$25,000 in Scholarships for Viral Videos: BISNAR CHASE and American Lawyer Academy Promote Safe Driving

BISNAR CHASE (BestAttorney.com), a Newport Beach personal injury law firm, is pleased to announce that it is the western regional sponsor of the 2010-11 American Lawyer Academy (ALA) Viral Video Scholarship Contest. The scholarship program is dedicated to the thousands of accident victims who are injured or killed in motor vehicle collisions each year in the United States and hopes to save lives with a positive viral message. High school and college students nationwide are encouraged to submit their videos promoting safe driving.

According to California Highway Patrol's Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS), 241,873 people were injured and 3,401 people were killed in car accidents in 2008, the last year reported. Young people aged 15-24 suffered 801 car accident deaths, the most of any age group.

"Who would be better than young people to use the latest video and Internet technology to create and spread car safety messages?" exclaimed Bisnar, the founder of BISNAR CHASE and originator of the viral video scholarship idea. "Young people invented the term 'viral video' over the past decade. They know how to use it. Their imagination and technical abilities will create videos that will help lower the number and severity of traffic collisions, which is our goal."

The American Lawyer Academy Viral Video Scholarship Contest offers $25,000 in scholarships toward college tuition at recognized academic institutions. Students who want to use their talent and creativity to help spread a positive message that captures the imagination of the YouTube generation can visit http://www.bestattorney.com/ for video submission details and contest rules.

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“Were very helpful, even if you don't hire them. Sent them some questions by email of my case and were very fast on getting back to me with sound advice. Didn't end up needing to get a lawyer, and it was very comendable on their part to be honest with their advice.”

“I could not recommend Bisnar & Chase highly enough! Now, I must be forthcoming and tell you that I am writing this review on behalf of my wonderful mother. You see, she's a mom, and therefor [sic] by nature is completely unable to do even the most simple of tasks on the internet. Like writing a a Yelp review. But we all love our moms don't we? Yes. We all love our moms (except Charles Manson), and would do anything to make sure they are protected and well taken care of. Upon referral from my mother's coworker, we contacted Bisnar & Chase. They had done a great job in this previous case and were located extremely close to both UCI and home, which made stopping by their office very convenient for my Mom. My Mom had been in an auto accident, nothing crazy but not a mere fender bender, and suffered what we thought to be some minor whiplash. Months later this was definitely not the case. Her client experience with the associates at Bisnar & Chase was so impressive that she raved to me about every time she heard anything from them. How thorough they were. How they listened better than I did (or something to that effect). How she liked Shannon and Mr. Bisnar and felt that they really had her best interests at heart. I honestly couldn't get her to shut up about them. But as a daughter that last part was all that I needed to hear to know that I we had found the right people and I could sleep easy at night knowing my Mom was in good hands. The Bisnar & Chase team really went above and beyond my family's expectations. And for that I am extremely grateful. If you live in the Newport Beach/Irvine/Costa Mesa/General Orange County area I would highly recommend Bisnar & Chase to both friends, and family.”

“My car accident happened in April. I called Bisnar Chase, and was able to get information that helped me deal with the insurance on my own. They didn't take my case, but Mary took my call both times I called; she was so very helpful!! I hope I don't need them again, but if I do, I know they'll help me. FIVE STARS!!”
