New Haven Failing to Yield Car Accident Attorneys

Failing to yield to another vehicle, cyclist, or pedestrian is a common driver error that leads to accidents. When we drive, we do our best to follow the rules of the road. Respecting the right-of-way of other drivers reduces the likelihood of car accidents happening. However, 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 should not are just a few examples of reckless driving. There should be consequences for reckless drivers to deter them from behaving that way in the future. The best way for them to learn this lesson is to have them pay for the damages, which can include medical bills, pain and suffering, time off work, and more. If you were injured by a reckless driver who failed to yield, schedule a free consultation with the car accident attorneys of Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers by calling (203) 397-1283.

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.

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?

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.

It keeps us invested in our cases, and it helps reassure you that we are taking our jobs 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. No two car accident cases are exactly alike.
