Road Rash

Road rash is a type of injury sustained in Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle injuries vary from individual to individual and from accident to accident. Road rash is a painful skin injury that may require skin grafts and has a risk of infection. What can start out as a “minor” injury can result in serious disfigurement and scarring.

Working with medical professionals is a critical part of your recovery and can impact your ability to obtain fair compensation. You should work with your doctor and ensure that you follow and understand your treatment plan. Until you have a clear picture of your recovery and what your life after a motorcycle accident will look like, it is important that you do not accept a low settlement offer from an insurance claims adjuster. Talk with an experienced motorcycle road rash injury lawyer to ensure that your rights are protected.

Understanding Road Rash Injuries

Road rash is a painful motorcycle accident injury which occurs when a rider or passenger falls off the bike and his or her exposed skin skids on the pavement. This is why so many motorcycle riders wear durable clothing. Even with proper gear a motorcycle crash involving high speed can still result in serious skin abrasions and bruises.

A road rash injury involves damage to the skin, muscle and soft tissue, and in some cases, a bone may be bruised. Road rash may be a primary injury, or secondary to a more serious fracture or head injury. Serious infections can develop if gravel, dirt or other road debris remains in the wound. Some cases may require reconstructive surgery or skin grafting to treat and minimize substantial scarring and disfigurement.
