Failure to Yield Driving Accidents
Drivers who fail to yield cause many of the accidents on Indiana’s roads. These drivers not only endanger other vehicles but also themselves.
If you have been struck by a driver who failed to yield, you should know that you might receive compensation in a settlement. Indiana law requires that drivers follow the rules of the road, and failing to yield is a pretty clear violation. Meet with a Fort Wayne car accident attorney at Delventhal Law Office to discuss your case today.
Why Do Some Fail to Yield?
There are many reasons that motorists don’t follow the rules of the road, such as:
- Some motorists might be unaware of the rules. If two vehicles stop at a rural intersection, do you know which vehicle should yield?
- Some motorists are distracted reading a text message or talking on a telephone and therefore fail to yield.
- Some motorists are intoxicated or high and engage in risky behavior.
- Other drivers are in a rush and will try to sneak through an intersection or turn quickly when they shouldn’t because they are running behind schedule.
Whatever the reason, a driver who fails to yield is behaving irresponsibly on the road and needs to be held accountable when they cause injuries.
