How Smart Phones Can Help With An Auto Accident Case


Auto accidents are all too common, occurring almost 625 times per day in Florida – more than 250,000 accidents in the state each year. While some aren’t that major, others are severe and can cause major injuries, death, and much more. No matter the severity of the accident, it’s a good idea to get the help of a professional automobile/auto/vehicle accident lawyer. A car crash lawyer specializes in providing legal counsel to those who have been involved in an auto crash, and could help get you the financial compensation that you deserve.

One surprising aspect of auto accident cases is the role that smart phones can play in a case. While the increasing number of smart phones being used today has led to an increase in accidents due to distracted driving, using a smart phone in a clever way could lead to better results in seeking compensation.

There are a few different ways you can utilize your smart phone following an accident, and learning more about these options is a good idea that could help you in a big way.

  • The most obvious use for smart phones following an accident is to utilize the camera built into them. By taking photos of the accident scene you can create solid, visible proof about the nature of the accident, who may be at fault in it, and more. These photos can be used by your car crash lawyer as well as the court to make a determination as to fault. Be sure to take multiple photos and to take them from several angles in order to get the best results possible.
  • You may be able to use your smart phone to make audio recordings at the scene of the accident. This can help you take notes to help remember just what is happening, what has happened, and more.
  • Certain apps are also available that can help following an accident. One in particular helps by providing accident report screens, forms, and other information that allows you to keep track of all the necessary details related to an accident. Another stores emergency information, insurance info, and more and keeps things up to date and keeps you informed.
  • Finally, you can often keep all of the information gathered above and easily bundle it into a folder or an email through your phone. This allows you to keep track of everything you need without having to worry about losing an important document, and could be a major help when presenting all of your information to police, insurance agents, and your accident lawyer.

Simply put, a smart phone can be a valuable tool following an accident and one that could help you get the compensation you’re owed. They may get a bad rap – sometimes deservedly so, when you consider the number of accidents caused by distracted drivers – but they have a positive side as well.
