Failure-to-Yield Car Accidents
With so many vehicles on the road at any given moment, cooperation and safety-oriented driving is essential to lessen the likelihood of dangerous accidents. In some situations, this cooperation requires motorists to yield the right-of-way to others. However, many drivers do not see yielding as an important facet of their own driving and routinely fail to yield right-of-way, leading to not only disrupted traffic flow, but also an increased risk for a car accident that could have been altogether avoided by observing posted traffic signs.
If you have been hurt in a car accident caused by a driver who did not yield when he or she was supposed to do so, legal action may be appropriate.

Types of Accidents Associated with a Failure to Yield
Drivers are required to yield in various situations, most often when entering and exiting busy highways. When a driver refuses to yield the right-of-way to another driver who has a right to it, the following types of accidents may occur:
- Side-swiping (vehicles make side to side contact)
- T-boning (one vehicle drives perpendicularly into the other)
- Being rear-ended
- Rear-ending someone
- Head-on collisions
- Pedestrian accidents
In situations like these, injuries and damages are often significant. Victims, therefore, are likely to require extensive and costly medical care for which they should not bear financial responsibility. A successful legal action can help to ensure that they do not.
