Motorcyclist may seek compensation after road traffic accident

A road traffic accident that left a motorcyclist with several broken bones could result in a claim for personal injury compensation.

The 42-year-old road user sustained serious leg injuries during an incident on the A950 road in northern Scotland, which involved his vehicle colliding with three other motorists, according to online news resource STV.

As a result of this accident, the motorcyclist is now being treated in the nearby Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, an institution managed by NHS Grampian, while police investigate what happened.

While the cause of the crash is not yet known, the man could decide to seek compensation if it is ruled that the incident was not his fault and was instead caused by the negligence of his counterparts on the road.

Inspector Roddy MacInnes told the news source that all involved in the collision had been lucky to escape.

"We are extremely fortunate that this collision did not have more tragic consequences," he noted.
