If your vehicle has been in an accident, you’ll want to take care of the repairs immediately to get back on the road. Most drivers just expect that their repairs will be covered by the insurance company, and hope the claims process will be simple. However, many drivers don’t realize they are potentially losing out on much more when they stop at just getting their vehicles repaired. Unfortunately, once a vehicle has been in an accident, its value plummets up to 50%. Known as “diminished value” in Vancouver, WA, your vehicle suffers this loss because the reality is that only 1/3 of American consumers will buy a used car that has a previous accident history. Despite how well your autobody repair shop addressed your vehicle’s repairs, and regardless of its coverage by your insurance company, you’ll still suffer a financial loss. Fortunately, in Vancouver, WA, diminished value is often covered by your insurance company. Unfortunately, many insurance companies don’t provide their clients with this knowledge.
