You can download apps that can assist you if you’re in a car accident.
Accident Report is an app that no one wants to use, but if you’re in an accident, it’s invaluable. The app is designed to make accident reporting as easy as possible. And the app delivers on this promise.
Everything you add is placed into a PDF file that you can send to your insurance company.
The app allows you to gather vital information following an accident, including:
- Witness testimony
You can also use your phone’s location to find exactly where the accident occurred. All of the information that you enter and the app gathers will then be placed into a single PDF file. The app makes it easy to compile the data needed after a crash to send to your insurance company or attorney.
The only problem is that this is an app that you want to download before you’re actually in an accident.
Again, this is an app that no one wants to use, but when an accident does occur, it becomes an invaluable tool to have on your side.
Zendrive and Life360, an analytic company and a social network for family members, have joined forces to offer a new app called Driver Protect. The app’s goal is to notify your family members when you’ve been in a car accident.
The app will also notify authorities for a rapid response time.
The app utilizes your smartphone’s accelerometer and gyroscope to detect when an accident occurs.
When the app detects what it believes is an accident, it will have a rapid response team call the driver to see if they’re safe. The app, which comes with a $7.99 monthly fee, also provides parents with weekly driving reports and driving history.
Data collected from the app will also be used to help determine how safe a driver is on the road.
