PORTLAND, OR (PRWEB) December 14, 2005
A traffic accident, no matter how experienced you are, can leave you rattled. DocuDent has a product to take the guesswork out of getting what is needed to properly record an accident helping drivers collect important data.
Particularly in metropolitan areas, police often cannot be present at the scene of a traffic collision to take a report. It is often up to the parties involved to collect appropriate information and accurately provide it to their insurance carriers and the DMV.
This kit contains bilingual accident forms on which to record a driver’s contact information, license and registration numbers, as well as the year, make and model of the offending vehicle. It also contains a “what to do” reminder sheet and a place to secure insurance and registration cards for handy access.
According to insurance companies, the included refillable camera with flash is the best tool one can have to properly document actual body damage. Additionally, the kit contains an ink pen, a whistle in case safety may be an issue, a tape measure, a flashlight and extra AA battery to assess damage at night. The content of the kit is secured in dedicated pockets and the entire package fits neatly into the glove box.
Unfortunately, some people see accidents as an opportunity to commit insurance fraud. Most people are honest and reasonable when presenting a claim, but the National Insurance Crime Bureau estimates that the intent to defraud is present in at least 10 percent of all reported claims. Insurance officials estimate that dishonest claims account for $321 of each New York driver's insurance fees today representing a 3,500 percent increase from the $9 allotment in 1999. The estimated cost of auto insurance fraud is $6.3 billion per year nationwide. DocuDent helps to get accurate accident information so the driver can get resolution in a timely fashion and to prevent erroneous claims worth thousands and, in extreme cases, even tens of thousands of dollars. This product has been adopted by many insurance companies because it safeguards against fraud.
Consider reviewing all of your insurance policies to make sure you have the insurance coverage that you need and purchase a DocuDent kit so when something does happen, in your frazzled mental state, you’ll know exactly what to do to ensure a quick resolution.
The kit retails for just $14.99 individually although price breaks are available for volume purchases from insurance companies, rental car fleets, or trucking fleets to save hundreds of thousands of dollars in fraudulent activity.
