Diminished Value in California
The accident history of a car involved in a collision significantly decreases its value and often presents safety issues.
This decreased value is called “Diminished Value,” and occurs because most people won’t buy a vehicle that has been in an accident without a significant price discount. Diminished Value is the difference between the market value of a car prior to a collision and its reduced value following an accident and subsequent repair.

How is Diminished Value Calculated?
While the ending value of a diminished value claim is based on the negotiations of your diminished value attorney, there are some things that can preemptively help you calculate the money you may be losing. If a vehicle has lost value due to an accident the owner is entitled two things:
- The difference between its value before the accident and its lesser value after repairs.
