Blood Loss in a Degloving Injury
I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer. Riding a motorcycle comes with inherent risks. Safety precautions should always be taken before riding. People are encouraged to wear a helmet to protect against suffering injuries to the skull and brain. A separate license is often required to ride a motorcycle because of the significant difference between the protection you have on it as compared to a car. Long clothing is also encouraged because it can protect the skin from being degloved. For those who do not know, a degloving injury occurs when a hard surface forcibly removes and disconnects the skin from the soft tissue underneath. This type of injury can lead to severe complications, one of which is blood loss.
