Police appeal has potential to aid compensation claim
A Yorkshire man has been airlifted to Leeds General Infirmary following a motorbike accident in which he suffered serious personal injuries.
The 49-year-old was riding his green Kawasaki motorcycle when he suffered the motorbike accident, colliding with a silver Honda 4WD.
Doctors at the hospital say that the rider is in a serious condition.
It has been established that both vehicles were travelling in the direction of Otley at the time of the motorbike accident; however, police are keen to find out more about the circumstances of the collision and have appealed for any witnesses to step forward by calling the Harrogate Road Policing Group on 0845 6060247.
Not only could witness accounts help police establish the causes of the accident, they may also be invaluable in the mounting of any no win, no fee claim for injuries sustained in the crash.
