The first thing to remember is that though it might be a right to claim diminished value and or to go to court,
the insurance company is not required to pay your claim outside of court unless the policy limits would make it where the policy holder could get sued
if they do not make an effort to settle within policy maximum limits under property damage then they failed the policy holder and it is bad faith and a big
liability for the insurance company. The second thing is no adjuster will pay 100% of the diminished value claim unless the amount is below what it is meant
to be and negligence can cause punitive damages, bad faith or other more serious problems. The main thing to remember is if you get a trade in appraisal or
print outs from online and do not get a professional report it will most likely end in a denial or a small settlement amount. The key to any claim and
especially a diminished value claim is persistence and doing everything in order. The adjuster is trying to get to know who you are and if you say or do
anything by mistake to use against you and deny everything you claim. The insurance company is most of the time very friendly in order to extract information
from you, they put you at ease in order to make you say things you would not in a normal conversation to make you get mad later and insult them also.
They are many times the most bipolar people you can imagine. The word of caution is be prepared and very cautious, if you are not prepared with the correct burden
of proof documents it will hurt your claim and/or get you denied or accused of intent to defraud.
