Failure to Yield Accident Lawyers

Posted on behalf of Harbin & Burnett on Aug 28, 2015 in Auto Accidents

Right of way accidentsDefensive driving is critical whenever you are behind the wheel. Not only does failing to yield create a danger for others on the roadway, but it also creates a hazard to pedestrians and bicyclists. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, there were 767 people who were killed in traffic accidents in South Carolina in 2013. 

Failing to yield

Aside from rear-end auto collisions, failure to yield accidents are the most common on our roadways. They ordinarily involve some type of a violation of South Carolina traffic laws. Sometimes the driver who failed to yield never even saw the other vehicle, particularly if it was a motorcycle.

These types of crashes occur in many ways that include, but are not limited to:

  • Approaching an intersection
  • Turning left
  • Entering a highway or roadway
  • At stop signs

You can seek compensation

If you are in an auto collision and your injuries result from a driver's failure to yield, that driver's omission might constitute negligence, and you might be entitled to compensation.

However, you need to act quickly so an investigation can begin surrounding the circumstances of the collision. You do not want to put the insurer of the other party in control of the case. Compensation can include medical bills, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and in the case of severe injuries, any permanent disability or disfigurement.

Failure to yield cases are complicated easily. If you or somebody close to you have been injured in a failure to yield collision, you want a highly experienced auto accident injury lawyer.
