The Consequences of a Degloving

Deglovings (called “avulsions” in the medical world) can occur on any part of the body, including limbs, the face, and torso, but for motorcyclists, the majority occur on the hands. When a rider is forced to lay down his bike or is thrown against the pavement, the force of the collision can pull the layers of skin and underlying tissue away from his hand. While surgeons will work to minimize the long-term damage, the victim is still at risk for:

The Dangers of Negligent Drivers

Deglovings are common in motorcycle and moped accidents, but they can occur whenever a large vehicle strikes someone who is exposed, such as a pedestrian or bicyclist. Human error is the primary cause for these collisions and any subsequent injuries; however, these is no excuse for causing such horrific trauma to another person, and negligence should be punished.

If a driver committed one of the following actions and caused a crash, he could be held liable for a biker’s degloving injury:

Covering the Costs of a Motorcycle Accident

Deglovings come with a high price tag. Injured bikers require immediate medical attention at an emergency room to deal with the risk of blood loss. Once doctors have ensured that the biker’s life is not in danger, they must repair the damage to the musculoskeletal system of the affected area. For example, if a motorcycle rider has a degloved hand, then surgeons will take steps to reattach the muscles, nerves, blood vessels, and skin. This can include using reconstructive techniques such as skin flaps, skin grafts, revascularization, and sclerotherapy.

After this repair, the biker may need long-term treatment to regain control of his limb. If he suffered nerve damage, doctors may prescribe medication and physical therapy to mitigate the symptoms and prevent mobility issues. Unfortunately, the biker may still feel chronic pain and have partial paralysis due to the degloving, adding further hardships to his future.

If a negligent driver caused you to crash, you should not be the one paying for these damages. That driver’s insurance company should provide full compensation for your injuries, including any long-term care, lost wages, physical pain, and the emotional trauma of the accident. Unfortunately, most insurance companies are only focused on their bottom line, which means they will try as hard as possible to devalue your claim.

To get the most out of a civil claim and get your life back on track, you need to work with a dedicated personal injury team who will account for every cent you lost due to the accident.
