Free auto accident application helps injured accident victims
There’s a new app released by a Michigan auto accident attorney to help victims gather evidence at the scene of a car accident called “The Accident App by Cochran, Foley & Associates.”

Attorney Terry Cochran fully appreciates that accident wrongful injury lawsuits often are won or lost at the scene of the accident when victims understandably are least able to take necessary steps that will lead to a successful outcome.

“Human nature makes it very difficult for accident victims to gather vital information and take other important steps at the scene so they can be assured of getting the justice they deserve when they are injured by the negligence of others,” says Cochran, senior partner of Cochran, Foley, & Associates PC of Livonia (www.cochranfoley.com). “This app will help a victim follow a step by step process to preserve the evidence of what is needed at the scene,” adds Cochran.

The free auto accident app takes victims through the information that should be gathered and then seamlessly emails that information to the auto accident attorneys at Cochran, Foley, & Associates. The auto accident app is available for free on both iPhone and on Android platforms.

The Auto Accident App features:

• Camera, video recorder, text notepad and drawing pad that provide all that is needed to record all of the pertinent data about any moving vehicle accident.

• FAQ section containing information about the appropriate procedures to prepare for and handle any moving vehicle accident.

• Time saving forms to clearly collect accident information from the other parties (drivers, witnesses, passengers, etc.)

• Automatic GPS locator which aides in recording critical accident facts like traffic patterns and driving conditions.

• Call emergency number 911 or the means to instantly contact Cochran, Foley or transfer the vital on-the-scene information to them.

With a single click, users can find the ‘Nearest Police Stations,’ ‘Nearest Tow Truck Services,’ ‘Nearest Auto Repair Shops,’ ‘Nearest Taxi Services,’ ‘Nearest Hospitals,’ and more.
The app is compatible with iPhone 3Gs, iPhone 4, iPhone4S, iPod touch (3rd and 4th generations), and iPad.


State kicks off campaign to curb drunken driving through Sept. 3

LANSING (AP) — Michigan is kicking off a campaign aimed at curbing drunken driving.

The Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning says some young men referred to themselves as “professional” drunken drivers during focus groups this year, claiming they were better drivers when drunk. The new campaign aims to dispel those perceptions.

The campaign includes TV ads and billboards. It comes as nearly 160 law enforcement agencies in 26 counties begin stepped-up drunken driving patrols through Sept. 3 during the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” crackdown.
