Crashing your car is a traumatic experience enough in itself, so it is unfortunate for drivers that dealing with their insurance company after the accident can be a lengthy process that often adds further stress to the situation. Imagine if the whole experience of reporting an accident to an insurance company through to receiving authorization to have the car repaired could be done in a matter of seconds? The technology now exists to do exactly that.
The commonplace experience for most drivers involved in an accident is that after calling family and friends and notifying the police, the next call they are likely to make will be to their insurance carrier. The call center will ask questions such as if there are bodily injuries, if any other vehicles were involved, and if the car is driveable or needs to be towed away. They will then instruct the driver to take the car to the nearest repair garage.
