Road Rash Treatment: Skin Graft for Burns from a Bicycle Accident

Road rash is a common injury associated with bicycle accidents and motorcycle accidents on Colorado roadways, although it is possible to sustain road rash injuries from other types of accidents as well. It occurs when the skin scrapes against the pavement or other rough surface.

Road rash is measured in degrees, much like burns, and the more serious the road rash injury is, the more likely you will need extensive medical intervention. If you experience first-degree, or minor road rash, you will have redness of the skin and probably do not need any medical treatment.
