    In August 2012, Martin was on his way home from work in Colorado Springs. This was a commute he often traveled on his motorcycle. "There was a lot of construction that day," said Martin. "I wasn’t aware that the road was down to one lane and as I braked, I slid downhill, swerved and hit the car in front of me." Martin severely broke his left leg in multiple places.
