Alone, broke, due to testicle pain
A Repentigny man is more than frustrated after suffering an unusual on-the-job injury.
Sylvain Soucy says he developed intense pain in his left testicle after pulling his groin while lifting a battery. The groin pull eventually healed but the testicle pain did not go away.
Soucy says the constant pain has ruined his life. His wife left him and he can no longer work as a heavy equipment mechanic.
Because he is no longer eligible for CSST payments and his insurer is refusing disability payments, Sousy has declared bankruptcy.
His union has filed a grievance on his behalf about the way his employer handled the case.
