Using Your Cell Phone in an Accident: A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words

We hear so much about accidents occurring due to someone using their cell phone rather than concentrating on driving, but did you ever think of the value of using a phone right after an accident?

Using your cell phone as a means to document the accident will actually give you credibility with your claim and possibly close the case quicker!  You can use your smart phone to take pictures and document important information from the scene of the accident.  Make sure to take pictures of all cars involved, the damage to each vehicle, the accident site, anyone with injuries, and insurance information from each person involved.

Android phones have an app that will help you document necessary information for your insurance company.  For Android users, download the “Help I Crashed My Car” app by visiting

With this app, you can document emergency contact information, personal data, vehicle information, and it will record your location through GPS.  There is also a similar app available for iPhone users called “Car Accident Report” which can be found on the iTunes Store at .

Be safe out there and be smart!  However, when you find yourself in an accident, get out your smart phone and use it to record, take pictures and document valuable information! It will save time, and it will help you store all of the necessary information for your future benefit!
