Hollywood Right of Way Violations

Every motorist and motorcyclist learns about right-of-way rules. When motorists failed to yield right-of-way to motorcyclists, however, severe and even fatal motorcycle injuries are a common result. These types of accidents are especially upsetting because they are completely preventable. If drivers are only more patient and yield right-of-way to motorcyclists, these accidents do not have to happen.

Have you been injured because someone failed to yield right-of-way in Hollywood or another community? In many cases, these cases can be difficult to prove without the work of a good personal injury attorney.

Why Do Right-of-Way Violations Occur?

There are many reasons why right-of-way violations occur and lead to car accidents and motorcycle accidents in Hollywood and other communities:

  • Drivers are impatient and fail to yield right-of-way
  • Drivers do not understand right-of-way rules
  • Drivers do not treat motorcyclists as other vehicles on the road or assume that they can bully motorcyclists into yielding
  • Drivers think that there is no consequence to driving through an intersection even when they don't have right-of-way

Right of way violations can lead to catastrophic injuries, since in many cases these accidents occur at busy intersections. In many cases, they also involve high speeds because the at-fault driver is impatient. In these cases, motorcyclists have few layers of protection between them and a larger truck or passenger car. Motorcyclists often incur head injuries, fatal injuries, internal injuries, or other serious injuries as a result of this type of accident while impatient or reckless drivers will often walk away without a scratch.
