Mobile Auto Accident App for iPhone and iPad Launched by Edmonton Personal Injury Lawyers

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Sept. 10, 2015) - Personal Injury law office, Cummings Andrews Mackay LLP (CAM LLP), has developed a new auto-accident app to put accident assistance in the palms of Albertans.

A car accident can be a devastating experience often leaving those involved with the inability to think clearly as they become lost in the panic of the moment. Many people are uncertain of what legal information they are to collect or provide to the parties involved, whom to call or where to go for help after an accident occurs.

The Cummings Andrews Mackay team wanted to take the guesswork out of what to do next. With the Auto Accident App, Albertans can feel more confident in an accident situation and get access to the right help in an instant.

The Auto Accident App provides:

  • A to-do list of next steps
  • Information gathering tools to enable the individual to collect evidence
  • A camera video recorder and text notepad fort visual evidence and witness statements
  • An automatic GPS locator to aid in recording accident facts like traffic patterns
  • An emergency service locator to find help nearby
  • FAQ time saving-forms to clearly collect data from the other parties involved.

"Car accidents are some of the most frequent claims we deal with, and in many instances they are the cause of brain injury or other severe injuries," says CAM LLP lawyer, Ron Jewitt. "With minor injuries such as whiplash, some victims do not seek help or compensation from the other party because he or she may be unsure of what legal and or medical steps to take."

"The app takes the guesswork out of what to do next."

The Auto Accident App can be downloaded from:

A 2011 survey performed by Statistics Canada indicates that 74% of Canadians (11.4 million) drive to work. In 2013, Transport Canada's National Collision Database reported over 165 thousand injuries caused by car accidents and 1,923 of those injuries resulted in fatalities.

Although Transport Canada reports a 7.2% serious injury decrease from car collisions in 2013 from 2012, there are still a significant number of car accidents per year in Canada. The combination of Canadians who drive to work and the number of injuries caused by car accidents each year in Canada indicates that, although accidents are decreasing, there are still a significant number of collisions each year.

The Auto Accident App is simple to download, easy to use, and takes the guesswork out of what to do next should a car accident occur.
