A car accident of any severity can cause damage to your vehicle. Many people shy away from purchasing a car that was involved in an accident which can mean the value of your car is decreased. Our team at the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can help you recover the diminished value of your vehicle from the at-fault driver or their insurance provider.
Leave the legalities of your case to our Delray Beach diminished value property damage car accident claims lawyer. Our familiarity with Florida law means we know how to build a strong case for financial compensation. It also means we can negotiate effectively with the insurance company and fight hard for the fair and appropriate compensation you are entitled to recover.
Our Law Firm Investigates The Diminished Value Of Your Car After An Accident
When we pursue the at-fault driver in your case, we start by proving their actions caused the accident. The four elements of negligence that constitute a case for legal liability include:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
After proving your right to compensation, our Delray Beach car accident lawyer will request the diminished value of your car. This is the difference in value between what your car would have been worth and the lowered resale value that results from the accident.
Our Investigation Will Prove Your Car’s Diminished Value After An Accident
On your own, it can be difficult to determine the pre- and post-accident value of your car. Our law firm will consult vehicle experts and authoritative vehicle pricing guides to assess your car’s value. Evidence we collect for your case file can include:
- Vehicle repair receipts
- Expert statements
- Photos of your vehicle
Per Insurance Information Institute (III) guidelines, your car’s value is based on its age and condition. Our goal is to determine the difference in value between your car’s resale value before and after the accident. Once determined, we pursue the at-fault driver for this loss in value.
You Must Have Suffered Severe Injuries to Pursue Your Car’s Lost Value
In Florida, you are likely only eligible to pursue this type of loss if you suffered severe injuries in the accident. Our team can answer questions about what constitutes a serious injury and whether you are eligible to collect compensation for your car’s diminished value.
Diminished Value Is Not Your Only Recoverable Damage After A Car Accident
A car accident can leave you with serious injuries. In addition to the diminished value of your car, we also help you recover the costs of your accident-related medical bills. We also request compensation for the following:
- Income lost due to your injuries and the recovery process
- Treatment-related travel expenses and assistive medical devices
- Physical disabilities and lasting disfiguring injuries
- Ongoing physical, mental, and emotional pain and suffering
When we represent you, we carefully assess your recoverable damages and fight to make sure your case is not undervalued or underpaid.
The Role Of Florida’s Statute Of Limitations In Your Property Damage Case
Your car accident case is subjected to the state’s filing deadline, called a statute of limitations. When our diminished value property damage car accident claims lawyer handles your Delray Beach case, we make sure it is filed one time.
In general, Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a) gives you up to four years from the date of the accident to file your personal injury lawsuit. If it is not filed on time, you could be barred from filing at all. At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, we will protect you from the costly consequences of filing your lawsuit too late by tracking and managing these deadlines.
