$1,000 Distracted Driving Awareness Scholarship

It’s no secret that distracted driving is alarmingly common across the United States, with thousands of people suffering catastrophic injuries or dying in distraction-related accidents. As personal injury attorneys, we have seen firsthand the devastating effects that these collisions can have on victims and their families.

Despite public awareness campaigns that aim to deter the problem, far too many people continue to text, eat, drink, put on makeup, and engage in other distracting behaviors behind the wheel. At Donaldson & Weston, we are committed to doing our part to encourage people to consider how their own choices are putting their lives and the lives of others at risk.
