Failure to Yield Is a Common Cause of Fatal Accidents
The Insurance Information Institute reports that failure to yield right of way caused about 7% of all fatal traffic collisions in the United States in 2018. Failure to yield often results in T-bone accidents, which are side-impact collisions that can be especially dangerous.
In side-impact collisions, one vehicle may impact the door of another. The driver or passenger sitting in the position hit may only be a few inches from the impact. While many modern cars do have side-impact airbags and other safety features, this type of accident still lacks many of the protections available in other types of accidents. Side-impact collisions can lead to serious injuries and even fatalities.
Drivers have an obligation to stop and yield the right of way when turning, pulling out, and in other situations. When they fail to do so, an accident may occur. If this happened to you, or if driver negligence of any form caused your accident, Bader Scott Injury Lawyers can review your case for free. Call (404) 888-8888 now to discuss your case and your legal options with a member of our team.
