Phoenix Degloving Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
In a motorcycle accident, motorcyclists often hit the ground or other objects at high speeds. Even riders with full body protection can sustain considerable injuries, such as road rash and degloving injury, at the moment of impact. A degloving injury occurs when skin, muscles, tendons and/or nerves are separated or pulled from the bone and the blood supply to surrounding tissue is disrupted. This type of injury is not only gruesome but also often severe, as victims can be left with nerve damage and scarring, and sometimes even amputation may be required.
There are two types of degloving injuries:
- In the first type, the skin is torn off and the blood supply to the underlying tissue is severed. Skin grafts are often required for victims of this type of degloving injury.
- In the second type, the blood vessels get severed although the skin remains intact. The affected tissue may become necrotic due to the lack of blood. Additionally, the skin may become loose or slack because it is disconnected from the underlying tissue.
In many motorcycle crash cases, the victim experiences degloved tearing of the skin off knees, shoulders, hands and feet.
If you have suffered a degloving injury after a motorcycle accident, you will likely need to undergo surgical procedures, the costs of which can be quite high. Our attorneys can fight to get you compensation for all current and future medical costs associated with the injury. If medical treatment does not result in complete recovery, and you're unable to return to your work, you may also be entitled to compensation for lost wages and loss of earning capacity. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may receive additional coverage for other damages, including pain and suffering and mental anguish.
