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

​Road rash occurs when a victim makes contact with the road and is dragged for an extended distance. Despite most efforts to cover the entire body as a protective measure, leather and denim are not always able to protect the skin during an accident that causes the victim to be thrown from his or her bike or pulled along the asphalt or concrete. The result is the tearing of the skin as well as the tissue beneath it, and in the worst cases, the injury extends all the way to the bone.

There are three degrees of road rash injuries that follow below.

  • 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.

​The Emotional Trauma Caused by Road Rash

​Our Texas motorcycle injury attorney recognize that the extent of road rash injuries goes beyond physical impairment. Victims often suffer from esteem issues when the wounds have permanently altered their appearances. It can be difficult for them to return to or maintain their status at work and their scars can negatively impact their social lives. If you’ve suffered severe disfigurement or the loss of a limb, the emotional turmoil of adapting to living with a disability can be very taxing.
