Failure To Yield Car Accidents Encompass Many Types Of Situations

Every day, there are numerous failures to yield on Massachusetts roads. Unfortunately, these can—and have—resulted in very serious, and sometimes fatal, car accidents. Injuries such as broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, concussion, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, and numerous soft tissue injuries following failure to yield accidents have severely altered the lives of many victims and their families. Failures to yield the right of way occur in numerous instances, but most often:

  • Failing to yield when a car is making a left-turn at an intersection
  • Failing to yield before merging into another traffic lane
  • Failing to yield to a pedestrian or a bicyclist, especially at a crosswalk
  • Failing to yield at a flashing traffic light
  • Failing to yield entering or exiting a parking lot or private driveway
At-Fault Drivers Are Often Reluctant To Admit Liability

When failure-to-yield accidents occur, it is imperative to launch a thorough and swift investigation. Many times, liable drivers, their lawyers, and insurance companies will not admit they were actually at-fault. Sometimes, the party that is actually at-fault for the accident is struck by the victim's vehicle, creating a confusing and complex situation for responding police officers and other investigators. Insurance companies of liable drivers may try to exploit this situation to get their insured "off the hook" for the accident.

Talk To Us Before Speaking With Any Insurance Company

It is important to never admit fault following a failure to yield car accident, even if you believe you may be liable. Any statement made to an insurance company, even if made innocently or nervously, can be used to damage your case. Instead, you should try to record the facts of the accident as completely as possible, including taking photographs of the scene and the vehicle if at all possible. Next, you should receive any medical care you think necessary, including a thorough examination after the incident to rule out any injuries that are not immediately apparent. Finally, you should contact one of our experience Boston car accident attorneys at Bellotti Law Group, who will examine your accident, hold at-fault drivers accountable for their negligence, and get you fair and full compensation for your damages.
