Rear Ended Over the Holidays? File A Diminished Value Claim
Types of Diminished ValueThe immediate loss of value due to damages after a car accident is the immediate diminished value. This type of diminished value is not generally compensated on its own. The most commonly compensated type of diminished value is inherent diminished value. After repairs have been made you can still have reduced value because of the stigma that is attached to a vehicle that has been wrecked. The last type of diminished value is repair related and is used when repairs cannot be completed perfectly. This includes when after-market parts must be used that reduce the overall quality of the vehicle.
Calculating Diminished ValueThe average insurance policy will not compensate more than 10% of the vehicle’s original value for diminished value claims. The insurance company will then deduct value for things like high mileage and poor condition. Because of these factors, it is not really worth the trouble to file a claim for diminished value unless you own a new luxury vehicle or a well-cared-for, newer luxury vehicle.
