Road Rash From a Motorcycle Accident
Our Motorcycle Wreck Attorneys Fight for Maximum Compensation
To those who have never experienced road rash, it may seem like a fairly mild motorcycle injury, when compared to the trauma of a head, leg, or arm injury. In fact, road rash increases the risk of medical complications following any of those injuries.
Road rash can sometimes be severe, painful, and even deadly if infection, such as sepsis or MRSA set in from bacteria, and can result in lengthy rehabilitation and permanent scarring.
If you or someone you know was involved in a motorcycle accident and sustained a road rash injury, you may be entitled to compensation. Choose an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer. Click here to contact us or call 1-866-900-7078.

What is Road Rash?
Road rash occurs when the motorcyclist’s exposed skin makes contact with the pavement or other surface during a motorcycle crash. It’s characterized by injury to the soft tissue, including skin and muscle. Sometimes, road rash can penetrate all of the layers of skin and require skin graft surgery to heal. In minor motorcycle accidents, a rider or passenger may walk away with scrapes and bruises. Road rash, however, can be severe and lead to an infection if dirt, gravel, glass, or other debris enters deep into the wound.
Our personal injury lawyers may be able to help you pursue compensation for medical bills, lost time from work, reconstructive surgery and other costs.

Treating road rash may cause excessive medical bills, loss of income, and the prospect of long-term care and rehabilitation from skin grafts and post-infection care. That is why financial difficulties after a motorcycle accident are not all that uncommon.
We have handled hundreds of motorcycle injury cases, and we understand what you are going through. Don’t let the insurance company tell you what your options are. Let us listen to your concerns and show you all the options you have to try to help you get your life back on track.
