If you read our library article on why you need to get medical treatment for road rash injuries in South Dakota motorcycle accidents , then you know how damaging and dangerous this type of motorcycle wreck injury can be to you or your loved ones.

However, for those who have suffered this type of injury and have been through the medical treatment, we thought it might be helpful to go over the three main types of road rash or road burn injuries that can occur:

Avulsion Injuries

This is the most severe type. Avulsion injuries occur when the road burn is so bad that your muscles, tendons, and even bones beneath the skin are showing.

Compression Injuries

Compression injuries occur when part of a rider's body, such as a leg and arm, gets crushed between two objects, such as the road and bike, while sliding. Broken bones can easily result.

Scraping Injuries

This is the most minor type. Painful scrapes and burns happen when the rider slides across the pavement. They require treatment to fight infection and may require stitches.

If you or a family member has suffered any one of these types of road burn injury in a South Dakota motorcycle accident that was not your fault, you may be able to earn financial compensation as a result. This money can cover your medical bills, future care, lost wages from missed time at work, and much more.

For more information about your legal rights in these cases, call the South Dakota personal injury attorneys of Zimmer, Duncan & Cole today for a free consultation. You can reach our Parker or Sioux Falls offices by calling toll free at (888) 733-2992 anytime.
