Happy New Year! — New Year’s Eve Safety Tips From Phillips Law Group
December 30, 2022
At the tail end of the holiday season every year is New Year’s Eve, a time for celebration and reflection on the past 12 months. A lot of people choose to celebrate New Year’s Eve with family and friends, either at a public celebration or a private get-together. No matter how you decide to celebrate, the team at Phillips Law Group has some safety tips to recommend that should help you stay safe this New Year’s Eve.
The number one safety measure to keep in mind on New Year’s Eve is driving safely, and that means absolutely no drinking and driving. Parties on New Year’s Eve too often result in impaired people driving home from wherever they’ve chosen to celebrate the big occasion. Driving while under the influence heavily increases the risk of a car accident, and you should never get behind the wheel of a car after drinking.
Make sure to plan a safe way to get home before you start drinking if you choose to consume alcohol on New Year’s Eve. Having a designated driver ready and waiting, or using a rideshare or other car or limo service, are all excellent options to avoid impaired driving. If you’re somewhere with public transportation, that can be a great, affordable alternative as well.
Sadly, some people will still choose to drive after drinking on New Year’s Eve, so if you do end up driving that evening – whether you’re driving yourself or you’re a designated driver for others – be vigilant and keep an eye out for impaired drivers who are not driving as safely as you are.
If you, unfortunately, find yourself in an accident due to the negligence of another driver, make sure to gather all the information you can at the site of the collision, including taking photos for evidence, and call both your insurance company — to report the accident — and a healthcare provider for a check-up after the crash. And consider calling the car accident lawyers at Phillips Law Group if you need an attorney after a wreck.
If you are hosting others on New Year’s Eve, make sure to prepare with a few safety precautions before your guests arrive. Making a checklist of things like testing smoke detectors, inspecting the security of fences and gates around pools or hot tubs, and having a fire extinguisher available can make all the difference in avoiding unnecessary tragedy during the holiday.
It’s also a good idea, whether you’re hosting a party or attending as a guest, to follow COVID-19 protocols for any New Year’s Eve gatherings. It might be wise to have people do rapid tests before getting together, and to consider getting fully vaccinated – including boosters – if you haven’t already done so. Wearing masks in crowded areas, particularly indoors, can help prevent transmission of the virus, too.
And if you feel sick, stay home! New Year’s Eve happens every year, and it’s not worth getting your loved ones sick just to make it to the party anyway.
Finally, some people choose to have a fireworks display during a New Year’s Eve party. Be sure to exercise caution with all fireworks and follow all local laws when it comes to using them, no matter if you set them off on New Year’s Eve or for another celebration.
Follow these tips to stay safe, and enjoy your New Year’s Eve! The team at Phillips Law Group will be here and happy to assist you with your legal needs in 2023.
Happy New Year!

If you are in need of legal support for a motor vehicle collision of any kind, I highly recommend going to Phillips Law Group Injury Lawyers. Sean Davis has exemplary knowledge and experience in this field, compassion for his clients, and excellent judgment and communication skills.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
Jasmine helped me so so much I want to thank her ! And also Aaron , i was always scared after an accident , knowing I would have to deal with lawyers but not here . Luckily I’ve only been in 3 accidents but this time it was fast and easy . And i received all the treatments I needed to help me recover ! Thank you Jasmine and Aaron!
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.
Great company and awesome service. Thanks Caroline fabos. Kudos to all.
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
Sophia H is very helpful.
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
