We were involved in an accident a few month back, thanks to the wonderful MS I walked out uninjured. The other party was at fault and their insurance company took full responsibility, repair to MS was $17.5k (Avio Coachcraft did a GREAT job bring MS back to live), now I'm trying to claim diminishing value. Contacted other's party's insurance AAA, and was given the advise I can't just ask for it, I have to prove my case. Originally I had 10% of the vehicle's purchase value in mind and that's what I was asking AAA adjuster to pay, but how do you prove diminishing value in Cali? Obviously the AAA claim adjust isn't going to be on my side on this one, so I'm asking people who have knowledge in this for help. Thanks in advance.
