The concept of diminished value is so new that the market for appraisers can't keep up

Although the concept of diminished value has actually been around for a long time, it didn't start to become prevalant until Carfax and Autocheck provided a way for consumers to track the history of a vehicle. Now that everyone has access to the car's accident history, the loss in value that vehicle has as a result of its history has become important. Unfortunately, individuals, attorneys, and insurance companies are having trouble finding competent, certified, and reputable appraisers. In many areas, the market is wide open but there aren't enough appraisers to go around.

When I searched for an attorney to help my parents with their car accident case. It was very important to me that they would understand everything in Spanish.
