Can I still receive compensation for my damaged vehicle even after extensive and proper repairs? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

 Yes, in some accidents, even after extensive repairs, the vehicle is still devalued. This is called a diminution in the value of the car. Insurers will attempt to deny diminution of value, but it may be appropriate in some cases for the insurer to pay you for the vehicle’s diminished value even after it is repaired.
