The CTC has launched a free iPhone app that makes it simple to record vital data if you should be involved in an incident while cycling on the road.
Called the CTC Crash Kit, the app will log witness contact details; third party contact and vehicle details; weather conditions; photos of the scene; equipment damage; injury details; and the time, date and location via GPS.
You can then send the report directly to CTC’s solicitors Slater & Gordon Lawyers.
Paul Kitson, claimant personal injury specialist at Slater & Gordon Lawyers, said: “The crash kit is a valuable tool for a cyclist who has been involved in a crash. It captures key information and will minimise the risk of essential evidence getting lost.”
The app has already been reviewed by the New Law Journal which said this type of reporting system will provide solicitors with “fresher and more structured information than may otherwise be the case.”
