When a Driver Does Not Yield the Right of Way

You or a loved one was hurt in a car accident. When you got the police report, you saw that the other driver was cited for failure to yield. This is a likely sign that the driver was negligent, and you will be able to seek compensation by filing a personal injury claim. The Cincinnati attorneys at Rittgers Rittgers & Nakajima are here to help you get the money to which you are entitled.

Our Cincinnati attorneys have more than 30 years of experience holding negligent drivers accountable for causing failure to yield car accidents. Our efforts have led to millions of dollars in compensation for people like you. We encourage you to discuss your case with us immediately.

What exactly does failure to yield mean? It means that the negligent driver failed to provide the victim the right of way as required by law. For example, at an intersection, a driver taking a left turn must yield to oncoming traffic. Similarly, a driver taking a right turn into traffic from a stop sign or red light must wait for a clear opportunity, because traffic with a green light or no stop sign has the right of way. Unfortunately, failure to yield is one of the most common causes of traffic accidents in Ohio.

Failure to yield may be tied to distracted driving. When our lawyers investigate these cases, we frequently find that the negligent driver failed to yield because he or she was using a cellphone or otherwise not paying attention to the road. We hold negligent drivers accountable.
