Road rash from a motorcycle accident usually results in permanent scarring and is a valuable injury. Even a minor scar is worth a lot of money.
Motorcyclists Can Get Money For a Minor Scar or Road Rash In New York
In New York, people injured in a car accident are required to have a serious injury. But motorcyclists are not.
In New York, motorcyclists are not entitled to no-fault insurance benefits, so that means motorcyclists can get money for the most minor scar or road rash from a personal injury claim in a motorcycle accident.

Our client had a motorcycle accident in Suffolk County, New York causing the 2nd-degree road rash shown in this photo. The road rash caused a permanent scar. See other types of permanent scars from motorcycle accidents.
Road Rash Over Your Tattoo Can “Mess Up” Your Tattoo!
If you have a tattoo, road rash can destroy the artwork of your tattoo or even result in removing the tattoo. It’s sort of like disfiguring a valuable painting on your wall.
A scar from road rash is a valuable injury worth a lot of money when settling a motorcycle accident case. But road rash that disfigures, distorts, or messes up your tattoo art results in additional damages worth even more money.
These 2 photos show intricate tattoo art that was horribly defaced by road rash.
This photo shows our client’s entire tattoo on his shoulder and arm.
This photo shows how road rash (abrasion with the road) removed a large piece of the tattoo.
