Automobile Injury Cases
Failure to yield the right of way is a major cause of auto versus auto collisions. The legal requirement to yield the right of way is noted in N.J.S.A. 39:4-90, which states, in part, that a failure to yield the right of way is a traffic offense. Injuries sustained in a failure to yield collision are usually more severe than in other types of auto accidents.
Failure to yield the right of way at an intersection can result in a side impact, or T-Bone collision. T-Bone accidents are worse because the sides of most vehicles are not as well protected as the front or rear of vehicles, and occupants of the vehicle are much more vulnerable to injury.
Failure to yield accidents also occur when one vehicle is merging onto a highway or freeway, and collides with another vehicle which is traveling at a high rate of speed, or highway speed. These sideswipe accidents knock the vehicle struck into other lanes of traffic, or worse, cause the vehicle struck to roll over. Roll-over accidents have one of the highest death or serious injury rates among all car crashes.
