What is Diminution?

It means that your car is worth less because it was in an accident. Most cars suffer a 10% to 50% loss in market value even after being repaired. Would you pay top dollar for a car that had been in an accident?

How do I get compensation for diminution in value?

You may be entitled to compensation for diminution in value if:

  • Your accident was caused by someone other than you;
  • That person has insurance; and
  • Your car was properly repaired.

How much is my claim for diminution in value worth?

The value of your claim is based on several factors:

  • Amount of damage compared to the value of the vehicle
