No matter how well your client’s late model vehicle was repaired, it has suffered a loss in value and can’t be sold for as much as before the accident. This “Diminished Value” is owed by the insurer and we routinely see them paying from $2,000 to $30,000 above the repair and other claims. We provide everything you need to claim these funds. Laws vary by State, call for a complimentary consultation.
Due to pressure from insurers, auto body shops often hide the true extent and severity of the collision. Ignoring or downplaying needed repairs helps insurers to not only save on repairs but also on personal injury claims. If insurance improperly adjusts a $15,000 repair down to $4,000 then it’s more difficult for you to argue that the accident was significant and win your personal injury claim.
Historically, insurers underpay for total losses. By using captured third party computer-generated comparable appraisals, we’ve determined that a short-paid total loss can reach 30% below true market value.
If your client was not provided with a rental, they are owed the value of a comparable size and quality vehicle for the time they are without their vehicle. The average claimant is owed $2,000 to $4,000 in loss of rental vehicle use.
