Road Rash Injuries in a Motorcycle Accident

With the advent of Summer more motorcyclists are getting out and enjoying the country roads and state routes in and outside of the Louisville area.  Unfortunately this means an increase in motorcycle accidents resulting in injuries.  While many of these accidents result in broken bones and fractures or more serious injuries most will include “road rash.”  Road rash injuries in a motorcycle accident occur when an individual suffers extensive abrasions due to contact with the road during the course of an accident.

The heat and friction between the motorcyclist and the road can remove several layers of skin and sometimes even deeper layers of tissue.  Although most road rash will thankfully heal in a few weeks, other cases will require more extensive medical treatment, including skin grafting.

One of the primary concerns with road rash injuries in a motorcycle accident is infection.  Even those who are treated in a medical setting and take proper care of their injuries can develop a severe infection.  Road rash may seem to may to be a relatively minor injury, but it is extremely painful and can be expensive to treat, especially when operations are required to repair the extent of these injuries.  In severe cases, road rash can leave permanent disfigurement.
