Road Rash Injuries

Motorcycle Accident Attorneys in Phoenix, AZ

Road rash is a term used to describe serious the abrasions that a motorcyclist suffers when his or her skin comes into contact with the ground in a motorcycle accident. Road rash injuries may range in severity and may be so significant that the skin, muscle, nerves, and even bone in the affected area are catastrophically damaged. Scarring, disfigurement, and loss of function can result from road rash.

Degrees of Road Rash Injuries

Road rash occurs when a motorcyclist makes contact with the road and skids or is dragged along the asphalt, pavement, or dirt. Even with denim, leather, or other protective clothing and other gear, the skin and tissue beneath may be severely damaged.

The following degrees of road rash may occur in a motorcycle collision:

  • Minor road rash: Minor scrapes, cuts, and reddening of the skin may occur, and treatment will typically be limited to cleaning and covering the wounds until they heal.
  • Moderate road rash: The skin may be broken with this type of road rash, and medical treatment may be required, but a victim is likely to make a full recovery with little scarring.
  • Severe road rash: These injuries involve damage to the skin and the tissue underneath, sometimes extending all the way down to the bone. Amputation may be required, or a victim may lose sensation and/or muscle control in the affected area.

As Phoenix motorcycle accident attorneys, we are here to help road rash victims recover the compensation they need for their complete and ongoing medical care, physical therapy, reconstructive surgery, and more. We welcome you to call for a free, confidential consultation with one of our attorneys, so you can find out what your case is worth and how we can help.
