After a car accident, you expect the other driver’s insurance company to pay to repair your vehicle, as you have the right to seek compensation for it its diminished value. As such, if your car needs significant repairs, potential buyers would see this information in your vehicle’s history report, and they almost certainly will offer you less money than if the car had no accidents in its past.
Recovering the payment you deserve can be a challenge, which is why Ged Lawyers’ Massachusetts diminished value claim lawyer can fight hard to protect your rights.
Our Attorney Protects Your Right to Seek an Award for Your Car’s Diminished Value
Insurance companies are for-profit enterprises that profit more when they give victims a lower settlement amount.
Even though the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court determined in the 2021 case of McGilloway v. Safety Insurance Company that victims can seek reduced value, or what Massachusetts calls Inherent Diminished Value IDV, insurance companies still try to avoid making these payments.
Ged Lawyers Will Help You Navigate This Often Complex Process
The auto accident lawyers at Ged Lawyers know that insurance companies often offer you a significantly lower amount in IDV than you deserve, hoping you’ll take it to receive a check faster. Our law firm strives to make sure you receive the amount you deserve. Depending on the type of car you have, the IDV could be a significant amount.
Still, some insurance companies may look for a loophole in the policy and refuse to pay your reduced value claim. Our team can gather evidence to prove them wrong and negotiate the amount that you deserve.
We Must Prove That Your Car’s Value Is Reduced
According to the Common Wealth of Massachusetts, the burden of proof for receiving a payment related to IDV rests with you as the victim. Ged Lawyers knows how to work through the process of providing proof to the insurance company, including:
- Showing documentation that your vehicle’s value is lower after the crash and repairs than it was before the accident
- Showing the precise amount of reduced value that your vehicle now has
Our team of Massachusetts IDV claim lawyers has several decades of collective experience working with victims in cases like yours. We can use this experience to build a strong case and help you win the settlement you deserve.
Our Diminished Value Claim Lawyers Can Help Seek Damages for Your Luxury Car
When you are driving a luxury car and get hit in an accident, the amount of money involved in a settlement related to IDV may be significant. Even though fighting against an insurance company to seek damages for the now reduced value of your repaired luxury car can be stressful, most people do not want to leave this amount of money on the table.
Once you hire us, Ged Lawyers will handle all negotiations and correspondence with the insurer. Should one of the insurance adjusters reach out to you, direct them to your attorney right away, and they can take all communication from there.
You Should Not Suffer Financially After a Crash That Was Not Your Fault
When another driver behaves in a negligent manner behind the wheel and hits your luxury car, you deserve to be made whole financially. This should involve receiving repairs that leave your vehicle looking and operating as close as possible to the way it did before the accident.
It also should involve receiving money that reflects your vehicle’s now reduced value in resale. Because the team at Ged Lawyers regularly works with cases like this, we know to ask for this amount from the insurance company based on the facts of the case.
Our Massachusetts Attorneys Can Also Help With Your Personal Injury Case
If another driver hit you and caused significant damage to your car, you might have suffered injuries and require medical treatment. This means that in addition to battling with the insurance company to pay for your vehicle’s repairs and for its IDV, you may qualify to seek compensation for your medical bills, loss of income, and pain and suffering.
