Orlando, Fla. – 6/1/2011

AAA’s fourth free mobile app helps drivers through stressful process of gathering information and documenting a traffic collision

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 the parties involved are uninjured. 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 Jeff Green, AAA National Managing Director of Wireless Product Strategy and Programs. “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 by making 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 those 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 available for freefrom the iTunes App Store on iPhone or at www.itunes.com/appstore. Please visit AAA.com/mobile for further details.
