New Haven Failing to Yield Car Accident Attorneys
Failing to yield to another vehicle, cyclist, or pedestrian is one of the most common driver errors that lead to car accidents. When we drive, we do our best to follow the rules of the road. We respect the right of way of other drivers, and that prevents car accidents from happening. When another driver fails to yield, which often happens because they are in a hurry, they put lives and property at risk. Barreling through intersections and merging when you shouldn’t are examples of reckless driving, and there should be consequences for reckless drivers to deter them from behaving the same way in the future. The best way for them to learn this lesson is by having to pay for the damages, which can include both property and medical bills, as well as pain and suffering, time off work, and more. If you or a loved one was injured by a reckless driver who failed to yield, contact the experienced car accident attorneys of Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers at (203) 397-1283 or through the live chat feature on our website to set up a free consultation.
Why you need a lawyer
If you were injured in a car accident because another driver failed to yield to you, don’t let them get away without paying for the damages. They made a reckless mistake that negatively impacted a person’s life, and it shouldn’t be on you to pick up the pieces. As an injured victim of a car accident, you could be entitled to compensation for everything from your damaged property to physical therapy, long-term care, and more. However, it can be difficult to prove how much compensation your injuries are worth without an attorney present. Experienced failing to yield car accident attorneys know how to analyze a situation logically and fight for you as an individual to come out victorious over the person who hurt you. Having a personal injury lawyer on your side greatly improves your odds of getting the full compensation you deserve.

Cases We Handle
We will take on almost any client who was in a car accident because someone else failed to yield. It is unfair for you to have to pay for the damages and medical costs for an incident that you did not cause. Something that is important to note about failure to yield accidents is that they often appear different from other accidents. This is because when one driver fails to yield, it often leads to someone else hitting them, rather than the other way around. This is another reason why it is important to have an experienced lawyer on your side– you don’t want the other driver to blame you for an accident that they caused.
