3The rules of the road are designed to create order and to keep everyone safe. A person who violates a traffic code by running a red light or a stop sign puts other motorists in danger. That a driver who failed to yield is liable might seem straightforward, but proving the case takes a high degree of knowledge, experience and determination.

This allows us the opportunity to give our full attention to developing substantial resources and refining our approach to proving liability.

Investigating a Failure-to-Yield Claim
In the court of law, you cannot just state a fact—you must prove the fact through evidence. Preservation of evidence is, therefore, crucial to winning your rightful compensation, even if liability seems obvious to you. Ultimately, you must prove that you had the right to occupy the space at a given time and that the other driver did not.
Our attorney is aggressive about investigating your claim. We start immediately. If your accident happened after business hours or on the weekend, you have access to your lawyer right then and there so the investigation can begin before evidence is cleared and lost forever.
Steps we may take to investigate a failure-to-yield claim include:
- Visiting the crash scene to measure debris scatter, photograph the accident and note other relevant details.
- Talking to witnesses who may have seen whether the light was yellow or red when the car drove through it.
- Looking for video cameras that may have been trained on the intersection and caught the accident on tape.
- Subpoenaing phone records to determine if the person was talking on the phone or texting at the time of the accident.
