LIVONIA — There’s a new app released by a Michigan auto accident attorney to help victims gather evidence at the scene of a car accident called “The Accident App by Cochran, Foley & Associates.”

As a personal injury litigator, attorney Terry Cochran says he knows accident wrongful injury lawsuits often are won or lost at the scene of the accident, when victims understandably are least able to take necessary steps that will lead to a successful outcome.

“Human nature makes it very difficult for accident victims to gather vital information and take other important steps at the scene so they can be assured of getting the justice they deserve when they are injured by the negligence of others,” said Terry Cochran, senior partner of Cochran, Foley & Associates P.C. of Livonia. “This app will help a victim follow a step by step process to preserve the evidence of what is needed at the scene.”
