What is Diminished Value?

If you've been involved in an auto accident it is very important to know your vehicles true value. You may be entitled to compensation from the at-fault party's insurance company.

Diminished value is the inherent loss of value resulting from a collision.  Even though your vehicle is fixed and may appear 100%, it now has the collision and repair on its vehicle history. This can negatively

impact resale value. Estimates reflect that over half of consumers would not purchase a vehicle that had been in an auto accident. Over 3/4th of consumers would not be willing to invest in a previously

wrecked vehicle unless given a substantial discount.


Insurance companies usually will not inform you of your right to an independent appraisal 

In a majority of cases, claimants are not made aware of compensation for diminished value. Insurance companies may say they are "on your side" and that they are advocating for your benefit when in reality

they are saving costs on their end. 

It's very important that you have the necessary information and it is presented appropriately for your claim to be considered. That is where DVAC can help you recover what is rightfully yours.
