Liability In Car Accidents
All drivers have a legal responsibility to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner and take steps to avoid causing accidents. It has been estimated that nearly 94% of all accidents are caused by human error. for example, a number of crashes take place when drivers fail to yield the right of way at stop signs and street lights.
According to California Vehicle Code 21802, “The driver of any vehicle approaching a stop sign at the entrance to, or within, an intersection shall stop as required by Section 22450. The driver shall then yield the right-of-way to any vehicles which have approached from another highway, or which are approaching so closely as to constitute an immediate hazard, and shall continue to yield the right-of-way to those vehicles until he or she can proceed with reasonable safety.”
