Lawyer for Failure to Yield Accidents
Tampa attorney Armando Edmiston knows how to prove negligence
When another driver does not slow down or stop to grant the right of way to other vehicles or pedestrians when they’re supposed to, the result can be a failure to yield accident, which is one of the more common types of car accidents. Frequent at intersections, stop signs, traffic lights and when merging into traffic, failure to yield accidents can result in serious and potentially fatal injuries.
If you were hit and injured by a driver who failed to yield or grant you the right of way, you shouldn’t have to pay for expenses from a car accident that was not your fault. Unfortunately, getting appropriate compensation from the insurance company isn’t always as easy as it should be. In an effort to avoid paying you more, the insurance company may question the severity of your injuries or claim you’re at least partially to blame for the accident.
Under Florida law, all drivers are required to yield the right of way to:
- Road/Highway workers
- Buses traveling in the same direction and signaling they are about to re-enter traffic
- Oncoming traffic when turning left
- Other vehicles that have entered an intersection when approaching that intersection
- The driver of the vehicle on their left when entering an intersection at the same time
- Oncoming traffic when entering a public roadway without a traffic signal
- Oncoming traffic when approaching a yield sign
Whether the other person was texting while driving, drunk driving, speeding, or was asleep at the wheel, it’s important to move fast to keep your legal options open and protect your rights. You may be entitled to a significant financial recovery, including compensation for all your medical expenses and lost wages from time missed from work.

What if the other driver was ticketed for failure to yield?
Even if the other driver was ticketed, you might still run into hurdles during the claims process. That’s because a traffic citation is not admissible in a car accident case against the other party. The jury always determines fault unless one side admits it. Just because the other side was cited doesn’t mean the insurance company won’t give you a hard time.
