As one of the top personal injury law firms in Washington, DC, Cohen & Cohen has been committed to helping auto accident victims and their families since 1993. We have seen the devastation and financial hardships auto accidents can cause and try to help by fighting tirelessly to defend the legal rights of those whose lives have been negatively affected by auto accidents. We also know and value that there are many other people and professions out there that help to prevent auto accidents, help people at the scene of accidents, and help people to try to recover physically and emotionally from accidents, etc. We encourage all important work that is done to help others.
To this end, our law firm has created the Cohen & Cohen Auto Safety Scholarship, for an outstanding student who is committed to promoting auto and road safety and/or to helping auto accident victims and their families. Examples of people who we think contribute to this include but are not limited to: auto designers, engineers and manufacturers; civil engineers; law enforcement officers; doctors, nurses and therapists; lawyers who defend the rights of auto accident victims; politicians and lobbyists, etc.
We believe that by helping to fund the education of a student who has career goals to make our roads a safer place and/or who has goals to help those who the roads have been unsafe for, it will ultimately provide justice to people who live and travel in the United States.
