Injuries from a motorcycle accident can require long-term care

While there are many different benefits to riding a motorcycle in California, there is one significant drawback: motorcyclists have little protection from external forces a collision. Yes, many motorcyclists wear helmets and other protective gear, but, in many cases, those safety measures do not help much when another vehicle slams into the motorcycle.

As a result, motorcyclists who are involved in a car accident are likely to suffer serious injuries, such as neck injuries, broken bones and even brain injuries. In the best-case scenario, these motorcyclists are able to recover after they receive the proper medical treatment. But, in the worst-case scenario, these individuals may suffer permanent disability, resulting in the need for long-term care.

However, the people who find themselves facing the worst-case scenario may not realize the true cost of long-term care. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates that those who need a private room at a nursing home could face a $7,000 per month bill.

Those who need less intensive care, perhaps at an assisted-living facility, will still face costs of about $3,300 per month. And, even those who may only need assistance from a home health aide can still expect to pay approximately $21 per hour for those services.

There is no doubt about it: motorcycle accidents can have a significant impact on a victim's life. But, for those who have been injured in a motorcycle accident, it may be possible to pursue compensation from the party who caused the accident in a personal injury lawsuit.
