What to do if you are bitten by a dog?

Motorcyclists have a number of issues to keep an eye on when they are on the road. This is because they are less protected by their vehicle than other drivers. As a direct result of that, many motorcyclists who get into accidents can end up facing severe injuries due to being unprotected.

One type of injury is known as road burn, road rash, or skid injuries. Road rash is defined as a moderate or severe case of abrasion by Merriam-Webster’s dictionary. This type of injury occurs when a person’s body is dragged against the rough pavement of a road. The abrasive action usually causes a skid mark, or “burn”, on the person’s skin. This burn can vary in degrees of intensity. For example, some people may get a slight road burn beneath their clothing if they hit the ground at a fast speed.

On the other hand, there are very serious skid injuries. If someone comes into contact with the road and their skin is uncovered, there is no protective layer to keep them safe. This can result in massive areas of the skin being sanded down. Excessive bleeding and even muscle injury can occur in a very serious case of road burn. Additionally, some types of road burn may require a skin graft. This is to help aid in the healing process but it can be costly, painful, and can leave a person looking different than they did before.

Because of all of these factors, road burns are actually much more serious injuries than many people think when they first hear the name. For this reason, motorcyclists who get into an accident and suffer from skid injuries need to get care quickly.
