Just want to thank you for all your advice. I called a law firm, got some backing and threatened AMfam with court. They settled at $4000 which is better than $2200, and better than court litigation. If you need any type of testimonial on your website I would be happy to give one. Thanks for all your help in my appraisal.

I’m dealing with American Family and they’ve denied my claim. What can I do?
I need a little more information. Did they say why they denied your claim? What type of vehicle do you have?
I have a 2010 Mini Cooper S with 60,000 miles. The report I have says the diminished value is $3500. My car was hit in the rear and the frame was damaged and repaired. American Family say they returned the car to its previous condition. They don’t owe any diminished value. I’m in Portland Oregon.
I’m amazed they denied the claim. That’s nearly half what your claim should be. How was your diminished value determined? Is there a stated methodology?
I used a calculator from XXXXXXXX.com (URL removed by admin) There isn’t any information on how they determined the dv
The problem is the report isn’t credible to AmFam. That assessment company uses a formula to determine value. There is no proven formula to determine Diminished Value. So it is easy to disprove most formula based valuations. Fill out the form on your right and attach the valuation and I’ll look at it for you.
