I also found some interesting stuff on diminished value which I didnt know about. I am alway one to stick it to the man to an extent.
Guys, you seem to be missing the point about diminished value. State law usually deal with whether or not an INSURANCE COMPANY has to compensate a person for the diminished value of a vehicle that was involved in an accident with their insured. Some states do allow recovery from the INSURANCE COMPANY while others do not. If you are upset about the accident, you should have the option of pursuing a claim against the DRIVER PERSONALLY. Proving diminished value can be tough. The way to prove diminished value is to get the difference in what you would get for a trade for your vehicle if it hadn't been in an accident versus having been in an accident. For OLDER VEHICLES with higer mileage, you probably have to use one of the services mentioned in previous posts.For relatively NEW VEHICLES, take your car is to go to a dealer who sells your make and model and ask them what you vehicle is worth having been in an accident and what is would have been worth had it not been in the accident. Most newer cars that are traded to a dealer can be CERTIFIED. However, most new cars that have been in accidents with a significant amount of damage (think a couple thousand) cannot be certified. If your vehicle falls into this case, you can save the money you would spend going with one of those companies by simply going to the dealer and having him tell you the difference between a vehicle being traded in that can be certified and one that cannot be certified. Don't forget to get a name and business card so that the insurance company can follow up and verify with the dealer.
I have had some experiences with this stuff and I know it sucks, especially when its a car that means something to you. Any plans of putting 2 12s in the back so mofos can hear/see you.
