Bader Scott Injury Lawyers encourages college-bound students who suffered injuries while working to apply for our annual Workers’ Compensation Scholarship. The scholarship winner will receive $2,500 to apply to their pursuit of higher education. The deadline to apply was December 15, 2022.
Looking for Students Who Have Suffered Injury on the Job
In our practice, Bader Scott Injury Lawyers has represented more than its share of workers who have become injured on the job. From working with our clients, we know all too well the debilitating effect of pain and the emotional stress of suffering an injury—on top of the anxiety that stems from missing work during recovery.
“For students who have shown the responsibility to maintain a job, only to suffer an injury during their work, we feel it is important to offer a glimmer of hope,” said Seth Bader, owner of Bader Scott Injury Lawyers. “We developed the Workers’ Compensation Scholarship as a vessel of this hope.”
“Our message to these students is that we applaud your sense of responsibility, and we believe in you,” Managing Partner Luis Scott added. “Do not give up on your dreams.”
