If you ever been in an accident…
Protecting your rights when you are caught in a situation or an incident while driving can be crucial to ensure you are not dealt an unfair hand. Oftentimes, many people don’t know their rights and assume that the police will make the right decisions. If you have ever been in an accident or were stopped by a police officer for a DUI, supposed traffic violation or any other reason, there is any easy way to take the protection and knowledge you need with you, to make sure you record the incident to best meet your needs, help you ask the right questions and make the right decisions.
Auto Law Pro is an app for iOS devices that allows you to take down essential pieces of information if you have been in an accident, are caught up in an emergency situation, or have been stopped by the police and are being written up a ticket. How does Auto Law Pro help? It’s an app that fits on your phone, iPad or iPod Touch that allows you to capture video, take pictures, and enter data about any auto-related incident. It offers support for the following incident types:
- I got a ticket
- I had an accident
Each area allows you to tap into the contacts list on your device or from a list saved in the app itself that you can manually enter. These contacts are people you want to notify.
The Emergency area of the app allows you to automatically send notifications to your contacts with the touch of a button. The only thing required here is that the contact is configured to be alerted for “emergencies,” which is an option you set when you enter your contacts. You can send out a notification that you are in a dangerous situation, that you have just been stopped by the police for a DUI or maybe for a speeding ticket. This app is especially useful if you are doubtful about why you have been stopped, and allows you to contact people so they know you may be in a precarious situation.
The “I had an accident” area is extremely useful in that it allows you to easily enter data about what just happened. You can take snapshots of your car, of the other car or cars, and enter information about insurance, location and time of day. The value of this app is immeasurable, especially when you think about how hard it is to recall such details days after the incident has occurred. Now, you can just pull them up in the app!
The “I got a ticket” area lets you take a photo, choose a ticket type and type in notes about what happened. When you select the “Next” button from this page, you are taken to the search page that will locate lawyers nearby, based on your location or a zip you enter. These lawyers can help you ask the right questions, say the right things and prevent yourself from any further incrimination. The value of this app is immense and can only be improved by possibly adding built in functions to directly print from it, so you can hand your insurance agent a sheet of paper with all the crucial details to help your case.
