Accident Helper’s Scholarship 2019
At John K. Zaid we have a passion for protecting injured people and defending their legal right to hold the party that caused their injury, accountable for their negligent or malicious actions. It is bad enough that bad things happen to good people but we feel especially compassionate when innocent people are injured from something that could have been prevented had the party that caused the injury been conducting themselves in a manner that is reasonable to expect in the same or similar situation. We feel fortunate to be able to help others in a way that we are passionate about.
In our 15 years of defending the rights of personal injury victims and their families, we have come to increasingly admire and appreciate the many different people that have also shown compassion for injured people and have fought for them in different ways. From doctors, nurses, therapists, social workers, law enforcement, other kinds of lawyers, family and friends- we see that it takes a team of people fighting for a victim to help make them as whole as possible in the aftermath of a serious accident. To this end, we are offering the John K. Zaid & Associates’, Accident Helper’s Scholarship, 2019 to a student who has a goal of helping people who have been injured in accidents.
