Norris Injury Law Scholarship

At  Norris Injury Law, our personal injury attorneys have spent more than two decades fighting for clients who are unable to fight for themselves. Our law firm has successfully represented countless numbers of accident victims in the Athens, Georgia area who suffered serious injuries due to the negligent and reckless acts of others. Our attorneys have obtained personal injury insurance settlements and jury awards for victims of vehicle accidents, premises liability, and nursing home abuse. We also fight for the families of victims who tragically do not survive their injuries, pursuing damages in wrongful death lawsuits.

In keeping with our firm’s dedication to advocating for accident victims and our commitment to the local communities we serve, we are very proud to announce the Norris Injury Law Scholarship.
