Motorcycle Accident Injury Attorney and Military Personnel

Motorcycles are enjoyable to ride, even when it is to travel to and from work and this includes military personnel. Every branch of the military is different, but the one thing that all military personnel agree on as kindred spirits, whether as a MARSOC operator, Combat Swimmer, Ranger, Green Beret, or venerable U.S. Navy SEAL, bikes simply are not able to stand up to the same type of accidents as cars and other motor vehicles even though they are manned by tough troopers who are a cut above your typical civilians.

Since most bikes are on two wheels, instead of four like a common passeger vehicle, an impact even at a slow speed will be devastating and cause injuries to the rider. This does not go unnoticed by each branch of the military and their upper echelons either, and there are often requirements for the rider to help ensure their safety on base, as well as off base, including training classes. Marines are especially strict on their officers and enlisted personnel when it comes to rider safety.

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident as active duty or reserve military, it is important to have representation by a motorcycle accident attorney who not only has experience representing motorcycle accident victims, but who is also former military, and a brother in arms in understanding what command has to say about all of this. Ehline Law Firm Personal Injury Attorneys, APLC, has this experience and is committed to providing the injured rider with the best possible representation. Attorney Michael Ehline is a motorcycle rider and having served in the Marine’s understands soldiers and their families need special representation after a motorcycle accident in places like Camp Pendleton and 29 Palms, all the way to Tracen, Petaluma CG Base.

Motorcycle accidents happen for specific reasons and among these the most common is the motorcycle collision with a motor vehicle like a car, truck or bus, and the annual statistics prove this. When a motor-cycle mishap is the direct fault of the driver of a motor vehicle, they can be held responsible under California tort laws in most cases. There are also motorcycle accidents that can be attributed to design or aftermarket parts, in which the manufacturer can be held accountable.

The most common of these is known as the "Harley Wobble." In some cases motorcycle collisions can occur due to road conditions and when it does, it could be caused by lack of proper care of the roads by the agency entrusted to care for them.
