About Accident Plan
You know all about the high risks and potential liabilities that can come with a crash in the commercial driving industry. When reeling from the after-effects of an accident, it can be extremely overwhelming for a driver to complete all the necessary steps in order to avoid unfair penalties.
When an accident occurs, a commercial driver must take specific actions in order for the incident to be treated fairly. The level of detail and accuracy of an accident report can make a huge difference in helping companies avoid unjustified liabilities. Drivers who are untrained in accident scene procedure risk exposure to liability simply by saying the wrong thing, or collecting inaccurate information from the scene.
If you’re still using a paper accident kit–the ones that are expensive to ship and come with a disposable camera–we have a better solution. Accident Plan is a mobile app that guides drivers through the entire process of securing an accident scene with the swipe of a smartphone. It also shows users how to document all necessary components, and culminates in a comprehensive accident report.
As soon as it is deployed, the app also automatically sends text and email notifications with the exact location of the crash, which gives you the opportunity to gather your response team as quickly as possible.
Information is power. With Accident Plan, you can be sure you’re ready for the challenges of the road.
Who Created Accident Plan?
Brendan Dawson, Founder
For over 10 years, Brendan has been solely responsible for the day-to-day trucking operations of a $400 million 38-unit fleet of mobile TV production units. Throughout his professional journey, he has also become advanced in trucking logistics, safety, personnel, procurement, maintenance vehicle design, specification, and more.
Baffled by the outdated zippered pouch and disposable camera approach, he discovered the idea for Accident Plan when he was unable to find a more efficient alternative for his drivers. Over the course of his career his fleet has had very few accidents, but continued to identify problems with the zippered pouch accident kit–they were expensive to ship, cumbersome, and often illegible. “There’s much less room for error with Accident Plan,” he says. “It’s time stamped, original, and you get photos right away.”
Patrick Fay, Vice President of Engineering
Patrick Fay has over 16 years’ experience in the accident reconstruction industry. He leads the In-House Computer Graphics department at Fay Engineering, and has helped explain dozens of trucking accidents for court cases across the USA. Patrick has overseen the development of our product and interactive training module, drawing on his computer science background and his experience in software interface design.
Patrick believes that Accident Plan can level the playing field for truck drivers and trucking companies by helping the driver capture the information he/she knows is important. “Some of the data is gone the moment the accident scene is cleared away,” he says. “Accident Plan gives you the best chance you have to get that data while it’s still there.”
