Nationwide iPhone App – Be Cautious About Using this Program if You’re in an Auto or Car Accident

Consumers be forewarned – if you are an iPhone user and a Nationwide insurance customer, you be cautious about downloading and using their application on your phone. They are advertising this application on television as a way to immediately file a claim if you’re in an accident, but what they’re not telling you is that they will then have all of your information and could potentially use that evidence/information against you.

If you’re in an accident, you should document the evidence from the accident yourself – including photos, a sketch, and names and contact information of witnesses and the other driver. Additionally, you should maintain possession of your vehicle or have it towed by a third-party company – not your insurance company.  Your next step is then to call an auto accident or personal injury attorney who can advise you on the best way to handle the accident proceedings with your insurance company.
