Leo knew he had at least a small Fiat diminished value claim after minor damage to his new car. He found us to give him the evidence to fight without coming out of pocket hundreds of dollars!
Leo’s damages were under $2,000 so he didn’t want to invest a lot in his Fiat diminished value claim but the insurance company was willing to address the DV if he had an expert report. After looking at his claim, we valued it at about $1450 and helped him get a demand in front of the insurance company.
