When you misjudge that turn or a driver coming from your right side runs their red light, everything can change in a moment. When you are involved in a car crash, emotion takes over and it’s hard enough just to get through each minute. That’s why having the right apps on your phone is so important. If you can’t remember the information you need to gather and the evidence you need to collect, let an app guide you through it. It can help you get the right information to your insurance company and pursue a personal injury claim.
Wondering what your next step is after a car crash? The team at Reeves & Mestayer is here to help you. Give us a call at 228-374-5151 to set up a consultation.
While Life360 isn’t known as a driving app, the safe driving features it offers makes it worth a subscription. The crash detection feature notices when you’ve been in a collision and contacts you immediately for further information. If the driver doesn’t respond, the app will notify people listed in your Circle and your emergency contacts. Through the app, you can also request emergency assistance and get help with towing.
Your Insurance Company’s App
If a crash happens, you may not always have access to your paper insurance card. You’ll still need to exchange that information with the other driver, so keeping it handy on your phone is a good idea. You may also be able to use your insurance app to report a crash, take pictures of the crash scene, submit photos of your vehicle’s damage, and add any other relevant information for your insurance agent to review.
When you crash, you can’t always call for help. This is usually fine in busier urban areas, as you can trust that someone will call the police—but what happens if you’re in a more remote area and you don’t expect to be found for several hours? With Openroad, no matter where you crash, you can rest easy knowing that the proper authorities will be notified.
When Openroad detects a collision, it automatically notifies your loved ones, has a trained responder call you, and pinpoints your location for emergency services. The in-app crash guide walks you through what you need to do after a crash and helps you get your vehicle towed to a nearby repair shop.
Triple A members can access a variety of benefits with the Auto Club app. Get access to your free roadside assistance benefits, get information on vehicle rental options, and get back on the road again after a crash. In addition to the services that it offers after a car crash, you can also use it for fuel delivery when you run out of gas, tire repair services, and locksmith assistance.
Available on both Android and Apple devices, WreckCheck streamlines your post-accident tasks to keep you on track.
