Diminished Value of Georgia sponsors the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association’s 2015 Auto Torts Workshop
GTLA-2015-Auto-Torts-Workshop Press Release 📄
ATLANTA (July 25, 2015) – This summer, Diminished Value of Georgia, Atlanta’s top automobile appraisal company, will be sponsoring and exhibiting at the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association’s Auto Torts Workshop. The event will be taking place at the Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort and Spa on July 30, 2015 through August 1, 2015.
Diminished Value of Georgia is a company whose mission is to help car accident victims recover financially by providing the necessary documents to file a diminished value insurance claim. Diminished value is defined as the measured loss in value that a vehicle incurs after an accident or other incident (such as fire or flood). An insurance company is required by law to reimburse the insured party for the actual amount of loss in the value of the vehicle as a result of the damage. The best way to determine the diminished value of a vehicle is to hire a reputable independent appraiser to assess the DV of the vehicle.
Diminished value differs from depreciation in that it is sudden and unexpected; depreciation is the expected loss in value of a vehicle over time. When an insured party files an auto claim, he or she should seek compensation from the insurance company for diminished value.
Attorneys hire DVGA to help their clients achieve improved settlements on their personal property claims. Diminished value is a significant, real loss their clients accrue after a car accident. With so many insurance companies underpaying on loss-in-value claims, attorneys rely on Diminished Value of Georgia’s accurate valuation reports to demand just compensation for their clients.
Diminished Value of Georgia has proudly supported the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association for many years. The association works to ensure that all Georgia citizens, families, and small businesses are never deprived of their constitutional guarantee of access to justice. Founded in 1956, the GTLA is dedicated to strengthening and upholding Georgia’s civil justice system and protecting the rights of Georgia citizens and consumers.
The GTLA Auto Torts Workshop will take place Thursday, July 30, 2015 through Saturday, August 1, 2015, at the Hilton Sandestin in Destin, Florida. Attendees will be inspired by informative sessions on a variety of topics and revitalized by the many family-friendly amenities at the resort. Guests who golf will enjoy participating in the golf tournament happening on Friday afternoon. Scheduled events also include a welcome reception on Thursday and a relaxing pool party complete with poolside cocktails and fun pool games on Saturday.
Attorneys requiring auto appraisals and helpful property damage information can visit DVGA’s dedicated attorney website where appraisals are offered to GTLA members at a discounted rate.
