Fresno Motorcycle Collisions Attorney

Here in the San Joaquin Valley, we ride. Some of us motorcycle in our commute to work, lane splitting Highway 41 when afternoon traffic grinds to a halt. Some of us melt the rubber off the tires of our sport bike on the twisted back roads of the Sierra foothills. Still others of us polish the chrome on a Harley-Davidson before riding with a group of friends on a Saturday afternoon. In the summer, we take a dual sport or ATV to the dunes of the Pacific Ocean

No one need tell us the hazards of our passion. Most drivers don’t keep a proper lookout for motorcyclists, and those that do look often don’t see. Cars turn left in front of us, trucks merge into us, and despite the fact that there is no bumper on a motorcycle, drivers tailgate us. In a collision, contact between vehicles that would result in an exchange of paint in a passenger car can be a lost limb on a motorcycle; and almost every motorcycle accident ends in a painful contact with the pavement.

We do what we can to safeguard ourselves. We check our tire pressure before we ride, wear DOT approved helmets, wrap our bodies in specialty riding gear, and invest in quality protective eyewear. Here at N&M, we are compelled to properly equip ourselves when we ride, because we regularly see the lifesaving effect of helmets, and the minimization of injury – particularly road rash – that comes from good safety gear.

Because we are legal professionals who ride in the central valley, we better understand the unique hazards riders face on the road, which in turn allows us to find a basis of liability in a resulting personal injury case. If you have been told that you don’t have a viable case after having been injured on a motorcycle, don’t abandon your claim until you have spoken with us. N&M regularly successfully prosecutes difficult motorcycle injury cases that other law firms reject.

Because we ride, we understand the gravity of loss which necessarily follows an injury that prevents you from riding. As such, the name Netzer & Malmo is synonymous with the zealous representation and advocacy of injured riders. Centrally based in Fresno, California, injured people come from all over the state to secure effective representation for their most critical legal needs, and for good reason. See what N&M clients are saying about the lawyers they rely upon when a bodily injury forever changes their lives.

After being injured on a motorcycle, access to medical treatment must be the first priority. Immediate needs should be addressed at emergency rooms and urgent care clinics; however, injuries often require ongoing or specialized medical attention which can be difficult to quickly access, even for those of us fortunate enough to have medical insurance coverage. The attorneys of Netzer & Malmo have been working in conjunction with the medical community for over two decades, and have developed relationships with medical doctors, radiologists, specialists, chiropractors, therapists and reconstructive surgeons to maximize N&M access to immediate medical care. Your first call to find the right medical resources for treatment of a personal injury is here.

Every victim in a motorcycle accident suffers unique and individual losses, and experiences the pain and suffering of injury differently. Netzer & Malmo will assist you in identifying, quantifying and valuing these losses so that your claim is fully understood and prosecuted to maximize your recovery. No one is ever fully compensated for the loss of enjoyment of life caused by an injury; however, the N&M claims management process assures that every compensable item of loss is identified and included in the recovery process.

The journey from bodily injury to monetary recovery in a motorcycle accident case can be a long, frustrating and complicated process, exacerbated by constant pain, and often worsened by the financial hardship that accompanies an injury-produced job loss. Retaining Netzer & Malmo as your legal advocate gives you the peace of mind to know your legal matter is safe in the caring, aggressive and competent hands of highly experienced personal injury attorneys. N&M is a full service law firm dedicated solely to representing the injured; your bodily injury claim is professionally handled from injury to settlement, award, verdict or judgment. N&M clients have the exclusive authority over whether to settle a case. Attorneys consistently provide N&M clients with written updates detailing the status of their legal matter, including relevant information and explanations of the claims and litigation process.
