Road Rash and Broken Bones

Denver Colorado Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Riding a motorcycle can be a wonderful past time, especially in the state of Colorado. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents do occur and when they do, they can leave cyclists with a myriad of complicated and painful injuries. A motorcycle’s frame offers very little protection during an accident and as a result, the majority of the impact is absorbed by the human body. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), almost 100,000 motorcyclists are injured every year. Two of the most painful motorcycle injuries are road rash and broken bones. When the motorcycle is overturned, the motorcyclist is at risk for getting road rash. Road rash is also known as a road burn and it is a painful abrasion that occurs when motorcyclists are thrown off of their motorcycles during a collision or single bike crash. When the cyclist is thrown from his bike, his skin slides along the pavement causing a serious abrasion that is often imbedded with pieces of road dirt, gravel and glass. Severe cases of road rash may require skin grafts, plastic surgeries and rehabilitation in order to fully recover and victims may still be left with extensive scarring and permanent disfigurement. Other injuries that occur when motorcyclists are thrown from their bikes are broken bones. While some fractures (broken bones) can be mild and require simple casting, others are more severe and may require pins, plates, traction and even multiple surgeries to fully heal. Even after such extensive treatment, some injuries never fully heal and leave victims with lifelong pain, discomfort and limited mobility. If the fracture has broken the skin, the cyclist may also be at risk for infection. If you or someone you love has suffered a severe broken bone or road rash after a motorcycle accident, it is important to contact a Colorado personal injury attorney immediately. Your attorney will be able to assist you throughout the entire legal process to ensure that you receive the compensation you need to fully recover after your motorcycle accident.
