DLH launches smartphone app

An internet-based legal and insurance advice company, Drivers Legal Helpline (DLH), has launched a free smartphone application, which collects evidence, offers guidance and provides support for UK drivers involved in traffic accidents. Available for Android and Apple devices, the Crash Mate app records crash data, such as: the driver’s exact location, with overlays on a Google map; the other driver’s registration number; and other important information. There is also a voice and video recording facility for recording vehicle damage and admissions of liability. The app can also locate and call the nearest emergency services; police, ambulance or fire department. It provides step by step guidance on what to do after an incident. If the user chooses to do so, the app will send all information to Drivers Legal Helpline for immediate assessment by a qualified road traffic solicitor, who will give a response within one hour. However, the app can also be used for storing information without giving DLH instructions to act.

“Crash Mate is one of those phone apps you hope you never need,” said Colin Mahoney, creator of DLH. “But you’ll be awfully glad you have it, if you ever get caught in an accident. This free app is the best witness any driver could ever have after an accident. By providing an extra layer of protection for UK motorists, and hard proof and evidence for insurers, we make an already stressful situation a little bit easier for all involved.” Mahoney predicts Crash Mate will be invaluable to more than just regular vehicle drivers and their insurers; it will also be welcomed by lawyers, insurance companies and fleet managers. He explained, “There is no question that the mobile device is the fastest growing online search tool today. It is for this reason that we have made our innovative and informative app available free to every UK motorist. This is a UK first for sure, and possibly a worldwide first for all drivers of motor vehicles. Crash Mate is constantly being improved upon and updates and new versions will remain totally free. We will never charge a single penny for this app; ever.”
