Failure to Yield
There are few things more frustrating than being personally affected by someone else’s negligence. Causing an auto accident is among the leading ways that someone else can turn your life upside down, and one of the most common forms of negligence in auto accidents is a failure to yield.
Of course, the consequences of an auto accident go far beyond frustration. A serious accident-related injury can impact virtually all aspects of your daily life. From being unable to work to suffering through constant pain while you watch your medical bills pile up, there are plenty of reasons to fight for the compensation you deserve – and our experienced auto accident lawyers in Denver can help you.
Distracted Driving: A Leading Cause of Failure-to-Yield Accidents
While speeding, inattentiveness, alcohol impairment and numerous other issues can lead to failure-to-yield accidents, an increasingly-common factor in these dangerous collisions is distracted driving. If a driver is talking on the phone, texting, taking selfies or using social media, this means that he or she is not paying attention to the road. When investigating a failure-to-yield accident, if it appears that the at-fault driver may have been distracted at the time of the crash, we can request phone records and search his or her social media accounts to find evidence that supports your claim for compensation.
Common Injuries in Failure-to-Yield Accidents
Whether they occur at traffic signals, stop signs, yield signs or in highway merge lanes, failure-to-yield accidents tend to involve vehicles that are traveling at a high rate of speed. As a result, they typically produce serious injuries, which often require surgery and long-term treatment or recovery. This includes injuries such as:
- Bone fractures
- Brain injuries
- Loss of limbs
- Neck injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
When we take your case, one of the top priorities will be to make sure that you receive the compensation you need not only for your current medical bills but for your future medical bills as well. We can also seek compensation for your future loss of income (if you need to change jobs or are unable to return to work), pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and other anticipated losses.
