Failure To Yield Accidents
The Bellovin Law Firm, PLLC in Tucson, Arizona
In Arizona, generally, a driver turning left who is turning in front of oncoming traffic traveling straight or a driver coming out of a parking lot or driveway must yield to oncoming traffic. They must wait their turn and only proceed when traffic is clear, and it is safe. Failure to do so violates Arizona traffic law and makes the driver failing to yield liable for injuries under Arizona’s civil negligence law. Traffic lights and their sequences can affect who must yield the right of way.
Lane Changes in Auto Accident Cases
Failure To Yield Accidents also involves lane changes and many other situations.
If there is a dispute as to who failed to yield, we look to witnesses and take statements promptly. If there are any cameras available at the location of the collision we obtain the footage of the collision.
Take Photos, File A Police Report And Obtain Medical Care
It is important, if you are able, to take photos of all vehicle damage to all vehicles involved.
It is also important to obtain the police report number and the at-fault driver’s name, address, insurance company name, and policy number and license plate, and driver’s license number.
It is extremely important to obtain medical care immediately.
