A GREAT NEW APP For Your Smartphone

Information can be an incredibly valuable tool. We recently launched a new smartphone app called the VanMeveren Law Group Accident Assist. This app provides several resources and tools at the push of a button. We worked with a company called Accident Assist to tailor the app to our clients and their needs. It’s a resource you can use on the road or at any time. One of the biggest benefits of the app is that it keeps all of your “driver” information in one place by storing a copy of your driver’s license, auto insurance information, auto registration, and any roadside assistance you may have, such as AAA. On top of this, the app has several other resources that can help in the event of a car accident. The “What to do?” tool provides step-by-step guidance for drivers and others following an accident, which can be a confusing time. Having a resource like that can help keep you focused. The app also helps connect you with emergency personnel and your designated emergency contacts. It helps minimize the amount of searching you have to do to find what you need in order to contact the right people. And then, when emergency personnel arrive on the scene, or you arrive at a medical facility, the app has any medical information you may need to share, such as any conditions you may have that can impact the type of care or medication you receive. And another thing — it even stores your health insurance information. While you’re at the scene of the accident, you can use the app to map where and when the accident took place. You can add photos and videos, along with any notes you may have about the accident, the other party, or witnesses. This app isn’t just ideal for motorists. It’s great for everyone, especially if you find yourself on the road at any given time as a passenger, a cyclist, or a pedestrian. And speaking of cyclists, there are many here in Fort Collins who commute to work by bike and enjoy their days off in and around town on their bike. They ride on our roads and trails and in the backcountry, and they almost never have all the above health and insurance information with them. Having all this in one place on our app ensures you never leave home without said information. You never know what might happen and the app keeps you prepared. Following an accident, you can use several tools on the app to help you keep track of different aspects of your care, including managing and scheduling accident-related appointments and treatments and other reminders.

The app can also log and help you track any symptoms you experience as a result of your accident. In pain or don’t feel well? Log it and include details of that instance of pain. These can then be shared with your designated health care provider or attorney if you choose. And speaking of your attorney, the app can put you in direct contact with your attorney. Following an accident — or during the claims process — you may need to be in touch. Now your attorney is just one click away. We can’t say enough about this app. It’s a great tool for our clients and it’s a great tool for us. When you log information in the app, it is shared with us and we can use that information to benefit your case. We invite you to try out the app! You can find more information on our Facebook page (Facebook.com/vanmeverenlawgroup) or you can download the app directly to your phone or tablet at OneLink.to/vanmeveren or by searching “VanMeveren Law Group” in the App Store or Google Play store. If you have any questions about the app, including how to download and set it up on your phone, then just give us a call and we’ll gladly help. We hope you find it helpful!
