David Bate Personal Injury Law Scholarship
As an experienced personal injury lawyer who has recovered millions in settlement dollars for clients, David Bate understands that the consequences of a single accident on a single individual can be monumental. Our firm is proud to provide legal counsel to individuals and families who have suffered from devastating and life-changing accidents.
We know, however, that immediate counsel cannot always solve every problem that a victim may face in the months following an accident. There are many ways that professionals in other industries may contribute to the long-term support and success of an injured accident victim. Social workers, financial managers, and medical care providers may all play invaluable roles in a victim’s recovery.
We are proud to announce a $500 scholarship for one exemplary student who is pursuing a degree in an industry that may aid injured victims. Our 2017 Personal Injury Law Scholarship will be given to one individual who is pursuing a higher education degree.
