Baumgartner Law Firm

Great Lawyer, New Friend


“My car was hit by a drunk driver nearly killing me. The driver then tried to leave the scene after leaving me in a coma. Greg Baumgartner was a big part of my recovery. He and his team made sure that I was taken care of and there was no way for the drunk driver to run from what he had done. He helped me heal by letting me concentrate on my recovery, finding me great doctors and handled all of the headache of the settlement. He got me more than I imagined possible to combat the medical bills piling up and the settlement has helped me these past years. My settlement will continue to help me for years to come. Even though the case has been settled he has kept in contact showing that he is truly concerned about his clients. He is a great lawyer and remains a great friend to this day. I would recommend him to anyone who is in need of help.”

Have You Been Injured by a Drunk Driver?

Have you been hit by a drunk driver? Sustained injuries and had to have medical treatment? Perhaps admitted to the hospital and wondering who is going to pay all of these bills? This is a common occurrence in the state of Texas. Unfortunately, many times the driver who was drunk at the time of the automobile accident has a minimum policy that does not come close to covering the victim’s damages. Fortunately, if the drunk driver was overserved at the bar there is a possibility that the bar may have liquor liability insurance. Cases against bars for clubs over-serving their patrons are not easy cases in Texas.

Nevertheless, the personal injury lawyers at the Baumgartner Law Firm, have been extremely successful in obtaining huge compensation for our clients over the years. An initial investigation after a severe injury DWI accident is always needed to determine if a lawsuit or case against the bar or club can be pursued.

Drunk Driving Accidents

The vast majority of the dram shop cases stem from a drunk driving accident. In Texas, liquor liability cases are governed by the Texas Dram Shop Act, Section 2 of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code, as amended, which Act allows families who have lost a loved one and personal injury victims to bring lawsuits against commercial alcohol providers who may be responsible for a drunk driving accident. Hiring an experienced dram shop lawyer as soon as possible after an accident is a good first step toward justice.

Bars and Clubs May Be Liable

Generally, the burden of proof falls upon the plaintiff to prove that at the time the alcohol was provided to the drunk driver, that the individual was obviously intoxicated such that he or she was a danger to themselves or others. Additionally, the plaintiff must prove that the over-serving of alcohol was a cause of the damages complained of by the plaintiff. An early investigation by an experienced dram shop lawyer who knows the liquor liability laws in Texas is essential to protect the victim’s rights.

Importance of Early Investigation

It is often very important that a dram shop attorney the hired as soon as possible after the drunk driving auto accident so that a full investigation can be instigated as soon as possible. There are certain safe harbor defenses available to the bar or club and it is important that the attorney for the family started an investigation as soon as practicable after the accident. As the condition of the over-served patron can be a big issue in the lawsuit, the earlier the investigation begins more likely a successful conclusion. Thus, eyewitnesses can be extremely important in a typical dram shop case.

Our drunk driving accident lawyer is experienced in handling cases against bars and clubs who have over-served a customer who later had an accident injuring them or others. When you or a loved one has been injured in a drunk driving accident involving serious injuries or the wrongful death loss of a family member, often the drunk driver does not have adequate liability insurance to cover the damages. The ability to bring a bar or a club to court to answer for their responsibility in over serving the patron is sometimes the only civil justice available in many serious injuries or wrongful death accidents.
