Justice for Critically-Injured Biker JJ Taylor

Justice for J.J. and all Bikers 
Without a life flight … and highly trained medical personnel at Vanderbuilt Hospital JJ Taylor would not be here today. JJ and his buddy were almost killed by Travis Burkhart, a drunk driver at 3X the legal limit.

Being irresponsible can take a man from this…. To this…. where his mother can barely recognize him this. It can make a motorcycle and turn it into something that even I can’t identify and I’ve ridden motorcycles for 47 years now.

There’s Travis failing his field sobriety test with flying colors, which his victim fights for his life on a medivac to the hospital.

The story was covered in the local press and I am going to keep covering it on citizen press as the case goes forward.

JJ’s medical bills are $700,000.00. I know his mother and I know they are struggling under the weight of all of this, including her going to see him from Arkansas. His medical bills are a staggering ¾ of a million dollars and Mr. Burkhart’s insurance carrier won’t even release the minimal $25,000.00 liability without a full waiver and J.J.’s mother will simply not do that:

Yes Chris he would have died on the scene without the life flight. When the front wheel hit it threw my Boo backwards and his helmet came off. That's when the chin strap tore the carotid artery. Then he went forward and hit the truck with no helmet. His femur was 4 inches out of his knee and his body temperature dropped to 92….

There was a lady there at the scene that saw it. She got out and stood over him praying out loud. And which probably kept other cars from running him over. Her daughter reached out to me at the hospital. I’m gonna do my best to meet her.

People:
Stop and think about what you are doing and who you are endangering when you’ve had more than a couple and you get out on the highway and act a fool. You can do damage in a split second that will last a lifetime.

I’ll be following the criminal case and providing updates right here and you can see some of the statements from the Prosecuting Attorney in Montgomery County regarding the February 25 Probable Cause hearing at which point the State will ask that he be bound over to the Grand Jury for heightened Felony charges.

The State originally proceeded with Vehicular Assault because it carries greater penalties than DUI.
