Road Rash

Farmington Hills Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Road rash consists of skin injuries commonly sustained in motorcycle accidents. These injuries are a result of striking the pavement, which can also include sliding and being dragged. Road rash abrasions can range from minor to severe resulting in heavy bleeding and pain. In the more severe cases of road rash, the deeper layers of the skin (dermis) may be damaged. Severe pain may result due to the exposure of nerve endings.

If you have suffered a road rash injury in a motorcycle accident in or around Farmington Hills, you may be justified in pursuing legal compensation from the negligent driver. As a Farmington Hills motorcycle accident attorney with more than 20 years of experience, I have the legal knowhow to help you maximize your claim. My firm, Abrahams Law, provides experienced and committed legal representation in all types of personal injury claims, including those stemming from motorcycle and other types of traffic accidents.

Types of Road Rash Injuries

Road rash can include a variety of injuries. These include avulsion injury where all of the layers of the skin have been scraped off exposing underlying tissue, muscles, tendons, and even bone. Body parts such as ears and eyelids may be partially or fully torn off from the body. Avulsion injuries may require skin grafts; often these injuries result in scarring.

Other types of injuries that may fall into the category of road rash or road scrapes include compression injuries where a limb or body part is compressed between two objects. The affected area becomes bruised or torn as a result. Additional road injuries may include scrapes which tear tissue apart, especially occurring at high speeds. These types of scrapes often require stitches so that the area can begin to heal. Risk of infection is a factor in these types of injuries.
