Diminished Value

If your vehicle was involved in an accident, it now has an accident history that is likely to show up on a Carfax report. When you sell or trade-in your vehicle in the future, you will probably receive less money for it. This is why your vehicle is worth less money after an accident. Fortunately, Florida law allows a vehicle owner to recover this loss from the party who caused the accident.


We get a percentage of the recovery. If there is no recovery, you do not owe us anything.

Most claims are settled in 2-3 months.

Probably not. The vast majority of claims are settled out of court.

No, your claim is against the at fault party’s insurance company, not yours.

It’s perfectly okay if you already have a lawyer handling your injury claim. Your diminished value claim is separate from your injury claim.

No, there is no requirement that you sell your car in order to make a claim.
