You just got into a car wreck? There's an app for that!
You're breathing fast... Your heart is beating hard...
-- and you're still in disbelief that you've just got into a car wreck. So what do you do?
Over the past 15 years people come to my office and they were confused at the time of the accident. They were in shock; they didn't know what to do. That’s why we created this app. It is to help people.
CHECK LISTS: There is a step-by-step guide with checklists of what to do, and what not to do to help you preserve evidence so that when it's time for you to be justly compensated, the insurance companies don't have the ability to start throwing up defenses and saying you can't prove this and you can't prove that.
YOUR MEDICAL INFORMATION AND EMERGENCY CONTACTS: The first thing I want you to do with this app is go to the medical information tab and put in any allergies, if you're allergic to penicillin or if you've got a pacemaker, or if you've got steel rods in your back, anything that can help them so that they don't do anything to hurt you worse. You want to put in your contact information in case you're incapacitated you can give this to the medical people at the scene because you know when you get in an accident you want somebody to contact your loved ones and let them know where you're at. That should be one of the most important things you do with this app that can save a lot of headaches and heartache down the road.
AUTOMATICALLY NOTIFIES YOUR FAMILY OF YOUR LOCATION:
The app will also find your location on Google maps and email your spouse, parents or loved ones.
GATHER EVIDENCE BEFORE IT DISAPPEARS: Two big things on this app are the Law Cam and the voice recorder for Witness Statements.I can't tell you how important it is for you to gather evidence at the scene. I've tried cases where police didn't take pictures of the accident scene and there were skid marks and somebody was saying they weren't going over the speed limit. But of course if we had pictures of the skid marks we could have shown that he definitely was speeding.And then what happens is by the time the client hires our office it has rained and you go out there and the skid marks have been washed away.
WITNESS STATEMENTS: It is also very important to obtain eye witness statements at the accident scene, because once you get it recorded it will be harder for people to go back on what they've said. You're going to get the honest truth about what happened which is very, very important. Because memories fade... and I can't stress that enough because I've seen cases where people that were entitled to serious money for serious injuries were not compensated because witnesses disappeared, the evidence had been tampered with or evaporated, and this app can help you avoid many of those same issues that have had a negative impact on my clients over the past 15 years.
PROVES YOU ARE NOT AT FAULT: What this app does, in a nutshell, is prove you were not at fault and give us critical evidence that is necessary to help us prosecute your case!
FOR ANY AND ALL INJURIES: The Accident Safety app is not just for auto wrecks. It's also for work injuries, slip and falls, dog bites, defective products -- and any type of injury you might get.
PROTECT YOUR TEENS: We want to make sure your teens have this app on their phones because what we've seen over the past is that young drivers can sometimes be intimidated by adults who are aggressive. There are people who will try to take advantage of the situation... and by having this app, it can prove that your son or daughter was in the right and it's the other party's fault. This is a great thing for your teens to have ...not only for them, but also for their parents in the long run when it comes to insurance rates.
SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS: If you like our app, I want to encourage you to share this with all your family members, friends, and people at work, put it on your Face book page, text it to your friends, email it, Tweet it, share it with everybody you know.
HELP US IMPROVE: If you think we can make this app better I want you to let us know that because our commitment is to make this the best app in
I appreciate you taking time to read this blog and I want you to know that if there is anything we can ever do to help you, whether you hire us or not, we'll always be here for you.
