Failure to Yield Accidents
What is a "failure to yield" accident? Any accident in which a driver fails to give (yield) the road to the party that has the right of way is considered a failure to yield accident. Some examples of Missouri failure to yield accidents include:
- Failing to yield to oncoming traffic when making a left turn
- Failing to yield the road to an emergency vehicle (such as a fire truck, police car or ambulance) when lights and /or sirens are engaged.
- Failing to stop at a stop sign and remaining stopped until the driver that has the right of way is clear of vehicles
- Failing to yield to a bicycle when making a right turn when bicycle has right of way
- Failing to yield to a pedestrian when the pedestrian has the right of way
- Failing to yield to cross traffic at a flashing yellow or red light
- Pulling out onto a road from a side street, private drive, or parking lot when the main road traffic has the right of way
- Failing to yield the right of way when merging onto a highway
These are just a few examples of situations that may cause a failure to yield accident in Missouri. The critical issue in most Missouri failure to yield accidents is usually who had the right of way when the accident occurred.
Protect Your Rights
If you or someone you love have been injured or killed in a Missouri failure to yield accident, and the accident was not your fault and/or you had the right of way, you may have certain rights to compensation or to recover monies for injuries, property damage, missed work, medical bills, brain injury, disability, or the death of a family member. Aaron Sachs and Associates' failure to yield accident attorneys* may be able to offer legal assistance and help protect your rights in the event of a Missouri failure to yield accident.
Failure to Yield Accidents Can Be Complicated Cases
Unlike other accidents where very often the party that got hit is also the accident victim, with a failure to yield accident in Missouri, the victim is often (but certainly not always) the vehicle that had the right of way and couldn't help but hit the vehicle that failed to yield. Despite this, attorneys or insurance adjusters for the party that failed to yield may try to get you to waive (give up) your rights or to make an unfair settlement. Please keep in mind that insurance adjusters and attorneys for the other party do not have your best interests at heart. They may even try to scare you into thinking that because you hit their client; you were at fault in the accident. Therefore, it is very important that, in the event of a failure to yield accident, you ensure that your interests are properly represented and your rights are protected.
