A doctor left paralysed from the waist down after his new bike broke in half has sought £10m in damages.
Dr Daniel Gordon, a junior at Inverness’ Raigmore Hospital, was travelling at about 15mph on a grassy slope when the carbon front forks on the bike failed and he crashed.
He suffered life-changing spinal cord injuries in the August 2020 incident and is now dependent on a wheelchair.
His lawyers, Stewarts, have raised a compensation claim against insurers Arch and Chubb. The two firms have been approached for comment.
