Reason We Created Our Student Scholarship Program
At the personal injury law firm of Isaacs & Isaacs, we understand the challenges of paying for college. The benefits of focused studies can be greatly helped when the financial burden becomes lighter. Attorney Darryl Isaacs, known popularly as “The Hammer” understands the commitments required of students.
With over 25 years serving as one of the nation’s proven truck accident lawyers, The Hammer and his team are proud to help pave the financial path for dedicated students from those states our law offices call home. Our scholarship awards are available to Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio high school seniors with demonstrated plans to attend college, as well as currently enrolled undergraduate college students in those states.

Generation Z continues to prove itself as an extremely tech-savvy part of the US population. New technologies, especially in the realm of transportation, are emerging faster than ever. According to Business Insider, “Tech leaders and financiers alike are confident that self-driving trucks will become the norm as early as the next decade…” Companies like Tesla, Daimler, and Google’s Waymo are forging ahead toward that reality. When a self-driving semi-truck, bus or large commercial vehicle causes a collision with injuries, how should our legal system handle responsibility and blame, and who should be at fault or “liable” for these types of crashes?
