Failure to Yield Accidents
Failure to yield is among the leading cause of roadway accidents in Texas. Some drivers simply fail to give their full attention while driving, and others consider themselves above the law. Regardless of why the failure occurred, everyone is obligated to yield the right-of-way by following official traffic signs and signals and adhering to the rules of the road.
