Have you ever heard the phrase “There’s an App for that!”? Well, no matter what the situation, there tends to be an app for your smart phone device that will ease the situation. A car accident is no different. Here are a few apps and other useful technology that can assist you in an auto accident:
George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers Personal Injury Kit Mobile App
George Sink has an app! With this app for iPhone and Android, we provide a lot of useful information about car accidents, driving laws, social security disability, and more. Our “Accident Guide” can help walk you through the steps to a successful post-accident plan, including collecting information and documenting the scene. You can also enter your health information so that emergency services know vital facts about your medical conditions and injuries. You can also program emergency contacts into the app, so that the emergency services can call your loved ones and let them know which hospital you are being taken to.
This app is very useful for protecting your rights and assisting you in the legal process. Download the SinkLaw app here .
iCar Black Box
If you are looking for something a little more intense, the iCar Black Box turns your iPhone into a black box – recording vital information about the accident without your attention. Using its GPS, it tracks your speed and records it. It videotapes the surroundings, but only saves the video if you press the Emergency Record button. Many of these are also vocal prompts, allowing you to respond with your voice if you are otherwise unable to touch your phone. The app, tracking your speed and acceleration, will try to see if you are in an accident and ask you if you’d like to call 911. This might be an easy task, but if you are unable to use your hands, this could prove invaluable.
AAA Roadside Assistance App
If you have AAA, you can understand how helpful their services can be. Their app makes getting those services a little easier, especially if you have bad cell phone reception. Along with being able to help you when your car breaks down or is in an accident, the app can give you information about pricing and the services you can look for in the area of the accident. Since accidents often happen in unfamiliar places, it is great to have this information on-hand, especially after you’ve shared insurance information, taken photos, and are still anxious over your accident.
These are only a few apps that are out there that could be helpful in an auto accident. Remember, these apps, and all others, should only be used when you are not driving. Texting or playing games while driving greatly increases the odds of being in a car accident. Please, be considerate of other drivers and put down your phone while you are driving.
