Diminished Value

The reduced sale value of the vehicle repaired after any kind of road accident is referred to as the Diminished Value.
For instance, the resale value is $45000 before the accident. After the accident when the insurance company gets it repaired for you, the resale value is even though the car is restored in its original condition. When you try to sell it, you may get $30000 just because your vehicle was involved in some serious car accident. Thus, it’s market value immediately falls off.

Do you expect compensation for diminished value?

As you have suffered financial loss after the accident, it is likely to expect the total compensation from the insurance company. The actual repair cost will be bared by the insurance company as per the policy you have chosen. However, if you expect the compensation for diminished value, the jury needs to be persuaded and the fact finders need to be approached to calculate the actual value of a car after the accident despite the fact that the vehicle is fully repaired.

Once the facts are proved, the Court will decide whether the opponent’s insurance company will be liable to pay for the plaintiff’s diminished value of the vehicle.
