Hi, I need to file a diminished value claim with the insurance company and wanted to find if I hire a attorney, can his/her fees be added to the claim.
Dear Fairfax- generally legal fees are not recoverable in diminished value cases, since there is no fraud or a statute allowing that. If you have diminished value questions, my website has information that might be helpful. Good luck.
No, but your state allows DV claims, so speak to a local car accident lawyer. Avvo has a great lawyer finder tool to locate an attorney close to your home. Good luck.
