Car accidents happen all the time in the United States. In fact, on average they happen 27,000 times every day.
If you drive a car, it’s hard to beat those odds. According to ASIRT car crash statistics, the average American driver will get in 3 or 4 accidents in their lifetime.
Whether it is a fender bender or something much more serious, every accident has consequences.
One of those consequences is Diminished Value.
Diminished Value happens when to pretty much every car that’s been in an accident. It will always be worth less than a car that hasn’t been in an accident, even after it has been repaired.
That’s because, when given the choice, consumers don’t want to buy a car that’s been in an accident. So the resale and trade-in value of that vehicle can take a big hit. That’s Diminished Value.
But if you didn’t cause the accident, you are entitled to compensation for Diminished Value. The average Diminished Value claim is worth $3800, and that’s after repairs.
You shouldn’t pay the price for someone else’s mistake. To get the compensation you are owed for Diminished Value, you need to prove to the insurance company how much less your vehicle is worth as the result of the accident.
