What is Failure-to-Yield?
Failure to yield happens under different circumstances, but one thing is shared: the truck driver fails to obey the rules of the road. These basic rules are there to keep motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians safe and are the duty of care a trucker owes others.
This negligence is able to be used to establish cause. Our attorneys at Isaacs & Isaacs will show how this ended in injury to a victim and resulted in financial loss.
Where Does Failure to Yield Occur?
Failure to yield occurs most commonly at intersections, but it can occur when a big truck is pulling out of a parking area into traffic or changing lanes. In all cases, the trucker is obligated to adequately judge the time and space needed.
Sometimes this effort is simply ignored, figuring that motorists will slow down. In other cases, the trucker may not be properly trained or experienced to make this decision.
