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.
