Philadelphia Car Accident Attorney Awards $2,500 College Scholarship to Crash Victim as Part of the First-Ever MyPhillyLawyer Accident Survivor Scholarship
By Dean I. Weitzman, Esq. on December 21st, 2018
Philadelphia’s MyPhillyLawyer personal injury and car accident law firm has awarded its first-ever $2,500 MyPhillyLawyer Accident Survivor Scholarship to recognize and support victims of serious car crashes who are continuing to pursue their educational goals.
Also eligible to apply for the MyPhillyLawyer Accident Survivor Scholarship are victims of medical errors or other life-threatening incidents caused by negligence. Applicants can be students in law school or college.
The scholarship was created in recognition of the many stories of accident victims which show perseverance, drive and dedication to recovery after suffering devastating physical or mental injuries.
The first-ever winner of the $2,500 award is Ryan Brady, 19, of Weymouth, Mass. A student at Salve Regina University in Newport, R.I., Brady was a passenger in an SUV occupied by several friends on April 9, 2016, when the vehicle veered off a road and crashed into a tree, killing one passenger and injuring another person in the vehicle.
It takes immense courage to find the inner strength to succeed and focus on helping others after surviving a devastating, life-altering accident. Ryan’s refusal to let the incident define him is an inspiration to countless others trying to rebuild their lives in the face of challenges. MyPhillyLawyer is proud to support his higher education with this scholarship.
In the course of our work, the attorneys of MyPhillyLawyer have met many people struggling with life-altering injuries. We consider it a privilege to be able to assist families in obtaining compensation for such injuries, and we decided that we want to give back to the community in another way as well.
We have been particularly inspired by the young people we have met who have overcome serious injuries and gone on to succeed in higher education or in law school, and we established this scholarship to help them.
The scholarship will be offered each year to a student who has suffered a serious injury resulting from another’s negligence and is entering or enrolled in an accredited law school or college.
Students who wish to apply should submit a brief personal statement of 500 words or less about how the incident affected the student’s life and how they overcame their injury. The winner of the scholarship will be based on the strength of the personal statement.
The deadline for applications for the 2019 MyPhillyLawyer Accident Survivor Scholarship is Sept. 30, 2019.
