Diminished Value

Did you know that you may be entitled to thousands of dollars for the loss in value to your vehicle, when the damage was caused by the at fault driver of the vehicle that hit you?

If your car has been damaged in a wreck, this “evidence of repairs” can negatively affect the value of your car should you ever decide to sell or refinance it in the future. This reduction in worth is known as diminished value.

Diminished value is part of the Florida Standard Civil Jury Instructions. Florida law states you may be entitled to the diminished value of your vehicle after an auto accident. The statute of limitation on diminished value claims in Florida is 4 years. 

Even if your car displays no obvious damages it may still experience inherent diminished value since you may have a legal obligation to disclose to any potential purchaser of the vehicle that it has previously been involved in an accident. 

A vehicle that has never been in a crash may be worth $15,000 at resale but thousands less if it has been in an accident and repaired. There’s a way to make up the difference: a diminished value claim.

Diminished value insurance claims allow car owners to recover the difference between a car’s pre-accident value and its value after repairs.
