Services - Diminution of Value

This rule of damages provides for the difference between "before" and "after" value of the property, which has been damaged or taken. These types of evaluations are extremely subjective and depend greatly on the recognized expertise of the appraiser.

When at all possible, we physically inspect the vehicle to verify if the vehicle was repaired to industry standards. We audit the original repair estimate and write a repair estimate to correct all repairs not completed to industry standards (which in some states is considered diminution; in these cases, we recommend the vehicle be returned to the body shop to have these repairs corrected).

In addition, we also contact dealers and other experts to obtain opinions of diminished value based on the total cost of repairs, and where applicable, describe the repairs as completed to industry standards.
