Motorcycle Accidents & Road Rash Injuries

A motorcycle accident can result in serious and debilitating injuries. Even when traveling at relatively low speeds, motorcyclists face the potential for catastrophic injuries.  Road rash is one of the most commonly sustained injuries from a motorcycle crash. Depending on the severity of the injury, road rash can result in a lengthy period of rehabilitation along with permanent and disfiguring scarring.

Road rash is the term commonly used to describe soft tissue damage and skin and bone abrasion that results when a rider hits or scrapes exposed skin against road surfaces after falling off or being thrown from a motorcycle. Road rash can range in severity from minor skin abrasions to extensive tissue and muscle damage that requires immediate medical care. Injured bikers sustain road rash primarily on their arms and legs, hands, face, and back.

Degrees of Road Rash Injuries

  • First Degree road rash looks like a bad sunburn. The surface of the skin is red, but not bleeding or broken. Medical Treatment isn’t typically required.
  • Second Degree road rash occurs when the skin is broken and bleeding. Medical treatment may not be required but over-the-counter creams and ointment will help heal the affected areas.
  • Third Degree road rash occurs when all layers of the skin are damaged and you can see fat layers and tissue. Medical care should be sought immediately.
