Failure to Yield
Many motor vehicle accidents in Pennsylvania are the result of a driver not recognizing or failing to give right of way to another motorist. Some examples of collisions that occur because one driver fails to yield may include:
- Bicycles or pedestrians
- Emergency vehicles
- Left turns into oncoming traffic
- Merging on highways
- Pulling out of parking lots or private drives
- Stop signs or traffic lights
When a motorist does not stop for a bicyclist, pedestrian, or other driver who has the right of way, it can result in a devastating collision. These types of crashes can cause very severe injuries for innocent victims, including head, brain, neck, or spinal cord injuries that involve months, years, or even entire lifetimes of rehabilitation.
All motorists in Pennsylvania are expected to abide by the rules of the road. When a driver causes an accident by not yielding to another motorist who has the right away, the negligent driver can be liable for all financial damages that any victims suffer.
Any person who has been injured in one of these types of accidents will often have to file a claim against the negligent driver’s insurance company. At first, any agents, adjusters, or representatives from the insurance company may act friendly and claim that they just want to help the victims recover. However, they might then offer a lump sum settlement that is much less than what victims need or deserve, In some cases, insurance companies may decline to offer any compensation at all, claiming that victims either contributed to their injuries through their own negligence or certain injuries were pre-existing conditions.
