Car accidents can be pretty traumatic, even if you have not been injured in the process. They can become especially bothersome if you’re being sued for the incident. Car accidents are tricky, given the huge variety of conditions that can determine who is at fault. This time, it seems you’ve been called the bad guy. This is always a pain, mostly because causing an accident is never a good feeling. But there is a good side to all this: the person with whom you collided has decided to file a claim against you by using Zeyo.


Zeyo is a private online court that provides a fast, fair, and easy way to resolve disputes online. Our process is neutral, confidential, much quicker than going to court and provides a legally binding, court enforceable judgment. As a private court, we are neutral and provide the same resources to you as we do to your opponent.


Though nothing can make the accident you were in pleasant, we can try to make it less frustrating. Whether the accident totalled both cars, or only caused them minor damages, our intuitive platform can get you through it all in a few steps. No matter how frustrating having a claim filed against you is, engaging in the process will be much more rewarding than having to go to small claims court.


Here are a few reasons why it’s in your interest to respond to the claim filed against you through Zeyo.


  • Evidence

The first rule after getting in an accident is to stay calm. Easily said, right? Well, the truth is that there are many things that can cause a car accident. You’re not automatically to blame, just because the person you collided with filed a claim first. Based on the weather, how fast the cars were moving, where they were located (on a road or at an intersection), all bets are off until an experienced professional reviews the case. So take as many photos and gather as much evidence as possible right after the accident. Zeyo is flexible with the evidence it accepts, so anything you have can be used to your advantage.


  • Insurance

If you are responsible for the accident, but have good car insurance, you shouldn’t have to worry about footing the bill. However, you may have a high deductible (an amount of money you have to pay before your insurance company starts paying) or not have insurance at all. Zeyo has you covered, in these cases. If you decide to settle the case without a trial (a frequent choice with auto accidents), we offer a 15% discount off the amount to be paid.

  • Convenient

Entirely online and accommodating, we want to make sure the procedure goes as smoothly and as agreeably as possible. Being able to use your computer for the entire process means you don’t have to waste time going to a courthouse, and our system lets you schedule a hearing at a time that is most convenient to you. You don’t have to wait several months for a hearing assigned by a civil court.

 

  • Neutral

While an auto accident dispute can go any way in a courthouse, the arbitrator who judges your cases at Zeyo makes a decision based entirely on the case’s merits. Our only wish is for you, the respondent, to get through this dispute as quickly as possible. Because Zeyo is a private court, this also means the case will not go on the public record, keeping your confidentiality intact.


Though experiencing a car crash is bad enough, being brought to court for the crash only adds insult to injury. Fortunately, Zeyo walks you through the process, simply, neutrally, and as civilly as possibly. Though responding to an auto accident claim is probably the last thing you want to be doing right now, our Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) platform can make it go smoothly, so that you can get on with your day. We hope that the points listed above are enough to motivate you to engage with our process. If you have any questions, please send us a note at support@zeyo.co.
