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.

Under Florida law, all drivers are required to yield the right of way to:

  • Pedestrians
  • 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. Find out if you have a case and how much it might be worth by scheduling a free consultation with our law firm today.

We also help families of victims killed in fatal car accidents pursue wrongful death claims.

What if the other driver was ticketed for failure to yield?

If police give another driver a citation for failure to grant the right of way, this will serve as a powerful piece of evidence when building your case. It means the investigating officer determined the other person was at least partially at fault for your accident since they broke the law.

Even if the other driver was ticketed, you might still run into hurdles during the claims process. Tampa car accident attorney Armando Edmiston can handle every aspect of your claim and aggressively advocate for your best interests so that you can get the compensation you’re entitled to. One thing to note is that 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 does not mean the insurance company will not be giving you a hard time.
