• Minimum Damage. Small scrapes and dents. You’re still entitled to get the cost to repair the car so the scrapes and dents aren’t there.
  • Costs to repair. These are the costs to make your car look and operate the way it did before the accident
  • Your car is a total loss. A total loss means that the cost to repair the vehicle is more than the value of the car. Cars with high costs of repair run the risks that the repairs won’t last and also that the integrity of the car may be at risk. For this reason, if the repairs are around 80% of the car’s value, the car will be considered a total loss. If a car is totaled, you will get the value of the car as of the date of the accident.
  • Diminished Value because of repairs. Here, your car may be worth less (even after full repairs) when you sell or trade the car for a new one. Buyers don’t like to buy used cars that have been in an accident. This claim is usually for newer cars that have more than minimum damage.
  • Rental costs. You may be entitled to the cost to rent a vehicle while your vehicle is being repaired.
  • Personal damage. Damage costs for any personal property in the car or on your person. Ex. eyeglasses or a laptop computer.
  • Towing and storage costs.
  • Personal injury. If you were injured in the accident you should consult with one of our car accident lawyers.
