Failure to Properly Merge
Merging is required in a variety of driving situations and is a practice that cannot be completed without safe driving behaviors. When a driver fails to merge correctly, or refuses to yield the right-of-way to another driver, he or she is endangering other drivers nearby, in addition to any bicyclists or pedestrians that may be near. If you are injured in a car accident because another driver merged improperly and caused an accident, you may be able to sue for compensation to help cover any costs that arise from your accident, such as medical costs or the costs of replacing or repairing your vehicle.

There are many instances where merging is necessary for the smooth operation of roadways. Some common situations where proper merging is necessary include:
- Filtering into a parking lot
- Entering a highway
- Exiting a highway
- “Bottleneck” situations
- Lane closures
These are all situations that require responsible merging and the yielding of right-of-way to those who legally have it. Unfortunately, many drivers neglect to engage in proper merging behaviors and subsequently cause serious auto accidents. With the help of an attorney, you may be able to hold those responsible for your injuries financially accountable for their actions.
