    Posted By The McClellan Law Firm || Mar 30, 2013

    The number of adults who text while they drive has gone up 60 percent in three years, despite nationwide efforts to combat texting while driving.

The study compared the habits of 530 drivers who had been involved in an accident in the last ...

U.S. drivers, it seems, drive distractedly much more often than European drivers. In fact, while 20.5 percent of UK adults admit to driving while talking on a cell phone at least once in the last month (which may seem like a lot), 68.7 percent of ...

    Posted By The McClellan Law Firm || Mar 15, 2013

    When the luck o' the Irish isn't with you... St. Patrick's Day is a time of merriment for many people. A time to wear green and drink green beer at the bars. Yet, when it is time to go home, too many people choose to drive themselves, even though they have had "one too many" drinks. More than 100 people are killed on U.S. roads every year on St. Patrick's Day, many by drunk drivers. Drivers are 21 ...

  • Are Consumers the Last to Know About Auto Defects?

    Posted By The McClellan Law Firm || Mar 7, 2013

    While the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is doing more today than ever before to make auto defects known to consumers, it can take months, even years, before an auto defect report reaches the public. Take, for example, Hyundai's Veracruz and Santa Fe SUVs. The auto manufacturer recalled some of those vehicles in 2011 for defective air bags. Yet, the recall didn't happen ...

  • “We could not be happier with the McCllelan Law Firm team! My husband and I were referred to Craig McCllelan by one of his peers. We had a very sensitive medical malpractice case that we were hesitant to even pursue. Craig and his team sat down and walked us through the entire process giving us their honest opinion and options. We felt very comfortable with the process and completely relieved by the end of the first meeting, so we decided to proceed. It is three years later and we couldn't be happier that we did. Craig, Connor, and his team made the entire experience so easy and smooth. They were always available no matter how small our question or concern. I swear they work 24/7! And most importantly, we knew that they truly cared about us and the outcome. They fought for our family and have given us the piece of mind that our son's healthcare will always be covered. It is truly the greatest gift and we will forever be in their debt!”
