Failure-to-Yield Car Accidents
Failure-to-yield car accidents are common in Atlanta and throughout Georgia -- and can take place in many different circumstances. Often they are the result of a driver not following the rules of the road, not knowing the rules of the road or simply being negligent or reckless in driving.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration notes that failure-to-yield car accidents often occur at stop signs and traffic lights. These accidents are sometimes fatal.
There are many other circumstances in which a failure-to-yield can cause a major and serious collision. These auto crashes always involve one driver failing to observe the need to yield to another vehicle, pedestrian or bicyclist. The failure-to-yield auto accident can range widely from the failure-to-yield to oncoming traffic when making a left turn at an intersection, to the failure-to-yield when a pedestrian is in a cross walk or a failure-to-yield when entering a highway.
Motorcyclists know that intersections are the most dangerous part of the road for them and their safety. Many accidents occur when vehicles fail to yield to an oncoming motorcycle. The result can be catastrophic injury or fatal injury.
Atlanta car accident lawyer Charles Scholle has over two decades of experience handling the cases of those who have been injured or harmed by another motorist’s failure-to-yield in many different roadways and street conditions. In failure-to-yield car accidents, if there are no other witnesses other than two drivers for example, establishing the fault of the non-yielding driver is critically important and often challenging. In many cases, this is key to the recovery for injured victims and their families.
Injured victims turn to The Law Office of Scholle Law, for the help they need because they know they can rely on his expertise and knowledge. It is important that injured victims have the best advocate they can retain for the very important job of putting together the evidence to establish that the failure-to-yield was the cause of a crash and injury.
One of the most important aspects in recovery from any truck, car or motorcycle crash involving a failure-to-yield is to hire a lawyer capable of properly gathering the facts and establishing the fault of the negligent or reckless driver.
Without some sort of conclusive evidence of the incident that makes the cause indisputable, the statements and/or testimony of the drivers involved may become an issue of credibility in litigating these cases. Sometimes there are enough witnesses who have seen the failure-to-yield crash to report a consistent story that shows the party at fault did in fact fail to yield.
Determining failure-to-yield might require the work on an accident reconstruction expert who can put together information and determine what happened in any given accident. Hiring the right expert witnesses in these cases takes the understanding and assessment ability of a very skilled lawyer.
