Will my vehicle be worth less since it has been in a wreck?

In some cases, yes. We will review your property damage claim for a possible "Diminished Value" claim. In a Diminished Value claim, you may be entitled to additional compensation if your vehicle will decrease in value beyond the Blue Book value. In order to determine this, the car will need to be repaired and either the insurance company or you will obtain an appraisal after the car is repaired. We submit the claim for payment, but the insurance company may not honor it. If we pursue a Diminished Value claim on your behalf, we will not be able to resolve the Property Damage claim prior to the Diminished Value claim.
