Failure to Yield Accident

Car accidents happen all the time, each and every day in Boston. With narrow streets, and with large numbers of vehicles and heavy traffic, car accidents are quite common here in our city. Failure to yield causes many of these accidents to occur. Essentially failing to yield means not allowing another vehicle to proceed that had the right of way. Car accidents caused by this type of negligence make up a large portion of car crashes. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, roughly 7% of all fatal car accidents result from failure to yield situations. As a Boston failure to yield car accident lawyer, I have had many clients over the years injured in one of these accidents.

Examples of Failing to Yield The Right of Way

Essentially failing to yield means not allowing another vehicle to proceed that had the right of way. These crashes may occur inside a rotary when one vehicle negligently enters the rotary and fails to yield to another vehicle that had the right of way. Or, these accidents can happen at intersections and stop signs. By failing to come to a complete stop and yielding the right of way to oncoming traffic, this can result in a negligently caused accident. Sometimes these accidents are rear-end crashes, and sometimes they can be caused by distraction. Whatever the case, if someone fails to properly yield, they can be held liable for their conduct when someone is injured as a result.

Available Compensation From Failing to Yield Accident Cases

If you were the victim of one of these types of motor vehicle accidents, you have legal options. You may pursue a claim for compensation against the at-fault driver. This claim would be filed with the car insurance company that insures the vehicle that caused the accident. This would be a claim for all losses, or damages caused by the accident. This would include payment for medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, and all other damages sustained. If the claim does not settle though negotiation, then a lawsuit would be filed and discovery would be conducted. If the case still does not settle through the litigation process, then a trial in front of a judge and jury would become necessary.

Advantages of Working With a Lawyer

These cases are best handled when legal representation is hired.
