San Marcos Lawyers

With a population of nearly 83,000, San Marcos in northern San Diego County, California has experienced a number of car crash tragedies. In fact, San Marcos auto accident attorneys have intimated that reckless drivers and dangerous roads are key contributors in many car collisions.

As with most cities, dangerous intersections have contributed to some tragic San Marcos car crashes. One hazardous intersection can be found at San Marcos Blvd. and Rancho Santa Fe Road. Another dangerous crossroad is located at San Marcos Blvd. and Acacia Rd. Motorists often zip down these roads at high speeds. Still another dangerous intersection can be found at San Antonio and Harvey Street.

In August 2008, a tragedy occurred at one such intersection. Sadly, a 19-year-old Encinitas man lost his life at West San Marcos Boulevard and Acacia when the Jeep he was a passenger in collided with a 2007 Honda Pilot turning left onto West San Marcos Boulevard from Acacia Drive. The 36-year-old driver of the Jeep was traveling on West San Marcos Boulevard when he tried to run a red light. The driver was seriously injured and the passenger was killed at the scene. The driver of the Honda was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Part of its proactive efforts to reduce car crashes, San Marcos set up a DUI checkpoint at 1600 San Elijo Road on October 31st, 2008. A total of 963 vehicles were screened. Three drivers were arrested on suspicion of drunk driving, 19 citations were issued and 16 vehicles were towed away.

An increasing number of San Marcos car collision lawyers approve of sobriety checkpoints as a means to remove intoxicated drivers from the road and make streets safer.

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“I would like to thank Bisnar and Chase for the wonderful job that they accomplished on my personal injury case. They were very professional and extremely effective. Thanks again.”

by Bruce Anguiano

“I could not recommend Bisnar & Chase highly enough! Now, I must be forthcoming and tell you that I am writing this review on behalf of my wonderful mother. You see, she's a mom, and therefor [sic] by nature is completely unable to do even the most simple of tasks on the internet. Like writing a a Yelp review. But we all love our moms don't we? Yes. We all love our moms (except Charles Manson), and would do anything to make sure they are protected and well taken care of. Upon referral from my mother's coworker, we contacted Bisnar & Chase. They had done a great job in this previous case and were located extremely close to both UCI and home, which made stopping by their office very convenient for my Mom. My Mom had been in an auto accident, nothing crazy but not a mere fender bender, and suffered what we thought to be some minor whiplash. Months later this was definitely not the case. Her client experience with the associates at Bisnar & Chase was so impressive that she raved to me about every time she heard anything from them. How thorough they were. How they listened better than I did (or something to that effect). How she liked Shannon and Mr. Bisnar and felt that they really had her best interests at heart. I honestly couldn't get her to shut up about them. But as a daughter that last part was all that I needed to hear to know that I we had found the right people and I could sleep easy at night knowing my Mom was in good hands. The Bisnar & Chase team really went above and beyond my family's expectations. And for that I am extremely grateful. If you live in the Newport Beach/Irvine/Costa Mesa/General Orange County area I would highly recommend Bisnar & Chase to both friends, and family.”

“I cannot speak highly enough of Bisnar and Chase. They represented us when we were hit by a government drunk driver on base while my husband was enlisted in April 2010 and stayed diligent throughout our long federal case. They handled everything start to finish and held our hands the whole way!”
