GETTING TO THE BOTTOM OF FAILURE-TO-YIELD CRASHES
Seek Damages With Specialized Legal Care
Car accidents of any type are capable of causing serious injuries and sometimes fatalities. When an accident happens as a result of a negligent or careless driver, that driver needs to be held responsible for his or her actions.
The attorneys at McCoy & McCoy are aggressive advocates for accident victims and the maximum compensation they deserve. We believe the victim of an accident should not be held financially liable for past, present or future medical expenses, repair costs, lost wages, or any other pain and suffering related to his or her accident.
Proving Liability In Failure To Yield Accidents Is Challenging
To help our clients, we are unrelenting in our pursuit of justice. However, failure to yield accidents are not always easy to prove. In many instances, it is the victim’s vehicle that actually hit the other vehicle, whose driver failed to yield, thus causing the collision. Proving that you, not the other driver, had the right of way will be vital if you want to recover the compensation you need to cover your accident-related expenses.
Rest assured that we will not back down even when facing the most complicated of cases.
Our objective is to help you obtain the optimum results for your case whether through negotiations or litigation in court. Proving liability in failure to yield accidents involves a lot of hard work, an in-depth knowledge of personal injury laws and a high level of legal expertise.
Our firm is extremely proud of the fact that we have a board-certified civil trial lawyer on our team who is an expert in handling these types of cases. We also have more than 50 years of experience helping clients throughout Connecticut determine the validity of their claims and prove liability, so that they can recover the compensation they truly deserve.
If the at-fault party attempts to deny liability or contest fault, we will be there to fight aggressively on your behalf to see that justice is served.
Getting The Full And Fair Compensation You Deserve
We are well aware of the bad faith practices insurance companies often engage in to try and avoid paying out on valid claims. We do not let their efforts distract us from our goal of helping you get the compensation you need to recover from your injuries and move on with your life.
We encourage our clients to take an active role in protecting their own interests in these types of accidents. In a failure to yield accident as a result of a driver failing to yield:
- While making a left turn
- While at a crosswalk
- To a bicyclist or pedestrian
- To an emergency vehicle
- When merging
- At a flashing traffic light
- When emerging from a parking spot or private drive
You will need to gather as much evidence as possible to help support your claim and prove the other driver is at fault. We can handle the investigation, case preparation, negotiations with insurance companies and all other legal aspects of your case.
Do not discuss your accident or agree to any type of settlement before first speaking with your lawyer.
The other driver and his or her insurance company do not have your best interests in mind. They are only interested in doing what they can to take advantage of the situation, create confusion, deny responsibility or fault for the accident, and pay out the lowest possible settlement amount.
Our firm is here to protect you and get you compensated for the injuries that you have suffered. Contact our Hartford-based attorneys at McCoy & McCoy right away, so that we can review your claim and help you build your case.
