A Canadian neurosurgeon who crashed his rare Ferrari F40 in 2012 is demanding British Columbia’s public auto insurer pay an estimated $982,000 citing "insult" to his “sense of dignity.” Dr. Navraj Heran is suing the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia claiming they owe him more money for his accident because the vehicle has been absent from shows and it's “embarrassing.”
At the time of the accident, the ICBC offered Heran $503,000, but that wasn’t enough for Heran and an arbitrator ruled the payout should total $696,000. The car eventually had to be shipped to Toronto for repairs, upping the payout to $790,000. Now, Heran is asking for $982,000 in his latest civil claim saying it was “unsettling and embarrassing” for him to leave the Ferrari out of his vehicle collection, which he frequently displays to the public.

“The show absence of the vehicle is not a matter the plaintiff should have to repeatedly deal with on a public basis,” says Heran. A judge ruled that his “embarrassment” claim should be struck from his claim as it looks “frivolous.” As of now, the case remains unresolved.
