Hawkins Spizman Personal Injury Law Firm
Car Accident Survivor Scholarship
The Hawkins Spizman Personal Injury Law Firm is proud to announce the Car Accident Survivor Scholarship, worth $1,000.
Every year, more than 2 million people visit the emergency room due to injuries caused by motor vehicle accidents. Crashes can have a sudden and sometimes irreversible impact on victims’ lives. They may lose the ability to work, go to school and live life in general like they did before their wreck. Perhaps the worst fact is that most of these accidents could be prevented. One of the most common causes of car accidents is distracted driving, often due to cell phone use. Drunk driving, reckless driving and other actions taken by drivers cause some of the worst preventable accidents on the roads today.
If you have been seriously injured in a car accident, you personally know the devastating effects it can have. You may have had to change your entire lifestyle to adapt to the new challenges you face. Yet, you are a survivor, and refuse to give up. For that reason, we are proud to help you achieve your goal of going to college by easing the financial burden of secondary education with our Car Accident Survivor Scholarship.
