Philadelphia Failure to Yield Car Accident Lawyer
It is imperative that every driver knows and applies the rules of the road. Unfortunately, far too often drivers do not know or fail to abide by the rules of road. This can be especially true for truck drivers and drivers of other large commercial vehicles. For whatever reason, truck and tractor-trailer drivers often believe that they own the roads and have the right of way, regardless of the situation on the road. This, however, is not the case.
Failure to yield the right of way is a frequent cause of accidents involving trucks. A common example in particular is when vehicles approach an intersection. Under Pennsylvania law, “when two vehicles approach or enter an intersection from different highways at approximately the same time, the driver of the vehicle on the left shall yield the right-of-way to the vehicle on the right.” Trucks will often disregard this right of way rule.
