Florida Auto Diminished Value Lawyer

David Neiser was interviewed for this story on Bankrate.com - How much is that wrecked car worth?

How a diminished value claim works:

If your vehicle has been damaged in a car accident or truck accident, you may be entitled to compensation for the vehicle''s loss in value. This is true, even if the car has already been repaired. The loss in value comes from the fact that your car now carries a history of being damaged in a car accident. It is known as auto diminished value.

Recovery for auto diminished value depends on a number of different factors including fault and extent of damages. Questions that our Florida auto diminished lawyers look at include the following:

1. Did the Florida car accident happen within the last year? Since there are time limitations set by law for filing a claim, we encourage you to talk to our auto diminished value lawyers as soon as possible should you wish to pursue a claim.

2. Was the Florida car accident the other driver's fault? In Florida, the person who caused the accident is responsible (usually through their insurance company) for diminished value damages.

3. Has your vehicle been repaired or is it repairable? A Florida auto diminished value claim is available when the car is repaired or is repairable. It is not available when the car is a total loss.

4. Is the cost to repair greater than $3,000? Generally, the greater cost to repair your vehicle results in a greater diminished value loss, compared to a minor vehicle repair.

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have an auto diminished value claim worth pursuing. Call our Florida auto diminished value lawyers for a free consultation. We may be able to help recover money damages for you.
