A drunk driving accident can change your life. When a drunk driver makes the bad decision to get behind the wheel, you and your family can end up paying the price, sometimes with your life. But a drunk driving accident attorney can help.

Drunk Driving AccidentDrunk driving accidents are a serious problem in Michigan. Every year, over one third of all fatal car accidents involve drugs or alcohol. The victims of drunk driving accidents don’t care about the statistics. They want to know what can be done to help them.

Cooperate with Police

Drunk driving is a crime in Michigan. It can result in very serious consequences, especially when someone is injured or killed. When a drunk driver is convicted, “restitution” payments to the injured victim can part of his or her sentence. But if you want to recover restitution, you will need to cooperate with police to provide them proof of all your losses.

File the Proper Insurance Claims

Whether you were the drunk driver or not, you are still entitled to no-fault insurance benefits. After any auto accident, you can file a claim with your auto insurance provider for medical expenses, lost wages, and attendant care reimbursement.

Sue the Drunk Driver

If the person who hit you was driving drunk, and you were seriously hurt, the driver will be liable for your damages including pain and suffering, and extended disability. Third party claims in drunk driving accidents can help you recover for all the hurt caused by the accident that don’t come with a receipt.

Wrongful Death Actions in a Fatal Drunk Driving Accident

If your family has lost a loved one in one of the many fatal drunk driving accidents that happen every year, there is nothing that will bring that person back to you. But a wrongful death lawsuit can make sure that your family doesn’t suffer for the loss of that person’s income or ability to provide care and services. The family of a drunk driving victim can also receive compensation for funeral and burial expenses, making sure that these unexpected costs don’t bury the family in debt.

I suffered Traumatic Brain Injury when struck by a vehicle while walking. My recovery was a long uphill battle; I had little energy to expend on daily routines and even LESS on caring for my home and life. I wondered how I could continue into the future with the difficulties I faced.

I handed the baton off to David and Sarah of Christensen Law. They resolved the unique challenges of my case while buffering me from the opposing side’s onslaught. The case concluded successfully and to my satisfaction with minimal effort on my part.

Overall a professional, great team. Everyone knew me and my case. When I left a message, I got a quick reply. Sarah made me feel comfortable going into a courtroom, where I never had been before.

V. Watkins

I never knew attorneys could be so accessible and kind. They fought for me all the way to the end. They had to take my case to trial and they won me a great settlement. Now I have a secure future.


HH, Davison

I was treated very nicely and professionally with a lot of consideration and compassion for my disabilities suffered in a horrible car accident. Mr. Christensen and Sarah Stempky made sure I understood what was happening with my case and that everything was pulled together.

LG, Stockbridge

As an accident victim I had to have my leg amputated and I was in bad shape overall. David Christensen was a light in that experience. I ended up with an entire home modification to accommodate my disabilities. It was a very stubborn insurance company but David wouldn’t take no for an answer.

CB, Milford

If I had questions or worries Dave would address them with me because he knows what he is doing. I think the world of him. I felt he went above and beyond to turn a really bad situation around. I have hope now where before I felt powerless and miniscule and that these big insurance companies were just going to railroad me.
