations are ones that require drivers to yield, allowing the driver who has the right away to have the road and act first:
- Turning left onto a crowded road
- Coming to a stop sign, stoplight, or flashing red light
- Allowing other drivers to clear an intersection before you enter
- Merging onto a highway or other roadway
- Entering a round about
- Exiting your driveway or a parking lot
- Yielding to bicyclists and pedestrians
- Yielding to emergency response vehicles
In the case of a failure to yield crash, you can determine who should be held liable by first identifying who had the right of way. Once this is established, liability can be clearly assigned to the party who failed to honor the right of way.
Your auto accident attorney will work to prove the at-fault drivers liability by gathering witness testimony, accounts from law enforcement, photos from the scene, and other evidence. Establishing who is at-fault can be simplified if the responding law enforcement officer issued a citation for the traffic offense.
