(LOS ANGELES, June 8, 2011) –
AAA recently launched the latest addition to its suite of free mobile applications with the release of the AAA Insurance app
for iPhone and iPad. The AAA Insurance app walks drivers through the post-traffic crash process of collecting information, photos and even requesting a tow truck.
“Being involved in a traffic crash can be traumatic, even if all parties involved are not hurt. There are a lot of things to do and information to collect following a collision that can seem overwhelming when combined with the stress of a car crash,” said the Automobile Club of Southern California’s Senior Vice President of Insurance Operations Christopher Baggaley. “The AAA Insurance app provides step-by-step instructions on what information you should gather, including photos, in addition to requesting a tow truck for you.”
The AAA Insurance app
provides AAA’s recommended steps on what to do immediately after a traffic collision and helps you gather important information about the crash needed to submit an insurance claim, such as:
- Taking photos of the crash scene and damage to the vehicles and property
- Documenting vehicle models and people involved in the crash
- Documenting the location of the crash
- Identifying damage to vehicles with a few taps on your phone
- Documenting witnesses and police report details
The AAA Insurance app also provides one-touch access to call police and emergency services, AAA to request a tow and the AAA Insurance claims department, for AAA Insurance policyholders. The app allows users to store their auto insurance company’s contact information, policy number, drivers on the policy and vehicles on the policy, which can be password protected for privacy. Additionally, users can view a summary of the traffic crash details and email a report straight from their iPhone.
The AAA Insurance app is the fourth free iPhone app offered by AAA. The AAA Discounts
app has been downloaded more than 900,000 times, and uses GPS technology to display AAA Show Your Card & Save locations. AAA Roadside
enables AAA members who require roadside assistance to send their location, vehicle description and breakdown details to AAA. AAA TripTik Mobile
is a mobile version of AAA.com’s TripTik Travel Planner. It provides turn-by-turn navigation and locates hotels, restaurants and gas stations and current fuel prices.
