In 2020 alone, more than 60,000 people were injured in car accidents in Michigan. Were a few of these drivers less than alert to others on the road? No matter what causes a need to yield, a responsible driver will notice and give right of way when necessary. However, if another motorist failed to yield and caused an accident that hurt you or your loved ones or your property, you may have a personal injury case on your hands.

Common Factors in Failure to Yield Accidents

Failure to yield causes many serious accidents every year. The Insurance Information Institute reported that in 2019, drivers failing to yield caused 3,728 fatal motor vehicle accidents nationwide. 

This driving behavior is the fourth-most common cause of fatal accidents in the country. These failure to yield accidents are particularly tragic because they are preventable. It all depends on following the necessary traffic laws and giving the right of way to other drivers. 

The types of failure to yield accidents we frequently see are:

  • Failure to yield at traffic lights
  • Failure to yield at a stop sign or unmarked intersection
  • Failure to obey other road signs
  • Failure to give way to oncoming traffic when turning left
  • Failure to yield to merging traffic
  • Failure to give right of way to pedestrians
  • Failure to yield for emergency vehicles

These are some instances where the failure to wait for other drivers or to give right of way can lead to severe collisions. Were you struck by a negligent driver who failed to give you the legal right of way, either as a pedestrian or as another driver? You may have a case against that person for what you have suffered due to his or her traffic violations. 

Among drivers who fail to yield, we see some common contributions to their dangerous behavior. Some of these include illegal activities such as texting and driving, checking other electronic devices, and using alcohol or drugs. All Michigan drivers have a duty to be on the lookout for hazards, according to traffic laws, but being impaired or distracted can affect a driver’s ability to safely manage road conditions. 

In some cases, a driver’s inexperience can cause him or her to fail to give the right of way when necessary. On the other hand, when a vehicle malfunctions, the driver may be unable to yield. If this malfunction was caused by a lack of vehicle maintenance, the driver may be found liable for the consequences. If your Michigan failure to yield traffic accident was caused by one of these factors, or another, you should contact a lawyer who can help.

The experienced attorneys at Mike Morse Law Firm are dedicated to helping each Michigan client to get maximum compensation for negligent driving collisions. We can give you the assistance you need to get through this challenging time, and we offer a patient, listening ear. All the while, we will tenaciously and tirelessly investigate the facts to get you the best possible outcome when we take on your case. 

Injuries Often Sustained in Michigan Crashes

Every kind of car accident can have serious consequences, and failure to yield collisions are no different. The emotional and physical toll, as well as dealing with loss of property and days away from work, can cause many to feel overwhelmed. 

A failure to yield accident can often come out of nowhere. Some of the common injuries we see in these traffic violations cases include:

These, and many more, are physical consequences of a failure to yield accident.

What You Could Recover for Your Michigan Failure to Yield Auto Accident Case

The economic damages of a failure to yield auto accident can be severe. That’s why, if your case was caused by the actions of a negligent driver, you should receive compensation for what you’ve suffered. 

In most cases, accident victims may be eligible to recover damages for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering

Receiving compensation for some of these non-economic damages requires a specific set of circumstances. 

According to Michigan law, you may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering if your failure to yield accident meets the following requirements:

  1. The other driver was more than 50 percent at fault for the accident
  2. You suffer a serious impairment or disfigurement
  3. You did not intentionally cause the accident
  4. You were insured at the time of the accident

If you are unsure whether your accident meets these requirements, you should speak to a legal professional. When you consult Mike Morse Law Firm, there is no obligation and there are no fees.
