Failure to Yield Accident

Human error causes most car accidents. Weather conditions and unavoidable circumstances may cause some collisions, but negligent drivers cause a startling number of car accidents. Goldblatt + Singer has a car accident lawyer ready to help you get the compensation you deserve when someone else is in the wrong.

One of the most common preventable accidents is caused by a driver’s failure to yield. The “right of way” laws help motorists avoid accidents by answering the question, “Who should go first?” It is important to understand who has the right of way since any confusion can lead to an accident. Find out the impact of not understanding the failure-to-yield law below:

  • Department of Transportation (DOT) reports failure-to-yield accidents are 2.6 times more likely to occur at stop signs than traffic signals.
  • It’s statistically more likely for a failure-to-yield accident to occur while a car is making a left-hand turn as opposed to a car going straight.
  • There are anywhere from 800 to 1,000 fatal multi-vehicle failure-to-yield crashes in the United States each year.
