Smartphone apps that can help you after a car accident

Car accidents are traumatizing and harrowing experiences. The immediate aftermath can be challenging to handle. You may know certain procedures you should follow, but with adrenaline and injuries present, it can be difficult to follow all those steps.

Thankfully, technology is here to help you in the event you get into a motor vehicle accident. There are many smartphone apps that can help you with various aspects of a car accident. Here are some top car accident apps to consider downloading.

Capturing key information is key to a car accident claim

In the aftermath of a crash, you want to preserve evidence and make sure you get the other party's information. These details will be especially important if your insurance company resists a claim or if you have to bring a personal injury suit against the other driver.

Downloading one of these smartphone apps today may help you capture and organize information in the unfortunate event of a car accident.

AAA Mobile (Android and iOS)

AAA is a well-known organization that provides motorists with roadside assistance. The official app for AAA features a quick way to request a tow after a car crash. You can also access directions, travel planning tools and rewards.

SOSmart (Android and iOS)

The SOSmart app utilizes the GPS and accelerometer in your phone to determine when an accident happens. Once the app detects a collision, it automatically sends an alert to your designated emergency contacts. It also gives you directions to the nearest hospitals. 

Car Accident Report (iOS)

One of the most important steps to take after a wreck is documenting the incident. This is vital for telling insurance companies later. The CAR (Car Accident Report) app guides you through the process of creating a report. It accesses a voice recorder, camera, drawing pad, notepad and GPS to fill out all the details of the crash.

iWrecked (Android and iOS)

This is a simple app with all the essentials you need. You can fill out all your vehicle details and contacts, create an accident log, take pictures and locate nearby towing companies or taxis.

Assisto (Android and iOS)

Assisto helps you report your collision to your insurance provider. It makes it simple to send data, fill out an accident statement and attach photos with geo-location enabled. 

Stastistically speaking, you will have a crash

On average, the typical person can expect to be involved in an auto accident every 18 years -- four or more collisions in a lifetime. You should consider having one or more of these apps on-hand to make the post-collision process easier to manage.
