Get home safely! Don’t drink and drive. Intoxicated drivers enjoy a FREE ride home on New Year’s Eve from Christensen Law!

New Year’s Eve is a time to think about the past year and make healthy resolutions for the upcoming year. It’s also one of the biggest nights for alcohol related car accidents. If you’re planning on ringing in the New Year at a celebration that includes alcohol, we invite you enjoy a FREE Safe Ride Home paid for by Christensen Law.

Christensen Law is a personal injury law firm and we have represented thousands of victims who have been hurt or injured in drunk driving accidents. Sadly, fatal car accidents tend to spike on New Year’s Eve because far too many revelers make the poor choice to get behind the wheel of a car and drive after they have been drinking.

Here are some important statistics to keep in mind as you make your New Year’s plans:

  • 48 percent of highway deaths on New Year’s Eve are alcohol-related according to MADD
  • According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, an average of 118 motorists are killed every New Year’s Day
  • New Year’s driving statistics from show that between 2008 and 2012, January 1st had the highest percentage of alcohol related deaths when compared to other days and holidays.

Before you head out for your NYE celebration, select a designated driver for your group. Remember, a designated driver is someone who does not drink at all – not the person who drinks the least. If you don’t have a designated driver, or perhaps you weren’t planning on drinking and you got caught up in all the fun, then be smart and don’t drive. Instead call a cab or call Uber or Lyft and Christensen Law will pay for it!

What you need to know about drunk driving laws in Michigan:

  • In Michigan, you are considered legally drunk if your blood alcohol content level is 0.08 or above
  • A zero-tolerance law is in effect for drivers under 21
  • Drivers who are cited for drunken driving may be punished with jail, fines, license suspension or revocation, and more

At Christensen Law, we want you to welcome in 2017 wisely and safely. Since 2015, our Safe Ride Hope program has provided close to 400 free rides home to drivers in the Southeastern Michigan area. We encourage you to make the call. Enjoy your celebration and Happy New Year!

Everyone at Christensen Law was extremely friendly and very easy to work with. Whenever I had a question, they took the time to talk with me and explained everything thoroughly. They were also very quick to return phone calls. I would definitely recommend Christensen Law to anyone in need of a personal injury lawyer.

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.

To ease the burden of the load you carry, make the decision on your legal team today. You’re in the right place – all you have to do now is make the call.

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. Both David and Sarah are very knowledgeable with legal issues. I trusted everyone and am a satisfied client.

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.

DT, Jackson
