Were You Injured in an Auto Accident?
When you are injured in a motor vehicle accident, you are at the beginning of a journey that can disrupt your life significantly. The initial shock and trauma, and the pain of your injuries is just the beginning. You will need medical evaluation and perhaps ongoing care. You will need to devote time to your health and wellbeing. You will have to deal with insurance companies and property loss. You may experience pain that will make even your most ordinary daily chores difficult or impossible. You may miss work. At the same time, the bills will continue to mount.

Truscello can help to make your experience easier while providing tireless, aggressive advocacy for your case. The confidence in knowing we have your back can provide the peace of mind you need to recover from your injuries.
There are numerous types of motor vehicle accidents. Each has the potential to cause injury or even death. We have the knowledge and insight that are essential to your success. And we have handled a wide variety of motor vehicle accidents, including the following:
Even when you are doing everything right – wearing your seat belt, following the rules of the road, being a driving defensively, and more – you can be the victim of a reckless or careless driver. Car accidents can range from fender-benders to head-on collisions. But even an accident that seems minor can result in painful and sometimes life-altering injuries.
There is nothing like the sense of freedom that comes with motorcycle ride, but there also comes a heightened state of vulnerability in the event of a crash. You are out in the open, and many drivers do not respect your place on the road. If you are struck by another vehicle, the injuries can be horrific or life-ending.
Being struck by a motor vehicle while you are crossing a street or walking beside a road can cause particularly horrific injuries because you have no protection from the impact whatsoever. You will need to be seen immediately by a physician, even if there are no outward signs of injury. Some injuries will not become obvious until later.
With the breadth and weight of a truck the impact of an accident can be especially crushing. Truck drivers often suffer from drowsy driving, and they may have to adhere to tight schedules that results in exceeding the speed limit. These elements can be a formula for disaster.
What to Do After an Accident
In the confusion that surrounds a motor vehicle accident, it can be hard to think clearly. But there are a few tips that can help you after an accident occurs:
