Trevor Farquharson suffered life changing injuries


An appeal for witnesses to a motorbike crash in Highgate which left a man paralysed has failed to find out anymore information about what happened.

Father-of-two Trevor Farquharson was driving up Archway Road on his motorbike last year when he collided with a car, snapping his spinal column and suffering a broken neck.

The former fitness instructor remembers little of what happened and now has to use a wheelchair.

Mr Farquharson, of Colindale, was driving north up Archway Road on his red and black Honda motorcycle on February 15 in 2012 when he was knocked over near Highgate tube station at around 7.15pm.

Spine broken

Doctors said that had the break in his spinal column occurred only one inch higher he would also have lost all sensation in his arms.

A witness appeal was launched following the crash but nobody has come forward.

A spokesman from Fentons Solicitors, the firm acting on Mr Farquharson’s behalf, said they are still investigating as to whether they can continue with the claim given the lack of evidence but it is more likely that they will not be able to go ahead.
