Carlsbad Lawyers

Carlsbad in San Diego County, California is taking a hard look at improving life for pedestrians. The seaside community has many joggers, bicyclists and walkers who are at increased risk of ending up in a car accident.

"Thousands of people are killed and injured each year in car collisions involving pedestrians," said nationally recognized pedestrian and car accident attorney John Bisnar. Many of these accidents are preventable if both motorist and pedestrian simply use more caution and obey traffic laws."

The City of Carlsbad's Pedestrian Master Plan uncovered a number of traffic conditions, followed by recommendations to cut down on the number of car accidents:

  • Pacific Coast Highway south of Avenida Encinas is a problem area. Angled parking, high-speed traffic, and no sidewalks, cause pedestrians to walk in the bike lane.
  • A pathway is needed between Laguna Drive and the City of Oceanside (Eaton Street). Children cross there regularly.
  • A four-way stop controlled intersection is needed at Buena Vista Circle and Laguna Drive.
  • A Chestnut Avenue pedestrian crossing is needed to get past the railroad tracks.
  • Madison Street and Roosevelt Street are too wide. Traffic calming is needed to reduce speeds.
  • Carlsbad Boulevard is very unsafe and not traversable on foot because of high vehicle speeds.
  • The intersections of Laguna Drive & Madison Street and Laguna Drive & Roosevelt Street are not safe for crossing.
  • There is a lack of traffic control on Carlsbad Boulevard between Pine Avenue and Tamarack Avenue.
  • The Carlsbad Village Road/I-5 off ramps are dangerous, since motorists don't look before turning off the freeway.
  • Cars are too close to the dirt walking areas along Carlsbad Boulevard, south of Cannon Road and north of Tamarack Avenue, which presents a dangerous pedestrian environment.
  • A signalized pedestrian crosswalk is needed on Carlsbad Boulevard between Tamarack Avenue and Pine Avenue.
  • A pedestrian crossing is needed between Tamarack Avenue and Pine Street along Carlsbad Boulevard. The pedestrian crossing should be lit so motorists can see pedestrians at night.

Overall statistics suggest that pedestrians fare poorly in car collisions:

  • A pedestrian is killed in the U.S. every 99 minutes.
  • 600 pedestrian fatalities and 13,000 injuries occur every year in California.
  • 28 percent of California's pedestrian deaths occur in San Diego County.
  • Only half of the pedestrians struck by a motor vehicle going 30 mph survive, and just 15 percent survive if the vehicle is traveling at 40 mph.

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“I don’t even know where to start, because I really wanted to write this recommendation even if there was no star or rating to be given! My daughter and I were in a bad car accident in 2011. She received a broke jaw, broken pelvic, broken arm, and a ruptured ear drum. I prayed to the lord while I was in ICU to guide me and send me to the right attorney that would help me and my daughter and not just look at us as a monetary opportunity. After much research I choose Bisnar Chase.
After spending 2 months in the ICU, we were in a long recovery process. Learning to walk, to eat due to wire shut for months! Back to the basic all over again… 4 years later it just came to an end! I tell you I have 2 different paralegals assisting me but Colleen Cadogan was the best I had this past year… This lady, emailed me, called me, send me words of encouragement almost every week! When I least expect it and I had a horrible day or had many questions and concerns she was there! As the paralegal doing her job, but also as a human being, a mother, a wife….just genuinely concern for my daughter and I. As the case came to a close….I will always remember the team of professionals and I would recommended Bisnar Chase to anyone….and be patient, patience”

“After a bad accident, we were lost on how to handle the insurance agents, the paperwork involved and the claims representatives. We contacted Bisnar Chase and they took care of everything. It gave us the peace of mind we needed to heal. I am very impressed with their level of professionalism and their compassion. We definitely recommend Bisnar Chase.”

“We received an email from A.G. Edwards stating they have received the settlement check from Nissan. Once again, I cannot begin to articulate our gratitude to the Bisnar Chase staff - we are so very thankful for all you have done for Josh. As parents, Charlotte and I can rest in peace, when that day comes, knowing that Josh's needs have been taken care of, and his financial future is in good hands with sound financial planners at A.G. Edwards. On December 17, 2003 we received a call from the paramedics stating that Josh and Lisa had been in a severe accident, and we needed to meet them at the emergency room. I remember telling God that I can deal with missing limbs because they can be replaced, but please do not take him from us. A month later we met with members of your staff for the first time, Josh had a traumatic brain injury and his future was looking pretty bleak; we had no idea where he would be eighteen months later. All we could think of at the time was that our son's future, his goals, and dreams had been taken from him so abruptly. As time passed, Josh continued to improve and he began his journey of recovery. Many have been involved in this process, and you and your staff have been an integral part of Josh's recovery, and we will be forever grateful. God has brought so many people into our lives, and we are so very blessed. Numerous emails were sent to Personal Injury Attorney's. John...you were on a ski trip at Big Bear with your family, and you were the only Personal Injury Attorney to respond - I believe this was divine intervention. Josh has a professor from Mt. San Jacinto College who has taken him "under his wing," and is showing him other career possibilities. John, the future looks good for Josh - thank you!”
