Diminished Value and Property Damage Claims
Bill Allen | August 20, 2015 | Gainesville Personal Injury Law News
Have you ever had an accident within a year or two after buying the car
of your dreams? If you have, you may have experienced a significant loss
of value, or ‘diminished value’ when trying to later sell
that vehicle that has been damaged in a crash. It can significantly impact
your selling price.
What is diminished value?
When your car is damaged in an accident, its value drops even it get’s
repaired by the most trustworthy professional. When you drive into a dealership
to sell your car, they may immediately reduce their offer by 30% simply
because your car has been damaged in an accident. The offer may even be
more insulting if the car sustained frame damage.
Our firm specializes in making certain you do not experience a Diminished
Value claim when the accident was not your fault. We ensure that a claim
is filed for that specific reason, and that we do it within the time limit
