Diminished Value Claim

The Essence of Diminished Value

Diminished value refers to the reduction in a vehicle's market value occurring after it has been involved in an accident and subsequently repaired. This reduction in value is due to the permanent stain on the vehicle’s history, despite flawless repairs. For example, consider two identical vehicles—same model, year, and condition. One has a clean history, while the other has been involved in an accident and repaired. The one with an accident history is often less desirable and thus commands a lower price in the market. This disparity can also become apparent when you attempt to trade in your vehicle, only to receive offers significantly lower than book values suggested by KBB, NADA, or similar resources.

Who Qualifies for a Diminished Value Claim in Pennsylvania?

To pursue a diminished value claim in Pennsylvania, certain criteria must be met. Here’s a checklist to determine eligibility:

  • You must be the third-party claimant, not at fault for the accident.
  • You must own or finance the vehicle; leased vehicles typically do not qualify.
  • The vehicle should be a late model (5 years old or newer)
  • Your vehicle should have had no prior accidents before.
  • The claim must be made within two years of the accident date.
