Sonoma Auto Accident - Failure To Yield

The Sonoma Auto Accident Lawyers at The Law Office of Frederick J. Sette have years of experience recovering compensation for individuals harmed in Sonoma car accidents

If you have been in a Sonoma car accident oftentimes the first question asked is “what happened?” While many factors may lead to an auto accident, the job of a skilled Sonoma car accident lawyer is to determine the specific reasons behind a particular incident in order to ensure you obtain the compensation you deserve.

Ignoring Another Vehicle's Right-of-Way Is A Factor in Many Sonoma Car Accidents

Napa failure to yield car accident attorneyIgnoring another driver’s or pedestrian’s “right-of-way” is a leading cause of many auto accidents in Sonoma , including car/pedestrian and car/bike collisions, as well as side-impact crashes such as “t-bones” and side-swipes. Right-of-way laws determine who should go first when approaching an intersection. Unfortunately, many Sonoma drivers are not aware of these rules and/or choose to ignore them. However, where a driver fails to yield and causes an accident, he or she may be held responsible and required to pay damages including medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.

California has specific rules on who has the right of way when approaching an intersection. These include:

Pedestrians Always Have The Right-of-Way When in A Crosswalk

Remember – if you see a pedestrian in a cross-walk you must allow them to safely pass. This means slowing or coming to a complete stop. Pedestrians include individuals walking, jogging, skateboarding or even rollerblading. It also includes those in wheelchairs. Even if you don’t see a designated cross-walk or light, you are required to yield to pedestrians.

Absent Traffic Signals, The First Car to Approach An Intersection Has The Right-of-Way

As a general rule of thumb, the first vehicle person or bicyclist that arrives at an intersection has the right-of-way. If another person or vehicle is in an intersection, you must allow them to pass before you proceed. In the event you arrive at the same time, the person or vehicle on the right has the right-of-way.

Right-of-Way on Mountain Roads

Narrow mountain roads create significant hazards for Sonoma motorists. When trying to pass through a narrow stretch, the vehicles heading up the mountain have the right-of-way. Vehicles descending a mountain must back up and allow the ascending motorists to pass before continuing.

The Dedicated Car Accident Lawyers at The Law Office of Frederick J. Sette Will Fight to Recover The Compensation You Deserve

Performing a complete investigation into all of the factors surrounding a Sonoma car accident is necessary to ensure you obtain all the compensation you deserve.

Because California is a comparative law state, where more than factor causes or contributes to an accident, you may be able to recover compensation from each party responsible. For example, in a failure to yield accident both a driver who ignores a right of way and an entity responsible for designing a dangerous intersection may be found partly to blame. Consulting with a top Sonoma car accident attorney is necessary to recover the damages from both parties.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a Sonoma car accident, please don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation today with an experienced Sonoma personal injury attorney at the Law Offices of Frederick J. Sette.
