Austin Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Veteran Motorcycle Accident Victim

Headlines in Killeen, Texas newspapers are too often similar to the following:

"Fort Hood Army Sergeant Dies in Motorcycle Accident - Family Remembers His Life." This headline is not made up. It was written about a young Fort Hood soldier who lost his life near his home in Killeen, Texas.

As is typical of so many motorcycle accident victims, this soldier survived a tour of duty. In his case, that duty was Operation Iraqi Freedom. During his seven years of military service, he had earned numerous awards, honors, and decorations including, among many others, three Army Good Conduct medals, the National Defense Service medal, and the Iraqi Campaign medal with Campaign Star. Left behind were his loving family, including a daughter and a son. Also left behind were his military brothers who spoke at his memorial.

Austin, Texas motorcycle attorney Ray King understands that tragic accidents can happen to the bravest of all - those military personnel who risk their lives to defend our freedom. If you or a loved one has been injured or if a loved one has died in a motorcycle accident that was caused by some else’s negligence or the negligence of the motorcycle manufacturer, Ray King will help you learn about your rights to obtain fair compensation. Call (512) 637-1000 today.

Too Common of a Loss

Motorcycle crashes have long been too common throughout the military. Austin’s Statesman conducted its own investigation and found high numbers of motor vehicle crashes - especially motorcycle crashes among Texas veterans who had returned home after a foreign tour of duty.

Certainly many accidents occurred as a result of risky behavior on the part of the soldier. After all, surviving the trauma of bullets and improvised explosive devices in Afghanistan and then returning home to the relative safety of Texas roads would make anyone feel invincible. Tragic deaths and serious injuries suffered by veterans in motorcycle crashes were not all the fault of riders taking chances. Those in the military who choose to ride bikes are well trained in a mentorship program as well as in three separate motorcycle safety training courses.

Motorcycle Safety in the Military

The Fort Hood motorcycle mentorship program pairs a new rider with another soldier who has years of motorcycle riding experience. Within seven days of acquiring a motorcycle or within seven days of a motorcyclist arriving at Fort Hood, soldiers are required to enroll in an approved motorcycle safety course. Soldiers who ride motorcycles must execute a written motorcycle safety contract with their commander. These contracts are explained in the Fort Hood Motorcycle Safety program. Riders are required to carry with them the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) card that is issued upon completion of safety training.

You Fought for Our Country, We Fight for Your Rights

Texas motorcycle attorney Ray King only represents injured bikers and families of bikers who have died in motorcycle accidents. Drivers often fail to give motorcyclists the respect they deserve on Texas highways. Insurance companies frequently try to take advantage of bikers and discriminate against them just because they ride. If you are a veteran who has been injured in a motorcycle accident caused by another’s negligence, call (512) 637-1000 to discuss the details of your case.
