Treating road rash
One of the types of injuries which are very common after a road accident in Tameside, particularly for those riding motorcycles or pushbikes, is road rash. Road rash is exactly what it sounds like, the grazes and ‘rash’ type injury that comes from sliding across the road after being thrown from your vehicle. Road rash is very rarely a fatal or even serious injury, but it can be incredibly painful and inconvenient, and should be dealt with as quickly as possible to stop it from getting any worse.
- Call for help. Whenever you or someone else has been injured in a road accident it is safest to call the emergency services to get help.
