A Virginia Beach Injury Lawyer’s Guide to Property Damage After a Car Wreck
As an experienced Virginia Beach car accident lawyer who has been working on injury claims for more than 20 years, I find one of the most common questions I get from clients is about property damage after a car wreck
If I am helping you with your injury case I will answer those questions for you and make sure that the property damage process goes smoothly with the insurance company.
You are absolutely entitled to a rental car if your car is totaled or damaged in a wreck, until you receive a check for the car. That’s one of the things I can help you with. You are entitled to a comparable rental car.
If your car has been damaged you will get something called diminished value. A car that has previously been wrecked is likely to be worth less than a car that has not been damaged. Your insurance company is unlikely to tell you about this. I will help you through the process.
If your car is totaled you will probably feel ripped off because the insurance company will not give you the full value of your car before the wreck. You may have to get a car loan to get what you had before. I will do all I can as a personal injury lawyer to get a sum for your injuries that will make up for what you have lost in property damage.
