Injured In A Motor Vehicle Accident?
A motor vehicle accident can be one of the worst events in your life. When you or a loved one is involved in a motor vehicle accident, the injuries can be severe and devastating. At the Law Office of Morrin & Sands PLLC, we are here to help you receive the appropriate compensation that you deserve for your injuries.
Unlike other law firms, our office strives to obtain compensation for individuals involved in motor vehicle accidents, regardless of whether they are injured or not. Most attorneys are unaware of certain claims that may be made on behalf of an individual involved in a motor vehicle accident, and fail to represent their clients to the best of their abilities. For example, most law firms fail to file a claim for “diminished value.”
Diminished Value Claims in New York
A motor vehicle accident can occur in the blink of an eye, and if it’s not your fault, you may be entitled to what is known as diminished value. Have you ever wondered whether you were entitled to compensation for the difference between your car’s pre-accident value and its value after repairs?
The purpose of car insurance is to restore a car owner to their position before the accident occurred. However, it is well-known that the same car that has never been in an accident is worth more than if it were involved in an accident, regardless of whether it is repaired to its prior condition or not.
Diminished value is the reduction in a vehicle’s market value after being involved in an accident. New York is one of many states that recognizes, and enforces an individual’s claim for diminished value. However, do not expect the insurance company to help you with a diminished value claim. More times than not, a claims adjuster will tell someone that you cannot claim diminished value or that New York does not recognize such a claim.
That is where our attorneys can help. Please feel free to contact our Westbury office for a free consultation. We are more than happy to take a look at your claim and see whether our office can help. We do not get paid unless you get paid!
