Program provides sketches for auto insurance claims

Posted On Wed, October 28, 2009

When dealing with claims regarding auto insurance, having a sketch of an accident could help policy holders expedite the process.

A recent blog post from notes that new software is available to consumers that can help them sketch out an accident. AccidentSketch can help create a report and provide a user-generated picture of the scene of the accident.

Through a template, users can place cars, trucks and road segments onto a map, which gives people the option of changing the color of things or zooming in and out. Users can also connect the pictures on the map with information, such as plate numbers.

"Once you create a diagram you can also generate a text-based report to fill in details that can't be easily conveyed by the picture," the blog post stated. "When you're done you've got a tidy accident sketch and report to submit to the interested parties."

According to the Insurance Information Institute, people who have been in an accident should contact their auto insurance provider immediately. When they do so, drivers should ask their company what steps need to be taken and what forms will be needed.
