GARDINER — Maine insurance regulators say a new WreckCheck mobile application outlines what to do immediately following an auto accident.
The new app takes users through a step-by-step process to create their own accident report and helps to reduce the risk of identity theft. It provides tips for staying calm and safe on the road.
Maine Insurance Superintendent Eric Cioppa said Tuesday that the WreckCheck mobile application comes from the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. The app lets users email a completed accident report directly to themselves and their insurance agents. The app is free.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says there are more than 5 million wrecks every year, but a July survey shows that many Americans don’t know what steps to take after an accident.
