Accidents happen, it’s a part of life. Your insurance is there for you in case of a collision. However, dealing with them is not always easy. It can be stressful and exasperating, therefore it’s important to know the value of your car after the accident. Here are a couple of key points about your car value after a collision.
The value of a car depreciates after an accident. The decrease in value is dependent upon a few different variables including but not limited to; accident history, type of car, and severity of the accident. The way insurance companies determine the value is through an algorithm called the 17c formula. The formula was invented to standardized the way of calculating claims after a wreck.
Understanding your insurance is critical. Before looking into signing a contract or agreement, it is important to look and see how much coverage you have when a collision occurs.
