NAIC Presents the WreckCheck app + $50 Gas Card Giveaway!
Summer is almost over but people are still traveling trying to get in their last minute vacations before Labor Day. We are trying to get in a last minute trip to Cleveland. On this trip we decided to drive instead of fly. Unfortunately, Labor Day is one of the most dangerous holidays for car travel so there is no better time than now to prepare in case of an auto accident.
The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) has a new app that will help you in the event of a car accident. NAIC’s free WreckCheck app is designed to help you calmly walk through the steps to take following an auto accident, and it helps you determine what information and details are important when filing an insurance claim, all from your mobile phone.
The app allows you to collect the necessary information on the spot and immediately email it directly to yourself and your insurance agent. It also makes it easy to capture photos and document the necessary information to file an insurance claim.
Recent research from NAIC suggests that after an auto accident, many Americans do not know the steps to take or information to share with the other driver involved. Oftentimes, drivers over share personal information that could put them and their families at risk, so downloading the WreckCheck app is a good way to ensure your privacy and the safety of your family.
This is such a great app. I have been in car accidents (not my fault!) and I have always hated giving out too much information. When you give out your home address, driver's license number and other information it can be dangerous. The fact that you can have an app that walks you through what you need to do at a time when you are not thinking clearly is wonderful.
Once someone backed into my car and because it was a small fender bender, I did not call the police. I did get information but then she denied hitting my car. My insurance agent said I should have called the police but I had no clue. Luckily, I had a witness and the problem was resolved. But that was a time I could have used the WreckCheck app!
If you would like to download the WreckCheck app, you can find it online at iTunes® and Google Play® or by searching “NAIC” at the iTunes store or Android market.
And thanks to the NAIC I have a $50 gas card to give away to one lucky reader! YAY! This will come in handy for any road trips you might be planning. Just enter on the Rafflecopter widget below!!
