I love to praise people or companies for doing the right thing. Sometimes I like to rant about an issue related to my insurance profession. I always try to see both sides and stay positive. Email or text me a topic you'd like me to cover. I'd love to hear from you.

A car accident inflicts nearly as much trauma as a death, divorce, marriage, or moving. You are often in shock or possibly injured. Even worse, your passengers or those in the other car could also be hurt. Even though you might have prepared for what to do immediately after a crash, the stress might cloud your decision-making process. That’s where I come in.

If you are safely out of danger and are not seriously injured, assess the others involved in the crash to determine the extent of their injuries. If anyone is hurt, call for help. The lives and wellbeing of those involved in the accident are more critical than that hunk of metal and plastic we call our beloved cars. Those can be fixed or replaced. The human body is more important than cars in these moments.

You can then text me at 503-693-2852 anytime, day or night, or call during business hours. I’ll talk you through what to do next.
