“Road Rash” And Other Injuries Resulting From Motorcycle Accidents

As seen in the Illinois motorcycle accidents that have caused injuries and have been summarized on this site, there are a broad range of injuries that can result from motorcycle accidents.

One type of typical injury is skin abrasion.  This type of injury is commonly referred to as “road rash.”  Road rash was an injury cited in the minor motorcycle accident that involved Luke Ford and recently happened in Georgia, as seen in the August 16, 2018 thesouthern.com article titled “Minor motorcycle crash injures Carterville native Luke Ford.”

“Road rash” can happen during a crash, when the motorcyclist’s body slides along the roadway.  Such may also happen if the motorcyclist “lays down the bike” in order to avoid an accident.

“Road rash” is also common during bicycle crashes.

One way to lessen the possibility of “road rash” is to wear protective clothing.  While, in theory, skin abrasions can happen on various parts of the body, due to various reasons the leg and hip area are among the most susceptible.

If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, there are many reasons why it is advisable to get a thorough medical exam.  This medical exam, commonly performed in the emergency room (ER), can check and assess injuries that are both readily apparent as well as injuries that may not be apparent.  There are many types of serious injuries that may not exhibit symptoms immediately after the accident.  In fact, some of these injuries may not exhibit symptoms for many hours after the accident.  Some of these injuries with “delayed onset” symptoms can be life-threatening in nature if they go untreated.  Among potentially serious injuries of this type are internal bleeding and traumatic brain injuries.

Additional discussion as to why a medical exam is valuable after a crash – from both medical and legal standpoints – is discussed on the “Reasons For Getting A Medical Exam After A Motorcycle Accident” page.
