Do you know what to do if you’re involved in a car accident? The first few minutes after an accident are the most important. You must take certain steps to collect insurance and witness information, and you must secure evidence before it’s disturbed. You’ll most likely be a little shaken up after an accident, and you may forget to take down important details that can help protect your rights. Bachus & Schanker has long been concerned that members of our community could be negatively affected by such situations. That’s why we’re proud to announce our My Lawyer™ for Android application, which was created with you in mind.
Smartphones are fast becoming the cell phones of choice for many people. Smartphones offer numerous features including cameras, and the ability to run all kinds of applications, from games to e-mail to apps like My Lawyer™ that help people perform specific functions.
We hope you’re never involved in a car accident. It’s a harrowing experience that we don’t want anyone to go through. But if it ever does happen, we want you to be prepared. The My Lawyer™ app will guide you through the steps you need to follow to protect yourself.
The app helps you document who is at fault in an accident by storing photos you take with your phone’s camera. It also helps you catalog property damage, and any injuries that may occur. In addition, the app will tell you who is responsible for any medical expenses, and how to go about handling them. To help ensure you collect all the information you need, there’s an accident checklist to follow.
A few additional features offered by the app include a free phone consultation, a free initial case inquiry submission, and a fun quiz to test your legal knowledge.
Possibly the best thing about the app is that it’s available to, and will work for anyone, regardless of location. If you’re involved in a car accident outside of Colorado, My Lawyer™ will help you find an attorney to assist you.
The My Lawyer app is not yet available for the iPhone or Blackberry, but will work on any smartphone running on the Android operating system. My Lawyer™ is free, and can be downloaded here, or on our mobile site.
