Picture this scenario: You were hit by another driver and were fortunate enough to walk away uninjured. Your car, on the other hand, wasn’t so lucky. The good news is, the other driver’s insurance company will cover the cost of the repairs. They’ll even give you a rental car in the interim. In the end, you’ll get your vehicle back, virtually good as new.
There’s just one problem: The market value of your car has diminished in the process. Even though the damage has been fixed, potential buyers can view your auto’s accident history through consumer websites like Carfax, and chances are, they’ll pay much less than they otherwise would have had your vehicle never been in a collision.
What can you do to recoup the value you’ve lost? And how can a Morgan & Morgan attorney help?
