Liability of a Vehicle Entering the Roadway

Washington Law provides that a driver who is attempting to enter or cross a public street or highway from a private road or driveway shall yield the right of way to all approaching vehicles. This right of way, however, is not absolute but relative, and the duty to exercise ordinary care rests upon both parties. Liability of a vehicle entering the roadway, most often rests upon the driver entering or crossing the roadway to avoid a car accident. Such duty must be performed with reasonable regard to the maintenance of a fair margin of safety at all times. In Washington, fault can be apportioned to both drivers for their share of the blame in a collision.  Because of this, liability disputes often arise in failure to yield cases. These disputes can result in the injured party receiving less than their fair compensation.

Because liability is so often contested, even when liability for a motor vehicle accident is clear, it is best to seek a free personal injury case evaluation early. If you are injured in an accident, you need an experienced and knowledgeable personal injury lawyer in Spokane on your side. The attorneys at Parke Gordon Law Firm will work hard to get you the compensation you deserve. Contact the law office of personal injury attorney Mat Parke today for a free consultation.

Call (509) 482-7274 to get started on receiving a fair settlement from your personal injury case.

The following is the Washington Rules of the Road for vehicles entering the roadway:

RCW 46.61.205: Vehicle entering highway from private road or driveway.

The driver of a vehicle about to enter or cross a highway from a private road or driveway shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles lawfully approaching on said highway.
