What is Diminished Value?

Diminished value refers to the loss in a vehicle's market value following an accident and subsequent repairs. Even when a vehicle is restored to near original condition by a reputable collision repair center, its market value may still be lower compared to a similar vehicle with a clean history. This devaluation is because future buyers or traders will likely offer less for a vehicle that has been involved in an accident, regardless of the quality of the repairs.

Who Qualifies for a Diminished Value Claim in Maryland?

To file a diminished value claim in Maryland, you must meet specific criteria:

  • You must be a third-party claimant, meaning the accident was not your fault.
  • You must own or finance the vehicle (vehicles that are leased do not qualify).
  • The vehicle should be a late model, typically 5 years old or newer, with no prior accident history.
  • The claim must be made within two years from the date of the loss.
