With daily use of a motor vehicle, the chances of being involved in an auto accident increase with each outing. Car accidents happen every minute of the day across the United States. When a vehicle is damaged during an auto accident, the car’s value may decrease, even if the necessary repair work took place.

Some insurance policies are now required to include this loss of value in your accident claim, otherwise known as diminished value. This will show the difference between what your vehicle was worth before and after your accident.

How do Diminished Value Accident Claims Work?

Once your car has been involved in an accident, it loses financial value. Websites like Carfax, Edmonds, and AutoCheck allow used car buyers to discover the accident and repair history for any particular vehicle simply by purchasing a report. Even if your vehicle has been completely repaired to new condition, it can become less desirable, resulting in a lower selling price.
