Road Rash Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Motorcycle Road Rash Accident
Motorcyclists have very little protection in the event of an accident and can quickly be thrown from their motorcycle, or when they lay down their bike, causing a dragging to occur over the pavement through the course of a wreck. The Houston motorcycle accident attorney at the Pascoe Law Firm recognize the catastrophic potential of these types of accident. We represent the motorcycle riders who have been injured with road rash and other injuries following a motorcycle wreck. Many say their lives have been forever changed due to their injuries. Road rash is one of the more painful, debilitating and traumatic injuries you could experience while operating a motorcycle and the damage can include emotional turmoil, permanent disability and physical pain and suffering.
Seriousness of Road Rash Injuries
- First Degree Road Rash — A minor road rash injuries are simple scrapes, cuts and the reddening of the skin. Most people who suffer from first-degree road rash can recover on their own with personal care and attention to the wounds during the healing process.
- Second Degree Road Rash — The second stage of severity is when the injury breaks the skin but does not affect deep tissue. There may be redness, pain, and bleeding where the victim requires medical treatment, but the long-term prognosis is often very favorable. Most people can recover without any permanent scarring.
- Third Degree Road Rash— our Texas motorcycle injury lawyers have found third-degree road rash to be a severe and debilitating form of injury. Victims have near complete skin loss, and their deep tissue such as fat, muscle, and cartilage are exposed and visible. Muscle tissue can also be pulled away from the bone, resulting in the need for surgical repair. The complications that accompany third-degree road rash include the possibility of infection, a possible need for amputation and the presence of thick and unsightly scars even after the victim has received multiple skin grafts.
