Insurance Companies are Not Your Friend Alpharetta, GA
Two stressed businessmen arguing after traffic collision by their damaged cars damaged.

When you get into a car accident, the expectation is that insurance companies will take care of all aspects of your claim. While this is true in a lot of respects, it doesn’t mean you will benefit. One of the major issues with insurance providers is diminished value on vehicles.

First of all, insurance companies are businesses. It is often the case that profit comes before providing a service to customers or claimants. Agents have targets to meet. If they can legally diminish the value of your vehicle, they will use every tool at their disposal to save the company money.

Diminished Vehicle Value

For an insurance company, paying out for the repair or replacement of a vehicle is easier if value is diminished. Once your car is involved in a collision, the process of lowering worth begins. This helps the insurance company pay out less for any damage incurred in a crash.

The fact that your vehicle has been involved in an accident results in diminished value. Whether you bought the car a week ago or ten years ago doesn’t matter. Diminished value is based on the fact that a collision occurred that caused damage.

Vehicle Repairs

If an accident is serious enough to involve insurance companies, chances are your vehicle needs repairs. Damage results in diminished value which, in turn, can influence how insurance companies value your car. Without an independent assessment, you have only an agent’s determination to rely upon.

The problem is, an insurance company will consider saving money above all else. This can often result in repairs using parts that are not approved by the manufacturer. Your vehicle has already lost value due to damage. Using 3rd-partly components can further devalue a car and significantly reduce resale value.

  • Amazing! He told me early on how much money he was going to be able to get me and he was spot on. I paid a small fee to get thousands more in my diminished value claim than the insurance company was offering. Further, RJ was very easy to get in contact with. He responded to my emails almost instantly. The whole process went by so quickly once he was involved. I would recommend him to anyone.

  • My insurance company offered me 37 bucks in diminished value. My case was slightly complex due to the insurance companies appraiser being stubborn and difficult. It had to be escalated to an unbiased umpire for a final binding decision. I wasn't expecting for it to go this far however it did. I ended up getting close to 3K back. RJ is extremely professional and he fights for you. The only issue to me is his preferred method of communication which is by email. Which i became accustomed to because he responds more prompt that way. He generated a 30 to 40 page report. He works extremely hard and for that I'm appreciative.

  • RJ is Awesome! He got me 10x what the insurance company offered on a 2 year old accident. Also, I traded the car in 7 months ago so I no longer had it. If I could share this experience with every person I see I would. I’ve already told several family and friends, it’s really just unbelievable to me! If you have any question what so ever, I promise his fee will be the best $275 you’ll ever spend!!
