Diminished Value claim in Oregon

Our National Headquarters is in Portland, Oregon

We are Oregon-Licensed Appraisers

In the state of Oregon, if you are in a wreck and the accident was not your fault you are entitled to file a claim for diminished value. The following cases are pertinent to the State of Oregon and Diminished Value:

In Jose Gonzales v. Farmers Insurance Company of Oregon the Oregon Supreme Court rules that insurance consumers can collect for diminished value under their own policy unless it is specificly excluded. 

Here is an excerpt from that ruling:

Jose Gonzales v. Farmers Insurance Company of Oregon, et al., (TC 9910-11479) (CA A128598) (SC S054486)

On review from the Court of Appeals in an appeal from the Multnomah County Circuit Court, Frank L. Bearden, Judge. 210 Or App 54, 150 P3d 20 (2006). The decision of the Court of Appeals is affirmed. The judgment of the circuit court is reversed, and the case is remanded to the circuit court for further proceedings. Opinion of the Court by Justice Robert D. Durham.

Today, the Oregon Supreme Court interpreted a collision insurance policy and concluded that that particular policy's use of the term "repair" obligated the insurer to restore a damaged insured vehicle to its condition prior to the collision, or to compensate the insured for any reduction of the vehicle's value resulting from the collision.

Defendants Farmers Insurance Company of Oregon, Farmers Insurance Exchange, Farmers Group, Inc., and Mid-Century Insurance Company issued an automobile insurance policy to plaintiff Jose Gonzales. Plaintiff's vehicle suffered damage in an accident, and defendants paid for repairs, but the repairs did not restore the vehicle to its pre-accident condition. Plaintiff filed suit against defendants to recover compensation for the diminished value of his vehicle. Defendants acknowledged that the policy obligated them to "repair or replace" the vehicle, but argued that the term "repair" did not incorporate a duty to pay for a loss in value. The trial court agreed, and granted summary judgment to defendants. The Court of Appeals reversed and held that, under the terms of the policy, defendants were obligated to compensate plaintiff for his vehicle's diminution in value due to the accident.

Dunmire Motor Company v. Oregon Mutual Fire Insurance Company, 166 Ore 690 (1941) the Oregon Supreme Court ruled that the insured was entitled to the difference between the pre and post-loss value of the vehicle and the proper repair of the car may not accomplish this result.

In Millers Mutual Fire Insurance Co. v. Wildish Construction Co., 306 Or. 102, 758 P.2d 836 (Or. 07/06/1988) the court found that with regard to real property the cost of repair is a more accurate measure of damages than diminution of value.

In order to recover the losses you must have a diminished value appraisal completed by a professional automobile appraisal company, such as Autoloss. Also, if the other party does not have insurance and you carry uninsured/ underinsured motorist coverage you may be able to claim diminished value under your policy. Autoloss can help the Oregon Consumer in many ways. Autoloss’s Corporate Headquarters is in Oregon. CEO Monica Fisher is a licensed Oregon Automobile Appraiser. Call 877-655-1661 so Autoloss can help you recover your losses today. Also, the statue of limitations for filing a diminished value claim in Oregon is 6 years from the date of loss.

    Thanks for all the help. I am happy with the settlement of $5,600 and I will call Autoloss if I ever have problems with Farmers again. I feel this settlement is much fairer.

    Hi Terry,

    Thanks for all of your hard work. My lawyer said we would have not gotten the $29,000 settlement in court without your expert witness testimony. I know it was a pain to come to Houston, Texas, but it really helped my case.

  • Steve Fortgang, Hollywood, Florida

    It has occurred to me that 'John Q. Public' knows nothing of what diminished value is. In fact, if it weren't for my son's friend saying to me that I should make a claim… I too would never know.

  • Marshall Goldstein, New York, New York

    I would like to thank you for the fine job you did in settling my claim with State Farm Insurance. The settlement of $10,000 was in the ballpark of what I thought my vehicle was worth based upon dealer retail price.

  • Josh Chovanec, Ruston, LA

    My G8GT was hit by a lady in town. The damages were $2,7xx and I started a DV claim. The DV agent started to give me hell, so I immediately went to Autoloss. They came through with a great report. I supplied the report to the ladies insurance and they gave me the run around for months, while Autoloss continued great customer service and supplied facts. You must take your time and know Autoloss is going to build a perfect case along the way with every error the insurance company makes. I made sure to only communicate through email to document every step with the DV Agent. You have to continue to push the insurance company with these facts to make them work to your benefit. It finally came down to the DV agent drawing a line in the sand with a low ball offer. So Autoloss helped lead me towards reporting my case to the State Insurance Commissioner. I packaged together everything Autoloss supplied me with and my communications with the DV agent. I was able to pin point the errors and tactics the insurance company was using against me, due to the education Autoloss provided me with. Needless to say the state is now investigating my case with the insurance company and an insurance company manager called me to settle today at 3.5 times more than the original offer the DV agent drew the line on. Erik is amazing at Autoloss. He always makes time for your call and comes through in every way. If you need any insurance help, contact Autoloss. They are amazing.

    I am so happy with your service I wish I could hug you. After being screwed by Safeco you got me $3,000 more on my 1988 Ford Truck.

    Safeco was trying to offer me only $2,500 after I had put a ton of money into my truck. Now, I can get my truck back and get it fixed.

    I am very happy.

  • K. Jain, Atlanta, Georgia

    Dear Monica,

    Thank you so much for helping my case for appealing the amount that the insurance company had offered as diminished value.

    I would really like to recommend you and the services provided by Autoloss. Not just did you all get the job done but you also negotiated a higher amount than I was anticipating. I had wanted to appeal this just for the principle of it, but you deftly negotiated and got me twice the amount the insurance company had offered me initially to settle the claim.

    Thank you for talking with me patiently to calm all my hesitation and "suspicions" regarding this process. :) You were most helpful in providing all the information that I had needed to learn about how this is handled in the insurance industry world.

    To anyone reading this review, don't hesitate to have autoloss do your assessment. Have faith and patience in their abilities to turn this around in your favour! I am indeed very pleased with the outcome.

    Thank you again!

    Thank You Autoloss.

    Two weeks after sending the report to the other insurance co., they paid us $ 6,000.00 with no questions asked, above the minimum in the report. I will highly recommend your services to friends & family.

    Thanx again, your fee is well worth the reward. We got what we deserve but would not have gotten anything if we didn't pursue this. Now our car is paid off.

    Very rarely do you find a company that will, so to speak, 'go to bat for you' when you're up against an insurance company and get results. Gary Fisher of Appraiser Group has worked on two cases for us so far, the 1st case he got the insurance company to pay more than 200% over what their original offer was and in the 2nd case more than 100%.

    Hi Monica,

    I want to inform you that I've finally settled my DV claim with Berkley Risk for $19,577.00 which is a little less than your appraisal but I feel is a reasonable compromise especially considering that I would have settled for a lot less had I not hired you to do the appraisal for me.

    Terry, thanks for your help.

    I settled for $2929, which was your estimate and Farmers' divided by two, but they said as policy they would not reimburse for the appraisal. I am actually fine with it as prior to talking with you I would have not gotten anything at all. I gave your contact to someone who had their car backed into.

    I'm so glad I've got Autoloss to help me with my Diminished Value Claim! Autoloss' service was consistently fast, professional, and friendly. They helped me from the beginning, all the way until successful resolution of my diminished value claim. They sure are experts in their area, they know what insurance companies say, and what to do and respond in order to settle for a fair amount, not a tiny unfair amount insurance companies offer first. My sincere thanks to Erik, Monica, and the rest of Autoloss Team for their superb service.

  • Ron Schneider, Addyston, Ohio


    I would like to thank you and Autoloss for your help on resolving my 2009 Honda Civic LX total loss claim with Nationwide.

    After two months of working with Nationwide, their best offer was $8,093. I reviewed values in local markets to replace the car and kept coming up with a value of $10,000+. When I reached an impasse with Nationwide, the next course of action was to go to independent appraisals. I called Monica @ Autoloss. We discussed the vehicle and she gave me a rough quote.

    Looking back now, I wish I would have gone to Autoloss considerably sooner. Monica and Nationwide's independent appraiser came to an agreed value of $10,200, resulting in a $2100 (25%) increase.

    Monica handled the case quickly and fought to get me a fair value.

    Thanks Monica.

    Michigan: Additional $5,000


    Thanks for all you have done on my claim. The additional $5,000 on my claim will be wisely used. Now I can go buy another brand new Cadillac.

    Thanks for not letting AAA get away with anything.

    Hello Monica,

    I wanted to take a second to thank you for your hard work. I was really happy with my settlement from Allstate. It was money well spent. I paid $249, and got an additional $4,700 more. Not too bad for a minor investment.

    You were very professional in your dealings with all parties concerned and, at times, went beyond what normally is expected in order to bring my claim to a successful conclusion.

    Before time gets away from me, I just want to take the time to say thank you for everything. I understand that it's your job, but patience does not come easy to many and you certainly held up. I will definitely recommend your company to others in the future.

    I have already taken it upon myself to make sure every one I work with and close friends are aware that they may qualify for a claim and where to go for information.

    Have a wonderful day and happy holidays!

  • Pat L. Meyers, Pompano Beach, Florida

    I highly recommended Autoloss. The company is an asset to any customer wanting to get the full amount of DV that they are owed. I hired Autoloss after an insurance company refused to offer a sufficient amount for diminished value. With a report from Autoloss I was able to have the insurance company pay me the full amount of diminished value I was owed.

  • Pratic Shah, Seattle, Washington

    I had a (NOT MY FAULT) car accident in the month of May this year and eventually the insurance company had to scrap my brand-new SUV. I was highly disappointed with my insurance company after the prior valuation of my scrapped car. The initial offer given to me by my insurance company was highly unacceptable to me.

    I then hired Autoloss to help me fight against my insurance company. Monica and Erik were right on spot from the first day, and in a matter of just 3 weeks they got me an offer which was 150% of what my insurance company offered me initially. That's more than 6000 bucks more. I am very glad I hired Autoloss and would highly recommend Autoloss to everyone who is trapped by the cheap gimmicks played by Insurance companies. Thank you Autoloss team (Monica and Erik) !!!!!!."

    Thanks !!!!!!

  • Houston, Texas: Thank you for the diminished value estimate

    I would like to thank you for the diminished value estimate. Finally, as of yesterday, Progressive agreed to totaling my Porsche. Had it not been for your estimate, I feel my relentless hounding them to total the vehicle would not have been as effective.

    Thanks again,
