Because an Accident Shouldn’t Get in the Way of Your Education

Pursuing a college education is a costly endeavor for most students, especially those who are coping with the financial fallout from a serious accident. At Rosen & Ohr, we believe that an accident should never get in the way of one’s education, and because of this, we are continuing the Rosen & Ohr Scholarship Program this year.


Write an essay explaining in detail how a serious accident involving you, a family member, or a close friend has impacted your life. This could have been a car crash, a slip-and-fall accident, a work-related injury, or any other serious accident.

Explain how an injury from the accident has affected you or a loved one by:

  • Limiting or restricting daily activities
  • Affecting feelings and relationships
  • Impacting finances

Your essay should be between 750 and 1,000 words. In your essay, you must include the name of the college you are applying to or are enrolled in and how you plan to finance your education (loans, grants, scholarships, work, etc.)

Rosen & Ohr: Committed to Standing Strong for Accident Victims

With more than 50 years of experience, the dedicated personal injury attorneys at Rosen & Ohr understand how much a debilitating injury can change a person’s life. The effects go beyond financial setbacks and into physical, emotional, and psychological suffering.

Our caring legal team is focused on demanding the compensation needed to get a person’s life back on track after:

The burdens that weigh on a family after a serious accident can last for years to come. If the injured person is a parent who is no longer able to work, the family’s financial stability can suffer. If the victim is a child, general and academic development can suffer. In the worst-case scenarios, where a family loses a loved one in a tragedy that could have been prevented, the suffering is simply immeasurable.

Rosen & Ohr aims to give back to accident victims any way we can. Oftentimes, our service comes in the form of strong advocacy in the courtroom or at the negotiation table. However, we also strive to give back to the community through volunteer work and efforts such as this scholarship program.

At the end of the day, our focus is on helping people.
And we measure our success by the lives we have made better.
