Every year, thousands of pedestrians are hurt as a result of collisions in our state. These crashes are often preventable. However, many people end up suffering severe injuries as a result of drivers who are reckless and negligent while operating their vehicles. We see many pedestrians who are left with traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and even severely broken bones as a result of these preventable crashes in our state.
