NJ Skilled Personal Injury Accident Lawyer Fights for Damages for Riders Suffering from Road Rash, Infections and Scarring

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.

If you or someone you care about was in a motorcycle crash in Essex, Hudson, Union or Middlesex counties and suffered road rash or any other injuries, contact a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer who specializes in fighting for people hurt in motorcycle accidents. Team Law’s Andrew Prince, Esq. will work tirelessly to hold the other motorist responsible for their negligence and for maximum compensation for your injuries.
What is Road Rash and Why Is It So Dangerous?

Most bikers dress appropriately when they head out on the road on their motorcycles. However, even the toughest jackets, boots and helmets are no match for hard pavement. 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:

  • Injuries that Require Stitches: When the skin is scraped against the ground at high speed, open wounds that require stitches are common. There is a serious risk of infection if these wounds are not properly cleaned and treated right away.
  • Avulsion Injuries: There are many levels of skin scrapes. When the biker or passenger are dragged along the pavement, it’s not uncommon for all of the layers of skin to be stripped. This type of injury is also known as a full-thickness wound and may require significant surgeries and skin grafts. Serious scarring is also likely.
  • Compression Injuries: When the foot, arm or other body part of the biker or passenger gets caught in between the motorcycle and the road, bones can be fractured or crushed. Of course, serious bruising is also likely.

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. Further, medical bills — current ones for treatment immediately after the accident as well as the costs of treatment in the future — will pile up fast. If you are out of work recovering, you may be missing out on a paycheck, as well.

Contact a savvy motorcycle accident injury lawyer who will protect your rights and deal with the insurance company on your behalf. You need to focus on treatment and recovery; Mr. Prince will fight for maximum compensation for your and your family.
