If you have been in an accident . . .
And the accident was not your fault; you are entitled to recover the loss of value your vehicle may have sustained, regardless of the completeness of the repairs.
According to Tort Law, “Compensation for damages to personal property can include the reasonable cost of repair or restoration with due allowance for any difference between the original value and the value after repairs.”
