Vehicle Property Damage Firm in Florida

Car Accidents are unpredictable and costly, especially when it is not your fault. When you are in a car accident and it’s not your fault, the at-fault driver’s insurance may pay the cost of repairing your car. The car may look and run great, even following a serious accident. Regardless, now your car is worthless. Once a car is in an accident, its perceived value decreases. This loss is called “diminished value.”

Hear What Our Clients Are Saying About Working With Our Team.

I purchased a brand new 2021 ram 1500 in April of 2021. A month or so later I was rear ended at a red light by a distracted driver. I contacted James to Pursue a diminished value claim for me. The process couldn’t have been easier. It required zero money up front/out of pocket and James did all the work. After negotiating with the insurance company on my behalf, James was able to get back a fair amount of $$$ for me to make up for the lost value in my brand new Truck. James was always very polite and respectful and was responsive within a day to any emails I sent him. 10 out of 10 would recommend to family and friends. I will certainly use Lost Value Law again in the future should I suffer the same misfortune with my next vehicle. Thanks James!!

 Why should I worry about diminished value if my car has been properly repaired?

Regardless of any moral issues regarding nondisclosure, current technologies really make it easy for a car dealership and other consumers to discovering accidents and repairs.  A potential buyer can simply run a CarFax search of the car’s VIN number to make such a discovery.  In fact, most dealership present potential buyers with such a report.  As a result, you very likely will receive less for the vehicle.

Can I recover for diminished value if I was the at-fault party in the accident?

No, Florida law only allows for recovery of diminished value if you are not at fault.

Do I really need a lawyer to collect for diminished value?

Can you collect for diminished value without retaining an attorney? Yes.  If you try to do it yourself, however, you spend a lot of time, much of it in frustration, and will very likely settle for less than you would have recovered if you had hired an experienced attorney.

There are online appraisal companies that claim to handle diminished value claims. Why not just use one of those?

Because appraisers are not licensed to practice law, they cannot represent you in court. Insurance companies know this.  When you are represented by an attorney, there is always the threat of ending up in court. This is a great incentive to fairly settle.

How is the amount of diminished value determined?

The amount of diminished value depends on the pre-accident value of your vehicle, based on the year, make, model and mileage of the car, amount of damage incurred, for example, whether there was frame damage, and how well the car could be repaired. Of course, if the insurance company is doing the valuation, the valuation will likely vary greatly from that of an independent appraiser.
