Ford Diminished Value Claim in New Haven, Connecticut

Regarding our diminished value appraisal of a 2016 Ford F150 XL AWD Supercrew Pickup with 24,046 miles that was involved in a Front and Rear End Collision that caused $12,297.74 in damage. The truck was not disabled/towed and had no structural damage and no air bag deployment.The claimant made a third-party inherent auto diminished value claim for the vehicle’s loss in value. Once a car is repaired after a collision, it is worth less, often much less depending on the severity of the damage. Regardless of how well the repairer did his job, nobody will pay as much for a previously wrecked car as they would for an identical one that was never in an accident. Presenting a diminished value claim and following it through to a satisfactory conclusion is a daunting task for the average person. Obtaining a comprehensive Diminished Value Report is key.
