In the age of identity theft, we are bound to run into conflicting information about what data we should share with providers, government agencies, and especially strangers.
Recently, the National Association of Insurance Commissioners cautioned drivers about providing too much information following an auto accident.
In many cases, the association said, drivers put themselves in jeopardy of being identity theft victims by supplying personal information such as their driver’s license number.
The association has put together a checklist and created a mobile application for iPhones and Androids to help people following an accident. The app is “WreckCheck” and you can get it by going to www.insureuonline.org. If you can’t get the app, you can download a paper version. Neither the app nor the paper checklist spells out state-specific requirements for information sharing.
When an auto accident happens to you, it can be a life-changing event. It is important to seek the representation of a qualified, competent attorney to protect your rights, and help to ensure you get the compensation you deserve. At the Law Office of Kevin Jensen, we will do just that!
