Hoggatt Injury Law Scholarship
ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR SPRING 2023
At Hoggatt Injury Law, we are passionate about supporting workers and their families whose lives have been affected by work-related injuries.

We hope to help families address this challenge by offering a scholarship to the child of an employee who has been injured or killed in a work-related accident.
