New Mobile App for Exchanging Insurance Info After Traffic Accident


TOPEKA, Kan. — Many Americans don’t know what steps to take or basic information to share — or not share — after an auto accident. They may even put their identities and safety at risk by sharing too much personal information, according to a recent survey by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC).

The new WreckCheck mobile application from the NAIC can help eliminate that risk, according to Sandy Praeger, Kansas Commissioner of Insurance.

The app outlines what to do immediately following an auto accident and takes users through a step-by-step process to create their own accident report.

“It also provides tips for staying calm, safe and smart on the road,” Commissioner Praeger said, “and makes it easy to capture photos and document the necessary information to file an insurance claim.”

Additionally, the app lets users email a completed accident report directly to themselves and their insurance agents. The app is free and available for both iPhone® and Android® smartphone users. It can be downloaded by going to a user’s app store on his/her phone and searching “WreckCheck.”

“Consumers generally only need to share their names and correct vehicle insurance information, which should include the phone numbers of insurance providers,” Commissioner Praeger said.  “Sharing additional personal information, such as driver’s license numbers and home addresses, puts consumers, their property and their safety at risk.”
