On a -45 degree day in January 2014, Paul was driving down Ontario's eastbound 407 highway on his way to make a delivery, when his vehicle skidded on a patch of black ice and slid into a guard rail.
The company truck he was driving was totalled. At first Paul could not even see or hear his assistant because the man, who had been sitting in the passenger seat, was completely obscured by the wreckage.
Ultimately though, it was Paul, not his passenger, who sustained serious injuries and was left unable to work for over a year. In that time, Paul has received only one cheque -- a couple of weeks' worth of compensation from the Workers' Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB).
