Diminished Value

Diminished Value

Even after repairs, this car’s value is significantly less If your vehicle was involved in an accident, the value of the vehicle decreases even after it is repaired. Diminished value is the difference between the unwrecked value and the value after it is repaired due to an accident. The loss of value is almost always recoverable, but it is rarely paid by insurance companies. After the repairs, the wrecked car is worth less because it is “damaged goods” but Virginia recognizes claims for diminished value. Many insurance companies pay for the repairs, but discourage or even deny diminished value payments. The Paullin Law Firm has helped car owners recover the value from the insurance companies

Estate Planning

Estate Planning

Some people have the misconception that estate planning is only for wealthy people with large estates and numerous assets. In reality, when estate planning documents are used correctly, they allow individuals to not only dictate what should happen with their assets, but also how medical or financial decisions should be made on their behalf if they’re unable to make those decisions. If you are unable to act on your behalf — because of your health or your physical location — estate planning documents can authorize another person to help see that your affairs are kept in order. To help see that your wishes are followed, it’s important to work with an experienced Richmond estate planning attorney who can help you draft the necessary documents.
