Road Rash Injuries: Motorcycle Accidents in Alpharetta
Severe Abrasions or Road Rash
One of the most common serious injuries in motorcycle accident cases is road rash, or severe skin abrasions. This type of injury can be difficult to resolve, as there is road debris imbedded in the skin, and a high potential for serious infection, as well as requiring a long period of healing. Once healed, the skin and underlying tissue can be damaged, leaving permanent scars. These abrasions often cover a large area of the face, arms, legs, back or front of the body, and are extremely painful and can be permanently disfiguring. There are many nerve endings in the dermis, and the pain of these injuries is excruciating.
