When involved in any accident resulting in personal injury, there are steps that you should follow to ensure physical, financial, and legal protection for yourself:
- The most important thing to do is to go to a doctor and get medical attention immediately for any bodily injury.

- Contact your attorney. If you do not have one, Valiant Advocates will search for a local qualified personal injury attorney in your area.

The average settlement for a motorcycle accident can range from a few hundred of dollars to millions. The motorcycle accident settlement depends a lot on the facts of the motorcycle accidents such as who caused the accident, the injuries sustained, how much coverage is available on the insurance coverages (at-fault party, your personal auto insurance policy, homeowner insurance, assets available from the at-fault party). A motorcycle accident lawyer should be able to look into all the factors of your case.
