I am sorry to hear about your accident.
Best to be seen in an urgent care or emergency room environment. The "gash" and abrasions may need to be cleansed or sutured. Tetanus boosts may be indicated. X-rays may also be necessary. Best wishes.

vomiting? Extreme fatigue? A possible concussion should be assessed. I am wondering if your gash needs to be sutured. Don't know extent of your abrasions. However, ER can address all of these issues including wound care for each abrasion & r/u fractures. Take care. I hope you are feeling better soon.
