Diminished Value Attorney

A vehicle is a large investment, but you can naturally expect some form of diminished value when you purchase a new car. In some cases of diminished value, however, you may be entitled to compensation through a claim. Often times, insurance companies won’t want to pay the fair price for car repairs and will send you to a shop that will cause greater diminished value. This is where we come in.

At Galileo Law, we are lead by diminished value attorney Paul Veillon. With years of experience in both personal injury and diminished law, Paul Veillon can help you find the best repair shop for your vehicle to ensure it retains as much value as possible. Before you contact us for a free consultation, let us fill you in on diminished value law and how we can help.

Diminished Value Explained

In short, there are three types of diminished value—immediate, inherent, and repair-related diminished values. When looking for compensation, not all three types of diminished value can be used to get what you deserve. For your benefit and convenience, we have detailed these three types of diminished value below.

  • Immediate: The difference between the resale value of a vehicle before and after an accident is referred to as the immediate diminished value. This is often used as the main measurement of damage when seeing compensation through the court system.
  • Inherent: Inherent diminished value, on the other hand, is the loss of market value of a vehicle as a result of an accident.
  • Repair-Related: As opposed to the other forms of diminished value, repair-related diminished value is a result of improper repairs, often made by an auto shop recommended by the insurance company.
