When a rider is thrown from the motorcycle during an accident, it’s not unusual for them to suffer serious road burns, also called road rash. The painful scrapes and bruises can become easily infected, leading to far more severe injuries. Further, the result of most road rashes is lifelong scarring. Depending on the body part(s) affect, serious scarring can also lead to debilitating lifelong emotional challenges.

When a biker is dragged along the road and their skin comes into contact with the ground, especially if there is a lot of road debris or gravel, the burns and bruises sustained can be extremely serious. If not attended to properly and expeditiously, the result can be life-threatening infection and disfiguring scarring.
There are many types of injuries that fall into the category of road rash or road burn, including:
Road rash is an extremely painful condition made worse by the knowledge that these burns may leave scars that will remind you of your accident forever.
