The following should provide a guideline of what to expect when handling a standard vehicle's property damage loss:


If your vehicle cannot be properly repaired, you are entitled to the cost of the replacement of the vehicle, including accessories.

Comparable prices for truly comparable vehicles will help you negotiate replacement of your vehicle, but remember that the prices must be for actual sales, not the asking prices. Auto dealers in similar vehicles or even the salesman that sold you your car may be helpful by providing written opinions of the true value of your vehicle.

In addition to compensation for the value of your vehicle, you are entitled to reimbursement for the tax and license costs you will incur on a replacement.

To get the maximum award for your car, you will need to convince the INSURANCE COMPANY of your vehicle's true value. You need an accident attorney who knows the law and how to recover the maximum.

Is Your Car a Total Loss?

Typically, the insurance company will try to get out of giving you a settlement, or at least minimize the amount.

You want the maximum award for your car in the quickest amount of time. This waiting period can be shortened substantially if the proper damage claim is presented to the insurance company in the proper way.

You need a auto accident attorney who knows how to make this happen.

Custom Work and Aftermarket Parts Can Make a Difference in Your Claim. Be Sure You get What Your Car is Worth.

Unfortunately the insurance company may NOT take into account the fact that your car has custom work, aftermarket parts, or is in excellent condition. The insurance company just don't understand what your car is worth which can result in you not getting the fair value for your car! Call us - we can help.

  • Obtain letters from knowledgeable persons in the automotive community;
  • Obtain help form your dealer;

  • Repair/replacement costs,
  • Extra value for a car that was in excellent condition,
