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.

During the aftermath of the car accident, you have probably had a lot of questions and concerns. Who is going to pay for my medical bills? How much time will I have to take off of work? How much compensation am I eligible for? Do I need a lawyer in order to get it? Here at Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers, we have an answer for those and any other questions that may arise.

The legal process can be very confusing and scary, and you shouldn’t be the one trying to navigate it. With an experienced professional by your side, the process will seem much more straightforward and simple, and you will feel more confident in the possibility of a possible outcome. Allow us to handle your case so that you can spend time recovering from your injuries. We promise to treat it with caution and care, and we will keep you in the loop the entire time. The attorneys of Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers will fight for what you deserve and will explain their decisions and reasoning to you so that you can have as little stress as possible in the aftermath of your accident.

When people go looking for a personal injury attorney, they almost always have never had to use one before, so they don’t know what to look for.

We are very proud of the results we have achieved as a firm, one of which was a car accident where we helped our clients gain over $2.3 million in compensation. We have also found success in dozens of other high-stakes cases, but despite the difference in payouts, we treat all of our clients with the same amount of respect regardless of their case.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a failure to yield accident?

A failure to yield accident occurs when the driver of one vehicle fails to yield the right-of-way to another vehicle when required by law. If someone fails to yield and causes an accident, they are liable for any damages that occur as a result of their recklessness.

How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer from Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers?

If you set up a consultation with us, we can discuss the idea of cost, but the important thing for you to know is that with Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers, we don’t get paid unless you do. That means that you don’t have to pay us anything until after you have won your compensation. We love the people of New Haven, and we don’t want inability to pay to deter you from asking a reckless driver to pay for the damages they caused. That’s why we operate the way we do– so that everyone involved, both attorneys, staff, and clients alike, get their payout at the same time. It keeps us invested in our cases, and it helps reassure you that we are taking our jobs very seriously.

What is a typical payout for a failure to yield accident?

Like most personal injury cases, compensation varies on a case by case basis. It can vary based on the severity of the damage, the severity of the injuries, and a number of other factors. Every car accident is different, but the amount that you are able to argue for can be greatly increased if you have the help of a skilled and experienced personal injury attorney who is ready to fight for you in the courtroom.
