Diminished Value

Every vehicle loses value after an accident, regardless of how well it was repaired. This loss in value, known as “DV,” is often owed to the car owner by the insurance company covering the claim. We help you recover these funds.


  1. First, contact us. We will quickly assess if your vehicle’s DV value is worth pursuing. Older cars, small repairs, and vehicles with prior accidents may have such a low DV that it is not worth the cost or effort.

  2. Many DV claims can be done over the phone or by e-mail. If your claim requires an inspection, we will set up a time at your convenience. Inspections take about an hour.

  3. After we have all the information, we will issue an appraisal/valuation report. This report will contain the information you need to present to the insurance company along with a checklist and sample letters to use.

  4. If the insurance company attempts to stonewall your claim, we can refer you to attorneys that specialize in Diminished Value cases.
