Failure to Yield Accidents
There is no single type of “failure to yield accident.” There are various scenarios in which a failure to yield accident might occur, and they often overlap with other accident types, such as drunk or distracted driving accidents. Examples of failure to yield accidents include:
Perpendicular or 90-degree angle accidents occur when a driver fails to yield to a red light or stop sign, colliding into the side of a car with the right of way. These are also called T-bone accidents.
Drivers turning right at a red light are required to come to a complete stop and yield to any oncoming traffic before turning right. Drivers who do not yield cause dangerous accidents when they pull out in front of oncoming traffic. Drivers traveling at high speeds may not be able to stop in time to avoid hitting the driver and could be seriously injured when rear-ending the driver who failed to yield.
Drivers making unprotected left turns may cause failure to yield accidents when turning in front of oncoming traffic. Like angle accidents, these drivers can cause dangerous side-impact collisions when oncoming drivers hit them at full speed.
Though there are other ways in which these accidents may occur, these three scenarios are responsible for some of the most severe injuries drivers experience in failure to yield accidents. If you have suffered a severe injury because a driver failed to yield the right of way, you too could be seriously injured. If that is the case, a Phoenix failure to yield accident lawyer from Ben Crump Law, PLLC can help determine whether you may be eligible for compensation.

Failure to yield accidents can sometimes result in deaths caused by negligent driving. If you lost someone to a driver who failed to yield, in accordance with Arizona Revised Statutes (ARS) § 12-612, you might be able to file a “wrongful death” lawsuit.
Wrongful death lawsuits seek to recover compensation for surviving family members that covers the costs resulting from a victim’s death, such as medical expenses and lost earnings, as well as the emotional devastation a family experiences after the death of their loved one.
Though it is impossible to value the loss of a loved one, if your case goes to trial, a jury will determine the amount of damages your family can collect. Conversely, if your case is settled before reaching a trial, the amount will be determined in negotiations.

Filing a Phoenix Failure to Yield Accident Lawsuit
If you were the one injured in the failure to yield accident, you might be able to file a personal injury lawsuit to collect compensation for your injury. There are important details to consider when filing any kind of lawsuit, one of which is the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits in Arizona, stated in ARS § 12-542, is two years from the date of the accident, so it is imperative to file your case before that date passes to make sure it is still legally valid.
If your case is successfully filed, and you are able to collect compensation, your award will be calculated by evaluating your losses, which are divided into two categories—economic losses and non-economic losses.
Your economic losses are your financial losses, such as expenses resulting from your injury and lost income from past and future missed work. Non-economic losses include non-monetary losses, like a loss of quality of life, pain, length of recovery, incapacitation, disfigurement, and overall suffering.
No Cap on Arizona Damages
In Arizona, unlike many other states, there is no cap on the amount of economic or non-economic damages a victim may collect. According to Arizona Constitution Art. II § 31, a victim can collect the entire amount a jury awards them in economic and non-economic compensation.
