When drivers are instructed to slow down or stop at an intersection or another area where traffic merges, they are supposed to give other vehicles the right of way. State traffic laws are designed to prevent accidents, but if drivers fail to adhere to the rules of the road and do not yield to others when directed, the result can be disastrous. If you were involved in a collision because someone else failed to give you the right of way, you may need the help of a Haddonfield failure to yield accident lawyer to help you deal with the aftermath. Reach out to a dedicated auto collision attorney for assistance with taking legal action against a negligent driver.
Most intersections are controlled with traffic lights, with a designated left turn signal and even one for right turns on busier roads. When a left turn signal flashes yellow or a green arrow turns into a solid green, this indicates to those turning to yield to oncoming traffic. When drivers do not obey these yield signals, they can collide with oncoming traffic or cause oncoming drivers to swerve and hit other cars or stationary objects. These accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. For the victims of these accidents, an attorney could help gather the right evidence to prove another driver’s liability.
When multiple cars arrive at a two- or four-way stop, the rules of yielding are a little simpler. The first to arrive and stop is the first to pass through the intersection. When multiple cars arrive at the same time, you are supposed to yield to the car on your right. When a driver fails to yield to others or fails to stop at all, the consequences can be catastrophic.
When most drivers hear the word yield, they think of the red and white sign that they see when they are getting on or off a highway. It may say “yield to highway traffic” or some variation. These signs are meant to help prevent cars coming off the highway at high speeds from hitting those already on the access road or ramp who are traveling at much lower speeds. Unlike traffic lights that change constantly, these signs are permanent. If one of these signs was present at the scene of a claimant’s accident, this could help a Haddonfield lawyer prove that the opposing party failed to yield the right of way and thereby caused the plaintiff’s damages.
Those injured in failure to yield accidents in Haddonfield are entitled to recover damages for their injuries. Most of the time, this is through the injured person’s insurance company. Medical costs, property damage, and lost wages are recoverable under most policies up to a certain amount. However, if policy limits do not cover all injuries and the victim needs additional compensation, then a civil lawsuit may be the best next step.
If you were injured due to another driver’s failure to yield, you may need the help of an attorney. A Haddonfield failure to yield accident lawyer could help you assess your case and determine the best legal path for you to get fair and just compensation for your injuries. Our attorneys could be your advocate every step of the way and deal with the insurance companies and other lawyers on your behalf. Call us today to get started.
This team is incredible. They are friendly and knowledgeable. I appreciate everything they have done for me and would recommend them to anyone. Overall great experience
My case settled recently after lasting 4 years. Grungo and Colarulo’s law firm were able to secure a large settlement award for my slip and fall accident. This money will help secure my future for the permanent injury I received as a result of the slip and fall. Everyone was very caring, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. Christine Lafferty is an excellent litigation lawyer. I highly recommend using them if you have been injured or in an accident. I hope I am never in a situation again to need their services, but I know who to go to if I, or any of my family members are ever injured. Thanks Grungo and Colarulo and staff for your compassionate service!
Thank you so much Grungo and Colarulo for helping me with my case. Special thanks to Erica Domingo, Esquire and her team. Erica Domingo and her team was very nice and helped me tremendously throughout my case like more than one year and half. They gave me the right advice and guided me through every step of my case. They gave me prompt and clear responses to all my questions. In addition, Erica and her team provided me with all the what if scenarios so that I can have a clear vison of the steps ahead.
I would definitely recommend Grungo and Colarulo.
Thanks again Erica Domingo, Esquire and her team
My wife and I reached out to Grungo Colarulo in 2020 for advise on a legal matter. After a meeting with the Attorney and Paralegal, we decided to go forward with a case. This case required a lot of documentation, and expert review of the documentation which was aquired. Throughout the process, we were kept up to date monthly, and Grungo Colarulo was always responsive to any questions that we had. The entire staff at Grungo Colarulo are very professional, caring, and willing to go the extra mile. This firm is a definite recommend!
I left five (5) stars only because that’s as many as I could leave. If I could, I would have left 100 stars. Bob & Christine are the absolute best! My settlement far exceeded what I ever imagined. They are professional, friendly, and really listened to what I had to say. They kept me up to date with the progress of my case every step of the way. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
Very professional, communicates well, makes me feel like they have my best interest at heart, and overall just a great company. Christine and the whole team has been on top of everything. Would definitely recommend!! 10/10
First and foremost I would like to thank the whole team at Grungo Colarulo!! In addition to that, Stephanie & Riley & Drenna have done such an outstanding job taking care of me in such a difficult and low point of my life.

Those ladies were there every step, every inch, every mile & beyond with helping me when I had no idea how to navigate. I will forever be thankful for them and for the outcome of my case! If you ever need assistance I highly recommend this practice!!! Beyond professional, helpful, precise, caring, knowledgeable & humble!!!

This was my first time ever having to have a lawyer for an automobile accident. From the beginning they took care of everything. They put me at ease so I could concentrate on my medical needs. Everyone I spoke to during the process were always extremely pleasant and knowledgeable.
Thank you to Grungo Colarulo for representing me and getting the settlement you did to help me move forward. I would highly recommend Grungo Colarulo to anyone who wants outstanding legal representation.

A dear family friend referred us to a young attorney named Rich Grungo, Jr. We wanted answers and if necessary, justice for our father. From day one of a five-year journey, Mr. Rich Grungo, Jr. made our family and our pain his own. The man never stopped working for us. He kept us informed every step of the way. Questions were answered quickly and with great compassion and expertise. Even though Rich was always busy, he was never too busy for us. We always felt like we were his only clients
I had the opportunity to observe Mr. Grungo work in this case, both in the courtroom on the technical matters of the motions and also as his presentation to the jury in opening and presenting witnesses as well as utilizing animations… and drawings and films that were necessary for a proper understanding of the case…At all times during the presentation, Mr. Grungo operated mostly without notes and questioned the witnesses in a conversational manner which made it most effective. **
Thank you for everything. I honestly felt like you treated my son like he was your own son, for that I am grateful. I would recommend your services to anyone. Thanks for being so awesome to both of us.
It was a pleasure working with Bill. He constantly kept me informed. I would recommend Bill and his firm to anybody I know. They’ll be in good hands.
I had the opportunity to retain Mr. Colarulo for a vehicle accident I encountered. I give him my highest recommendation for anyone in need of an excellent Personal Injury Attorney. Not only does he have an in depth knowledge of the legal field, but he emanates a sense of trust-worthiness that makes you feel secure during the entire process. Mr. Colarulo has the knowledge, drive and enthusiasm that will get the job done for you. He comes highly recommended.
Hi Rich, Well I’m on my way up to college to finish packing my son’s stuff up and to go to his Graduation tomorrow. It’s hard to believe how fast and how slow, at the same time 5 years can go by. I was just thinking of you as I am getting ready to leave and wanted to thank you once again for everything you have done for my son’s future. You are a good and just man. God Bless to you and your family.
