Enforcing Your Right-of-Way
Refusing to yield is a large problem on the road despite clear rules regarding who has right-of-way. Many drivers simply won’t yield to other motorists, even if they do not have the legal right-of-way. Sometimes, this reckless behavior can cause serious car accidents, which could result in injuries for you or someone you love.
If you or someone you care about has suffered from a car accident because another driver refused to yield right-of-way, there are steps that you can take to hold the careless driver financially responsible for his or her actions.

When Do You Have Right-of-Way?
Although traffic signs are often posted to help people understand who should yield to whom, it may be difficult to always know when you have the right-of-way. In the following cases, other drivers should generally yield to you:
- You are on a highway and the other driver is merging onto the road
- You reach an all-way stop first
- You have a protected left turn signal
- There is a posted “yield” sign for the traffic coming in the other direction
In these instances, you typically have the right-of-way, and other drivers should respect that law. However, many don’t, and they subsequently cause dangerous car accidents.
If you or someone you know has been in a car accident because of another driver’s failure to yield, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering.
