Boca Raton Failure to Yield Attorney for Truck Accidents in South Florida
When large commercial truck drivers fail to yield, the consequences can be devastating. Yet, these truck driving mistakes are extremely common. If you got hit, cut off or forced off of the road by a reckless truck driver, you may be entitled to financial compensation, and you should speak with a Boca Raton failure to yield attorney promptly.
Common Truck Driving Mistakes in Failure to Yield Accidents
Like all drivers, truck drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles safely at all times. This includes obeying the rules of the road—and yielding to other motorists when required. As a result, when a truck driver causes an accident due to a failure to yield, the truck driver (and the trucking company) can be held legally accountable. Some common examples of driving mistakes in failure to yield truck accidents include:
- Aggressive driving (i.e., merging despite not having enough room)
- Distracted driving
- Failing to check blind spots before merging or turning
- Ignoring road signs, traffic signals or lane markings
- Speeding (i.e., driving too fast to be able to yield the right of way)
All of these are grounds to seek just compensation after a truck accident involving failure to yield. They are also just examples. Regardless of what happened, if you were involved in an accident that involved a truck driver’s failure to yield, you will want to speak with an attorney about filing a claim for just compensation.
