Diminished Value

Georgia courts have said that a person's damage is the difference in the value of that property (automobile) before and after the accident. The courts have said that efficient repair of any vehicle damaged in an accident may not have returned that vehicle to its pre-accident condition. This has generated an upsurge in diminution in value losses and claims.

FAQs

I just filed a claim with the other person’s insurance company that hit my car. Don't they owe me diminished value?
In view of our courts' decision, they may owe you diminishment. As a third party claimant, you will have to initiate the filing of such a claim even though the liability carrier has paid you for the repair of the car.

What is the diminution in value claim procedure if I file that claim with my collision carrier?
The determination, per the instruction of our courts, of diminishment must be done by the carrier at the time they estimate cost of repairs of vehicle damage. Such determination could result in evidence of no diminishment.

Car Rental
In third party situations, a claimant may be entitled to car rental from the date of the accident until the car is, with dispatch, repaired. The carrier's rental responsibility in first party claims is based on the policy conditions.

The repair of my car was delayed for three weeks because a part could not be provided by the manufacturer before that time. The insurance Company will not pay car rental during the delay period. Can they legally do this?
Georgia courts have said that carriers are not liable for parts delivery delays.
