Pursuing Damages After a Florida Car Accident
While Florida operates on no-fault car insurance laws, we can pursue compensation for your economic losses and expenses related to your car accident. The law only limits the recovery of non-economic damages to those who meet certain criteria.
Diminished value of property, which includes your car, is an economic loss. If we negotiate a fair insurance settlement or win a verdict in court, you could recover damages that include:
- Medical care costs
- Lost wages and diminished earning capacity
- Property damages and diminished property value
- Out-of-pocket expenses
Calculating the Diminished Value of Your Car After a Florida Accident
Many factors go into how much your car is worth, but the bottom line is that most people do not want to buy a repaired car for the same price as one that has not been in an accident. New or luxury vehicles often take especially big hits in value after an accident, even with top-quality repairs.
We will calculate the fair market value of your vehicle on the day of your accident and subtract the fair market value of your vehicle following the repairs. This will give us the diminished value of your car.

Act Today to Pursue Compensation in a Diminished Value Claim
The statute of limitations on this type of diminished value after a car accident case is four years under Florida law. If we do not reach a settlement or take legal action by the time this date arrives, the court may prevent us from filing a lawsuit in your case. It is vital to act quickly to secure the compensation you deserve.
It takes time to determine the diminished value of your car, and this is only one of the steps we need to take to move forward with this type of case. We also need to collect evidence of other losses, aggressively protect your rights from unscrupulous insurance companies, prove negligence and liability, and put a plan in place to go after the compensation you deserve.
