Knox County Failure to Stop or Yield Accident Lawyer

Campbell County Failure to Stop or Yield Accident Lawyers

Attorney in Knoxville for Victims Injured in Crashes Caused by Drivers Who Fail to Stop at Stop Signs

A car crash can happen for almost any reason or any combination of reasons. A significant number of accidents occur because people are in too much of a hurry to get where they need to go. In their haste, many drivers are not as careful as they should be, which can easily lead to missing stop signs, ignoring yield signs, and running traffic signals. At The Law Office of William F. Evans, we know that a driver who fails to stop or yield can easily cause a serious crash that results in severe injuries. If you have been injured by another motorist’s negligence, our firm can help you recover compensation to get your life back on track.

Legal Advice for Traffic Accidents in East Tennessee

Traffic signals such as red lights, stop signs, and yield signs are meant to regulate the flow of cars and trucks on the road in a manner that facilitates public and personal safety. Such signals are only useful, however, when drivers obey them in accordance with the rules of the road. According to federal estimates, some 40 percent of all traffic accidents happen at intersections, and many are caused by drivers who fail to stop or yield the right of way properly.

Attorney William Evans realizes that it is fairly uncommon for a motorist to miss a stop sign altogether. A driver is much more likely to slow down—maybe to a “rolling stop”—and then attempt to cross the intersection without worrying about which other drivers may have had the right of way. Yield signs, by comparison, are often a different story. While the instruction of a stop sign is obvious, even if some drivers do not stop completely, many drivers are unsure of what a yield sign means and how to yield the right of way. For example, in some situations, a driver may need to actually stop at a yield sign in order to yield the right of way properly.

In the moments immediately following an accident, it can be extremely challenging to figure out exactly how the crash occurred. Most drivers will not even remember or realize that they did not stop completely or yield properly, and they will probably not admit fault on their own. Our firm is equipped to conduct a comprehensive investigation to determine the cause of the accident and the party or parties that may be liable. From there, we will go to work in building your case to get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Dealing With Insurance Companies

While you should be entitled to collect damages for medical bills, lost wages, and other costs related to your injuries from the party who caused your accident, insurance companies often make the process more difficult than it needs to be. An insurance carrier may look to minimize its payout by attempting to blame you for the accident, disputing the extent of your injuries, or simply delaying payments of valid claims.

At The Law Office of William F. Evans, we know the games that insurance companies play and the tactics they may use to limit their liability. We will negotiate aggressively on your behalf in pursuit of a fair settlement, but if such a settlement is not possible, we are prepared to take your matter into the courtroom.
