Manhattan car accident lawyer releases a new article (https://www.rrklawgroup.com/what-does-yielding-the-right-of-way-mean/) explaining the meaning of yielding the right-of-way. The lawyer explains that traffic laws are designed to keep those sharing the roadways safe. In New York, there is a dense population of pedestrians, vehicles, and cyclists on the streets. Traffic laws have been developed so that each party shares all the responsibilities in case of an accident.

According to the article from the Manhattan car accident lawyer, “According to traffic law, right-of-way means the right to proceed. When two vehicles or parties come to or occupy the same area or intersection simultaneously, one of these parties will lawfully have the right-of-way. All states have laws that detail circumstances when a driver, cyclist, or pedestrian has the right-of-way or must grant the right-of-way to another party.”

According to the lawyer, failure to yield accidents was the fourth most common cause of fatalities in the United States in 2018, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The rising number of cyclist and pedestrian deaths in New York City is also due to the failure to yield the right-of-way.

Attorney Samantha Kucher says there are specific right-of-way laws in New York. State legislators have enacted stricter laws and penalties to ensure everyone knows their rights and responsibilities when they're on the road. New York City is still a hotbed for right-of-way violations.

In the article, the lawyer says that failure to yield often occurs at intersections. This includes failure to obey signs and signals, failure to yield when there are no signs or signals, left-hand turns at intersections, T-intersection right-of-way, and four-way stops.

“Pedestrians are also responsible for their own actions on our streets in New York City. While drivers of vehicles have the bulk of the responsibility for yielding the right-of-way, pedestrians who do not follow their own rules can be held accountable if an accident results,” says the accident attorney.

Lastly, the lawyer also emphasizes the importance of understanding your rights in claiming compensation for car accident injuries. An experienced lawyer may be able to help victims navigate the legal system.
