The entire report is enclosed in a transparent cover and bound as a booklet.
Diminished value is an aspect of the insurance process that hasn’t been explored in depth here in Alberta. To paraphrase in summary, when a vehicle is in an accident, the stigma associated with that damage, whether heavy or light, reduces the resale value of that vehicle even if the repair is done perfectly. In addition to this, if the repair is done imperfectly, additional value can be lost as a consequence. Both of these situations are grouped into diminished value and you are legally entitled to reimbursement for these in Alberta under the Taylor vs Hrytsak precedent. If your vehicle has been in an accident and has been repaired, or if you simply want some more information, please look into our sister company, “Diminished Value of Canada”.
