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. 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.”

Houston Drunk Driving Accident Attorney

Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer Serving Houston

You need a Houston drunk driving accident attorney who understands how to prosecute civil lawsuits against drunk drivers, bars and others and has a proven track record in serious personal injury and wrongful death cases.
One of the key factors in serious drunk driving accident is to determine where and how the drinking driver got drunk because many times other potential defendants can be pursued in addition to the drunk driver.

While lawsuits against bars and clubs have legal hurdles in Texas, the drunk driving accident lawyers at the Baumgartner law firm have been extremely successful in many noteworthy cases against not only the drunk driver but also those who served them. Not every case against a drunk driver will involve the legal responsibility of a bar or club.

It is important to hire a reputable DUI accident attorney as soon as possible after the car wreck while evidence can still be preserved. The police often videotape the drinking driver and the lawyer for the drunk driver in the criminal case will often seek to have the videotape destroyed after the case is resolved. Sometimes especially if the lawsuit will involve a club or bar such evidence of outward intoxication is critical.

Additionally, when a bar or a club is a potential defendant it is essential to obtain eyewitness evidence at the establishment. That can only happen if you hire a DUI or DWI injury accident lawyer quickly after the drunk driving accident.

Punitive Damages in DWI Cases

In many car accident cases, punitive damages can be sought for the dangerous conduct on the part of the drunk defendant driver. While Texas has established express rules for dealing with exemplary damages they may be appropriately sought in some accidents involving the DWI accident. It is important to note, that punitive damages are in addition to actual damages and are assessed as a civil punishment for bad acts.

The Houston drunk driving accident lawyer Gregory Baumgartner at the Baumgartner Law Firm has handled cases involving substantial punitive damages in drunk driver accident cases for over 35 years. Our track record of wins speaks for itself!

Common Questions About Drunk Driving Accident Cases

Why hire a drunk driving accident lawyer?

DWI accidents are valued by the insurance company differently than not drunk driving accidents. The potential for a significant jury verdict goes up exponentially when the driver of the other vehicle gets arrested for drunken driving. Punitive damages may also be a factor. An experienced attorney can only achieve the leverage of a potential jury verdict. Many people who try to handle their cases end up with much less without a reputable attorney.

How to find the best-drunk driving accident attorney?

There is no question that the better your attorney, the better your odds are for recovering maximum compensation. To find the best attorney for your case requires a little bit of research. The most important qualities to look for include, experience, reputation, and track record of winning.

Look at your attorney’s peer-reviewed ratings, past clients with a drunk driving injury, and many years of experience they have with these types of cases. Be wary of “high-volume” practices as you may not receive the attorney input your case deserves. Often hectic law practices end up putting “case managers” and other nonlawyers in charge of the file.

Finally, make sure you have confidence in the attorney you choose when you meet with them. First impressions are usually accurate.

How much is my drunk driving injury worth?

There are many factors involved in the valuing of the personal injury caused by a drunk driver. There is no magic formula for valuing each case. Essential elements include objective reports of damage by medical professionals, the amounts of the medical bills incurred because of the accident, lost wages, the available insurance, and the reputation of the attorney handling the case. Because of the potential for punitive damages or angry jurors, drunk driving accident cases are valued higher than a typical car accident.
