A failure to yield accident is when one driver does not allow for the driver with the right of way to have the road, or to act first. If you drive, you encounter dozens of situations each day that require you to yield to other drivers. Traffic laws can be confusing at times regarding who has the right of way in a given situation. Below are just a few examples of common situations that require one driver to yield to another:
- Making a left turn onto a busy road;
- Remaining at a stop sign long enough for other drivers to clear the intersection;
- Merging from an onramp onto the highway;
- Pulling over to the side of a road for an emergency vehicle;
- Entering into a traffic circle;
- Sharing the road with bicyclists;
- Pulling out from a parking lot or private driveway;
- Giving a pedestrian enough time to cross the street.
When one driver fails to yield to another driver with the right of way, serious accidents can result. In these cases, the innocent driver who had the right of way has the right to recover damages from the driver who failed to yield. Generally speaking, the most important question in a failure to yield accident is who had the right of way. A good failure to yield accident attorney in the Fort Worth area can prove this with eyewitness statements, police officer testimony, photographs, and accident reconstruction.Have You Been Involved in a Failure to Yield Accident in the Dallas or Fort Worth Area?
