Some of the most serious injuries in a car accident occur when one driver fails to yield to other drivers on the road. For example:
- When an automobile makes an improper lane change, it can push another car into oncoming traffic, causing a head-on collision.
- When a car fails to observe a stop sign or stop light, it can “T-bone” or impact the side of another vehicle.
If you have been injured because of another driver’s failure to yield, you need a lawyer on your side who can fight the insurance companies to get the full and fair compensation you need for medical expenses, lost income and pain and suffering. At Shepard & Haven, attorneys Ronald Haven and Kenneth Shepard each have more than 35 years of legal experience and are ready to put this experience to work for you. Contact us today.
The Costs of Failing to Yield
The sides of a car, particularly the doors, offer less protection than other areas of your vehicle. As a result, if you are in a side-impact crash with another vehicle, your injuries are likely to be very severe. Neck injuries are particularly common in side-impact crashes. The neck is not meant to jerk violently from side to side, but in a side-impact crash, that is exactly what happens.
In an accident caused by one driver’s failure to yield, it is usually very obvious who was at fault. You may think that because fault it so obvious, you will be treated fairly by the insurance companies. Think again. Insurance companies have but one goal, and that is to minimize the amount of money paid to injured people. If you want to be treated fairly by the insurance companies, you need an experienced Sacramento personal injury lawyer on your side.
