Car accidents take place about 30 times every hour in Florida. Failing to yield the right of way is a common cause of accidents across our state and the damage can be serious in these types of accidents. The failure to follow traffic laws is negligent driving behavior and leads to civil liability on behalf of the negligent individual.
