The — Avrek Law Firm, one of California's leading personal injury law firms, announced that the deadline for entries to the firm's DriveSafe Scholarship Contest will be on December 31st, 2014. A product of the firm's commitment to spreading awareness about the dangers of distracted driving, the Avrek DriveSafe Scholarship Contest will award scholarships of up to $5,000 to students whose videos on the subject receive the most views on video-sharing site YouTube. Full details and the contest's terms and conditions can be found at the the Avrek Law Firm website.
"With many great entries already, the deadline for submissions to our DriveSafe Scholarship Contest is coming up quickly," Avrek Law Firm representative Alexander Sanchez said, "We know that there are plenty more entries on the way and look forward to seeing what upcoming entrants dream up." Authorities including the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are virtually unanimous in pointing out driver distraction as the single most common cause of vehicular accidents nationwide. Although texting or using a handheld mobile device while driving is illegal in California, a shocking proportion of the approximately 2,700 deaths and 230,000 injuries suffered in vehicular accidents annually can be traced back to such behaviors.
As one of the state's leading personal injury law firms, the Avrek Law Firm has developed an especially pointed institutional understanding of the seriousness of the issue. Avrek Law Irvine Car Accident Lawyers regularly offer help and much needed legal representation to people who were injured in car accidents because of the distracted driving of others, having secured a number of multi-million-dollar settlements for such clients. Avrek Law Personal Injury Attorneys have also obtained much-needed settlements and judgments for an unfortunate number of families who suffered the loss of loved ones in fatal accidents that were similarly the fault of distracted drivers.
The Avrek DriveSafe Scholarship Contest was designed to help spread awareness of this problem, both by helping young people become better educated themselves as they research their video entries and by encouraging the creation of videos that will inform and enlighten viewers. The contest has already produced a number of creative entries, and Avrek Law Firm representatives expect the field to become even more impressive as the deadline for submissions approaches.
The Avrek DriveSafe Scholarship Contest is only one of a number of the firm's many community-oriented commitments. The Avrek Law Firm is also a sponsor of the Special Olympics, the Huntington Beach Walk Like MADD event, and the Someone Cares Soup Kitchen in Costa Mesa. In addition to being one of Southern California's most successful and highly regarded personal injury law firms, then, the Avrek Law Firm is therefore also one of those most involved in positive ways outside of the firm's core mission of providing the best legal representation available.
Avrek Law Firm representatives remind students that, though the deadline of December 31st is coming up soon, there is still plenty of time to enter the Avrek DriveSafe Scholarship Contest and potentially win a scholarship as large as $5,000. The 10 finalists in the contest will be announced on February 28 of next year, with the winners being announced on March 20. More information about the contest is available on the Avrek Law Firm website, where details about the firm's legal services can also be found, and visitors can sign up for free consultations regarding their own cases.
