What is diminution? How do I make a claim?

Diminution refers to the potential difference between the value of a car before an accident and the value after an accident when it has been repaired.

In order to make a claim for diminution, you would need engineering evidence to support the difference in value from before and after the repairs.  You can organise this yourself or consult a solicitor to advise you of the prospects for such a claim.

We cannot provide you with legal advice in this area however, we could put you in touch with the firm of solicitors we work with who may be able to assist you further or you could seek appropriate, independent, advice if you wish to make a claim for diminution.
