According to Florida law, http://law.onecle.com/florida/motor-vehicles/316.123.html, when approaching a yield sign, you should first slow down and possibly stop in order to see what the other cars are doing. The cars already in the intersection or highway have the right-of-way and you should yield to them, not the other way around.
If you are injured by a driver who does not stop at a yield sign, the law clearly states that the fact that you were injured acts as evidence of the driver’s fault in the accident. Please seek the help of an experienced accident attorney for more information.
