Motorcycle Accidents: Broken Bones and Road Rash

Posted by attorney Christopher Zachar

Motorcycle Accidents and Road Rash

Motorcyclists often wear leathers, long pants, long shirts, and gloves even in very warm weather. Most do this to prevent road rash. If you were hit by a negligent driver, knocked off your bike, and skidded across a roadway, and now have road rash, the pain can be intense. Road rash is painful because it exposes sensitive nerve endings while often doing little more than surface damage. Additionally road rash can cause permanent scarring and disfigurement.

Motorcycle Accidents and Broken Bones

Injured motorcyclists often face broken bones. Sadly, these broken bones can result in paralysis. Paralysis is devastating to injured riders and their families. Paralysis can require a wheelchair, modifications to homes, and other accommodations. Physical therapy can also be an expense. Who pays for your medical bills and special accommodations? Our attorney aggressively pursues compensation for these injuries. Although no amount of money can reverse the damages, obtaining appropriate compensation allows people to live a full life with the necessary medical care and accommodations.
