How can I get the diminished value of my car?
Question Details: My vehicle met with an accident on due to the negligence driving of defendant. Although my car has been repaired by insurance company, it has sustained a post-repair residual reduction in resale value diminished value as direct result of the damage sustained by my vehicle. I communicated to the defendant's insurance company attempting to recover what he owes for this diminished value. The insurance company has refused to pay saying the car has been repaired fully and hasn't lost any value. If lost value then asking for the proof of pre-accident appraisal report of the car, which I don't have and not possible to get. However, I have submitted the post accident appraisal report, NADA report, and diminshed value report stating loss of value but still insurance company denied and asked to prove by showing care value pre-accident appraisal report along with post accident appraisal report. Hence I am looking to file small claims in the court. Do I have the right to recover the money for the diminished carvalue from accident? What are the chance of getting on my favor?
