PORT ORANGE – You’ve just been involved in an auto accident?  There’s an app for that.

The Port Orange-based law firm of Rue & Ziffra has launched a free mobile phone application that provides users with step-by-step assistance in the event they’re involved in an accident.

The application – which can be scanned to an iPhone or Android or downloaded at http://phoenix-media-solutions.com/RueZiffra2/First.html – is useful for everyone, according to Jessica Eckelbarger, marketing manager for the personal-injury firm.

“It’s great to have this readily available on your phone because there are so many things that are important to know before, during and after an accident,” she said.

The mobile accident app – which even tells you what to do to prepare yourself for an accident – guides the user through the entire process with links to emergency services departments like police, fire and hospitals, as well as tow-trucks, taxis and auto repair shops.

Eckelbarger said the free application is invaluable as it directs the user in what kinds of photos and videos to take, filling out an accident report, and getting information like car make and tag numbers, insurance and driver’s license numbers, as well as statements from witnesses.

“It’s very user-friendly, and if the person wants to, they can email the report directly to our office for one of our attorneys to review for free,” she said.
