Failure to Stop Accidents
Texas drivers are required to yield or stop for other drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists that have the right of way. As we know, that doesn’t always happen and can result in serious car accidents. If you were the victim of a failure to stop accident, also known as a failure to yield accident, you may face significant expenses after your accident. Our team of experienced auto accident lawyers are here to help you seek compensation after another driver causes a crash by failing to stop.
There are many types of accidents that may be considered failure to stop or yield the right of way. These types of car crashes are incredibly common and frequently occur at intersections with traffic lights or stop signs. For instance, drivers may run red lights or stop signs, or perform “rolling turns” rather than coming to a complete stop as the law requires. They may also occur at turning points in the road where the driver turning left must stop and yield to oncoming traffic. Failure to stop by a negligent driver often results in rear-end accidents and T-bone accidents which may cause serious injuries.
If a driver fails to stop and yield the right of way to you, there may be many reasons. For instance, the driver may be distracted or even just impatient. In some cases, they may not understand the right of way laws on the roads. Whatever the reason for their negligence, you can still seek compensation through their insurance policy or through a lawsuit if you were injured in a failure to stop accident.
