The Importance of Diminished Vehicle Value for Your Case

Insurance companies have tried to deny that diminished value is recoverable in the state of California. Insurers would then skirt the law and try to make accident victims believe that only their vehicle’s cost of repair was recoverable.

However, in 2015, the personal injury attorneys at Kerr & Sheldon assisted consumer attorney Montie Day, Esp. in petitioning the California Supreme Court Judicial Counsel to remove the confusion regarding recovering diminished value.
