Short Answer: No!
I think most people get this, but I get this question all the time, so I am writing this article in an attempt to properly explain why a total loss settlement does not include diminished value.
First, let us define Diminished Value:
Diminished Value is the loss in re-sale value of a vehicle after it has been in a wreck and then repaired.
Second, let us define Total Loss:
A Total Loss occurs when the insurance company decides that they are not going to repair your vehicle.
