Learn About A Vehicle’s Diminished Value

What to do if you are in an Auto Accident?

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
  • Value of the vehicle in pre-accident condition
  • Any frame damage
  • Year, Make, and Model
  • Quality of repair

What advice can you give me now that may help my case?

  1.  Take high-quality photographs of the damage to your vehicle. Take pictures that show the entire vehicle in a single frame, and close up pictures that show damage to the frame, body, undercarriage, and interior. Use a good camera with a flash. If you do not have a good camera, call me.
  2. Find your original purchase invoice for the vehicle, and save all receipts for the towing, storage, and repair of your vehicle.
  3. You are entitled to money for a rental car while your car is being repaired.
