The Jebaily Law Firm has dedicated its efforts to helping injured people in the Pee Dee for Over 50 Years. For those who have been fatally or seriously injured in the workplace, the legal documentation is just the beginning of their journey after an accident. Partnering with Kid’s Chance of South Carolina has allowed the Jebaily Law Firm to provide opportunities for the children of workers that have been fatally or seriously injured in the workplace with scholarships, educational, and vocational trainings.
Thousands of workers are killed in work-related accidents each year. Often, after the paperwork has been finished, life moves on for many. This is not the case for the families that have lost a parent or guardian they are dependent on. With a seriously debilitating injury or death, families are at the mercy of circumstances out of their control and must adjust to a new structure of one parent or one income; these life changes can make it difficult to provide financial opportunities for the children.
Through Kid’s Chance, children under the age of 25 that are heading into post-secondary schooling may be eligible for a scholarship that can be renewed for eight semesters. It is the only non-profit program in South Carolina dedicated to providing assistance to children that have unfortunately dealt with the devastating effects of a work-place injury or death.
